  • Connected Living Rooms, Contentious Networks

    by Jim Cady, Santi Pierini, Sebastian Haley, Philip Kearney and Blake Lewin

    The celestial jukebox. Cloud gaming. On-demand movies on your mobile phone. The dream of having all the entertainment you want as soon as you want it, has never been so close. There’s just one catch: network contention. You know it by many forms: A spinning hourglass; a “Buffering” window; a stuttering video. Though full of promise, cloud-based, streaming entertainment is still a long way from the seamless, instant response we’ve come to expect from a DVD player or a console game system.

    Why the slow-down? Part of it has to do with delays on the open Internet. But a surprising amount of it has to do with technology embedded in our TVs, home networks and set-top boxes. The explosion in entertainment is stressing our home networking technology to its limits. Every application wants all your bandwidth at the same time. It’s the “tragedy of the commons” right in your living room.

    But help is on the way. In this panel, leading experts on home networking and media distribution will reveal the sometimes surprising causes of streaming media hiccups in the home, and technologies that could make buffering delays a thing of the past.

  • Social Networking: Giving Cancer Patients a Voice

    by Brandon Lee

    Their Story Is Our Story (TSOS) is inspired by witnessing my dad’s fight against cancer. Sharing our experiences helps keep his memory alive, and hopefully, provides comfort and support to those in similar situations. Each cancer journey is unique and deserves to be told. Their stories are our stories.
    My project aims to support those affected by this horrible disease. They can connect with others in similar situations through a website where they will be able to share their cancer stories and their loved ones’ story while giving and receiving support. Think of it as a “Cancer Facebook.” A TSOS Profile allows cancer patients and their loved ones to share status updates, pose questions and post inspirational quotes. Individuals can further their relationships and stories by creating groups and forums. Getting involved with TSOS online is simple and quick.
    In addition to an online and print presence, TSOS’s goal is to become a pillar in the community by holding cancer awareness events and providing college scholarships.
    TSOS will host community events such as cancer walks, concerts and sports competition fundraisers. These ideas would raise cancer awareness in the community and bring the community together for the cause.
    My dad will always be an inspiration to me. Through TSOS I can continue his story and maintain the connection that I’ve had with him. His story will live on and as TSOS grows we will all contribute to a story that will all be ours.
