  2. Holoportation is a new type of 3D capture technology that allows high-quality 3D models of people to be reconstructed, compressed and transmitted anywhere in the world in real time. When combined with mixed reality displays such as HoloLens, this technology allows users to see, hear, and interact with remote participants in 3D as if they are actually present in the same physical space. Communicating and interacting with remote users becomes as natural as face-to-face communication.

  3. a guy gets a copy of a trade rag from another guy that has a paid subscription. publishers of trade rag find out. Sue the guy. Win. Get awarded $2K punitive damages PLUS the cost of a court-ordered corporate subscription to the trade rag.

    "A business that is entirely reliant on providing content behind a paywall clearly has an interest in ensuring that access to that content is limited to subscribers to the extent possible. But does this mean that no other access to the content can be tolerated? A person who has legally purchased a book may lend it to another to read. Is there room for the law adopt an equivalent approach for content behind pay walls?"

  7. George Veletsianos, an associate professor at British Columbia’s Royal Roads University who studies education technology, thinks that course trailers can empower scholars to reach new and wider audiences. The most successful videos are viewed by a few thousand people online — minuscule figures compared with viral YouTube fodder, but impressive for courses that may enroll only a few dozen students. Richard Hunt’s video has almost 100 views on YouTube so far. "To some degree, I’m not convinced people are going to watch it," Mr. Hunt says, but he’s still glad students can. "If they want the engagement, it’s there."

    Videos designed for outside audiences might also have an impact within the classroom, says Mr. Veletsianos. "Once we consider a different medium, we might change the way we do things. We might expand our tool kit of teaching."

  10. Cloud computing can and does mean different things to different people. The common
    characteristics most interpretations share are on-demand scalability of highly available and
    reliable pooled computing resources, secure access to metered services from nearly anywhere,
    and displacement of data and services from inside to outside the organization. While aspects of
    these characteristics have been realized to a certain extent, cloud computing remains a work in
    progress. This publication provides an overview of the security and privacy challenges pertinent
    to public cloud computing and points out considerations organizations should take when
    outsourcing data, applications, and infrastructure to a public cloud environment.
