The paper discusses the current state and development proposals for Smart Cities and Future Internet projects. Definitions of a Smart City can vary but usually tend to suggest the use of innovative Info-Communication technologies such as the Internet of Things and Web 2.0 to deliver more effective and efficient public service
s that improve living and working conditions and create more sustainable urban environments. Our goal is to analyze the current proposals from the developer’s point of view, highlight the really new elements, the positions borrowed from the existing tools
as well as propose some new extensions. We would like to discuss the possible extensions for the existing proposals and describe add-ons that, by our opinion, let keep
the future research inline with the modern approaches in the web development domain.

The paper describes the current state on M2M communications and targets mostly Smart Metering Communication Mandate and Open API from ETSI. We provide a description for the current state of this API as well as propose some extensions we are working on. Our proposals are oriented to more tight integration of M2M API and modern web development tools and approaches. Also this paper outlines some practical systems being implemented locally (Russia, Latvia) and suggests the prospect directions for the joint projects in M2M area.

In Facebook API searches for places and pages using the graph API no longer work.
Is it some global disaster with geo search?

How does it work? Point two browsers (two phones, for example) to the same URL: http://pair.linkstore.ru
You can use the following QR-code:
You can see the following:
The picture will be the same in the second browser. Just a code should be different:
This random code will be used for pairing two devices. It is the schema similar to Bluetooth pairing. On the screen (phone) that should display the data (be linked to another phone/screen in slave mode) type the code presented on the second phone. You do not need to type anything on the second (master) phone.
Now our slave screen is ready to accept data:
As soon as the code in entered, the second screen (master) will be updated automatically:
Type any text and press Push button on the master screen. You (your pal) will see data on the slave screen:
It is a basic example that transfers text data. Technically it is possible to pass any data available in the browser. What you can transfer right now:
- just type any text. All connected slaves phones will see that
- type any phone number. It will be presented as a clickable link on the slave screen (screens)
- type any URL. E.g. http://servletsuite.com Slave screen will show a clickable link
- type any email address. Slave screen will show a clickable link
- type the following command t:some_name_from_Twitter. E.g.: t:t411. Slave screen (screens) will show the link to that account in Twitter (http://twitter.com/t411 in our example). So, your pals will be able to read your feed, follow it, etc.
- type the following command f:some_name_from_Facebook. The same as above but for Facebook. Slave screen (screens) will show the link to that profile in Facebook. So, your pals will be able to read your feed, subscribe, etc.
- type the following command v:some_name_from_Vkontakte. The same as above but for Vkontakte. Slave screen (screens) will show the link to that profile in Vkontakte. So, your pals will be able to read your feed, subscribe, etc.

The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of infrastructure, options, and tradeoffs for the parts of the data ecosystem that deal with generating, storing, transmitting, and sharing data. In addition to providing an overview, the goal is to learn what the pain points are, so we can address them. -

Just mark a place, type a question (suggestion, information etc.) – in other words create an initiation for the discussion and get unique link for the map with embedded forum. After that you can share this link with your partners/colleges, print in your blog / twitter etc. – it depends on your own decision only – who you want to see among readers. And after that you can just follow to the discussion.
No registration required. Technically, it is Google Maps + cloud forums from Disqus.
You can discuss some geo points, POI’s (points of interests – shops, bars etc.) or, for example, create a private forum devoted so some meeting in the selected place.
Any discussion could be copied right to your mobile phone as HTML5 mobile web application via QR-codes.
Just for example – forum for Golden Apple bar in Moscow
Initially, mashup ( http://geotalk.linkstore.ru ) is trying to detect your location (as per W3C spec). If you know that forums should be created in some particular area, just set additional parameters for the above-mentioned URL:
lat - a latitude
lng – a longitude
zml – an initial zoom level
hl – a language for map
E.g. create forums in London
P.S. check out also our similar mashups: City forums and Mobile forum
