Bad hosting

It is our worst experience with hosting. Our site is completely down. Their "support" is trying to reinstall Tomcat for 6 hours already. No idea, what do they smoke ...

NFC Screen

an interesting technology - NFC tags on the screen:

As I guess, their activation could be synchronized with the video. Some like "shopping by example".

Where Are You Now?

Our mashup WAYN (Where Are You Now) has been redesigned.

This mobile web mashup lets you share location info as a signature for messages. There is no identification, there are no third party servers with customers data. It is just a direct delivery location information to the target party. Both sender and receiver are unknown for the system. The whole transmission is performed outside of WAYN.

Some illustrations:

1. Share location info. It could be detected automatically or set manually:

2. Receiver will see tho markers (his own position as well as sender’s location):

You can get mode details on the help page. P.S. For monitoring several positions simultaneously you can use WATN (Where Are They Now) service. It uses the same idea sharing location info without third party servers. As per others implementations for this approach check out Geo Messages

Noise enhances information transfer

"A naive understanding of the effect of noise on information transmission is that stochastic components decrease the quality of information processing in the system. On the contrary this study demonstrates that generic packet-delivery undertaken by a local navigation rule in a complex network can benefit from the presence of a topological noise (random rewiring of links) and/or a dynamic noise component" - an interesting article from Nature

Wired Smart Home

Our new paper: M.Schneps-Schneppe, A.Maximenko, D. Namiot, and D.Malov "Wired Smart Home: Energy metering, security, and emergency issues", Ultra Modern Telecommunications and Control Systems and Workshops (ICUMT), 2012 4th International Congress on, 2012, pp.405-410, DOI:10.1109/ICUMT.2012.6459700

This paper discusses the specific area of M2M applications - Wired Smart Home. It contains the overview of requirements to Wired Smart Home in the scope of energy metering, security, and emergency communications. We consider ETSI activities on M2M standardization, Open Metering System specification, and Emergency Communications. In the field of software issues, we offer a newer web tool - Web Intents as a modern enhancement of M2M middleware. Also, the experience in Wired Smart Home implementation is given.

Google App Engine projects

An interesting list of projects based on Google App Engine. For example, Livehoods - a new way to conceptualize the dynamics, structure, and character of a city by analyzing the social media its residents generate.

We are using Google App Engine in T411 project

Big or Long?

A special formation for big data - long time series. Actually, there is a discussion: is it a common use case or just an exception.
