Hello, I am Robert G. Male. Welcome to TechStop. Here you will find links that I think are of interest.
Furthermore these are links that I want to keep track of because they have given me either ideas or some other form of
inspiration for my writing. Links are listed in order lowest to highest both in the date they are given and the order
in which they appear (meaning: read them from the bottom up for a certain day's list). Some of these sites may require
you to sign up for free. Without further ado, the links...

3) Augmented Reality in a Contact Lens (via IEEE)
also Augmented Reality in a Contact Lens (via Vizworld)
augmented reality, future, hardware,
HUD, nanotechnology, privacy,
- This could one of the holy grails of augmented reality, at least on the back end, the
hardware end. It carries a little more privacy than glasses as the display technology, and a lot more than projector based systems,
holographic or not. This is wild stuff. Beyond the whole heads up display capabilities there are also biometric sensor possible.
The immediacy and ease of use of a display system like this could be the foothold needed for ubiquitous computing.
2) How China's '50 Cent Army' Could Wreck Web 2.0

- Leave it to China to figure out how to mobilise a massive propaganda effort online. Whether
it is a terrible challenge or potential blow to Web 2.0 remains to be seen but the potential is there. What happens when any group
loyal to any idea sets it mind to influence the system? It doesn't have to be sinister, but it would have to be counter to the
normal rules of popular determination, otherwise popular determination is all it would be and that would be indicative of the will
of the people or consumer base. This sort of spectre looms over the stock market as well. There is lot of potential here for conflict
and shading or flavour to settings and plots.
1) Hubble: Monitoring Internet Reachability in Real-Time
also Where are the net's dark corners?
Tags: affect, communication,
implications, infrastructure, Internet,
- That packets fail and requests don't always get an answer, the bits lost somewhere in transit,
is not surprising. Physical failures or software causes don't matter, but the idea that these spots of incommunication reach a level
worth comparing to a black hole is interesting. Even if it's horribly expansive hyperbole to compare these failing spot to the
gargantuan super powerful space phenomena, consider the implications if it was a figuratively precise comparison.
