Title: Ad hoc networks ascend to the airwaves
Author: Patrick Mannion
Publication: EE Times
Publication Date: 2/26/2001
Abstract or Excerpt: Talks about the trials and tribulations of the implementation of IEEE-802.11b and Bluetooth. Ad hoc networking, as a holy grail of product manufacturers, where objects are able to talk to each other and share resources, is only slowly coming to pass. Bluetooth is still having major technological issues, although over 2000 vendors are going to be offering products. Other technologies are HomeRF, which made up more than 80% of the wireless home networking products sold in 2000, and other formats, such as orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM), which some vendors are trying to get the FCC to allow within the 2.45 Ghz band.

Title: Tangible Bits: Towards Seamless Interfaces between People, Bits and Atoms
Author: Hiroshi Ishii and Brygg Ullmer
Publication: Proceedings of Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI '97), ACM, Atlanta, March 1997, pp. 234-241
Abstract or Excerpt: This paper presents our vision of Human Computer Interaction (HCI): "Tangible Bits." Tangible Bits allows users to "grasp & manipulate" bits in the center of users' attention by coupling the bits with everyday physical objects and architectural surfaces. Tangible Bits also enables users to be aware of background bits at the periphery of human perception using ambient display media such as light, sound, airflow, and water movement in an augmented space. The goal of Tangible Bits is to bridge the gaps between both cyberspace and the physical environment, as well as the foreground and background of human activities.

Title: Location-Based Computing: Wherever You Go, There You Are
Author: Kevin Werbach
Publication: Release 1.0 (Esther Dyson's Monthly Report), Volume 18, No. 6
Publication Date: 6/28/2000
Abstract or Excerpt: Computers have traditionally lacked the ability to influence and be influenced by the surrounding environment. With the growth of location-sensitive services and applications, the physical and the virtual are merging. Location-based computing is becoming real thanks to advances in mobile devices, wireless connectivity and position-detection technologies. In this issue, we examine several developments in this area, including mobile city guides; global positioning system (GPS) and wireless phone triangulation technologies; location-based e-commerce; and context-sensitive applications for cars, vending machines and elsewhere.

Title: The Social Life of Routers: Applying Knowledge of Human Networks to the Design of Computer Networks
Author: Valdis Krebs
Publication: The Internet Protocol Journal, Cisco Publications
Publication Date: 12/1/2000
Abstract or Excerpt: We often forget that computer networks are put in place to support human networks -- person-to-person exchanges of information, knowledge, ideas, opinions, insights, and advice. This article looks at a technology that was developed to map and measure human networks -- social network analysis -- and applies some of its principles and algorithms to designing computer networks. And as we see more peer-to-peer (P2P) models of computer-based networks, the P2P metrics in human network analysis become even more applicable.
