The 2013 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp 2013) is the result of a merger of the two most renown conferences in the field: Pervasive and UbiComp. While it retains the name of the latter in recognition of the visionary work of Mark Weiser, its long name reflects the dual history of the new event. - http://www.ubicomp.org/ubicomp2013/ http://www.ubicomp.org/ubicomp2013/
ISWC 2013 - The International Symposium on Wearable Computers (ISWC) is a conference dedicated to cutting-edge research in wearable technologies, and is the premier forum for wearable computing and issues related to on-body and worn mobile technologies. Every year, ISWC brings together researchers, product vendors, fashion designers, textile manufacturers, users, and related professionals to share information and advances in wearable computing - http://www.iswc.net/iswc13/organizers.html http://www.iswc.net/iswc13/organizers.html
A small, dragonfly-like drone that hovers like a helicopter, but can still fly like an airplane? Best of both worlds for a mobile sensor platform. http://www.geek.com/articles/gadgets/this-tiny-robotic-dragonfly-drone-only-costs-119-20121220/
Drones to generate excitement in STEM education, teach science concepts. Was too busy helping the students work the AR Drone, but I do make a cameo as the man in the suit. http://illinoishomepage.net/fulltext?nxd_id=448582

Still the most progressive community of eLearning thinkers that I've been involved with. This is like getting a new clubroom - and a good excuse to re-engage with many of you who never stopped active involvement in leveraging of the web for learning.
It would be interesting to compare notes about what makes communities work or not work, but it may be a matter of meet / not meet expectations. I'm a believer in the berry bush. The idea is to set off a space (with berries and briars) where people can come and take the berries that appeal to them, and that are worth the effort expended, never mind the thorns, and never mind what they don't take.
Inspired by Matthew Schroyer and #DroneJChat I lumped some of the positive stories we have run together in a free ebook. It should update as time passes. https://www.google.com/producer/editions/CAowvqH7Aw/dronejchat_droneweek
you-know, the thing that made TALO work in the beginning was the simple feature of being able to join people up without their approval, and having the audacity to do that. Then posting a balance between controversial posts that enough people would bite on, and helpful how-tos on a range of accessible and easy to use technology. These two subjects equalled FRESH in the very stale world of eLearning 2004.
Is there anyway we can set TALO up all across the web and feed it in and out at each location? How can people post to the emailGroup and this G+ at the same time? I think it can be done by posting to the G+ and adding the eGroup's email. How can the LinkedIn group catch the messages, and post in from there? How might a Facebook group get connected? Twitter? I know the Google Group has an RSS feed, and that feed could be picked up in Facebook I think. And if the FB group had the Twitter widget on, then posts there could get crossed to Twitter and LinkedIn.. If we can work it out, TALO would be hot. http://au.linkedin.com/groups/Teach-Learn-Online-4346453
"...The AggieAir Flying Circus is a service center at the Utah Water Research Laboratory which provides high resolution, multispectral aerial imagery using a small, unmanned aerial system called AggieAir. Because AggieAir is a low-cost, easy-to-use platform it is able to map small areas quicker, more frequently, at finer resolution, and at a smaller cost than conventional remote sensing platforms (satellite and manned aircraft). Furthermore, AggieAir is independent of a runway, which gives the user the ability to launch the aircraft from virtually anywhere (see videos). Some applications for AggieAir include monitoring of soil moisture and evapotranspiration in irrigated agriculture, riparian habitat mapping, surveying construction projects, wetland mapping and monitoring, fish and wildlife tracking, etc." - http://aggieair.usu.edu/ http://aggieair.usu.edu/
Aerial Drones Give NOAA Scientists a New Perspective - "...From a rare rocky outcrop on the otherwise ice-covered surface of Livingston Island, near the end of the peninsula that Antarctica extends like a tentacle toward South America, a team of scientists from NOAA's Southwest Fishery Science Center is about to launch a whole new era in marine mammal research. They just have to wait for the wind to die down." - http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/stories/2012/10/10_03_12wayne_perryman.html http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/stories/2012/10/10_03_12wayne_perryman.html
"...Massimo Banzi helped invent the Arduino, a tiny, easy-to-use open-source microcontroller that's inspired thousands of people around the world to make the coolest things they can imagine -- from toys to satellite gear. Because, as he says, "You don't need anyone's permission to make something great." - Massimo Banzi co-founded Arduino, which makes affordable open-source microcontrollers for interactive projects, from art installations to an automatic plant waterer. - http://www.ted.com/talks/massimo_banzi_how_arduino_is_open_sourcing_imagination.html http://www.ted.com/talks/massimo_banzi_how_arduino_is_open_sourcing_imagination.html
"...In his lab at Penn, Vijay Kumar and his team build flying quadrotors, small, agile robots that swarm, sense each other, and form ad hoc teams -- for construction, surveying disasters and far more. At the University of Pennsylvania, Vijay Kumar studies the control and coordination of multi-robot formations" - http://www.ted.com/talks/vijay_kumar_robots_that_fly_and_cooperate.html http://www.ted.com/talks/vijay_kumar_robots_that_fly_and_cooperate.html
