Posted in Uncategorized on October 21, 2009 by alangalvan

1) Cloud Computing – virtualized resources as a service over the internet.

2) Advanced Analytics – measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of internet data for purposes of understanding and optimizing web usage

3) Client Computing – application or system that accesses a remote service on another computer known as a server by way of a network.

4) IT for Green – environmentally sustainable computing that strives to achieve economic viability and improved system performance

5) Reshaping the Data Center – (server farm) facility used to house computer systems and associated components, such as telecommunications and storage systems

6) Social Computing – computer science that is concerned with the intersection of social behavior and computational systems.

7) Active Monitoring – active monitor: device in a token ring that performs network-management duties, such as keeping track of tokens and weeding out frames that would otherwise circulate indefinitely

8 ) Flash Memory – non volatile memory storage that can be electrically erased and reprogrammed. mainly used for general storage and transfer of data between computers and other digital products.

9 ) Virtualization for availability – virtual machine: a software implementation of a machine (computer) that executes programs like a real machine.

10) Mobile Apps – internet applications that run on smart phones and other mobile devices

i think cloud computing, mobile apps, virtualization, and IT for green will be trends in 2010.


West Point Bridges

Posted in Uncategorized on October 20, 2009 by alangalvan

Cheapest – it is cheap because it is light and very thin, it also has very few things to hold it up but it is still safe. i dont think it would be able to be built in real life because it can only support an average truck and most likely more than a truck would pass over it so it would collapse.  price: $190,944.08

Most expensive – it is huge and super thick. there is a lot of  unnecessary things that hold it up its safe and can hold a lot of weight but its weight is also very great so im not sure if it can be built in real life. it could be if someone wanted to spend a lot of unnecessary money on this one bridge but i doubt someone will. if there was and it was built it would last some time but i think one day it would collapse because of its own weight combined with the weight of everyone on it. price: $16,432,173.82

Kids and Laptops

most would be like “cool a lap top” but they wouldn’t be too excited. most people in the U.S. have internet access so only a few would be really excited. i think some would sell that lap top because the one they already have is better. others would keep it and use it if it is faster or better then the one they have. the few without a computer would be a little less stressed with homework when they have internet, they could simply look it up. the people who don’t have a computer already would be happy such as the kids in Uruguay.

What I Would Do

I would want a year long game design class.You could learn how to design a game and then play it. To learn how to make the creatures and people you design to move and interact. Not only design games but also little flash movies and also how to add sound to it such as voices or background music. You could also learn how to make a cartoon. It would be cool to learn how to edit videos so that it looks like you have a superpower or theres a fake explosion like on some youtube videos.
