Smart move by Obama Campaign , Launches Iphone Application

Obama campaign launched a new iphone application called Obama 08 over the weekend. This is a real smart move considering there are around 4 million iphone users.

The free application is compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch. It will organize your contacts by key battleground states, and measures statistics to see how you are doing compared to other leading callers. It also provides you with information about the campaign via text messages and e-mail, offers coverage of national and local campaign news, helps you find local events, share the information by e-mail, and get maps and directions. You can also use the application to browse videos and photos from the campaign.

The Internet and technology is positioned to play a huge role in elections. Probably Mccain campaign does not get it.

Google Project – 10 to the power 100th

Robert Collier (don’t know who he is) once said “A single idea / the sudden flash of a thought / may be worth a million dollars.” Well , Google has just proved this to be true . Infact Google is offering 10 Million Dollars for that “Single Idea”  which can change the world by helping as many people as possible. 

Google has recently launched project 10100 (pronounced “Project 10 to the 100th”). Here is how it works

1. Send in your idea before October 20th

2. Selection of one hundred ideas will be put forward with, the public, to choose twenty semi-finalists. Then an advisory board will select up to five final ideas.

3.  Google will bring those ideas to life.

Criteria:

  • Reach: How many people would this idea affect?
  • Depth: How deeply are people impacted? How urgent is the need?
  • Attainability: Can this idea be implemented within a year or two?
  • Efficiency: How simple and cost-effective is your idea?
  • Longevity: How long will the idea’s impact last?

Will ” Dream” be the iphone Killer or is it a big hype?

Metamaterials – Privacy at stake ?

Have you heard of the term “metamaterial”? It is considered to be an emerging technology that has the potential to change the way we live today. Although the first metamaterial was developed in the late 1940’s , recently researchers in the UK and US put forward a blueprint for building a cloaking device. Light as we know can be either reflected(mirror) or transmitted (see through glass). What meta material does is bend light around in unexpected directions . In simple terms ” Things made out of metamaterial can make you invisible”. Sounds interesting? , think again. 

We could very well have invisisbility cloaks to make the wearer invisible and snooping around. Or government keeping a watch on whatever you do in your daily life by clocking listening devices , cameras in public (or maybe private places). Security agencies all over are already spying on internet users LEGALLY in the name of safety (which is a different debate all togather). 

Maybe its time we start discussing about it.
