Today Yudan and I participated in a live radio chat at Big Data Republic called “Locking Up Your Cloud: Security in the Ether”. The focus of the conversation was (as the name suggests) on best security practices to observe when migrating data to the cloud. The conversation did not provide any life changing revelations; it was mostly a checklist of what to consider when migrating to the clout. But there were several points that were brought up which we should keep in mind as we continue moving our data into the cloud. Here's the highlights.
Big Data Republic is holding a radio event that is focused on cloud security. They are also giving out Starbucks Cards for free.

We'll be conducting ResearchBroker Open house today from 3 to 5 pm on the library 2nd floor. There will be cookies and the opportunity to chat with the team about your research passions and how ResearchBroker can help you.
Please pass on this invite to anyone you think might be interested.
Thank you !
My presentation was in a session called the "Video Session". The session was in a small room of seating capacity for 25 people. The room was mostly full.
The questions/feedback I received were mostly on the tool itself and less so much on the analysis:
- Does it work on mobile phone?
- How do you show the discussion on the mobile phone since there is only as much space for the video ?
- Where do you host videos?
- Do the Youtube video someone pulls up, also gets stored on your server ?
- What about users uploading copyright content ?
- Is this free? How do you manage cos...

I've arrived in Rome, the site for 12th Annual IEEE Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies. The conference begins tomorrow, so I walked around nearby today. On the first day, the city felt like a maze, with little visible street names, carved on the wall of the first building in a street. Surprisingly, I met an Indian cab driver in my first cab ride.
After checking in at the hotel, I got some time to see the Colosseum. Standing there, looking at the Colosseum, it was not hard to imagine the intensity of the arena during the gladiator contests.
While asking for road directions, I ...
This morning I watched the recording from a webinar given last night titled "Empiricism and Constructivism in Distance Learning: Collaborative Socialization" given by Ben Manning of the Blake Design Group. (Kate had written a blog post about it last week.) I've embedded the recording below (but if anyone knows how to grab it to put it on Vialogues, that would be cool).
