Adaptive Path + Mozilla Labs = Aurora Concept

securitas securitas writes  |  about 6 years ago

securitas writes "San Francisco experience design firm Adaptive Path unveiled its Aurora Web browser concept, its first venture into open source design. Aurora focuses on context awareness, natural interaction, continuity and multi-user applications (video after the link). It was developed in conjunction with Mozilla Labs as part of the Concept Series. With leading design firms dipping their toes into open source software, how long will it be before free software's poor user experience becomes a thing of the past?"

NYT Night Life Reprogrammed (Party Like it's 1998)

securitas securitas writes  |  about 6 years ago

securitas writes "Almost a decade after the Internet bubble collapsed, the New York Times reports on the revival of the Silicon Alley technology social scene — with a twist. It's now about substance. Gone are the "glitzy club ... minor celebrities, go-go dancers, an open bar and pricey giveaways" in favor of unconferences, Ignite, Pecha Kucha, ideas and "a night life that involves actually talking to creative people doing exciting things." Most major cities have a geek social scene like the NYC Soldering Championship [VIDEO] featured in the article."

securitas writes "The Associated Press reports that former President Gerald Ford, 93, died at his home on Dec. 26, 2006. Ford inherited the presidency from disgraced President Richard Nixon, who resigned following the Watergate scandal. Ford was the 38th president and the only one to be unelected. Ford had recently suffered bouts of pneumonia and had had heart surgery, including a recent angioplasty. More coverage at BBC and CNN."

2002-01-21 08:08:02 Biometric Driver's Licenses: National ID Pilot? (yro,privacy)

There have been some concrete developments on the idea of driver's licenses as (inter)national IDs. West Virginia is piloting facial recognition systems for driver's licenses in a contract with Digimarc and Visionics. Digimarc supplies driver's license systems to 37 states. Meanwhile, the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators is lobbying Congress for federal legislation requiring unique identifiers be embedded in all US driver's licenses, and cross-reference multiple state, federal and law enforcement databases. The organization -- which represents DMV admins from across the USA and Canada -- said it forsees a common unique ID used in both the US and Canada.
