Poster session

This is the blog about the poster session on Wednesday morning.

I saw a few posters today, most of them of just moderate interest. The most interesting thing was two projects from NCSU that leveraged MIT's SIMILE project. I'll upload photos of the poster later. UCF had an interesting poster on uses of wikis. And I got trapped by a sales guy from Logical Choice Technologies; they have a complicated, expensive clicker system that I'm not sure I see the benefit of.


Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
