Date, Time and Location

Friday, 1 December 2006
30 Minutes
E1 4


This is the seventh talk in the AG1 series:

Myspace, Flickr, Netflix and all that - Hot sites and trends on the web (seminar wiki)

The (short!) presentations will be very informal and there's lots of interaction with the audience. Rotunda 3rd floor.


singingfish (Ingmar) - Downloading mp3s for free on the web is illegal? Such sites get shut down immediately? Well, if you're looking for fairly mainstream stuff, try this site. Operated by AOL!

eyeos (Evangelia) - This site gives you a 'virtual os'. Think of some simple operating system running on a remote server ... and you can access it with a web interface! Access your documents from anywhere and with any machine.

virtual earth 3d (Christoph) - Microsoft scores against Google in the earth browser war: textured 3D models provide an almost photo-realistic impression of entire cities, a single interface unifies route planning with 3D exploration, and virtual poster walls are a new advertising concept for earth browsers.

Presentations will rougly 10 minutes each.


Send an email to iweber@.. if you would like to present something in
this informal setting. If you don't have any idea yourself, you'll be provided with a choice of websites to present.
