SmartPlanet: Deborah Estrin – How do participatory sensors work?:

This engaged my “cool toys” radar on several levels. This is a social
network for social change and advocacy looking at emerging
technologies specifically. The video is a presentation on the use of
mobile tools such as smart phones for gathering data, especially in
crowdsourcing initiatives, with examples ranging from climate to
health to social and onward. Last but not least, unless I’ve
misunderstood, I believe the podium may be projecting the slides in
real time with the slides changing on the wall behind the speaker and
in front of the speaker, making it easier to videotape the
presentation and capture both together without the problems of later
syncing both parts or dual cameras. Via @Wrenaissance.
