• Raspberry Pi web server set-up with Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP
  • For this presentation I demonstrated how to set-up Linux on a Raspberry Pi. Following the set-up, I walked through the steps of installing Apache, MySQL, and PHP . This turns the Raspberry Pi into a very cheap ($35) web server that you can set-up in your living room to host local pages or, with some router configuration, broadcast your page out to the world.

  • ‘The Open Crowd Project’ Application Design Process
  • The Open Crowd Project is the creation of a professor of arts at IUS. In this project he scans individuals with a Microsoft Kinect, then 3D prints them to create an “open crowd” of people. The problem he was having with the project is that the scans were missing some key facial features that could really identify the person. I was tasked with coming up with a design for the user interface of a new program that was created with KinectFusion, which enhanced the scan quality.


  • iOS User Interface Guidelines & Transitions
  • A presentation was prepared to deliver to senior level HCI students by using Apples iOS User Interface Guidelines. Some of the many features discussed in this presentation included: bars, buttons, icons, content views, alerts, and controls. I also talked about the web interface and how a few different sites functioned differently on an iOS mobile device.

  • 3D Printing Walk-through
  • I demonstrated how to set-up a 3D printer for the newly formed IUS Hackerspace group. I walked through how to load a file into the software, align it for printing, pre-heating the platform, and starting the print process.

  • FAMILIES – dealing with family members during Code 4′s
  • This was a presentation that was delivered to many managers, directors, and vice presidents at Clark Memorial Hospital. It focused on the fact that during code 4′s, the patients family members essentially get pushed out of the room and are left by themselves, not knowing what is going on during the attempted resuscitation. The idea was to develop a team that would be responsible for taking care of any family members that may be present with the patient.


  • Social Factors
  • I gave a presentation on social factors and the influence it has had on technology. I began with the Agricultural Society and progressed through time to the Social Age. I focused on all of the technology that was created in each age. I then focused on the various social factors and how they influence us.

  • Data Visualization
  • This was a short talk on how to take data and put it into the web application, Many Eyes. Many Eyes is a web application that can take data and represent it in many different forms. This allows for easy visualization of the data.

  • E-Commerce Privacy and Security Concerns
  • During this presentation I delivered research results that I discovered. The research was based on ordinary peoples perception of security and privacy while shopping online. The terms and conditions of a couple of large online retailers were looked at, from the information found a survey was created and distributed. The paper that accompanied the research and presentation can be found here: E-Commerce Privacy and Security Concerns With a Primary Focus on eBay and Amazon.


  • The Future of the Internet
  • This presentation discussed the changes going on with the transition from IPv4 to IPv6, HTML to HTML5, Web 2.0 to Web 3.0, and Semantics.

  • Crowd-Sourcing
  • This presentation was used to introduce introductory level informatics students to crowd-sourcing. Amazon’s mechanical turk website was used to demonstrate how crowd-sourcing works and how it can be helpful.
