    Critical Challenges
    As the amount and variety of content increases, it is becoming more difficult to isolate the critical information from the surrounding "noise"
    Small companies are not embracing technologies that could give them a real competitive advantage
    Boundaries are disappearing between work, play and general living

    California students are not being educated in a culture of innovation and creativity
    The overwhelming rate of change affects everything
    There is a growing need for formal instruction in key new skills, including information literacy, visual literacy, and technological literacy
    Small companies are not embracing technologies that could give them a real competitive advantage
    Boundaries are disappearing between work, play and general living
    IP Laws and practices are irrelevant in today’s world

    Key Trends
    Technology is increasingly a means for empowering employees, a method for communication and socializing, and a ubiquitous, transparent part of their lives

    The ability to produce and publish is growing broader and easier. The opportunity for self-expression expands daily. The trends towards sharing what a person or a team creates is significant. CynthiaScott Jul 9, 2009 A good example of the publish end of this is MeeHive which lets users create hyper-personalized "newspapers" http://meehive.com/ KeeneH Jul 12, 2009
    As the amount and variety of content increases, it is becoming more difficult to filter the noise to find the signal. Specialized tools, filters, allow us to gather and visualize huge amounts of data quickly, but we must make these tools available to students and ensure they can use them. As more semantic applications appear on the scene, we will gain even more tools to help us deal with this trend. [...from the 2009 Horizon Report Short List]Larry Jul 1, 2009 NYTimes essay discusses how friends actually help as filters to all the information noise on the web . http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/04/technology/04essay.html?_r=2&oref=slogin&ref=technology KeeneH Jul 12, 2009

    ...
    medium businesses in California will face
    NOTE: We are most interested in challenges that will impact practices in marketing, collaboration, customer service, and productivity.
    As we enter the digital age, a new system of ethics is called for. Schools have the opportunity to play a key role in the development of new citizenship for physical and virtual communities. Schools should engage in a discussion about identity, privacy, ownership, credibility, and reputation that engages teachers, administrators, parents, and students as a first step down this road. [...from the 2009 Horizon Report K12 Edition Short List]Larry Jul 1, 2009 A discussion of ethics in the digital age can be found here in this UNESCO publication: http://portal.unesco.org/ci/en/ev.php-URL_ID=24229&URL_DO=DO_TOPIC&URL_SECTION=201.html KeeneH Jul 11, 2009

    There is not enough money for support & professional development - It's frustrating that we continue to see a lot of money spent on infrastructure but a continued fight to gain adequate funds to ensure it is used well and that users have good levels of support for uptake
    We need to think and act green: Companies should look for ways of meeting their needs and business interests in a sustainable manner, without damaging resources, creating and using products that can be fully reclaimed or re-used, reducing waste and pollution by changing patterns of production and consumption, developing and using alternative technologies to those proved to be damaging for the environment and health, etc.Green technologies Iolanda Jul 12, 2009

    Research Question Three

    medium businesses in California should begin
    NOTE: Items in this category should also be easily supportable with examples, although some of them may still be only found in research contexts. Nonetheless, some work should be happening that we can point to for those who wish to learn more. Three to five years is not a long time for small to medium businesses to turn their attention to something, thus we should see evidence of pioneer efforts that can be documented. Listing the actual companies or organizations working on the items listed here is very very important, as we often will follow up with them to learn more as we turn to the actual writing.
    3D printing (Rapid Prototyping) -- specialized, small-run manufacturing. There seems to be a lot of potential here for boutique production in fashion, decorative arts, industrial production, and medical manufacturing. CynthiaScott Jul 9, 2009 Zebra Imaging in Austin, Tx is a forefront leader in developing 3D printing and holograms for businesses. Expect to see more of this as the technology gets more affordable and easier to produce. http://www.zebraimaging.com/index.html KeeneH Jul 11, 2009 online 3D printing www.shapeways.com amichaelberman Jul 13, 2009

    Research Question Two

    medium businesses in California be actively
    NOTE: This question pushes the notion of "established" technologies outside of usual business applications, and seeks to uncover things that are well established "in the world", but not yet in small to medium business, especially in California. Answers should be easy to support with actual examples and pointers to things people outside of small to medium businesses are actually doing.
    3D. 3D is becoming more prevalent and popular in the entertainment industry. This will undoubtedly expand. CNN Money covered this trend in 2008. http://money.cnn.com/2008/04/03/technology/cash_3D_boom.fortune/index.htm KeeneH Jul 11, 2009 Google has recently released an open source 3D plug-in for browsers in hopes people will experiment and implement this technology http://tech.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=09/04/21/2127246&from=rss KeeneH Jul 11, 2009

    NOTE: Because this question is about "established" technologies, answers should be easy to support with actual examples and pointers to demonstration projects.
    Cloud Computing. Aspects of computing that used to be considered expensive, like disk storage and computing cycles, are now becoming cheap and ubiquitous. Cloud computing refers to processing and storage that occurs in a shared and networked computing environment, such as Amazon EC2 and S3 or a campus data center. Specialized applications like Flickr live entirely in the cloud; there is no single computer, or even specific group of computers, that can be pointed to as housing Flickr, Google, or YouTube. Three types of services are associated with the cloud: cloud-based applications; the infrastructure on which to build such applications (http://code.google.com/appengine/); and sheer computing resources, like Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/) or the GoGrid (http://www.gogrid.com). [...from the 2009 Horizon Report Short List] Larry Jul 1, 2009 Established Cloud based tools such as Google Docs (http://docs.google.com) and Zoho (http://www.zoho.com) are good examples of how this type of computing is taking off.KeeneH Jul 11, 2009 Good article by Cisco techologist about how the iphone is a good metaphor of how cloud computing is maturing (http://www.rationalsurvivability.com/blog/?p=1088) KeeneH Jul 11, 2009 eyeOS (http://eyeos.org/en/about) is an open source Operating System, where everything (desktop and applications) can be used from everywhere through a web browser. ThinkFree (http://member.thinkfree.com/member/goLandingPage.action) is a Microsoft Office compatible application suite usable online and offline through PC and other Internet connected devices. Iolanda Jul 12, 2009 Cloud computing is the direction that most are headed, yet there seems to be lots of ideas on what it really is; the following provides some interesting perspective as well as a list of the Top 10 companies to watch(http://www.networkworld.com/supp/2009/ndc3/051809-cloud-faq.html)CarolS Jul 12, 2009 Amazon Web Services has an education program, including free accounts for students - amichaelberman Jul 13, 2009
