Speaking Sessions

  • [futureLiving] Apply software development principles to dwelling environments and optimize/re-invent live-work processes

    9:45 AM Saturday   Room: 4310
    Imagine your very own multi-purpose dwelling environment that adjusts to your needs throughout the day and over the course of your life, inspires you to fully unfold your potential and effectively works to maximize your well-being/performance. The principles that are essential for software development (MVC, Service-based architecture, etc), when applied to urban design and architecture, can provide unparalleled flexibility, efficiency and ecological benefits for the places where we live, work and play. Learn about the effort to create, build and own the open-source modular, extendable, mobile, service-based architecture and homes, that are high-tech, eco-friendly, affordable and unique. We would also like to become a foundation for joining the efforts of Tempohousing,, Quantified Self and others that work on future living technologies. We welcome all visionaries, doers and innovators from a variety of future-living initiatives and industries (architecture, home automation, QS/preventive healthcare, design, etc) - to attend the presentation and learn about this exciting initiative and join our community.

  • [web goal management] Manage your life: Web-based integrated goal, time, project, knowledge, health management - new concepts, approaches and tools

    1:15 PM Sunday   Room: 4203
    This session is an attempt to not only offer some fresh approaches to time/goal management, but also to engage in a discussion about new ideas and look at some thought-provoking concepts for total life management, that are made possible by a holistic approach to web-based application development nowadays. We'll start by reviewing some classic approaches and theories for time and project management (GTD, books "The Time Trap", "One minute manager", etc), discussing goal-based time/project management and speculating about the future trends. Then we'll take a look at some popular web-based applications for time/goal/project management and compare them to several integrated, "all-in-one" solutions. At the end, we'll engage in a lively discussion on what the future for these approaches and applications will be and how to best use them. Some of the ideas/points will be quite controversial with far-reaching implications (security, privacy, etc), so be sure to arm yourself with some real-life questions, examples and concerns. Hopefully, we'll have an intellectually-stimulating discussion where everybody will learn something new and get a fresh perspective on how to make the most of their potential.
