personal stories

Note: iCompute = is a both an internal project name and a public name for talking about issues around the image of computing in a way that involves a personal perspective.

Vision of the Project "iCompute":

By making it personal, we raise the social status of computing as a discipline and profession. People who perceive computing as valuable to society will now see computing as empowering in their lives. As people take back control of technology creation and usage, we can unleash it in ethical and beneficial ways to our advantage, discovering new ways of improving our education, our work, our lives and ourselves.

One caveat:  It’s not about the future of technology.   Instead, it’s about the impact of technology on society and culture in the future.  That’s what really drives the future anyway.  It’s how people use the stuff they have in new ways, and how they perceive value from it.  


There are a lot of great computing topics will inspire interest:

Don't worry about the details for now. We'll follow up with you to find out if we can use the story.  For now, send any and all ideas! Thanks!


Would you participate in a contest for the best story?  Do you think that would motivate others in the computing community to join in and share their stories?
