                          Exploring Self-Sovereign Identity in India

                          I spent almost two weeks talking with people about self-sovereign identity in Switzerland and India. I'm more excouraged than ever that self-sovereign identity holds the key to real change in how we live our digital lives with security, privacy, and dignity.

                          Student Profiles: A Proof of Concept

                          This post describes a proof of concept for a personal learning system called a student profile. The student profile gives students control over their personal information, including learning activities, and demonstrates how other parties can trust learning records kept in the student profile and shared by the student. This is a critical factor in creating personal learning environments that support life-long learning and give the university greater flexibility in system architecture.

                          Using Picos for BYU's Priority Registration

                          Picos are a natural way to build microservices. This post presents the results of an experiment we ran to see how the new Pico Engine performs when placed under surge loading that simulates BYU's priority registration.

                          Building a Virtual University

                          With the proper architecture, we can create student learning systems that support virtual universities that offer programs made up from courses of study at various institutions. This article describes a modular approach to designing university systems that allows for a virtual university while also providing significant benefits to students.

                          Building a Personal API

                          The BYU University API committee has been looking for a good project to jumpstart our efforts in personal APIs. The BYU Domains project is not only providing the means to host the personal API, but the initial project as well.

                          Our goal at BYU is to teach students to be life-long learners. We believe that giving students autonomy and control is the surest way to achieve that goal.

                          Aspen Grove Winter Workshop

                          The Aspen Grove Winter Workshop (AGWW) will be held February 17 and 18, 2016 at BYU's Aspen Grove Conference Center. The workshop is hosted by BYU's Office of the CIO. You can get tickets on Eventbrite. The workshop is open to anyone. AGWW is an unconference that is focused on University APIs, Domain of One's Own, Personal Learning Systems, Learning Management Systems, Student Information Systems, and other strategic uses of IT in the university environment. This isn't just a technical conference. There will be plenty of discussions about the impact of these technologies on learning and the modern university.

                          Ambience and Personal Learning Systems

                          We learn everywhere. A personal learning system doesn't need to be a place. Rather we can envision students using their personal learning system as they go about various learning activities and seeing the results in all the old familiar places.

                          Personal Learning Systems and Life-Long Learning

                          This post is about personal learning systems, the student's side of the LMS. Not only would a personal learning system provide a better experience, but also give students a tool for life-long learning.

                          The Core of Your API

                          A university is a complex place with lots of constituencies. What does it mean to design a University API given the different focus that each constituency has?

                          Matthias Felleisen at BYU CS Colloquium: Adding Types to Untyped Languages

                          Mattahias Felleisen from Northeastern University will be delivering the CS Colloquium at BYU on Thursday Nov 4 at 11am. Here's the abstract of the talk: Over the last 15 years, we have experienced a programming language renaissance. Numerous scripting languages have become widely used in industrial and open-source projects. They have supplemented the existing mainstream languages---C++ and Java---and, in contexts such as systems administration and web programming, they have started to play a dominant role. While each scripting language comes with its own philosophy, their designers share an antipathy to types. As a result, these languages come without a

                          CIO Blogging: Kelly Flanagan

                          Image by minifig via Flickr Kelly Flanagan is a good friend, a collegue, and the CIO of BYU. Years of seeing all the trouble I get into with my blog were not enough to disuade Kelly from starting one of his own. Kelly calls his blog Technology: Rantings, Ramblings and Reviews. Kelly is a CIO who gets his hands dirty--configuring systems, transfering video, building things--and is also curious. Those combined in his blog to create articles that are much more interesting that the typical "enterprise computing" discussion you get from many CIO bloggers.

                          iPhones On Campus

                          Abilene Christian University has a program to give all students an iPhone. They've also got a video that shows how the iPhone might be used on campus (the video is conceptual, not factual). I found some of the ideas to be pretty interesting, but wonder how much IT support would be needed to pull them off. For example, in one sequence the students type things into an application running on the iPhone and a tag cloud is built on the projected screen in real time. Slick. The current standard in teaching IT support is Blackboard and anyone who watches

                          Using Amazon S3 with Google Earth

                          One of my Masters students, Sam Curren, posted a great explanation of how he's using Amazon's S3 service with Google maps to make network links just as fast as the layers inside Google Earth. He's the creator of ActiveTrails.com, a site that let's you upload GPS data of your hikes to create trail maps on Google Earth, so he's got some practical experience in this area.

                          Student Entrepreneur of the Year Competition

                          The BYU Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization (CEO) is sponsoring their annual Student Entrepreneur of the Year Competition. Computer Science students at BYU have done very well in this competition in the past. A total of $31,000 in prize money is awarded, with $12,500 going to first place. If you're a student with an idea for a business and are serious about getting off the ground, this is a good way to focus your efforts, get some great feedback, and, if you're good, get a little funding for your idea to boot.

                          CS Department RSS

                          The BYU CS Department has added RSS feeds to it's Web site. Now, if I could convince the CS department to not send them to the faculty mailing list, I'd be set. Otherwise, I just see them in RSS after I've deleted them from my mailbox. A good first step though...

                          Peter Norvig at BYU

                          With the reams of stuff I spewing out at ETech, there's a real danger this will get lost in the middle, but I persist. Peter Novig, Director of Search Quality at Google will be speaking at this week's CS Dept. Colloquium. If you're in the area and interested, you ought to try to go. I think it will be very good. I'm genuinely sorry I'm going to be in CA and miss it. Here's Peter's abstract: The system of publishing the written word has made more knowledge available to more people than any other technology. No other system comes

                          BYU RUG Report

                          I wasn't able to go the BYU Ruby User's Group meeting last week, but Lee Jensen went and filed this report: I went to the BYU RUG Meeting last night in Provo. The guest speaker was Eric Hodel part of the Robot Coop makers of the 43(things,people,places) social sites. He explained some of the interesting projects that he's been working on and has done in Ruby. He's currently working on a project called Ruby2c or MetaRuby which seeks to make an parser which will implement a subset of Ruby that can be output to the C language and then

                          James Kennedy on Particle Swarming

                          James Kennedy is social psychologist with the Dept. of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics. He's speaking at today's BYU CS colloquium on "The Essential Particle Swarm." He was introduced as the inventor of particle swarming algorithms. He muses whether he's the inventor or discoverer of the algorithm, given that this is a process inherent in many places in nature. The term discoverer might be more apt. James started his work doing computer simulations of the interactions of individuals and their interactions in social context. Social dynamics are adaptive. Societies adapt to their environment, not just the physical environment, but

                          BYU Ruby User's Group Report

                          I went to the BYU Ruby User's Group meeting tonight. Devlin Daley (one of my grad students) gave a demonstration of Rails by building a movie database application. He did a good job. There were about a dozen people there. Again, I was impressed by the power of convention in contrast to configuration. We don't, in general, do a good enough job of thinking out defaults for our programs so that they work without configuration for what most people want to do.

                          Micropayments for Big Ideas

                          You may have noticed a new banner on the right hand side of my blog. I'm trying an experiment to see if I can use my blog to help support student research at BYU (where I teach). I've never been much for exploiting my blog commercially, but I do think supporting student research is a good cause. I'm appealing mostly to corporations (although individual donations would be more than welcome) who want to support interesting and innovative research in digital identity, Web services, and virtualization.
