Computer Science Grad Student in Computerworld's "10 Best IT Videos of 2009"

Computerworld: The 10 best IT videos of '09

"The cameras were rolling in tech land, and the results are all over YouTube," wrote Computerworld. And one of the YouTube gems recognized featured Cynthia Taylor, a computer science PhD student at the Jacobs School. In the short, impromptu video, Taylor explained how to improve the Starbucks experience with thin-client computing. I shot the video at the most recent research review for the UCSD Center for Wireless Communications. Computerworld's Patrick Thibodeau named the video as one of "The 10 best IT videos of '09"

The category:

Best Video for Improving the Starbucks Experience.

Imagine if a Starbucks latte also came with server-based resources available to your iPhone. The presenter, a Ph.D. student at Jacobs School of Engineering at the University of California-San Diego, makes the case for "Exploiting Proximal Resources for Better User-Perceived Performance."
