Comcast Expands School-Focused IPTV Trial | Multichannel.com | Security begins in the mind. | Scoop.it
Bridgewater College, a school founded in 1880, is about to get access to something new – an emerging multiscreen video service from Comcast that is delivered entirely over IP. Bridgewater College, a Virginia school with about 1,800 students that’s located about two hours from Washington, D.C., has signed on for Xfinity On Campus, a new IP-delivered subscription video service that supports live TV streaming and on-demand content to select iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch models (the AirPlay function is disabled), and browsers running on PCs and Macs. Comcast is working on an Xfinity On Campus app for Android-powered devices. Bridgewater College joins a small batch of east coast colleges that are testing or preparing to test the Xfinity On Campus, which is still technically in the trial stage. Other schools that are on board include Lasell College, the University of New Hampshire, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Drexel University, and Emerson College. Click headline to read more--

What's next? 3D printed buildings?! Amazing to see how far this technology has come in such a short space of time.

Farid Mheir's curator insight, September 28, 2014 7:27 PM

This is much inline with my readings on the zero marginal cost society. Being able to print your own car may not be practical of cost effective today but once it is and car 3D models are available free or low charge on the web, where will the car industry go? I understand why Tesla is building huge battery manufacturing plant as they may have seen that providing key components may be the future of the car industry?

Library Technology Fosters Digital Inclusion | USTelecom.org | Security begins in the mind. | Scoop.it
While broadband access is readily available in most areas of the country, studies have shown that a key obstacle to adoption in the U.S. is a lack of digital readiness. According to an Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) study, which USTelecom previously profiled, 70 million Americans say they are not “digitally ready” to use broadband and its myriad applications. This is nearly twice the number of people (36 million) who lack online access. However, in the recently published Digital Inclusion Survey, developed by the American Library Association, the University of Maryland and the International City/County Management Association, data reveal how the availability of technology and services at public libraries is helping bridge this divide. Among the survey's key findings: Click headline to read more--
