We are doing a project related to energy use and are looking for people who
live in Boulder, CO and are part of the Smart Grid City energy program

Facial recognition authentication

There's at least one laptop floating around there that replaces the need for
a login password with the image of your face. Do you have any experience
with such a thing? How'd it work out for you?
I am so tired of typing passwords.

GUI for interactive whiteboards

Would anyone be able to point me to any white papers or empirical data on
interactive whiteboard application interfaces? projection based. SMART board,
Pegasus, Mimio Board?

I'm working on Classroom presentation application that ideally can be used on
"various whiteboards" with it's own native tools rather than utilizing each
boards proprietary toolset.

Looking for any literature, information on teacher/board interaction...
toolbar orientation, projection resolution, etc...

Lots to think about and evaluate. I know the UK is ahead of us in the states
with board adoption...
