Offline Micro Digital Library Evaluation and Comparison
By Ian Craig
Abstract: There are many different digital library solutions currently
developed or in the process of development. While this is great news
for students and educators in under-served areas, this ubiquity can
also be a problem. With so many options; how are these institutions
and local people supposed to effectively discern which solution is
"best"? How is the superlative “best” defined in this case? What
criteria should people (with zero to little technical experience) base
their microserver research and judgement on? Even if a substantial
amount of potential microserver clientèle knew (and was able to
execute) an effective research methodology, would a trial-and-error
process involving testing all “viable” solutions be an efficient use
In this presentation Ian Craig (SFSU student and intern at Inveneo),
will discuss different off-the-shelf solutions and how these compare
across the board using multiple criteria.
Raspberry pi wifi dongle ad-hoc testing
Please bring as many wifi clients as possible: smart phones, tablets,
laptops (XOs or others.) The idea is to see how many clients we can
get connected to the Raspberry Pi access point at any one time. We
have half a dozen different usb wifi dongles to evaluate.
Our meetings are held on the second Saturday of every month. Everyone is
welcome to join us for our monthly meeting! We'll be discussing the
latest in OLPC events and give updates on our local (and global)
projects. There will be plenty of XO laptops with the latest builds to
play around with, too.
