The annual Clough Commons Art Crawl serves as a unique opportunity for Georgia Tech students to close their books, catch their breath, and enjoy the therapeutic effects of art. The blank walls of the Clough Commons will once again be transformed into a make-shift gallery, all centered around the artistic work of Georgia Tech students.
Modern social media do a remarkable job of keeping friends and families connected‚ often across the globe. Yet, these same systems also overlook the communities and neighborhoods where we live our daily lives. In this paper, we present BlockParty, a platform for building hyper-local social computing applications aimed at neighborhoods. A key feature of our platform is that it runs on top of residential wireless routers via an underlying mesh network. Using BlockParty, people can socialize with their neighbors and share resources, without their data ever leaving their local community.
The internet, mobile, and social media technologies have been successful in connecting large segments of the world's population, generating wide access to global networks of information. There are several clusters of unconnected/under-connected populations across the world, however, who do not have access due to financial, social, or political limitations.
