The unfinished history of usage rights for spectrum

Martin Cave, William Webb
2012 Telecommunications Policy  
This led to a number of different suggestions as to better ways that the rights of licence holders could be defined, including novel approaches in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.  ...  For example, the UK has pioneered spectrum usage rights (SURs).  ...  In some cases, different technologies do not share well -for example one might occupy a channel for long time periods denying access to another.  ...

Can Smartphone Co-locations Detect Friendship? It Depends How You Model It [article]

Momin M. Malik, Afsaneh Doryab, Michael Merrill, Jürgen Pfeffer, Anind K. Dey
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We present a study to detect friendship, its strength, and its change from smartphone location data collectedamong members of a fraternity.  ...  We extract a rich set of co-location features and build classifiers that detectfriendships and close friendship at 30% above a random baseline.  ...  The similarity metric used is the Jaccard index, a common method for comparing networks (as it looks only at ties shared across the two networks, not shared non-ties), potentially of overlapping but unequal  ...

Personal artifact ecologies in the context of mobile knowledge workers

Mohammad Hossein Jarrahi, Sarah Beth Nelson, Leslie Thomson
2017 Computers in Human Behavior  
This paper extends the discourse on artifact ecologies by examining how such ecologies are constructed in the context of mobile knowledge work, as sociotechnical arrangements that consist of technological  ...  With the proliferation of information and communication technologies (ICTs), studying artifact ecologies is essential in order to design new technologies with effective affordances.  ...  P24 (an attorney at a small law firm) also connects to WiFi in multiple ways, describing them in his diary entries, "Public WiFi keeps dropping. Supplementing public WiFi with personal WiFi."  ...

An exploration of user-generated wireless broadband infrastructures in digital cities

Catherine A. Middleton, Amelia Bryne
2011 Telematics and informatics  
Infrastructure for Digital Cities "Digital city" projects are the most recent in a long line of efforts to use communication technologies to connect citizens to each other, to local governments, and to  ...  provide an opportunity for citizens to share their own wireless broadband connections.  ...  Once a FON hotspot is located on the 4. FON Case Study map, the user goes to the hotspot with a Wi-Fi device, logs in (or signs up for the service), and then has access to the Internet.  ...

Resource sharing begins at home: opportunities for library partnerships on a university campus

Robert A. Seal
2016 Interlending & document supply  
As we shall see, college and university libraries have done so in a variety of ways, with significant achievement in many instances.  ...  Typical discussions of academic library resource sharing focus on activities between and among institutions: interlibrary loan, reciprocal borrowing, document delivery, group acquisitions, etc.  ...  In each case, they provide a natural partnership for libraries since all share the same goal of helping students succeed in their chosen field by improving writing and research skills.  ...
