Seven ideas discussed so far...

1. Minecraft usage a la the Lakecraft project: http://lakecraft.net/

2. Cloud-based Gaming: Create a proof of concept video game design that requires extremely low latency between the client and server or a GPU intensive client; cloud-based supercomputing, etc

3. SCALE - Safe Community Alert Network iteration for Kansas City - http://smartamerica.org/teams/scale-safe-community-alert-network-a-k-a-public-safety-for-smart-communities/

4. Digital Archive - build a community history platform of multimedia content

5. Virtual Literacy Mentor - telepresence based literacy tool for parents/tutors to read to kids

    Regarding #7, CERN@Home, I am presently working on a distributed supercomputing project that uses the popular BOINC platform. I am working in computational materials science in collaboration with Yale University. Coincidentally, I am also going to CERN this summer as a part of the Summer Scholars program they offer for undergraduates to perform research at their facility in Geneva. I am strongly interested in talking with anyone who has expertise with distributed computing and/or interest in this project.
