Weapons of Mass Destruction: Biological Weapons
2/10/2007; 10:30am to 11:30am
Speaker: Phil Hanna, Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
The impact of infectious agents has influenced societies and affected the lives of every generation for all of human history. That some of these microbial agents now might be
used, deliberately, as weapons of terror shocks sensibilities and challenges researchers and governments to develop new policies and build practical countermeasures. We will cover the nature and medicine of bioterror agents, their history and social impact and discuss some current thinking surrounding our desires to live safely in a world where germs might be used as weapons.

Friday Afternoon Tea: "Prospero" Project
DATE February 2
TIME 4:30 – 5:30
Design Lab 1
Friday Afternoon Tea is a weekly gathering of students, faculty and staff sponsored by the Digital Media Commons and GROCS to stimulate creative and spontaneous conversations about the role of rich media tools in culture and academia.
"Prospero: A 'Visual Commons' Framework for Community-Aware Public Displays" will enable public displays to reflect evolving public participation. Displays located in public spaces and accessible to a public constitute an increasingly important element of the public sphere. Public displays that are controlled by users' expressed needs and preferences may be part of an ongoing, democratic reclaiming, by citizens, of control over an increasing number of aspects of the public sphere in general.

The Prospero project is one of five GROCS 2007 projects. Team members are Ben Congleton, Paul Hartzog, Sayan Bhattacharyya, Charles Kaylor.
