    Signs of general economic recovery and renewed IT sector growth are dampened for IT workers globally by improved productivity and locally by a global labor market. Since 1999 - when US business magazine cover stories described IT positions going unfilled and extensive congressional lobbying to increase quotas for overseas workers to fill them - the US IT job market has changed drastically, losing ...

    The Web has become the preferred medium for many database applications, such as e-commerce and digital libraries. These applications store information in huge databases that users access, query, and update through the Web. Database-driven Web sites have their own interfaces and access forms for creating HTML pages on the fly. Web database technologies define the way that these forms can connect to...

    Circuit engineering is a discipline that has done the job right, and genetic engineering is at least trying to do the job right. Both have managed vast complexity and achieved a high level of public trust. Software engineering could take lessons from either discipline, and this is not simply an academician's lament; the cost of software is enormous and risk to public safety daunting. Many of us re...

    The US has reduced the number of people admissible under its controversial H-1B visa program, which lets skilled foreign workers - many in the computer technology field - take jobs in the country for up to six years. The H-1B visa program has sparked ongoing controversy. Many technology companies say they hire US workers when possible but need higher visa caps to fill important positions requiring...

    Because science has advanced so rapidly over the past century or so, we assume that it can and will continue to do so, possibly forever. But science itself tells us that there are limits to our knowledge. The book "End of Science" argued that science - especially pure science, the grand request to understand the universe and our place in it - might be entering an era of diminishing returns. We wou...

    Peer-to-peer technology is being used more frequently for corporate activities. Many large vendors are beginning to integrate P2P applications with the core business programs they sell, such as their customer-relationship management systems. If vendors agree on a solid, standards-based, widely supported infrastructure that provides interoperability and platform independence, corporate P2P adoption... View full abstract»

    Holograms can reconstruct complete optical wavefronts, capturing images that have a three-dimensional appearance and can be observed from different perspectives. Museum exhibits often use optical hologram technology because it permits presentation of 3D objects with almost no loss in visual quality. Optical holograms are static, however, and lack interactivity. Combining 3D computer graphical elem... View full abstract»
