Research for the future
In 2011, Fashionoffice was 'restless' in searching and publishing stylish and edgy news for fashion, art and culture interested users; we even have researched non-stop on storage and content delivery in computer-networks. At this time, Fashionoffice is on the waiting list for an EC Research Project to continue the work within an international science group organised by the European Commission.
During more than 5 years, computer science has joined forces with other academic disciplines and interdisciplinary approaches are today common on top-universities. Fashionoffice has delivered in the last months the results of our computer-network studies to internationally working project groups of computer/media/law scientists with focus on society/democracy/media at the leading universities in Asia, United States, and Europe.
A practical insight into the current situation, which is not new or uncommon for academics - even if not desired, are described in the Fashionoffice press release about 'Cloud Computing' mediainfo6-2011.htm and about the 'Construction of Reality' on mediainfo2-2011.htm.
I hope that the results about storage and content delivery which had been collected during the last 5 1/2 years on the websites of Fashionoffice have positive effects on the future of our computer-networked society.
I wish a reflective Advent season 2011.
