Mashlight: a Lightweight Mashup Framework for Everyone

Sam Guinea, Luciano Baresi, Matteo Albinola and Matteo Carcano present the Mashlight framework at MEM 2009. Mashlight is a lightweight mashup framework which aims at a software solution providing: flexibility (support for data, logic and presentation), usability (come to an abstraction level that everyone can understand) and fast prototyping. Their starting point is that mashups are created through the process-like disposition of logic activities. Sam starts by presenting the model they use for their mashup framework. The notion of Mashlight Block is the first being introduced. It represents a functional unit with clear goal, e.g. a map block, a movie...

Mashups encapsulate this idea of making integration of service easier so that even normal people (i.e. not complete-geeks) can create small ad-hoc apps on top of services on the Web. We’d like to apply this approach to things so that you can for example, make your alarm clock talk to your toaster (e.g. I’m waking up, prepare my toats) without going into FPGA or PLC programming! Thus, we sent a paper at this (according to colleagues) state-of-the-art workshop on mashups. The paper got accepted and here am I, at WWW 2009 and live blogging the workshop for our beloved visitors...

David E. Culler, UC Berkley on RESTful Sensor Networks

Today, Vlad and I had the chance of taking part to a talk from David E. Culler from UC Berkley, one of the main TinyOS contributors. While Vlad is going to summarize the talk a bit later here, I’d like to talk a bit more about the end of the talk. One one of his slides he had a figure of what he would like to see implemented on WSNs at the node level. Besides a comprehensive IPV6lowpan (aka 6lowpan) stack he mentioned an implementation of HTTP and, moreover, a web server! The next slide was about sense making and...
