Important: Announcement re: mini-WWW2007 during the final exam period class of 5/8/2007

As you know, we will be meeting from 2:40pm--4:30pm on May 8th, Tuesday.

My general idea was to convert that meeting into a discussion-cum-wrap-up of the course.

Given that you are all reading a WWW 2007 paper and writing a review, it occurred to me that the best way to
make this happen is to have each of you make a 5-minute presentation on your paper.

We have a total of 110 minute for the class period. At 5min per slot, the presentations should take about 100min, leaving us
10min of buffer time for any general discussions.

Here is what you need to do:

1. *Pick* the paper you plan to read and review--post the title to the blog as I had asked (9 of you have done it)

2. In addition to the 1 page review you will be submitting as part of the homework 4, you should also make a 4 slide summary of the paper

 Slide 1: What is the problem the paper is atempting. Why is it interesting
 Slide 2: What is the solution the authors propose
 Slide 3: What is your criticism of the solution
 Slide 4: How is this paper related to anything we discussed in the course.
 Slide 5: a Quad-chart version of slides 1-4 (i.e., copy each of the slides and paste it on to 5th slide at 1/4th size)

3. On 8th, be ready to present your slides.
