so...i'm doing a paper for my MIS class for extra credit and i need to pick an emerging MIS trend or new technology; then i'll write a 5pg paper and give a 10min presenation. I cant really decide what technology would be cool to give a presentation on...any ideas?

so far the only idea i've come up with was giving something on new game ideas...i dunno
(katamari damacy, lol)

How 'bout medical nano-robots? The kinds they're trying to develop that would be entered into the bloodstream in order to precisely attack certain things like tumors, etc..? I remember reading something about that in a PopSci or SciAmerican magazine in the past year....damn my memory!

Doesn't really fall into "MIS trend" but it is a New Technology.

.Net 2005 has really simplified & unified software development...

Especially Windows Forms, Web Forms, Database Development & Reporting, etc.

Not really new-new, but you could do it on the emergence of SANs and Fibre Channel Protocol versus iSCSI.

I concur. Do it about Bluray, and the reason that was such an advancement in data storage. You can write about the guy that invented the blue laser led that makes it work.

No-one understands what .net is... but what MIS managers do understand is cost savings & data based management. Its up to you to explain how this new technology increases cost savings.

agreed, it is a good topic, i just dont think it is good for this class...it would be something i would be more inclined to talk about in a 3 or 400 lvl class...this is 200, lol
