      Weinberg, Gil, 1967- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
      (cont.) In order to addressee the latter challenge I have decided to employ the digital network--a promising candidate for bringing a unique added value to the musical experience of collaborative group playing. I have ...
    • Interest networks : understanding the influence of interesting people in an organization 

      Ma, Julia Shuhong (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
      This thesis applies network theory to firms, their employees, and various aspects of the employees to understand diversity within an industry at both the firm-level and employee-level. We hypothesize that the interest ...
    • Internet 0 

      Krikorian, Raffi Chant, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
      The Internet is currently unsuitable for small devices because the assumptions behind its architecture for desktop and server computers do not scale down. Implementations and costs that apply to larger machines have a ...
    • InterTwinkles : online tools for non-hierarchical, consensus-oriented decision making 

      DeTar, Charles (Charles Frederick) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
