We need UROP students interested in hacking on "crowd computing" -- web, mobile, and desktop applications that orchestrate small contributions from a large group of people. Current projects include:
*Caesar, a web app that chops programs into little bits for other programmers to review and give feedback about bugs and coding style
*FlightCrew, a mobile app platform that puts a crowd in the passenger seat of a car to help the driver with information needs and managing technology
*Collabode, a web-based, highly-collaborative programming environment that's like Google Docs for Java programming
