Name: James Garza

From: Texas

Bio: College Student

Area of Expertise: Advocate/Voice of the People

Topic: Communication

Headline: Creating Storage Spaces

Nutshell: Online Memory Banks make personal data storage obselete.

Vision: Instead of having personal computer harddrives that store documents, all documents, files, and desktop items will be stored on giant supercomputers that can be accessed from any computer. So whether at home, work, or traveling to a foreign land you can still have all the amenities of your computer at home. It could be free like a email accounts with limits- but the limit could be like gmail with 1GB of storage per account.
