7:00 – 4:00 ASRC

  • Started on the slides
  • Installing the Ubuntu extension on my personal laptop as per this:
  • Fixing the .arff string variable save for CorpusManager – fixed. The trimmed matrices just didn’t have the string Maps

  • Need to doodle a slot for the week of the 17th.
  • Got my antarctica books. Need to do a bit of reading.
  • Walked David through my thoughts. That helped a lot!

Phil 10.7.16

  • Submit aperworrk for ACM and ICA reimbursement
  • Working on the research browser
  • Machine learning meeting
    • Confusion about the difference between our googlehacking and ML
  • Broke the arff string value part. It’s working on xlsx, so I need to chase that down.

Phil 10.6.16

Phil 10.5.16

9:00 – 5:00 ASRC

Phil 10.4.16

  • Link to Barbara
  • Proofreading and bibliography
  • Still need to number figures and tables, print to PDF and distribute.

Phil 10.3.16

7:00 – 5:00 ASRC

  • Reworking browser mockup. Rather than using the ‘Trustworthy’ ranking, I thought I’d go more functional and exploration-supporting. Clicking on the Antibubble annotation for a story would show the context for the ‘trustworthy’ context. Clicking on the Bubble annotation would show the ech0-chamber context. The criteria for ranking documents could be selected by combobox.


  • Implications for design section
  • Aaron’s presentation
    • Managing Ambiguity in Legal Requirements
    • Ambiguity as a tool of understanding issues?
    • In law, building in ambiguity to extend law lifetime. But shut specific loopholes
    • Sounds a lot like compiler design
    • Code clusters for paragraphs
  • 4:00 Meeting with Wayne
    • Inline citations
    • APA format
    • Print to pdf and offer hard copy in the distribution.
