"It’s always a good idea to demonstrate to your coworkers that you are capable of withstanding a tremendous amount of pain." – Ron Swanson
Out of the conversation b/w Claire and Brandon - we have to have some structure, even as we are doing the computational linguistics stuff most important - users upload their own texts and supply their own markings - however many (or few) they want. Maybe just a highlighting without a text name. maybe a way to turn off individual categories but also view them in relation to the whole. store individual markings, make a visualization that relates part to whole. both visualizations at the same time somehow.
Gwen and Brandon conversation Gwen suggests getting it going with Mitch as her main goal - actually getting it out there and used. maybe meet with Mitch and see what it is he wants us to do. Really like to make it a lot prettier. design overhaul. what are we going to do about the languages? continue?
Prism Questions What is the audience and who are the users? better for smaller user groups, pedagogical purposes How could we make it more general or more applicable to other disciplines? Suggestions:
- other kinds of texts--audio recordings, video, images
- user-generated tags
- more flexible platform - open-ended crowdsourcing version
- make it time-aware or to track the processes people use when marking something up
Do we want to work on PRISM?
Pros/Cons to starting with an existing project. Will picking up the existing project actually help us create a better product by the end of the year? Will we be able to actually use much of their code even if we do something dramatic like incorporating time-awareness or ability to work with sound/vid files?
But... if we like the idea, and we like our ideas about how to extend it, maybe continuing with the idea is still worth it
Do we have any OTHER ideas?
What is PRISM for?
How might crowdsourcing apply across disciplines?
What would we change about PRISM?
how to manage the chaos?
better for smaller user groups
more flexible platform - open-ended crowd sourcing version.
___Better to think about making the tool more general
make prism time-aware
not just what people say, but their process... how/when do they mark it up?
not just what people think, but why
individual user input vs. aggregate
other kinds of texts (audio recordings, video, images)

A website for my work with a realistic maintenance/update strategy
Start using LaTeX to format my documents. (With LilyPond for music notation?)
Start using vim more consistently.
Develop a vim-like interface for a software instrument.
Make some musical instruments with the MakerBot. Perhaps starting with a set of tuned whistles? Brandon Walsh
Personal website development.
Very interested in the technical aspects - html/css, etc (for now at least. We’ll see after Wayne’s bootcamp).
Learn more about what DH is and how it can be used to help interdisciplinary conversations.
Dance like no one is watching.
