San Francisco Web Observatory Workshop

Students, researchers and web scientists came together for a hackathon-sytle meet-up hosted by Mark Musen and the team at Stanford.

Post-grad researchers Ramine Tinati, Chris Phethean and Ian Brown from Southampton introduced the day with presentations of their research interests including:

  • Social Media effectiveness for Charities,
  • Message propgation in Social Networks and
  • Observation – how observatories are different

 

the session progressed into a data hack together kicked off by Vinay Goel from our partners at the Internet Archive to look at ways in which complex data sets can be wrangled, analysed and shared.
