Eager to find out what impact blogging and social media could have on the dissemination of her work, Melissa Terras took all of her academic research, including papers that have been available online for years, to the web and found that her audience responded with a huge leap in interest in her work. In October 2011 I began a project to make all of my 26 articles published in refereed journals available via UCL’s Open Access Repository – “Discovery“. I decided that as well as putting them in the institutional repository, I would write a blog post about each research project, and tweet the papers for download. Would this affect how much my research was read, known, discussed, distributed? I wrote about the stories behind the research papers – the stuff that doesn’t make it into the official writeup.

Revealing Economic Terrorists: a Slumlord Conspiracy "Sunlight is the best disinfectant" - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis A client of ours -- a small, not-for-profit, economic justice organization [EJO] -- used social network analysis [SNA] to assist their city attorney in convicting a group of "slumlords" of various housing violations that the real estate investors had been side-stepping for years.

Create Your Own Solar Powered Mason Jar Nightlight from Junk Bargain solar lights are either: - larger than the 2.25" opening of the Mason jar - smaller than the opening in the Mason Jar Larger: The first style I tried was (on clearance from 4th of July) just a touch larger than the opening. Easy enough to detach the blue top section from it's plastic post (not shown here). Next to make things fit I simply had to cut the sides of the light off using the dremmel and a tin snips. This particular size light worked really well because no rewiring, cutting of the lid or even gluing of the lid was needed. I found these at Menards for $1 ...think I better go back for some more!
How Companies and Services Like Facebook Are Shaped by the Programming Languages They Use When the Japanese computer scientist Yukihiro Matsumoto decided to create Ruby, a programming language that has helped build Twitter, Hulu, and much of the modern Web, he was chasing an idea from a 1966 science fiction novel called Babel-17 by Samuel R. Delany. At the book’s heart is an invented language of the same name that upgrades the minds of all those who speak it. “Babel-17 is such an exact analytical language, it almost assures you technical mastery of any situation you look at,” the protagonist says at one point.

Cars and TVs have software that controls how they work, and global commerce and finance are impossible without software that control the stocks, carry out payments, find the best transport route, etc. Coding (or programming) is the construction of software. Coding involves writing a ‘recipe’, which in Computing is called an algorithm, in a so called programming language that a computer can understand. When the computer runs the code we wrote, it follows the ‘recipe’, step by step.
