Note to self: Neatreceipts method


Got to Receipts tab.
Select receipt folder (by year & currency).

Sort by Vendor.
Check that all categories for each Vendor have only minimal expected variance. (e.g. sometimes drugstore, sometimes groceries...)

Note if any vendors (particularly restaurants) have mutiple receipts with amounts varying by less than 20% on a given day (where one was a cash receipt and the other was a credit card).
Copy the tax/pst/gst ammounts from cash to credit receipt.
Select cash receipt (holding down CTRL) and select credit receipt (so black arrow is pointing to credit receipt).

plain old google

| | | |

This visualiz* "document cluster*" Google search produced 28 hits.

This may be my best google search yet.

I thought about 12 were worth exploring further, and about 8 resulted in downloaded documents/articles.

'too late,' he cries, anxious to end the churning. 'Not another search!'

I just want to be done. That means I should stop; but I could not help but feel that since the Visualization and Computer Graphics people aren't really talking about visualizing 'document clusters,' 'textual data clusters,' or 'text content clustering,' I decided that I might just be missing the boat.

What about "visualiz* data-mining"?

the bounded rationality and overall muddle of keyword search

| | | | | | |

Circa 2003, while studying policy 'sciences' as a new grad student, I was introduced to the concept of the policy 'muddle'.

Rather than fostering expectations of rational and scientific decision and policy-making, the author and professor were introducing us to the pragmatic, glaring disjuncture between the idealized 'policy process' and the real-world situations that range from successes, through 'muddles', to 'disasters, failures, etc.'

svelte new zotero kicks rumply old RefMan's butt

| | | | | | |


I just remembered I have Zotero installed.

I had deactivated it because it was interfering with my RIS harvesting into Reference Manager 11 (RefMan).

I would love to compare the efficacy of retrofitting crappy Google Scholar RIS using cut-and-paste methodology from more fully indexed sources; vs. ignoring the RIS import altogether and getting Zotero to scrape it all for you.

I cant do that if Zotero gobbles up all my RIS files...So i figgured out how to make Zotero leave them alone.

reading for gist

| | | | | | |

Got to get going on my IAT 814 and 802 term projects.

Started with the idea of reading for gist, a model principally from

O'Halloran, K. (2003). Critical discourse analysis and language cognition. Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press.

Wanted to get a deeper view on the concept, so did a google scholar search using combined SFUBC proxies and VPNs.

Found about 32 articles with the following strategy:

"reading for gist" -esl -teacher

Downloaded (and meta-scraped) 11...but only about 7 from this search.

visualizing natural language - 3D conversational agents

| | | | | | | | | | | | |

Had a great after-class discussion with Steve. He gave us the lowdown on some of SIAT organizational history. Highlights included the hiring 'waves,' institutional memory, and the politics of place in the Academy. This last is very important to me personally; since those politics impinge on the domain of my studies. Given that CS and EnG are withdrawing from FAS, that leaves Contemporary Arts, Communications and us. The name of the new faculty is the issue under contention. I don't want to end up in faculty of Contemporary Arts! Euch.

tex.tuals process

| | | | | | | | |

As I read through a text (I've remarked on the paper-to-digital conversion process elsewhere) I want to be able to highlight and capture whole swaths of text.

It is critically important to repurposing my captured snippets (bits, fits, blobs, fragments, portions) that I am able to recontextualize them easily.

How can this recontextualization happen?

First; the bibliographic information must be embedded in each bit.

Also, its relative location in the linear flow of the text must be recorded, so as to be able to quickly pull up various degrees of context around the bit.
