June 2012 Archives
I came across a great slideshare presentation from RCOMM 2011 about how to use Rapidminer for sentiment mining. While I wasn't there for this presentation, you can get a good idea how Bruno Ohana and Brendan Tierney applied the various operators to the IMBD movie database.
I've transferred the blog to moveable type, hopefully minimizing the hacker exploits. Wordpress, while an easy to use blogging platform, is riddled with security holes. Likewise, the same can be said with all of them (Expression Engine, Text Pattern), but I hope this nuttiness is behind me now.
What's left to do now is to clean out old useless posts, fix the links on the Rapidminer Tutorials, and take the blog into a new direction.
Thanks for your patience, things will hopefully get active again here.
These are my links for June 6th:
- You Are Not a Curator, You Are Actually Just a Filthy Blogger | The Awl - As a former actual curator, of like, actual art and whatnot, I think I'm fairly well positioned to say that you folks with your blog and your Tumblr and your whatever are not actually engaged in a practice of curation. Call it what you like: aggregating? Blogging? Choosing? Copyright infringing sometimes? But it's not actually curation, or anything like it. - VIA MAOXIAN. TRUE, YOU MUST CREATE TO CURATE - NOT REPACKAGE AND CLAIM IT AS CREATION.
