Re: 11.21 Status of Work-in-Progress

I'm currently working my way through Kant and Dewey's aesthetics to give myself a grounded space for discussion of the work of visual complexity and Ward Shelley. http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/kant-aesthetics/ http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/dewey-aesthetics/ http://www.amazon.com/Art-as-Exper...

It does an initial search for books on with the term coffee in the title and stacks a second search for politic in the title on top of that. The grey ba...

Re: 10.10 Cultural Analytics Review + Sketch

Manovich's ideas are certainly interesting, though I'm not quite sure I entirely understand them. In some sense there's an argument for the expansion of a software type that is culturally aware by tracing many types of data, but to me this seems like artifice. And given that upon the construction of...

Re: 2. Wk 3. Data Mining/MySQL Ideas + Google Reviews here

This is just a question, but can anyone explain in a little detail as to how to export the data you're looking at in the SQL program (HeidiSQL in my case) so that Google can use it to make correlations? Right now I have exported the data to multiple file types (XML, CSV, SQL, HTML, LaTex) and while ...

Re: 1. Respond To Kosara Schneiderman Fry Here

Didactic Data - Stephen Keating I think that one of the first questions everyone asks when examining a piece of data is "how is it useful?"
