Phil 2.11.16

6:00 – 4:00 VTX

  • Continuing Participatory journalism – the (r)evolution that wasn’t. Content and user behavior in Sweden 2007–2013
  • Need to see if I can get this on Monday: Rethinking Journalism: trust and participation in a transformed news landscape. Got the kindle book.
  • Need to add a menubar to the Gui app that has a ‘data’ and ‘queries’ tab. Data runs the data generation code. Queries has a list of questions that clears the output and then sends the results to the text area.
  • Still need to move the db to a server. Just realized that it could be a MySql db on Dreamhost too. Having trouble with that. It might be the eclipse jar? Here’s the hibernate jar location in maven:
  • Gave up on connecting to Dreamhost. I think it’s a permissions thing. Asked Heath to look into creating a stable DB somewhere. He needs to talk to Damien.
  • – direct access to live & structured data from millions of sources.
  • Search by date:
    • Google news search that produces Json for the last 24 hours:
  • Played around with a bunch of queries, but in the end, I figured that it was better to write the whole works out in a .csv file and do pivot tables in Excel.
  • Adding the ability to read a config file to set the search engines, lables, etc for generation.
