  • Here’s Where Donald Trump Gets His News

    • It would be interesting to do a crawl on those sources (weighted by the amount visited?) and do a word model analysis.
  • Continuing with Sociophysics
  • Fixed the header problem in Labled2dMatrix.fromExcelSheet()
  • Here’s the term extraction using NMF with a k = 2:
    chapter-3-the-spouter-inn, chapter-1-loomings, chapter-2-the-carpet-bag
    harpooneer
    water
    landlord
    about
    light
    stand
    thousand
    other
    night
    passenger
    
    chapter-2-the-carpet-bag, chapter-4-the-counterpane, chapter-1-loomings
    queequeg
    landlord
    harpooneer
    sailor
    money
    nantucket
    passenger
    sight
    where
    dream
  • And here are the document clusters. Just looking at this, I see that each term-triple (the top three from the above list) could easily cluster into three groups each:
    queequeg-landlord-harpooneer
    chapter-2-the-carpet-bag 4.158255493
    chapter-4-the-counterpane 2.889135473
    chapter-1-loomings 2.370002854
    chapter-3-the-spouter-inn 0.651989511
    
    harpooneer-water-landlord
    chapter-3-the-spouter-inn 7.111998945
    chapter-1-loomings 1.72918472
    chapter-2-the-carpet-bag 1.157125575
    chapter-4-the-counterpane 0.000284084
