I am moving

I am relocating to my micro blog at my homepage

Interesting as it has been to write long(ish!) posts on here, my new job does not give me time to do the same anymore. Besides, I have kind of bought into the whole Less is More philosophy.

So cya all at

An Update

I have been guilty of not thinking too much about the repercussions of my initial findings in Wikipedia's network analysis, covered by my doctoral work. This was a natural consequence of a very interesting project called "The Copenhagen Wheel" that I was collaborating on, with the SENSEable City Lab at MIT. However, I believe it is important that I carry forward the train of thought I had begun with my findings from Cebuano Wikipedia. Towards this end, I have been running the same process on the revision history dataset of the Bosnian Wikipedia. Why Bosnian? Well, apart from being relatively easy for me to process on the fly, I was genuinely curious as to how volatile external conditions would affect the interaction network structure. As it stands, I believe the structure is remarkable similar to that of the Cebuano Wikipedia. I am not sure whether this is entirely a good thing, as far as my expectations go. Differences would have been interesting! BUT I need to do some more analysis to find out for sure. Will post up the results soon.

...oh, and 2010 is here!
