    The United States v1.2.0 Testing

    I’ve been poking at an updated version (1.2.0) of The United States iPad app. The last release was in 2014 and Apple sent me a message that it was going to be removed from the App Store unless I updated it. I don’t really make any money off the $0.99 price tag. It used to be enough to pay for the developer account but has dropped off over the years. Could be I’m not a great app/software markerter too.

    F-Engrave macOS Package Update v1.65

    Packaged up an update to Scorchworks F-Engrave GCODE generator for macOS. It has been a few versions since I updated the package so there was a bit of overhead in getting things set up and working again. I also took the time to clean up the build and update scripts that I use to make the package. One of those, “leave it better than you found it” moments. Perhaps my future-self with thank my current self for the extra work.

    Wandering Words: Tracing Changes in Words Used by Teacher Tweeters Over Time (SIDEWAYS 2017)

    Public school teachers in the United States are often constrained in terms of their ability to express their moral views on issues that a ect their schools, classrooms, students, and teaching practices, but are able to express their ideas, concerns, and frustrations as private citizens using social media. Previously we developed the Tweet Capture and Clustering System (TCCS) in order to explore how teachers use Twitter, looking at word usage among a group of teacher tweeters, and attempting to nd clusters of teachers who have similar patterns of word usage in their tweets. In the work reported here, we look at teacher tweeters across the 12 months of 2016, seeking to understand how the clusters and the words used in these clusters vary from month to month. In this initial look at the dynamics of the system, we see some evidence of word usage changing across the 12-month period. This initial work sug- gests that extending TCCS to have temporal topic tracing as a core capability will be a meaningful addition to of the system.
