A sense of community

Mathemagenic

For me there are certain things that stand out from those (next to the food ;): singing together, where every song has a meaning (“West Virginia”, anyone?), Now, as our homeschooling community goes through what I’d call ‘growing pains’ and will morph into something new I feel like catching up a few thoughts of what made it as it is. Weekly rhythm: Thursday meetings. When we started more than three years ago we picked up Thursday as a meeting day.

Where Did February Disappear?

Michael Sampson - Currents

Here’s what I have been up to: - a couple of days consulting with a client in Virginia, focused on governance and adoption for its SharePoint 2013-based collaboration platform.

We talked through the ramifications, the governance decisions, and the adoption plan.

Organising Knowledge>> Where Taxonomy Work is At

Green Chameleon

A nice post from Virginia Henry summarising a talk given by Fran Alexander on the current state of taxonomy work a few days ago.

I suppose one thing that struck me using Leximancer was that these tools are neat but (like their data mining brethren) it'll be a long time before they move beyond specialist uses into the wider world. So much depends on skilled human operation in terms of framing a problem, selecting & screening terms, and interpreting results.
