Joe -- this is a fascinating set of experiments, and I loved the detailed analysis. Where will you go with this?

Joe McCarthy

Thanks, Dan.

I observed some interesting patterns during my filtering of the 6700 candidate target user accounts, and would like to explore how NLTK and/or other language processing tools might be used to detect those patterns across a broader population.

I'd also like to tidy up some of the tools I built over the past few weeks to make them available to others.

And I'm working on a CSCW 2012 proposal with Tim Hwang that we hope will offer another opportunity to experiment, and take advantage of everything we've learned from the first 2 experiments (and another one that Tim and his colleagues are working on now).


Awesome write-up! Really interesting stuff.

Derek Sine

Very cool!
