The Joy of Hackfests


This is the first of a series of posts on our late spring hackfest for the Text Mining and Visualization project. The first of them is “The Joy of Hackfests” at Stéfan Sinclair’s blog, “the scribblings & musings of an incorrigible digital humanist.”

He describes his involvement with the cryptically named non-NER non-RDF visualization team. Other small groups were working on machine learning with WEKA and named entity extraction as well as generating RDF and visualizing triples from the Orlando Project textbase.
