little bit of hacking in Bloomington

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

It’s Tuesday night in Bloomington! Time for some relaxing hacking on NLTK

Making NLTK’s interface to MaltParser a little more usable
MaltParser is rad. Been reading about dependency parsing algorithms, and how to use this one in practice…
– Also, NLTK trunk wasn’t even loading today. Yeep! (Fixed!)

– asleep in Mountain View after a busy day at Mozilla. What with the FF4 release and all.
– also: got code in the Rust compiler today.

Over in Athens: ClassyHack??

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Meeting without Kelly tonight — and hoping he gets over the evil flu soon.

Attendees: Marilyn, Michael, Virendra.

Talked about another venue for next week (George’s Low Country, Walker’s, Hendershot’s?) to avoid downtown hustle/bustle. Michael and Virendra are currently talking about three-dimensional database results and other cubic PhD topics. Marilyn’s “almost” done with some long-winded perl scripting for blogging: Marilyn recommended the HackNY summer program to Michael — he applied and Marilyn also wrote a quick rec for him to one of the organizers.
