Start Up: The financing intricacies of academics – used to be a maze; now getting easier to trace.
1. Discussion: CROW’s schedule for Spring Semester is set for every Thursday. We’ll gather at 11:30, topic discussion from 11:45 – 12:45. Starting: Jan 9
2. Discussion: Ben’s planned grant application to identify depression “valences” in the twitter-sphere
a. Ben summarized the definition of social modeling (the focus of the grant) in terms of mood of twitter correspondents. Research questions include whether tweets can be given a “depression” valence, whether valence can be affected by response tweets within a social network, and whether valence can be affected by deliberately placed tweets. Interventions were discussed, along with ethical issues and feasibility, e.g. post-partum mothers who may be experiencing onset of depression. Further research questions could include tweets from hospital patients, and the ability to assist them on discharge.
3. Next Workshop Meeting(s): NEW MEETING TIME on Thursdays, 11:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m., at Given Courtyard South Level 4. Remember: the first 15 minutes are for checking in with each other.
a. January 9: TBA
