From Facebook’s Data Science team: what we (Americans that is) are thankful for facebook.com/notes/facebook… No surprises, yet nice.
@RubenVerborgh Five reviews, five times “2 (accept)”. That’s a first :-)
@edsu Right. For the time being, one can <del>at best</del><ins>simply</ins> roll ones own instance of Wikipedia Live Monitor ;-)
@edsu Fully agree. Human in the loop makes total sense, also common “stop hashtags”, like stop words now. Internationally for all languages.
@edsu (In no way saying current settings’re perfect.) Long-term, article analysis needed & better understanding of article creation process.
@edsu Getting these thresholds “right” is incredibly hard. Also very much a matter of taste and how “breaking” you require the news to be.
@edsu Yes. Also surprised, but breaking news conditions (see paper or settings in app) weren’t fulfilled. Mostly ≥3 concurrent editors one.
Spent the night working on a <polymer-ldf-client> element—Linked Data Fragments client as a Web Component. (CC:@RubenVerborghh)
@dret Thanks! Exciting times ahead :-)
Yahoo and Mozilla announce a five year search deal that makes Y! the default search engine in Firefox: blog.mozilla.org/blog/2014/11/1…
@MarkusLanthaler Well plaid ;-) Not sure I will find the time to dive into the source code, though…
@derSteve Tell me if you can compile it; I’m not entirely sure of the .gitignore (ignored common Eclipse & GWT files, hopefully correctly).
@derSteve GitHub wasn’t around yet in 2007 ;-) Happy to move; tonight, though, as I’m on the road now…
@derSteve The code generation snippets in com·google·code·apis·rest·client·CodeGeneration·* is the best I can offer then. Sorry.
If you’re using local-reverse-geocoder (npmjs.org/package/local-…), please update to v0.0.7 that uses a better distance formula.
@WikiResearch Has anyone ever examined which of the examined disease articles had a Google HTTP refer(r)er, i.e., came from disease queries?
@magrawala You’re bundling way too much files. Check the manifest.json for the necessary files. Great work nevertheless.
@magrawala Version I have (d3-deconstructor.crx) contains an extension (decon-plugin.crx) in an extension (decon-plugin.crx) in an extension
@magrawala Why is the bundled extension so huge?
pietercolpaert “Only use open standards”, I was told in a “.doc” document. Attached a tar with txt file containing base64 encoding of “OK” and hit “send”.
@pietercolpaert Merci :D I needed a local batch geocoder and there was none, so I made one ;-) All props to the GeoNames folks for the data!
I’ve made an Apache 2.0 licensed, dependency-free local reverse geocoder for Node.js based on GeoNames-npmjs.org/package/local-…G
@RubenVerborgh Yeah, aware of this “audialization”. Loving it!
Walked around aimlessly on the streets of San Francisco just to bump into my former intern @arnaudbrousseau… Beers are going to be had.
Infodisiac 1 minute Wikipedia pageviews (480,000 avg) / Twitter tweets (320,000 9am EST) = 1.5. In other words curiosity beats vanity 3:2

@nelson Works most of the time, but occasionally doesn’t. Experienced this as well.
@netlabsorg One of the few things I missed from Windows Explorer now finally on Mac :-) Power to the right click!
