Presentation

Here, at the Web Science program, my team members (Dayah, Fuming, and me) have prepared a presentation with the title of “unexpected openness” for three days, and today we presented.

It was a really good activity. I could see how people bring up their ideas, how to mix them, and how to improve them. Fuming kept saying “Let’s do crazy things,” and I quite did my best not to miss ideas that poped up in my mind.

I found that I haven’t done this kind of discuss for my study or whatever. Usually I think by myself. Even though sometimes I asked other people’s opinion, I didn’t really try to develop further and further. It was very fun and interesting to gether each other’s idea, jot down on the white board, and refine them.

The schedule has been so tight so far. I have been inside most of the time here, and I don’t even  know how the weather’s like these days. Tomorrow I’ll go to the Adirondack Park and take a rest. Excited!

Web Science Summer Graduate School

I’m attending the Web Science Summer Graduate School.
I thought this program would focus more on social aspects of the Web, and there would be people from diverse fields. In fact, almost all participants came from the CS field.
To me, the biggest issue is English, which is quite hard to speak and even harder to understand, especially when non-native speakers say. Another thing is the basic topic, the semantic Web, which I don’t really know about well. I should read general articles about the semantic Web and get myself familar with “ontologies” of this area. (But somehow it’s really hard to do at night. Too tired.)
First time I came in to class, everyone was so active and looked professional. Actually, most of them are Ph.D students. They have several papers and can be said to be experts. I was quite depressed because I felt they were very different from me. (Thesedays, I’m tatally occupied by my research topic. I should determine one ASAP). However, now I’m recovering courage as I talk with other people and feel getting closer to each other, I mean, personally. It’s definitely true, though, that they are really smart and professional.
