“Be nice to people on your way up because you’ll meet them on your way down.” – Wilson Mizner
Autumn is already started! Here in Germany, it won’t take so long to shift from summer to winter therefore autumn has a short life span! It is really a strange season for me, a season which brings a flashback to the past, reminds me of the first days of school and makes a good motivation for spring! Nothing seems to be absolutely binary in this world, there is always an adoption phase when there should be a shift from 1 to 0 so that the gaps are filled! I really enjoy listening to Fariborz Lachini‘s musics, especially “dance of leaves”:
I watched “The Past” directed by Asghar Farhadi in the weekend. It was a wonderful movie like his previous movies. A film which tells you a story from different perspectives. It continues to clarify the issue by collecting facts from different persona who have different concerns. Suddenly, you will come to an open end which could be judged differently by the different perceptions.
The recent highlights:
- presenting the first working version of conTEXT in Leipzig Semantic Web day. I will write more about this new project for lightweight text analytics in my next posts.
- submitting a proposal for this year Semantic Web Challenge.
- Open sourcing SlideWiki platform.
- My survey paper on “User interfaces for semantic authoring of textual content” is finally online.
