Here I presented work done on my dissertation so far. The doctoral consortium allows me to acquire feedback from the community before I submit my dissertation proposal to the university. Here I propose using a visualization of representative mementos to aide in collection understanding of web archive collections, as inspired by AlNomanay's work.
This is a presentation of social media storytelling tools that were covered in a blog post written for the Web Science and Digital Libraries research group.
A variety of fan-based wikis about episodic fiction (e.g., television shows, novels, movies) exist on the World Wide Web. In this presentation, I detailed issues with using the Interent Archive to avoid spoilers.
The rise in fan-based wikis allows fans to discuss TV shows and books in ways never before seen. Unfortunately, as fans, we have the problem of spoilers. In this talk I demonstrate how one can use the Memento MediaWiki Extension to avoid spoilers in fan wikis.
The Internet Archive attempts to reconstruct web pages via snapshots (Mementos) that are taken of pages at various points in time. Many pages change more frequently than the Internet Archive can capture them, meaning that some revisions of a given web page are lost forever. Mediawiki, however, has all past revisions of a given page, and also its associated external resources.
This video shows how to use the Memento Mediawiki Extension to avoid spoilers on fan-based wikis. To achieve this, the Memento Mediawiki Extension must be installed on the given fan-based wiki, and then used with the Memento Chrome Extension.
The Memento Chrome Extension can help avoid spoilers in fan wikis. This video briefly demonstrates how it does so.
I was invited to presented Test Driven Development to the ODU chapter of the ACM. Here I provide an introduction to the methodology, why one should use it, and the results of personal experience using the methodology, as well as why some do not think it is worthwhile.
