One of the smarter pieces of advice I received in grad school was to write one blog post every week about a paper related to my research interests. Didn't need to be long, just needed to be a post about the core concept of the paper and how it relates to your interests.I should have acted on this advice long ago, but I didn't.
Luckily, tihngs change. Beginning today, every Monday morning around 10:00 Eastern I will be posting a brief writeup to my research blog about research that I'm interested in. Each post will contain the objective of the research, a summary of the paper, and my thoughts on how this research could be used or expanded.
This week I begin with a new paper by my advisor, Alan MacEachren, who is trying to create a framework for assessing the effectiveness of visual analtyics tools in supporting reasoning under uncertainty.
