Here come the twits

In brief:
  • 09:54 At #socialmedia workshop; have heard from Noah Smith on predicting the future with tweets #naacl2010 #
  • 09:55 Noah Smith is doing (v) shallow NLP on tweets and getting good correlation on Gallup confidence indices #socialmedia #naacl2010 #
  • 09:57 Aji paper #socmed10 on sentiment analysis #
  • 09:59 Noah Smith's future-prediction talk points to cool regression tech: PoissonLDA ; LRegr with Elastic Regularization #socmed10 #naacl2010 #
  • 14:57 Approaching 3000 tweets. Burned out from wise or insightful twittering by conference. #
  • 19:00 On flyaway bus to airport in LA. Wiped out but had a great conference. #naacl2010 miss my wife and glad to see her tonight! #
  • 19:21 Arriving LAX. Cloudy. This is confusing, LA. I'm leaving, and NOW you look like Seattle? #
  • 19:42 Security queues at LAX are ridiculous. Hope I make my flight. I have an hour. #
  • 20:02 Ugh concerns moot: flight delayed. Sigh. #

I often use twitter to mention what's happening or linkdump. I LT here for posterity.
