I am back, doing my research project

Now that City Studios has slowed down for a bit, and I have to get back to my studies – here I am! I am really hoping to get a studio happening shortly, it would be great to have a collaborative space to work from, with 24 hr access and a range of people around…..

I am Kicking off the reseach project, (take 2 – after a start last year) and trying to make head or tail of the  research I have done so far. I will delve more into my topic & its latest revision later…

Just looking at Zotero & VUE, two tools to manage reference & research content, and to map it out visually. I have found them very usefull, but they are quite complex also. They also happen to be  free! and open source…. : )

Also found a little blog entry on using this type of tool while studying….. I also stumbled across Uberstudent – a Ubuntu Distro for students! so I decided to download it to take it for a spin..

I also have discovered piwik, a OS (open source) version of google (web) analytics and it has occured to me that I could use it as an open source version of Google Power Meter. I think google are doing some great stuff, but have got to much information on most peoples lives, and have previously not respected privacy… therefore i want to go open source.

lots to do, will keep you posted……

var pkBaseURL = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://www.citystudios.org/piwik/” : “http://www.citystudios.org/piwik/”);
document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src='” + pkBaseURL + “piwik.js’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”));

try {
var piwikTracker = Piwik.getTracker(pkBaseURL + “piwik.php”, 4);
piwikTracker.trackPageView();
piwikTracker.enableLinkTracking();
} catch( err ) {}
