Summer quiet brings coding and writing frenzy

Holidays have resulted in us doing the tasks that can completed individually:
  • Derek is busy writing up a paper based on the data he transcribed and coded from the workshops
  • Howard is writing the code (NetLogo + modelling4all extensions) for his agent-based model that will form the basis of the paper he will give with Ken at the Energy and People conference in September. (Ken is currently in West Papua doing a OLPC project with a local school!) 
  • Alex is close to finishing which means we'll be able to start developing info-graphics (the dripping bucket and the Olympic race track being the ultimate goal). The Processing.js  library looks very useful and we want to package everything up as reusable and configurable widgets - Sander at OSSW knows more. 
So in summary August and first half of September is going to be mostly about writing code and conference papers. We will then start to plan the end of project event, and where we want to take the project next.
