Wednesdays@NICO Seminar, Noon, September 26 2007, Chambers Hall, Lower Level

Profs. Janet Pierrehumbert, Adilson Motter, Chun-Liang Chan and Seth Myers, Northwestern University

Abstract 

The topic of this seminar is the Wordemics project. Wordemics is a social network language game played by a group of people using a Flash web interface. We will first play the game, and then Janet and Adilson will explain to you what it is all about. Please turn out in as large numbers as possible, bringing with you your wireless-enabled laptops supporting Flash. Bring your lab groups! Bring your friends! Janet and Adilson will be very happy if we can fill all 75 places in the room, as bigger networks give more interesting data.
