Could you enlighten me please as to what this 'project' is about?
Is it another climate project that we can run work units on or is it just a place to discuss/rant/rave about various issues, but mainly Climate based?

Thanks
Conan

Hi Conan,

I'm in the middle of getting everying up and running, and just made a news post about this.

Long and short of it is we have a huge dump of 2,000,000 tweets about climate change from Twitter. We've made a webpage where you can read them and enter observations (kind of like Wildlife@Home except a lot easier), so we can get a better idea of what's going on in these tweets and eventually train machine learning algorithms to understand them for us.

The webpage is here:

So this is the new project you were talking about?
Kinda disappointing for me. I've more awaited a new project to crunch on and not new stuff for classifying.
However, I made a few and found out, that it is rather hard to determine the attitude for a non-english speaker when the contexts with other tweets aren't given.
I think there can be cases that even some of harmless texts can actually be harmful ones, that's all depending on personal view.
Nothing for me, too bad.

There's another new project for Wildlife@Home that i'm hoping to get up and running once I'm back from Iceland, that's along a similar vein to the video watching. I think it's a bit more fun and easier as well.

Then when I get back from my yearly summer camping trip in early July, I'll have a new Wildlife@Home application that should generate a lot of workunits (i.e., on demand like MilkyWay@Home).

So this isn't all we have in the pipeline. :)

But the big question is:

Will there be badges?

Yup, Lindsey is working on them and from what I've seen so far they will be really cool. :) Tornados and what not.

It does not count on computers or other hardware...
