To: Economic Geography Subject: Geog.498 - Post Mortem: Week 8 Hello! We met yesterday and enjoyed presentation by Craig, Ann and Steve. (T.J. was not able to come and present). We discussed among other things the desirability of having a still better facility to make comments on papers and pages (and I admit(ted) that I could be more diligent in commenting on your pages and comments). Let's all improve our ways. If anyone of you is at the point where you need specific comments or feedback from me before you can proceed, PLEASE make your request by E-mail (this has worked well in the past and with some of you this quarter). In the meantime, have a look at this URL and explore with me whether this mode may be useful for comments and collaboration: /~krumme/450/lit450.html (click on the first hyperlink on that page) Next Wednesday, T.J. and I will take over the agenda. For preparing yourself for my presentations, you may want to have a look at: (1) for my No.1 and 2 effort: /~krumme/projects/demo.html (2) for my No.3 project (example): /~krumme/projects/segmentation.html T.J.: Please give us some indication how we could best get in-tune with your interests before Wednesday... Please also think about how we could best spend our meetings in weeks #10 and #11? What form should the "final presentations" take? IMPORTANT: Let me add that I (of course!) expect that ALL OF YOU in this Internet seminar will be able to present your final version (at the very latest!) in HTML, with hyperlinks, hyperlinked bibliography etc.. If you need help, this is the time to get it (from me or others), NOT during the 10th or 11th week! Shaun should be congratulated for the excellent set of pages he has put togther. Clearly, he on track on all scores: a) content (quality and quantity) b) page design and integration c) bibliography/ references/ d) HTML etc. etc. There are several other page systems which deserve high marks. (Please have a look at them!) There still is plenty of time to get your own research and ideas on "paper", develop your bibliography and resource links, design the "system" of electronic presentation, learn the basics of HTML etc. and ... very (!) carefully edit your writing (as well as use the speller, ctrl "T"). For those of you who are behind: Ultimately only those topics will be accepted as contributions for this Workshop which have been introduced and discussed during the course of the quarter. Please nothing new during the eleventh week! Please be sure (!) that all your matrix boxes are filled with something (if only your linked table of contents). If you insist on using a different system (which you may), please let me know which boxes (weeks) I should close so that we do not waste our time trying to open empty files all the time! Don't hesitate to use our comment form for responding to anything raised in this message... E-mail works too, so does our matrix. And again, do not hesitate to ask me specific questions. This is all part of a "seminar" or "workshop". G.K. P.S. Finally, I am resending last week's post-mortem just to make sure that some of your questions related to the "final versions" are answered...
