I know, I know. I have enough projects already and I never seem to get any of them done... But I just can't help myself. Since I got done with most of the wiki parsing stuff a while ago I got to thinking about applying that to do transcript statistics.

A couple years ago there was a website (probably still exists, I'll look for it in my bookmarks later) that did a really good job of doing comparisons for State of the Union Addresses and comparing them. You could take a word, like Terrorism or Iraq or whatever phrase you wanted and compare how many times they show up in a speech and compare these with multiple transcripts.

I think that might be a cool thing to try.

Even though I have a link to it under the logo menu item, Link Blog, you can view a snippet of the items I share in google reader over the course of the day on the right bottom side of the front page.

So as you can see I added a bunch of my old articles. You can probably safely ignore these, they are so old (some from high school) that they are very simple without much substance.

Doing this though allowed me to test some of the robustness of the site and find any errors, which I did. You can view the changelog to see what I fixed. I also added a new feature which I think can help the site if it the top menu starts to get cluttered.

I am almost done with the first version of online neTodo. There is a demo login people can use to test it out just go here and login with demo/demo for login and password. As soon as I finish all the rest of the items on my list for neTodo I'll release it everyone to register to.

I added a new menu item under the logo called Link Blog which is a list of items I've marked as shared through google reader. It's a glimpse into some of the stuff I end up posting here and alot of stuff I don't.

In other news I've been mulling over how I want to approach posting more content to the site as most of it has ended up being political in nature or about the environment. This is in fact only a small portion of my daily life, where I actually spend most of my time programming, reading, and philosophizing.

I have never been good at organizing my self. For all my endeavors into doing so (book cases, file cabinets, plastic bins, cork board, etc), it has all amounted to organized chaos. Much like how this site came to be in the first place, where it is an attempt to bring a little order to my own chaotic mind, so I can have some semblance of backing up my otherwise intractable thoughts.

Hopefully I will do better.

The in deep thought code base has just reached v0.3. You can view the changelog to see the changes.

I have been developing the back-end for in deep thought for a long time now and I think the time has come for it to evolve into an actual web site package. To that end I have named the package neThing. That doesn't change anything about the site itself. It is still called in deep thought and nothing has really changed except at the bottom it now reads Powered by neThing. Eventually I'll package neThing for others to use.
