TRIP Workshop

I spent the morning and early afternoon at a workshop on the state of IR, run by the William and Mary folks who run the TRIP project.  Over the past decade, these folks have collected a bunch of data surveying IR profs and collecting information from the articles published in IR journals.  They are now seeking new eyes on the dataset, so a bunch of us have met to use the data and talk about it.  The papers today were most interesting, so I am repeating the live-tweets I sent out earlier today. *
* We finished early so that we could go hiking and be social, but the torrential rains meant Star Trek instead.  I don't yet have an IR angle on the movie, but may have something eventually.
