Last two weeks:

  - finished the marc/mods -> RDF RDFizer
  - finished the OAI-PMH -> RDF RDFizer
  - finished the OCW -> RDF RDFizer (good enough for our demo but needs
more work in the future, synch with OCW and CWSpace for that work)
  - reached nice milestone in Gadget 2.0, including nicer look, better
usability and sexy sparklines
  - wrote an "overlapper" finder that uses hashing collisions and there
achieves an O(n) algorithmical performance!
  - generated a demo subset of 1Mt with all the people that appear on
barton, dspace and ocw
  - started designing an RDF transformation pipeline concept to enable
large scale inferencing as a sequence of ad-hoc RDF graph transformation
operators instead of using description logics

This week:

  - work on gadget
    - implement sparkline caching/precomputation
    - implement tree/table view
    - implement ajax-based value pagination

  - work on the RDF pipeline
    - write a loader
    - write a smoosher

  - move to los angeles!
