Nov 17, 2003: New Online Card Sort Tool; Other Notes

Andy Edmonds, a human factors masters student at Clemson, is developing a new online card sort tool. uzCardSort (currently in v0.9) provides exploratory data analysis and a rudimentary clustering algorithm. It "produces a tab-delimited similarity matrix," and v1.0 will support "a full hierarchical analysis and hopefully a Flash based dendogram." Check out the site; Andy has some sample screen shots to give you a good sense of how uzCardSort works.

Great to see the emergence of these tools to support IA and similar work; I just wish search log analysis tools would catch up...

Other notes: Abe Crystal and Paula Land were kind enough to assemble a trip report from the Dublin Core 2003 "Metadata and Search" pre-conference workshop. It was an excellent, informative workshop; kudos to organizers Joseph Busch and Michael Crandall. I'd been wondering why the heck I was going to DC2003, but after the day was done, I was glad I'd participated; you might consider attending DC2004 if you can make it to Shanghai...

Oh, and the Polar Bear now speaks Polish:
