I last attended a Nobel prize lecture in Toronto at the Ontario Science centre Polanyi in 1986 or 87. He touched on gun control.

I have not blogged much since after my first year or two of working in government. Partly this is because I must work at a certain level of secrecy to protect citizen data and citizen personal information. I am working mostly programming in the SAS statistical programming and data management computer language.

I have moved out of school for now. I have made many work place associates. I work hard at work like I did in school. I tend to code long 100 line or more programs in the SAS computer language for work. I learned this language at school in my statistics degree. I have come to know many SAS Press authors in the last two years. I have met these authors at the annual user conference. I was tempted to write a book myself for SAS Press and started this project last year.

Studying more about data gathering and taking a part time job in coding text drawn down from the net.
I have been reading a bit about qualitative interviewing which may come before focus groups. I have read a few other books on data gathering from human subjects in the past few years. I have not read a great deal about this yet.
I started training tonight for some work in text analytics. I am being possibly employed to code or classify text coming from popular Internet sites. I am not sure this job will work out.
