I got some MATH TA work done today. I also talked for about ten minutes on the train with a fellow MATH statistics graduate from my graduating class. She is almost finshed her M.Sc. now. We talked about ethics in statistics work and of course some more basic shop talk.
I attended a community meeting after class and worked on some of that work when I got home.

Title: The legal relationships of cyberspace entities involved in ecommerce exchange.
This paper examines entities involved in the ecommerce environment of exchange of goods and services over the Internet using a model for cyberstudies proposed by ethnographer David Hakken. Using this model as a descriptive framework the entities are examined for their legal relationships to each other at the scales of measure suggested by Hakken's model. Where possible cases and statutes establishing law in the ecommerce environment, are shown to apply to the entities and their relations between each other. Where law has not been established between the entities or over the scale of analysis provided by the model, a general discussion of possible legal outcomes is attempted.

I got taken out of Math1009 and got reassigned to MATH 1005 on Thursday night. I found out about it Friday morning and just made it to school to give the first tutorial for MATH1005 at 9:30 in the morning. I also gave the MATH1104 tutorial later in the early afternoon. I have worked 1.5 hours on each of these two math courses now.
I have been refining my essay topic for LAWS4204. I will attempt to use David Hakken's model for the analysis of legal relationships in ecommerce.
I got a job to do a questionaire for a group I am involved with in the community.
I attended a public consultation and focus group on the cities budget.

I am worried now about my mid-term paper for LAWS4204. I have choosen to do something original for my topic. I want to look at community development using the Internet and somehow relate this to ecommerce. I have been reading about the formation of various Internet governance bodies involved in domain names and the root zone file.

I am reading a book on GIS and the Law by George Cho.
I read chapters 1,2 & 5 from Legal Research a Step- by Step Guide by Margaret Kerr. I also worked on my LAWS3907 homework earlier this morning. But I used the wrong law dictionary so will have to redo this on Monday afternoon before class.
I read the first two articles in chapter 9 of my LAWS4204 casebook today. This inspired me to phone my brother.
I got my Little SAS Book back from a fellow worker who was borrowing it.
I tried to use laylinalg with MAPLE 7 but failed to get it to work as a package.
I read a little moral philosophy a few days ago. I read about the Cynics.
I read a few of last weeks newspapers. That is the Ottawa Citizen, that I call a newspaper. It is one of my cities daylies.

I did not look inside these books. I need to read these books a little. The one book I did borrow is:
R.Williams and Bruce A. Arrigo, Law, Psychology and Justice, Chaos Theory and the New (Dis)order (Albany: State University of New York Press, 2001).
I have read the first few chapters of this book already this past fall, 2003.

I started my LAWS3907 course yesterday. I attended the first class. About four of the guys from my LAWS4305 course are also taking LAWS3907 this term with me.
We got our first assignment due in 2 weeks on the Monday. I have done parts of it now and have started the word processing file for that assignment. The assignment involves proper citation for both footnotes/endnotes and bibliographies. Also we have some legal dictionary work to do in this assignment. I have not used a legal dictionary before so this is new work for me. The assignment also involves preliminary legal research, basically library work on a topic in legal studies. We need to brainstrom a topic (This I have done.), then pick one topic, find one source for this topic (This I have also done), then we need to spend a few hours in the library finding more sources then summarise these sources in terms of the scope they cover for our topic.
My topic is specifically the Judicary and capitalist health care but as it relates to the mental health field and mental disabilities. I will probably work with it a little more in general terms like Judges and capitalist health care. I will search out Acts or Statutes that cover health in Canada. I will also look into medical law. I have read some things on consent this past summer but I will broaden my scope in this paper due at the end of term.
