I completed the five conference paper reviews in draft form.

I completed my reviews after getting some guidelines from the conference organizers. I changed my mind about some of the papers. I read each one through one more time and then wrote my review notes and rated the papers. I will now sleep on this for a couple of days and do a final submission later in the week.

I have conference paper submissions to review this weekend.

I have been assigned, as a volunteer, five conference paper submissions to review. I have read each of the five abstracts once throught thoughtfully. I have some ideas and critiques in mind. I should read some instructions on how to format and write a paper review, as I have no formal training in this other than being a fellow researcher. I need to check online for some instruction.

I helped organize a panel submission to an Internet Research conference: IR12.

I helped organize a submission for a panel discussion of participation and the Internet including exclusion and inclusion and underground art. I also volunteered to review submissions and have some to read and comment on now.

I have a fair amount of paperwork piling up at Computers For Communities

I need to type up our committee terms of reference documents that each committee chair has submitted. This is just the newest document set I have volunteered to do work on. I also need to work on the privacy policy and the educational committee documents.

I am reading the consumer reports automative review for 2011.

I am looking at used cars. I read the review of the used cars in the Consumer Reports annual auto issue. This is how my dad always shops for cars.
