Storyboarding/Scripting
Participants will work through visualizing the story and coming up with a script for the video. Storyboarding does not require artistry, but can help you think through what different visuals you will want for your final video. Scripting is necessary in order to ensure that all of the elements are gathered prior to putting the video together, and to get a good estimate on timing. This session is geared towards Deep Dive participants, but is open to all. We will have sample projects for those who don’t have a video project in mind but are interested in hands-on experience developing a script.

Intro to 3D Modeling
Now that 3D printing has been reliably established on campus, the next step is to create your own 3D models. Traditional modeling tools like AutoCAD are expensive and have a steep learning curve. Fortunately for us, there is new, free software that makes modeling more accessible than ever before. In this workshop, we’ll learn about the basic tools for 3D modeling, and start designing our own models. By the end, each participant will have created their own, printable 3D model!

Makerspaces
Makerspaces—sometimes also referred to as hackerspaces, hackspaces, and fablabs—are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn. In libraries they often have 3D printers, design software, electronics, craft and hardware supplies, and more. While the early adopters have been large schools like USC, these facilities are becoming more affordable for smaller schools. LC wants to enter the fray. Will it happen?

Cleaning Messy Datasets
Often the most important meanings in our datasets are not easily available on the “surface” of the data. Perhaps the data have been generated or entered in inconsistent ways. Perhaps the meaning you are looking for has to do with the relationship between records, rather than the content of records themselves. Perhaps you need to compare information between datasets that are only roughly comparable, and have no obvious linked key. Techniques will be demonstrated in Excel, but are applicable to any tool or software. In this session we’ll review 1) Recoding with lookup tables 2) Aggregate Positioning techniques allow you to define each record in relation to all like or different records in the entire dataset 3) Matching poorly-related data by constructing new fields to serve as links and comparison points.

Data Ecologies, Implicit Assumptions
As we have come to manage ever more of our lives online, we enact and record our relationships with each other, and with corporations and institutions, through the auto-generated datasets that constitute the internet as we experience it. Our social media interactions, medical care, shopping, and instructional activities, all of it leaves behind what amounts to a teeming amazon of transactional data.

In this session we will start from the perspective of a researcher, looking at examples of the raw data produced by automated data gathering systems. We will examine the ways in which the economic imperatives driving data collection and the social perspectives of system designers are encoded in decisions about which data to collect and how it’s recorded. We will then pose hypothetical research questions of our data, so as to understand the ways in which data analysts and algorithm designers attempt to derive “relevance,” “popularity,” and socioeconomic identity from facially-neutral transactional data. Finally, we will experiment with the ways in which algorithmic selection is structuring our social and intellectual realities through machine curation processes such as Twitter “top tweets” and the Facebook newsfeed.
