Write a report
Research Report (Team projects of 4 people)
Part 1: Write a short report (4-8 paragraphs) about a research project that one of you is involved in or one of our professors is doing (including at least one figure and one URL to a website or paper). Post your report on the class wiki or possibly on the CS website.
Part 2: Publicize: Open up Twitter accounts, follow each other (and the Dept), then tweet and retweet the stories posted by fellow students, and track the number of visits to the stories.
Part 3: Track: See if you can trigger uptake of the stories by others outside the class, by retweets, facebook posts, blogs, general media, etc. And finally track if the URLs of the research website or the paper get downloaded more than other work in the department, or more than in the past (establish baseline).
