exercise left to the reader

3/12, noon: Understanding Spam Economics – Chris Kanich, UC San Diego; Brown CS Dept.

Got to use unrestricted corporate gift funds to make purchases (category: “men’s health”) from foreign pharmacies for the sake of science. Distractingly great pocket square / tie.

3/15: 7pm: Czech It Out: Talk on Language Corpora and Czech – Dr. Vaclav Cvrcek, Czech National Corpus; Brown Language Society

“Vaclav Havel? Milos Forman? If you have not heard of those, you have at least heard of — and this is what Czechs themselves care about — beer.” Endearing. I would fail so hard at “Třista třicet tři stříbrných stříkaček stříkalo
přes třista třicet tři stříbrných střech.” Apparently, corpora must be static (so cannot be ‘the internet’).

title: “for the sake of completeness”
