Moodviews and Rhythms

Reminder reference.
(via Technometria)

Blogs are one of the places on the web you can reliably find people’s writing about their moods. Krisztian Balog presented a paper called “Decomposing Bloggers’ Moods: Towards a Time Series Analysis of Moods in the Blogosphere.” This can be used to produce interesting data. For example, MoodViews tracks a stream of mood-annotated text from LiveJournal. MoodViews tracks, predicts, and analyzes moods on blogs.

This also reminds me of the CSCW work on temporal rhythms, see a list of prior work (here). The references from this class page are:
