POST WORKSHOP
DEADLINE 11.10.2013
- TEXT: Upload your text/1000 word following our vocabulary (as rtf (or doc) and txt)
- IMAGES: Upload images in .jpg – naming: surname_number e.g. charlton_1, charlton_2, etc.). James will run a script on all images that compares to the average of all images. This will change them considerably.
- CAPTIONS: If necessary, add as a separate txt file – indicating which image names they belong to (e.g. charlton_1)
- BIO: Upload as .txt document. The bio will go next to your text. Include only name + institutional affiliation or profession.
- BIBLIOGRAPHY: Insert your bibliography/list of references in the document (in dropbox folder)
- VOCABULARY/LIST:  Use Florian’s script to be found in dropbox code folder (guidelines in the file if opened as txt), and upload. You need to have a Mac OS X or Linux computer for that, and be familiar with using the command line. The list will appear alongside the article. In need of help/command line helplessness: write to Florian & he’ll do it for you.

DEADLINE 18.10.2013
- VISUALIZATIONS: Import your vocabulary/list to e.g., Excel. When imported you can select the rows and choose a chart as a visualization to play around and upload one to inspire the designer. If the import appears in two columns, change it to two columns (copy, pase special and choose ‘transpose’).
- - Your visualization will provide an inspirtion for the designer – who we are also to produce visualizations. The visualizations will appear alongside your article.
- COMMON DEFINITION (the one with the highest score) will go into the newspaper centerfold along with the average image (produced by james). The definition is accessible in the dropbox folder. You are encouraged to change the definition – but only using words from our dictionary, and keeping the text at precisely 100 words (as it is now).
