1) I've posted presentation videos and slide decks from the 2013 Sentiment Analysis Symposium. They're publicly available, no registration required. My goal is simply to give back to the community.
2) I'm planning two conferences for the first half of 2014, the first in New York in late February or early March, the second in Paris on June 2-3. I've set up a short market-research survey. Please share your thoughts on topics & speakers, conference format, and the conference name. I would really like to break away from the "sentiment analysis" label, which is too narrow for the many topics, in business-applied analytical computing, that the symposium already covers. Would you please help by completing the survey. It's anonymous, unless you choose to volunteer your name, and should take no more than 3 minutes.
Please contact me if you have questions regarding the conferences, and as always, I welcome contact from people with interesting stories or challenges in the text / content / social analytics and BI spaces. Do get in touch!
