Talk:   Automatic Summarization of High-Traffic Email Lists


  Because most free software projects are managed on email lists,
  the amount of mail a typical developer needs to read can be
  quite large.  I am developing a tool to generate human-readable
  summaries of the discussion taking place on busy lists, and will
  describe how I am using Perl, R, and other free-software
  technologies to develop this tool.  This talk will focus on the
  tools and techniques, rather than specific algorithms.

Driving Directions:

      * Go west on Baseline and turn right on Broadway.
      * Turn right on Regent Drive.
      * Take the first right that is not a parking lot. This is
        before you get to the pedestrian crosswalk and the
      * Go straight until you get to the parking lot. Parking is
        free after 5:00.  Tennis courts will be to the east.
        You'll be very close to the intersection of Baseline and
      * The building will be directly to the north, enter through
        the door on the left.
