We updated the final project page with a schedule and the detailed project requirements. Please take a look.
We also added a few project board to the class forum, where you’ll be able to find team mates, project ideas, and data sources.
It is not too early to start thinking about your final projects. Find a topic you’re passionate about, formulate some interesting questions, find data, and create a cool interactive visualization to answer your questions. Easy as a pie chart. ;-)

Processing sketches show today by Moritz Baecher are now online on the downloads page.
Unfortunately, the video recording of the section failed. The A/V staff is sorry this happened - but there is nothing we can do to correct it.

We updated HW 1, Part 2, to clarify the assignment:
Updated: You must gather text from at least 5 different URLs. These can be multiple pages of data from a single website or they can be from several different websites altogether. More is encouraged, but let this be a minimum. The point is to equip you to scrape any website for data.
Feel free to ask the TFs if you have specific questions about this.

Slides for lecture 4 are now online. The video production takes a bit longer than usual.
I also posted the Python code that Samir showed last Friday and the Processing notes that Moritz will discuss this Friday during section on the download page.
And I fixed the links to the slides for lecture 1 and 2.
