More facet-y goodness. Posted on 02/07/2002.

The comments area on my last facets post is hopping. In the meantime, Prof. Marti Hearst sent me a pointer to research and design being done at Cal on a project called Flamenco. Lots of thinky PDFs for your downloading pleasure.

Fellow lost causes can join me in hearing Prof. Hearst talk about this work at the UC Berkeley Digital Library Seminar on Feb 11 from 4p-5:30p. If you're thinking of going, let me know. I'd love to grab a coffee beforehand (mmmm, Caffe Nefeli....)
