For those in Copenhagen (all 400+ of you!) I thought a reminder about
the workshop might entice a few of you to set the alarm and join us
for the session. A few salient facts:

+ The software applications I am teaching are free to use on the web
+ The session is hands-on in a very nice computer lab
+ You will learn how to create archives of blog posts
+ You will learn how to code that data using a mix of automation and keystrokes
+ You will learn how easy it is to measure inter-rater reliability
+ You will learn about a "validity" measurement technique

Perhaps most important, you can join a growing group of CAT and BAT
users and help to shape the future development of the software. So, I
hope we will have a nice a group.
