Project study-blog

The study-blog diarizes the progress of the project. It includes reflective commentaries on pertinent research papers of interest and will form the kernel of the literature review. As data has arrived, the study-blog also records many of the analysis processes that have been learned and applied to try to make sense of it all and these writings will contribute to the data-analysis write-up and inform the discussion part of the final thesis. All blog-posts are also available here as single-file pdf documents to view or to download and print.
