Temporarily busy

Yes, my life being a student does have it’s rough edges from time to time. After getting graded an 8 for our seminar-document (which is kind of depressing considering the good comments we received during the seminar, and the bulky document we’ve come up with. I know, quantity is not quality, but we’ve tried to be as complete as we

One document to rule them all

Getting things done has to be, by far, the nicest thing a student can achieve. Today, roughly an hour before the deadline that is just what happened to me and my co-workers, we’ve gone final! Yes, you’ve read it right; our seminar document is now completed and ready for you to read and possibly even frown upon. Please click here

Frantic times

When you’ve been to college (of any form: MBO, HBO, WO, other) you probably know the drill: several hours before the deadline some frantic work is done to get everything in order to meet the final deadline set by your teacher.

Questions posed

Tomorrow, the seminar-class has been canceled as our professor is attending a seminar of his own. It has been rescheduled to Thursday I’ll come back to that then. While our professor is currently out of town, and even out of our country, we’ve stumbled upon several important questions regarding the transformation of XBRL into OWL, and thus ontologies. Due to

It took a while…

But then it became clear to all of us: our professor is just trying to get our possible findings published! (And he is right too! ) Anyway, today we had the group-session in which the semi-definitive object became clearer. As an assignment for again a group session next week we are to fiddle about with several programs and some

Group sessions are ahead

Tomorrow is a big day in the seminar: it’s the day the groups (3 in total) all have separate, semi-individual while in a group, sessions with our professor. Here, we have to lay out our strategy to tackle the problem posed in the first part of the class: How to translate an XBRL-document into an OWL-document. We’ve been reading a
