About

The aim of the blog is to foster discussion about tools and track the project’s progress.

The image chosen as a banner for this website is from the White Water Terraces (白水台) in Lijiang, Yunnan: a spectacular geological site where deposits of calcium carbonate have created terraces of white pools. This impressive site created by the solidification of invisible particles looked like a fitting visual metaphor for our project: capturing the lightest and most ephemeral of things — the flow of speech, and preserving it in a beautiful form, making it available as an object of study, research, or simple enjoyment.

If you are more interested in the project’s output than in its ramblings, go straight to the real thing: the online data sets being put online as part of the Pangloss Collection.
