The book is only 28 pages, so it’s more of a long tutorial than a book, but it still acts as a good introduction to RFID.

The content available so far gives you a brief background on the relevant parts of language — grammar, pragmatics, discourse analysis, etc.

The authors go on to talk about setting up an annotation project: determining your goal, creating your model/specification, and creating/storing your annotations in a flexible but easy to create (by annotators) manner. I had no previous experience in this area, but I had no trouble understanding the subject matter for the most part.

Here are some of the notes I took while reading the book: When you run an Xcode project from a standard (i.e., non-admin) user, you might be asked to enter credentials of a user in the “Developer Tools group.” You can fix this by adding the (current) user to the group: When you purchase something from the Mac App Store, you’ll see a little icon in your dock, but that doesn’t show you the percentage of progress.

Even when we’re not here, the room is drawing a lot of power.

What devices are turned on at any given time depends largely on which of us is here, and what we’re doing.

This project is a system to reduce our power consumption, particularly when we’re not there.

When either of us comes into the room, all we have to do is tap our key fobs on a reader mounted by the door, and the room turns on or off what we normally use. The reader by the door reads the presence or absence of the tags.

If you never did malware analysis before, the material presented can be overwhelming.

It’s not easy to immediately put what you learned into action (you might understand a subject theoretically but might not be comfortable enough with the subject to put it into practice).
