Reading Group

The Crowd Lab hosts a crowdsourcing reading group at the end of its weekly lab meeting, every Wednesday around 6pm in the Media Building (usually room 206 or the basement conference room). Lab members nominate and lead each paper and discussion. Non-lab members are welcome to attend, provided they read that week’s paper and contact the lab manager ahead of time.
