History of the Research Cooperative

The Research Cooperative was established in 2001 as an not-for-profit initiative. Our first network, The Research Cooperative NZ, operated successfully for seven years, using an open-source system customised by Dr Cees Lensink (Webcase, NZ).


Our new network is based on a generic social-networking system provided by Ning.com, and offers better security and better communication tools for our members and visitors.


See our introduction in English for further information on the aims and history of the network.

The top logo of our network shows two figures sitting back to back, in red. I made the following version on 30th April 2011 after seeing a great Paul Klee exhibition in Kyoto, where I live.

Associative Search for Social Networks

Posted on May 11, 2014 at 22:00 0 Comments

I often wonder what the ideal search system for members of social network like ours.

Recently I heard the phrase "associative search" for the first time.

This kind of search is relevant for the museum where I work. We have public access databases, but these merely give results that exactly match the keywords entered into an in house search engine. There is no intelligence in our database…

Dr./Prof. Matthews, I hope you enjoyed perusing the book I sent on the recyclability of farm and agro-industrial byproducts for fibre. Thank you for your comments and suggestions.

I am writing to request any of those who might want to receive FREE copies of my trade paperback which I will be sending out in the next month or so in 2014.

As the second Edition is due in 2015 I would also like to whet their appetites for this coming new book in case any show a further interest in their research.

Sincerely,

Mr. D. Flores
Co-op Member

Hello,
Thank you for your warm welcome and question regarding a control group.
At this point in time we will not be able to have a control group. The project has had some organizational bumps and so the scope will be need to be narrowed a bit. It basically needed to be up and running in terms of offering the service to the surrounding community on 6/1/14. So we are assessing what data we will actually be able to collect.
