Our own Joe Eckert helped found SoMe Lab in collaboration with two other students from the iSchool (Jeff Hemsley and Shawn Walker). SoMe Lab is a social media laboratory at the University of Washington. They're building data collection and analysis services for "big" social media data. Their ideas and work were used as the core of a successful NSF grant proposal (INSPIRE) for $997,000. Congratulations to Joe and the rest of the SoMe Lab team!
