Looking for Hackers: i/we/us vs. you/they/their in News

Team Name: i/we/us vs. you/they/their in News

Outline of project & requirements from team members

I can’t form a team in this Hackathon, due to time limitations. But I like to share this idea and if a team likes to pick up I’d be glad to support you when it comes to data architecture / schema design. :slight_smile:

If you look at the use of personal pronouns as well as their (frequency of) use in news, can you deduce a correlation to the mood of the news? Can potential findings be used for nowcasting the present or even forecasting events?

Team member skills required


How many team members wanted


Time Zone (to facilitate collaboration)



I like it! Is it “us” or “them”? Are we to blame for the mess, or others? How much personal responsibility do we take?
