I am talking a small session for Researchers at Center for Civil Society (New Delhi), on June 10th 2011. The agenda of the session is to how these researchers can use web based tools for effective and efficient data collection over the internet. What are some of the specialised tools for researchers on the internet and how can general websites be convertned into weapons of mass destructions.

In my talk ‘Data – Internet – > Informaton: Doing Effective Research over the Internet’, I will focus on how the Internet collects data and how we can find suitable data for our researches; what are the various tools that can help us do it; some tricks that can be helpful; and how to use the Internet to process this raw data into meaningful information.

The Centre for Civil Society is an independent, non-profit, research and educational organisation devoted to improving the quality of life for all citizens of India by reviving and reinvigorating civil society. More on: http://www.ccsindia.org/
