More > visualization of the largest accumulation of human knowledge and a poetic gesture towards the inhuman scale of big data. Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia's content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less

This study aims to improve understanding of how equipment replacement decisions are supported with data collection and quantitative models at state DOTs, and to determine if models found in research... More > literature offer better support when applied to real fleet usage and cost data. It also addresses the use of “green” criteria in replacement decisions, and the development of new replacement models. Responses from DOTs show little consistency in the criteria used in replacement decisions, as well as no use of “green” criteria. Most DOTs use information systems of cost and usage data as part of the replacement process. To see if a particular model performs better than those used in practice, a simulation was conducted to evaluated the effectiveness of models for prioritizing equipment replacement. Models from research literature were compared to a replacement model like those used by DOTs. Results show that models used in practice provide similar results to the best model from the research literature.< Less
