Answer: just wait until you're completely unmotivated to do anything else. Sunny days with perfect weather are really the only times I get a chance to do any significant literature reviews. This afternoon, when I was unable to get myself to stay in my windowless office, I (finally) sifted through the WSDM proceedings that I'm most interested in, and read a couple papers on trust/distrust propagation. I'm getting better at adding papers to my bibsonomy [rss]. The top 10 or so should be what I covered today.
Also a fun article: via Physics Arxiv Blog, To How Many Politicians Should Government Be Left? The article looks at the "efficacy" of a government compared to its cabinet size, and makes a rather nifty model of how opinions are formed in small networks. Another interesting bit is that while cabinet size ranged from 5 to 54, not a single government of the nearly 200 surveyed had a cabinet of size 8-- apparently it is common knowledge that that is bad luck, or something.
I also discovered that Jure was smart enough to submit last year's SDM paper to ArXiv, which yielded a citation. That has prompted me to register so I can post other publications.
This is related to a recent pet peeve of mine-- the fact that it's difficult to get conference proceedings. The ACM/Citeseer folks don't always things from workshops and the like that I'm interested in. Most authors have the sense to post their papers on their websites, but I much prefer being able to get a conference all in one place. Of course, professional organizations don't like to do that. I find it hard to believe that they really make money off of conference proceedings, so I can only guess that it has to do with publisher/copyright/legalities rules outside their control. Maybe someday CC/GPL will be able to wrest away some control.
