So last Friday I submitted my progress report and literature review for my project. I'm running a little behind my originally proposed schedule, but I allowed for delays so I feel confident this will not impact my project.
I met with my supervisor on Monday, and he was pleased with my report and some of the sources I've found.
Over the coming weeks I will now start working on designing a tool for analysing online social networks. Hopefully I will be able to complete a fair amount of work before the beginning of semester 2, to reduce the pressure closer to the treatise submission date.
