Overscripted Web: Mozilla Data Analysis Challenge

overscripted back

The Systems Research Group at Mozilla have created and open sourced a dataset of publicly available information that was collected by a November 2017 Web crawl. We want to empower the community to explore the unseen or otherwise not obvious series of JavaScript execution events that are triggered once a user visits a webpage, and all the first- and third-party events that are set in motion when people retrieve content.

This is an exploratory data analysis challenge. Mozilla would like to encourage participants to think outside the proverbial box, get creative, get under the surface. We want participants to analyze the data and come up with exciting new observations, patterns, research findings fitting into one of the following three categories:

1. Tracking and Privacy

2. Web Technologies and the Shape of the Modern Web

3. Equality, Neutrality, and Law

The type of insights that we are looking for are illustrated in this blog post. You can find the data set and everything you need to get started here. Some example analyses to help you get inspired are also included.
