Upgraded to R 2.15 today and it’s been a bear to rebuild so many packages. If you haven’t yet upgraded you should wait a few days.

If any folks want to test out a new R package to interface with Dropbox, look here: github.com/karthikram/rdr…
bug reports appreciated.

Absolutely love the idea of using live plots with the d3 framework. Could be great for talks/teaching.

I just updated Rtools for Sublime Text. Once approved into package control, it will become a 1 click install. is.gd/OwBgUG

kaythaney Fun fact. Charles Darwin left £50 in his will to create a complete list of *all* plant species (still a work in progress).

FYI: MT @noamross: MultiMarkdown and Pandoc md extensions both support bibtex. MMD only -> LaTeX, Pandoc for any output form.

via Twitter for Mac

Anyone know a way to use bibtex with markdown?

Deck.js usage:

Press g, then slide #, and enter to go to a slide.

Last night I gave an intro to R talk using Deck.js and it worked out great (I think). Almost ready to give up Keynote.

@researchremix @ReaderMeter @recology_ Makes sense. It’s nice that bugs can be directed to one or more individuals.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to researchremix

@ReaderMeter @researchremix @recology_ you might be interested in a upcoming github for writing. scigit.com

@mrgunn Sorry, didn’t mean to be harsh on Mendeley itself (more than manual metadata entry sucks). Longer response in email.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to mrgunn

@carlystrasser @megangarber Somewhat sad that I was expecting to see Amazon HQ in Seattle (or something like that). This is way better.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to carlystrasser

@mrgunn which is my biggest woe with Mendeley (which still struggles with newer ones). Entering metadata sucks.

@jasonpriem Someone should fund the infrastructure for an academic github. Something like Arxiv but academic with no storage limits.

@jasonpriem there are also Calepin and Scriptogram among others that do similar things.

Can someone tell me what the top 5 ecology journals are ranked in terms of (current) impact factor?

@researchremix @cboettig I have a few solutions to that. Too long for twitter…will email.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to researchremix

@researchremix @cboettig Looks nice! I have not incorporated md with knitr but I should since tex is laborious.

@mrgunn PS: Was expecting to run into you at useR last night.

@mrgunn Yeah, sorry, don’t have a better solution. But I use this to check out parking limits beforehand.

@mrgunn if you have a neighborhood in mind, do a virtual walk through and look for street cleaning signs or lack thereof.

@jebyrnes But lately I just send compiled PDFs and ask them to annotate using Acrobat tools if they don’t want the raw source.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to jebyrnes

@jebyrnes Sadly Word docs and I send them sweaved R code so they can copy/paste and run to verify.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to jebyrnes

@carlystrasser That’s what people said about R in 2000s. Now everyone is Rrrrring. Sometimes you need to take away the training wheels.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to carlystrasser

@carlystrasser @jebyrnes I suppose the novelty is that it works with word docs. meh.

via Twitter for Mac

@carlystrasser @jebyrnes Couldn’t people just do that *right now*? If you have a purdy diff tool like @kaleidoscopeapp, you’d be set.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to carlystrasser

@hadleywickham @cboettig Amen. I think this will happen with the new gen of academics. @ethanwhite teaches one such course.
