@ethanwhite Crazy timing. Got your issue response right after that tweet! Will look through your detailed response first…

@ethanwhite I haven’t used wxPython but I am trying to get the voodoo figured out this week (and I’ll update the github issue once I do).

@carlystrasser Saw that. Ended up embracing my minimalism and not getting one (although I still could).

@jonesor meet my friend @carlystrasser. She’ll be visiting Hal’s group in Rostock next week.

@DavidJohnGibson Isn’t the original the same as the rest of the printed copies. Maybe they should have just asked for 11 copies?

@jebyrnes @se_hampton You walking through the hallway is me checking twitter. Several new collabs this year via twitter.

noamross Just saw a forest ecology paper from the 70s that offered “card punching instructions and a FORTRAN program” for anyone to use.

@duffy_ma Looks rather elegant for something put together by an ecologist! I’d have done it with pvc, duct tape, and some cable tiles.

@recology_ I know people who do this regularly and they record each person locally, then mix later. Can give you tech details if interested.

via TweetDeck in reply to sckottie

@recology_ Not a criticism but wondering why this needs to be video? Seems to me like the interviews are better suited for Podcast form.

via TweetDeck in reply to sckottie

@hadleywickham Yup. Can’t figure it out so I’m going to ignore it for the time being (several more weeks before it would be ready for CRAN).

via TweetDeck in reply to hadleywickham

@distribecology remember when people didn’t have to worry about using hashtags? There’s a place where that’s a reality. I’ve been there.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to emhrt_

@JacquelynGill That would be cool. I’d love to see it (schedule permitting). This would be a first!

via TweetDeck in reply to JacquelynGill

@JacquelynGill I’ve some of talks using Evo. Speaker on one panel, video on another, and attendees were visible too. Try it locally first.

via TweetDeck in reply to JacquelynGill

@JacquelynGill An alternate option where I’ve seen academics share a talk + video with multiple people is this: evo.caltech.edu

@BrunaLab What format is the data currently in?

via TweetDeck in reply to BrunaLab

@hadleywickham If you have any advice/thoughts on this (stackoverflow.com/questions/1023…), I would greatly appreciate it.

via TweetDeck

@jebyrnes @JacquelynGill @MCrucifix Sounds like a great idea to make this a community effort. We @rOpenSci can help out.

via TweetDeck in reply to jebyrnes

@distribecology @jebyrnes Oh good god. Just realized I have been part of the movement long before hash tags were even born.

@distribecology We both seem to be doing the same thing. Except my cup of coffee is empty. TIme to fix that.

@rOpenSci bummer. Should we contact someone?

via TweetDeck in reply to rOpenSci

@carlystrasser @rOpenSci Ooh. Haven’t seen the workshops yet. Do I have to register first to see the list?

via TweetDeck in reply to carlystrasser

@ucfagls @JacquelynGill That’s what I did! But you need the luxury of time to do it. Steep learning curve, incredible payoff.

via TweetDeck in reply to ucfagls

@JacquelynGill @duffy_ma wow! I scan the ecolog digest and thought it was a fairly harmless thread. Just now reading what it devolved into.

via TweetDeck in reply to JacquelynGill

@JacquelynGill *Exactly* what I did. For my last chapter I was using R and SAS (just to be safe). Took off the training wheels soon after.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to JacquelynGill

@JacquelynGill Totally understand. Thesis deadline first. Messing around with cool things in R later.

:)

via TweetDeck in reply to JacquelynGill

@JacquelynGill phew. Do the figures in R! You can always recreate them anytime.

Tweeps who use a mac: What client do you use to keep up with the flood of tweets? Tweet Deck seems like it should work but is deeply flawed.
