@ethanwhite @carlystrasser @rOpenSci SO model is great. It has many applications in academia (rating reviewers, reviews, metadata).

Just a reminder. If you tweeted during ESA 2012, please help us out by filling out this super short survey. surveymonkey.com/s/esatweets

@jasonpriem I switched @rOpenSci to Bootstrap a few weeks ago too. I tried a dozen or more responsive frameworks before settling.

Did you attend ESA2012 or tweet with the hashtag? If so please answer a short survey. surveymonkey.com/s/esatweets cc/@ESA_org Please RT.
