@snacktavish I once got one that said “seems like a nice guy. honestly I never really came to section. This is my second time”
@labroides Now I feel guilty not working. :(
Someday in the future I hope to find out what coreaudiod does with all of my cpu from time to time.
@bendmorris right, that’s what I mean. It’s very unfortunate that a best practices paper has to be so discouraging.
@bendmorris If it does nothing to advance one’s career (or offer other rewards), time spent on these = career suicide. What do you suggest?
Open science software is great but don’t waste time on it. Not much funding, sustainability, or career advancement. marker.to/UoxQwV
Nice article: Ten Simple Rules for the Open Development of Scientific Software
ploscompbiol.org/article/info:d… I struggle with 10 in particular.
@arielwaldman ooh. an open science tumblr. I don’t follow tumblr but this might be the one to get me on board.
@brookeborel Looks like an eyeless pig with a forked tongue from the thumbnail. :)

@edyong209 I went through an insomnia phase last year. I don’t envy you.
Curling up with Python Scripting for Computational Sciences. Great holiday read if you’ve been holding out for something good.
New startup idea: Emaul. Like email but delivered by an impatient lion so it mauls recipients for not responding in a timely manner.
Going to gracefully address obnoxious reviewer #2’s comments today.
@zachwill I had this exact problem when I shared my account with my sis back in the day. Eventually just bought her an account.
@se_hampton This is why I love reading through papers in Ecology from the 1920/30s.
@tpoi It’s a non-profit, runs bootcamps all over, volunteer driven. All teaching material is os.
@tpoi They teach basic software skills to scientists. I just signed on as an instructor.
@geoffjentry yes, your twitteR package still works.
@kara_woo that’s what happens when you reply before clicking on the link.
@kara_woo So much better than a Christmas birthday.
erikfrey free idea: expand the Pew Research Center to also study lasers.
@medriscoll hopefully before the insanely long and utterly pointless legal disclaimer.
@phylogenomics That place was always closed whenever I stopped by. Finally managed to go there once before I left Davis.
@hylopsar yep. Helps to get whois protection (fills it with junk info).
A hat tip to all the folks running in the Berkeley hills right now. Also, you people are insane.
Something less ominous on the (wrong) calendar this evening. pic.twitter.com/SiflX75h
@JasonStoddard except their markup on everything is at least 2x. Fast shipping is the least they could do.
JeanGreasy My Mayan friends, Ixazaluoh and Xpiayoc are always flaking on dates, so I kinda knew this would happen. Typical.
Successfully cloned er “checked out” a svn repo and made my first commit without borking everything.
@msanclem Someone just reminded me that this is the exact plot of Kindergarden Cop.
@ctitusbrown I’d actually prefer that. ;)
@tomjwebb A good reason why I maintain two twitter accounts. One day I fear I will post to the wrong one.
@CameronNeylon I don’t envy you. That’s a lot of time spent at airports (and consuming bad airport food).
I’m out of coffee and someone stole my NY times. uh, well played, Mayan overlords.
@tomjwebb big data. I’ll write a longer comment on your blog post.
@markus_eichhorn All signs of wrapping up a great meeting!
@yoavram mazel tov!
Slowly warming up to the new @PLOS design.
@hmason sf dominated as expected. :P
@MiriamGoldste I hear you. and you’re totally right about gender ratio in alt-sci. Just look at compass online.
@mrgunn Never noticed this until now (unless it’s a new feature). Swipe is great.
@thrawny thanks, I’m nervous but only one way to test the waters.
gvwilson OH at Mozilla: “Why do you keep trying to make code better? It was working just fine!”
@sjGoring That’s what you get for choosing the Sudanese journal of paleoecology. Oh god I am terrible at this. Better stick w/ day job.
eperlste If you can’t share your unpublished data for fear of being scooped, you might consider working on something else.
@hylopsar Yes, you can cross list. The option is in your profile. Let me know if it doesn’t work.
Not enjoying the new @PLOS design as much as the old one. Might just take some getting used to.
@kara_woo Thanks Kara! This is really helpful.
Being forced to use SVN for a project. I don’t know SVN at all. Anyone recommend a free osx svn gui?
There is simply no way to avoid getting Ripleyed. #rstats
@richardcave Rather cryptic tweet.
@gvwilson It gets better :)
Nice first gist!
@distribecology Kanye wrote a song about this once.
@sjGoring I’m on it. But there’s not much going on there.
@Protohedgehog But that sentiment is pervasive throughout the academic community though.
@openfisheries I don’t know what paper he’s referring to either.
@labroides Not on the paper. I just wrote the R package for it.
Want to play around with global FAO fisheries landing data, compare countries and species? Try out our new R package. github.com/ropensci/rfish…
@gvwilson not at all. I’m generating an example for you. hang on.
@gvwilson In R grep for doi, save into list, push list through rAltmetric or rImpactStory which will return citations for each one.
@shaenasaurus me too. But we’re just around the corner and longer days aren’t far away.
Oy vey MT “@LSU_FISH: Going through CVs of candidates for this job makes me happy I have one already.
@labroides Pass on my birthday wishes to Pi!
@labroides and hugs for my friends too.
@mrgunn sad that it was also the first thing that caught my eye.
Staying off of twitter for the rest of the day to get some serious science done. If you see me around, yell at me.
@sjGoring totally. In fact, that’s my next tweet!
@sjGoring That’s not very encouraging (at least to me).
@sjGoring We might have data of interest to you at Cal. I’ll try to get you early access to the api when it comes online.
ethanwhite Why do I feel like we’re spending more time worrying about “credit” these days than focusing on just doing the most awesome science we can?
@ficaryl iAnimal? Did Apple sponsor this event?
@eswillwalker Thanks Ellen! That makes sense. Looks like it never ends!
If you’re an senior assistant prof, associate prof. or above, who writes your rec letters? Your peers?
@labroides ah yes.
@mfenner seems along the lines of my last blog post. math exists via mathjax. md anchors serve as links (see in your own doc).
@elife_sciences wow, journal looks fantastic! Finally, a journal page that doesn’t look like it’s from 1995. Love the decision letter/resp
@sandramchung Have you guys considered joining another ecological society?
eperlste The more I learn about overhead and indirect costs, the more Academia reveals itself to be Industry in disguise.
@researchremix haha. We have way too many. Something going on two to three times a week.
@CameronNeylon It is indeed fantastic. I’ve been recommending it to new open science api developers.
@noahWG No servers are just busy with the entire world desperate for it. Try again in a few.
@ESA_Prez2013 looking forward to it!
@Impactstory Does Heroku rely on AWS as its backend?
@figshare iOS app (doesn’t even have to be native) would be rad too. Share data on the go, copy doi to clipboard. boom.
@melissaterras was it a pre-shortened URL? Twitter doesn’t like that (mostly to prevent spam/virus links).
swcarpentry Would you like us to run a two-day boot camp somewhere in 2013? Please get in touch (and please retweet). firstname.lastname@example.org
@hylopsar I’d create a package_name.Rd and add a note in there. Methods are based on Bag, D. 2010. Doesn’t have to be *everywhere*.
@abigailamey Definitely coal. and don’t even bother splurging on ‘clean’ coal.
@distribecology You could SEO the crap out of your blog and get tons of hits. But it’s all about the attracting right audience.
@brembs great, thanks for posting!
@brembs nice! What is the workshop format? Hands on? How long?
@ibartomeus I hear ya. Doing that right now and need to rewrite it in Rcpp but feels too daunting.
