@jess_carilli wait. It’s #3 always tim tam slam?
@CMastication We’ve had this conv before!
him: It doesn’t work.
me: what? what? give me a reproducible example kid.
@distribecology Hey Ted your twitter account got hacked.
@CMastication I’m teaching my 12 yr old nephew. He catches on fast.
@ekansa That was my day yesterday.
@ficaryl Thank you. It was really really ‘heartbreaking’.
@ficaryl oh that’s a sad story. She um … ok. nevermind ;)
@ficaryl So glad I’m not on FB. *shudder*
@kj_gilbert Someday when we meet I should tell you my botfly story.
@jess_carilli YEP! been there!
@tjvision Glam rag! hah!
@sandramchung So jealous.
@recology_ Because they charge watch parties $100 to cover streaming costs. Bummer a sf one never came through.
@kara_woo What is lake Baikal’s favorite pizza topping?
@kara_woo When is lake Baikal’s birthday?
@Drew_Lab Thanks man, I appreciate the support.
@ctitusbrown Fantastic post re moz web making. My thoughts on this are quite similar and I’m glad to see a push to making these reality.
@punkish Answer = B)
with link this time: bit.ly/WyQ6V4
↬ to @mbeisen for previous tweet.
Success w/o glamour pubs. Nice post using @jasonpriem’s methods and Entrez to figure out that only 5.7% of bioinfo pdocs have glamour pubs.
Up until today I enjoyed the game of tracking down supplemental info through a maze of links. Now @figshare ruined all the fun. Thx a lot.
sandramchung Learning to use R to handle data is like learning to file a FOIA request - suddenly filled with sensation of ridiculous power
More job applications this am. Doing my best to avoid being sent to the glue factory.
@cboettig Really nice, congrats!
@pathogenomenick *I need to get shit done*
@kj_gilbert post a reproducible example somewhere like gist.
@punkish no wonder you weren’t at the open data meetup!
@JacquelynGill That’s exactly what bump does for ios. Don’t know if its available for other platforms.
@CameronNeylon ok done.
@nmatasci On my twitter stream you are! All your projects sound exciting!
@sjGoring got it, just making sure other smart people are as clumsy as I am.
@sjGoring you just followed me again?
@eperstle Nice job with the interview!
@sjGoring Woke up this am and said no twitter. Straight to writing. two conf calls and coffee and I’m still here in my pjs.
@mrgunn Post that advice on a blog somewhere. More of us could benefit from it.
@IanMulvany It is. except it breaks all backward compatibility which will suck for a while.
@peromhc It’s a hr thing.
@labroides totally ok. But give then an out if they can’t do it for some reason.
Everyone has big data problems these days.
@CameronNeylon yep! That would be great.
@jess_carilli If you submit the *perfect* proposal, you *may* get funded. There is no room for even the tiniest mistake. walk the tightrope.
@recology_ and phylopic came to mind when I wrote that answer. In that example I downloaded images first. Could come from a fn call instead.
@recology_ Not yet. Still yours if you want it. I just began exploring it before the holidays.
@recology_ API is coming online soon. I have an early draft somewhere.
@MiriamGoldste wow, just read all the posts on dsn. Good luck Miriam! Don’t be a stranger.
@jasonpriem But glad you’re power supply works. Been there before so I know the sinking feeling.
@jasonpriem Saw thumbnail before tweet. First thought: My god that’s a huge proposal. Stamped with sealing wax too! official!
arlinpeebles Sorry guys, I better call it a night. I have to be on the Internet first thing in the morning.
@distribecology I enjoyed it! Ira Glass guilted me into getting it to Berkeley early on.
@elikint favorite tweet with link then save URL as PDF and save it to Dropbox folder named twitter favorites. Etc.
@elikint browse the recipes. Automates most things in my life. If >70% chance of rain tomorrow leave rain jacket by keys tonight (text).
@CjBayesian Just to play devils advocate. They aren’t all *that* bad.
@distribecology if you look closely (bottom right), it says Ted Hart was here.
Hey scientists using Scribd to host pre-prints. Worst idea ever. nightmarish pay wall. Can’t print, can’t save. Tip: link directly to PDF.
@distribecology must be my spirit tree.
@recology_ cool! Hope it goes well.
@recology_ awesome! congrats and have fun. Planning to build anything for ropensci while there?
@vijay_ivaturi That sounds way better. We don’t even get official time off.
mbeisen thing that kills me most about F’d up funding situation is that there are so many amazing young scientists out there we are letting down
yoyoha We never play good cop, bad cop with our kids. It’s more like annoyed cop, tired cop.
Just got my w2 for 2012. Gross income might as well say “1 bag of jumbo peanuts”. How other postdocs have kids is one big mystery to me.
@recology_ /sad face. @eebtools may still have more new stuff for you. stay tuned.
@ethanwhite All sounds promising but will have to wait till we see when the first ones come out.
@carlystrasser wait, I don’t remember tweeting that. I know I’m losing my mind but
@msanclem awesome. He just needs a monocle and a hat.
@msanclem Is he your civilized dog?
@ctitusbrown absolutely nothing wrong with the guide. Just making fun of the dated term netiquette. flash back to mid 90s.
Looks like honey badger Randall may have some competition. youtube.com/watch?v=6Jz0Jc…
@bioSimonUoB @Protohedgehog and things in the UK move faster too. For us the norm is 5-6 years.
@bioSimonUoB @Protohedgehog Understand. UK is different. We were encourage to pub first and not write a long diss then cut that down for pub
@ctitusbrown netiquette?? /waves hello to 1995.
@Protohedgehog @bioSimonUoB Just publish cos you need to do it anyway. My diss was just papers stapled together. Less work for the committee
@bearloga No. I do that locally once and save the credentials in a .rda file. Works until I revoke the keys (which I rarely do).
@thrawny yes. nobody uses sourceforge anymore. ghost town. Less likely to attract contributions.
@bearloga I’ve been using it since my dumb phone days. Back then DMs came as texts. I’d go for long runs and see sim updates ;)
@tpoi if you tell me that it was from my eebtools blurb, then I think the site has already worked! ;)
@bearloga or use twitteR and send yourself a DM at any point mid-way.
@cjlortie I was one of the first!
@msanclem Yeah, you can control any application on my mac. So it goes beyond gdoc (which is good for that single purpose).
Just tried it with a collaborator. We were troubleshooting the same piece of code in real time. No more “go to line 14”.
WOW! Powwow is absolutely fantastic for collaborative screen sharing between macs. 2 cursors and both can type. bit.ly/10LxIXy
@tpoi I can’t live without it. Far too many recipes run my life.
wilbanks The point of open access is to convert scholarly knowledge into a true public good. Not just to remove its cost through technology.
@labroides Actually that’s a brilliant idea never to ever get mentioned. Just use it to read and favorite.
@noamross Sent you my copy.
Seeing ‘big data’ in a tweet is like walking into a store playing Gotye loudly over the speakers.
@ctitusbrown I can’t complain because I also have Twitter open.
@revodavid the top voted comment is how can we move these folks elsewhere, we just need their main attractions ;)
@jasonpriem quickly registers domain. ImpactStory: We write impactful college essays for your ivy league application. starting at $99.
@recology_ gist that!
@recology_ you’re not crazy. did it disappear? I haven’t used it in a while.
@GrunerDaniel indeed. Nice to see you more on Twitter though. Sorry didn’t get to catch up at esa.
I really want to watch the new BBC Africa series. Anywhere online I can stream it?
@GrunerDaniel You need to start a blog, Dan. The Gruner log. or something. I’d totally read it.
@jebyrnes Nice. Can you differentiate tweets from ecolog? Is that bit ly link tied to someone’s account?
@drnickisaac Please post a new tweet when that permanent position is announced.
All the conference spam I get has pegged me as an in-demand algae expert in China. Other ecologists get the same or diff kinds?
@sjGoring too much?
blogging tips: Write post. Tell everyone who disagrees that they misunderstood. Update post as req. Add emoticons to diff awkwardness.
@BrunaLab looks really nice. I like it.
@ethanwhite Totally understand.
statsy people, if there is no code there is no paper. I simply don’t know what you did.
@rmounce indeed :)
@peromhc ugh. Onwards!
@rmounce love it too but impact factor?? Doesn’t help folks on the job market.
@TheAtavism anyway, the point is don’t lose hope. Things work out. Keep looking.
@TheAtavism Was complaining the night before. And the next afternoon again because I had too many to choose from. Luck is weird sometimes.
@TheAtavism Keep your chin up. First time around nothing worked out and then one fine morning I was offered 3 postdocs in the same morning.
@jasonpriem I just snorted my drink. Well played, sir.
mbeisen what is this journal “Preparation” that everyone’s most interesting new work seems to be in?
