@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.

Just back from a run. It’s chilly out there! These two know.

@edyong209 There is no such account yet though.

@tpoi @phdpqc fancy topic! research or review paper? where did it go?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tpoi

@peromhc Maybe it’s my timing (I don’t ride bart often) but last few times yeah.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to macmanes

@tpoi extra 0 at the end. That was the problem.

@ethanwhite DNS is still propagating (just worked for me). No rush though. take your time.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to ethanwhite

@ethanwhite Want to do the honors and go first? :)

@phdpqc @naupakaz Looks great indeed! @tpoi, want to host the template gist and we can advertise this.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to phdpqc

@phdpqc @tpoi @naupakaz Believe we’re good to go once DNS propagates. interviews@eebtools.org goes to all of us.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to phdpqc

@phdpqc @tpoi @naupakaz No works correctly locally and on github. We just need eebtools dot org to point correctly.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to phdpqc

@tpoi @naupakaz @phdpqc Just updated that too. Hope it all propagates shortly.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tpoi

@tpoi @naupakaz @phdpqc Done! Just had to create a CNAME file with domain name.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tpoi

@tpoi Sure, but do we want a blog here? Maybe we could introduce the idea and such but more?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tpoi

@naupakaz @tpoi @phdpqc Cost of two beers? No biggie. If this works, then we can figure out what to do next yr, right?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to naupakaz

@tpoi ok. Then we just have to make sure people add both when they submit.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tpoi

@tpoi @naupakaz @phdpqc Stupid twitter parsing links. Grab eebtools dot org?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tpoi

@tpoi shouldn’t your shortbio also appear on your page under who you are? or do we ask people to write both?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tpoi

@naupakaz or this: bit.ly/WfVZX1

We just couldn’t find the domain after creating it.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to naupakaz

@tpoi @naupakaz @phdpqc Awesome! I added the footer to _includes. Does github automatically run Jekyll or we do and it displays _site?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tpoi

@tpoi @naupakaz @phdpqc I use typekit for ropensci and my own stuff but this is their free alternative.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tpoi

@revodavid awesome. I’ve been missing a lot of meetings lately but hope to be more regular.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to revodavid

@revodavid @RevolutionR Good luck David! Hopefully you’ll swing by more BARUG meetups in future.

Some days you’re just exhausted and don’t really care anymore. I feel you, evolution.

Now I have a better sense of the terrain for possible new research topic (based on labs blogging, researchers tweeting etc).

via Tweetbot for Mac

@ethanwhite @tpoi @naupakaz @phdpqc You’ve come a long way Ethan. Hopefully the paper clip training wheels are off by now.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to ethanwhite

Power of @Impactstory and @altmetric really comes together when diving into a new topic. Read blogs, tweets, citations st w/ high prof pub.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@ethanwhite @tpoi @naupakaz @phdpqc You’ll likely be one of the first few interviewees! :)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to ethanwhite

@tpoi @naupakaz @phdpqc y’all have admin. So no need to fork. Just clone and push back to the same.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tpoi

@tpoi @naupakaz @phdpqc Are you familiar enough to set up Jekyll? I’m not but could hack ropensci’s setup if need be.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tpoi

@naupakaz @tpoi @phdpqc Not mine. bit.ly/WfXynD provides placeholder images (of cats) at any size for web dev.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to naupakaz

@tpoi @naupakaz @phdpqc Threw together a template draft:

We’ll just need to Jekyll this so it goes from md to html.

@Protohedgehog To sum up all the advice so far. Academia is the hunger games. Act fast or you’ll be killed.
