@vsbuffalo Not sure yet. I was supposed to be doing a Berkeley one at the same time but that got moved up.
@labroides I do and love it.
@MarkHahnel yo dawg we heard you like figshare so we wrote an article discussing figshare and put in on figshare.
@mrgunn They use js to break it for articles but not news.
@nparmalee I stuck a piece of masking tape on the check engine light. All good!
Science is a big team sport especially with today’s need for interdisciplinary and large-scale experiments. bit.ly/YIUL7H
eviltrout Remembering that a user has read a Twitter direct message is the hardest problem in computer science.
@nparmalee The check engine light on my brain just came on and there is some smoke too. Is that ok?
@zachwill wow, that was painful to read. Two iphones??
Really hate that Nature intentionally breaks @readability when other journals don’t.
ftrain Are you in bed reading this on your phone? Then I ask you: Did you lock the front door? Are you sure? TOTALLY sure? Goodnight.
@srsupp congrats, Dr. Supp!
ooh a Flickr telnet bbs.

@kara_woo er on.
@kara_woo extra credit! Some do! They live in boats (cheaper).
A: east bay.
@wilbanks I loved your piece but don’t want my comment to sit next to Mr. Grumpy pants.
@TrestleJeff Thanks Jeff!
@LaDiii88 Doesn’t really matter if you’re an academic, right? ;)
Affects me in other ways (library/coffee shops being closed).
@LaDiii88 yep, you’re right. Totally forgot. thanks!
@LaDiii88 why is tomorrow a holiday? other than spring break.
A data scientist weighs in on the text mining spat btn scientists and publishers. domain knowledge > shotgun.
If I wanted to learn more about agile development (doesn’t necessarily have to be a software context), what should I read?
“Look, evolution, everyone has trouble staying motivated sometimes.”
@hspter I know. teh sad. Now I’m reluctant to tell GoodReads about awesome books.

@fluby Great to see you yesterday!
@phdpqc I also hope they validate the citations. I said Source code in med… It’s really Source code for med…
Empty united flight FTW.

Great to hang with Kayce and Ang on short notice.
@cboettig hah that would be nice. Mark sent me some to use. Can share with you if you like.
@researchremix On the bonus side, fewer reviews to write.
researchremix “Sorry, I only review for open access venues.” So powerful, so easy to say.
@jasonpriem You finally put web-native in print! Now I can cite it!
@_Kate_Crosby_ That warrants a huzzah!
@covert looks great! Love flipboard 2.0!
@ATredennick yes 2 is plenty.
My 90 yr old landlord just got immortalized in a xkcd. Stoked to tell him (and also explain what xkcd is).
@Stephen_Curry I use Penultimate. Hard to write on any app without feeling like you’re using a crayon.
@gingi0 True. But Dragon for ios is free. Give that a go.
‘Impossible Light’, trailer for the Bay Bridge light project. Looks fantastic!
@kara_woo Alas no, I bailed on this trip. Another time!
@gingi0 I’ve only tried Dragon and it worked really well even on the first try.
Quite awesome to see a citizen science project on kickstarter. Yellowstone Wolf project: kck.st/Zovgod
@nparmalee You live above the Federal reserve?
@kara_woo hmm. Not sure how well that would be represented in peer-reviewed literature. Twitter poll might be better.
@kara_woo scholarly articles on tattoo regret?
kornelski They say git gets easier once you get the basic idea that branches are homeomorphic endofunctors mapping submanifolds of a Hilbert space.
@bendmorris ugh. /rolls eyes. I hate migrating.
Spring break = totally free cluster = massive embarrassingly parallel jobs. #rstats
@jess_carilli command + alt + 8. Did that do it?
@bendmorris First I’ve heard of this. I hope Oracle is not planning to kill off MySQL.
@github Great video, except GitHub issues are not distributed. If GitHub is down, so are issues.
@nparmalee warm day here. But on the downside allergy season is on.
@carlystrasser The 4th (missing panel). A robot will be by to keep you company shortly.
@carlystrasser Super incomplete and unlikely to help a beginner without any examples at all.
@jess_carilli awesome, welcome back!
@jess_carilli Which country are you moving to? Back here?
@TheAtavism I’m so jealous.
@hspter Yeah I hope not either.
@jasonpriem ImpactStory sf. Just sayin.
@eperlste I’m an east bay denizen too. Happy hour when you get here!
@eperlste Awesome! welcome! Are you planning to live in the city or the south bay?
@vijay_ivaturi Thanks Vijay! will check it out.
@zentree exactly right on both. Not sure if there is a viable free alternative.
Will Google Scholar be next on the chopping block?
@phylorich haha. There are some folks. e.g. the people who work with revolution analytics, business use of R.
@phylorich yep. That’s a well recognized problem. Academics are not rewarded to be programmers, and prog can get better comp in industry.
@phylorich and now it pays close to industry over a shorter term. Candidate does not have to be a postdoc.
@phylorich excellent points, Rich! That’s exactly what’s happening here. Position was initially a postdoc at postdoc salary. 1/2
@NewsCrier Please don’t mention me. Thanks.
wow GitHub is currently under a ddos attack. bit.ly/ZdXd5F
Site seems fine to me.
@noamross having trouble with the same today. see earlier tweets.
@xieyihui Fantastic! Thanks Yihui!
@nparmalee They asked if I wanted a real living wage and I was like, nah, it’s cool. Maybe more hours, less appreciation? glad they said ok.
Academia is eating its young.
ᔥ hacker news.
@nparmalee I just followed you a little while ago so I haven’t scrolled back.
@nparmalee or roast them for extra flavor. I missed the earlier context.
Trying to write a lecture in beamer (yes I know, shoot me) with R, knitr, and pandoc. Why does markdown oversize ggplot figs so horribly?
@ctitusbrown Yes. Add a regexp filter on your Twitter client.
nparmalee Goddammit Science, pay me real money, you fucking bastard.
If you feel the need to torture your local parking enforcement officer.
@LizNeeley so jealous you already bought the new Nirvana cd!
@gvwilson there is no subscript in markdown. Just use the HTML tag.
That sinking feeling when the server admin tells you they accidentally nuked 400 gigs of your data. But hey, tape drives! and not just me.
@distribecology he is also a popular Bay Area recycling company.
@MarkHahnel until you guys do a Harlem Shake I am not going to believe that you’re on a real “retreat”.
@polesasunder yes! Two people just told me. I didn’t write the article though.
Still, I wish I pulled this off when I was 5.
@ReaderMeter But yes, I’ll see you Monday.
@ReaderMeter Looks fantastic! hadn’t seen it. Last year we had a GSoc interested in this but never came through.
@ReaderMeter Hey will you be at the OKFN thing on Monday?

gvwilson I am looking for a student to do a cool Google Summer of Code project this year. Plz IM for details w/ link to your home page/site.
@duffy_ma Can’t believe your baby doesn’t have a crawling desk yet.
@ficaryl Academia. You have two cows with just enough food. Both cows hire a dozen other cows w/ grand promises of future pasture.
@ficaryl The French and Aussie corporations are my favorites.
@mrgunn 2-4 pm, 2063 VLSB
Live in Berkeley? Want to learn about #ggplot2? I’m giving a 2 hour demo/lecture in VLSB/IB on April 9th.
@JacquelynGill Twice today (over email) I got ma’am. Guessing they couldn’t figure it out with ethnic sounding name.
@researchremix I use it as a catch-all for misc. things i find on the web. But for plain text notes, nothing beats simple-note.
@researchremix Why not Evernote? That’s the only focus of the company and they do it really well.
@msanclem bummed I didn’t buy much gear this year. I’ll be getting a :( dividend.
Berkeley stats nerds, there’s a Stan talk this Friday:
A great t-shirt for my fellow academics.
@brookeborel Didn’t ancient Egyptians do exactly that? Drink low alcohol beer because it was safer than water?
@covert hat tip. Not all that different from via.
@mfenner Awesome work Martin!
@covert hah, I didn’t realize she was using it. Idea came from someone else. I regularly use ↬ and ᔥ
