@sandramchung That’s an age old trick! A great way to get someone to contribute.
Banyan - a GitHub for science. Looks a lot like GitHub itself.
@carlystrasser are you one of the cool kids?
@tomjwebb The registration fees are also quite insane.
Reproducibility and reciprocity
David_Hillis Congrats to Marc Feldman, Joan Strassmann, Sally Otto, Brian Charlesworth, Ian Baldwin & Nancy Knowlton on election to NAS! Go Evol!
karmel_a GithubPages + Jekyll = My dissertation will be televised, internet style. Amazing how easy+pretty versus when I started web-devel 7 yrs ago!
@hspter agreed. They are all weird. I can’t do coffee without sugar.
@eddelbuettel is there a Rcpp book in the works?
@kaythaney Congrats! Looking forward to hearing more.
@labroides you will be, my friend.
That comma was really important.
@labroides you will be my friend.
@labroides and we covered three centuries of environmental history in one evening.
@labroides it was. I felt like a fish out of water taking about my research.
Everyone at the party is a well known author and dropped off copies of their books at my house today. #youngpersonfail.
Went to a birthday party for my 90 year old landlord and his octogenarian friends. Tried to teach them flip cup and failed. 1/2
@zentree No idea. Took me the longest time to figure out after becoming a mac user.
I’ve reached the point where there are no more easy keybindings for my text editor.
⌥ + ⌃ + ⇧ + 5 + A + Z + rub belly clockwise.
A call to share code in the astrophysics community. 87% don’t.
@IanMulvany Looking forward to that day.
Friday night: A false sense of excitement that the weekend is coming up when in fact both days will be no different than any other.
ryneches I think it should be a law that if you are a restaurant in an airport, you cannot put local time restrictions on “breakfast.”
@hspter haha yes. I thought I was crazy.
@adaptive_plant I also like iAwriter on a mac. But mostly write in ST2 with the markdown focus package.
@Cmdr_Hadfield Looks like a snapping turtle!
@ethanwhite Right now it feels like DATA ALL THE THINGS!
In case there weren’t enough web based markdown editors, here’s one more: bit.ly/181QwIy
“Five years on, my job hangs by a thread, my future somewhat questionable” I’m a scientist, and that’s why I drink
@tomjwebb I’m a moleskine addict and have sources here. If you’re really in need of a particular kind, I can get it for you.
@skmorgane Congrats! This is awesome.
Ira Glass on the secret of success (for creative work but also applies elsewhere) bit.ly/YX3EYJ
@doc_becca I hope the kid submitted the paper as a scratch off. A+
@vijay_ivaturi Awesome! Are you teaching, helping, organizing or attending?
@noamross No but you can ref lines in the issues (just need to change .md ext to something else). Issues aren’t available offline anyway.
@zachwill haha, love it.
@noamross Yes afaik (weird, I know). I wish it were everywhere.
@noamross Purely on GitHub. It’s sort of their value added service on top of a free platform. It’s good but makes git less decentralized.
@noamross It either remains in issues or on top of a commit.
@tmkeesey why not just clone? Forking serves the purpose of having one’s own copy to build upon, or to contribute back.
@mfenner 1K barely covers any salary. There are no material costs involved in building something like this unlike expt work.
@ekansa thorn on my side too. Happy to throw in some % of my grant into a collective pot to fix this.
SteveMartinToGo I believe it was Socrates who said, “When someone favorites your Tweet the nanosecond you send it, they are a bot.”
@gingi0 There are still people around who use CVS? o_O
@thePeerJ That’s awesome because I’m a huge fan/user of SO. The system forces people to articulate comments better. I’ve felt that myself.
@shaenasaurus Not in a cv for a traditional academic job though.
@shaenasaurus If it’s relevant to the job. I’m sitting through a machine learning class now. Would mention it if necessary.
@recology_ What do you think of the article?
@sjGoring hah I hate that too. I never use twitter via the browser but when I do, I have to start at a user page. Glad it’s not just me.
@cboettig which one broke? fishbase?
@DrLabRatOry I nodded without even reading the article. I did bookmark it for later though. /sad
@recology_ R kernel hacking.
@figshare Mac uploader bug. Cannot tab from username field to password field in login screen.
@flimsin Thanks for putting that list together! We can’t add directly to it, can we?
schuyler OH: “I think Mad Men is about to hit UNIX timestamp zero.”
@MarkHahnel excited to see you there too. :)
Just saw the participant list for #scifoo. Star struck would be a huge understatement.
Notes from Nature looks fantastic! Transcribe labels from museums in my building!
@GrunerDaniel First student finishing? Congrats!
Three Years of Sun in Three Minutes
@hspter The thumbnail just has ING. I was, like, they, like, really save their money, and stuff.
@hylopsar You realize that you shouldn’t keep your sole copy of *anything* on a cloud hosted platform, right? esp one your not paying for.
@arbesman They’ve been doing this for some time (at least a year). Obviously not everywhere but major locations.
@msanclem Don’t blame you.
@GrunerDaniel I appreciate you getting back to me so quickly. Feel free to contact w/ further Qs.
<long useless confidentiality notice>
@msanclem Wanna trade? We got 85F weather here.
Want: A option to favorite emails (like Twitter) in lieu of acknowledgement.
I’d be so thankful not to have “sounds good” emails anymore.
@kara_woo Sorry. Classes are actually $1.75 discounted from $25. Excel error.
@dfflanders hear hear.
Acknowledgements: unhelpful comments from one obnoxious anonymous reviewer made me question my life and journal choices. Supported by NSFDEB
@papersapp I’m almost ready to switch over but you are missing one key feature. auto-bibtex export (available in Mendeley). In the works?
Spreadsheets, Retractions, and Bias bit.ly/XYF12N
A former UCL postdoc captures the atmosphere of the British museum in this delightful mix.
So perfect for writing.
Open Access at Berkeley.
@Dr_Bik It’s already picnic day? Damn time sure flies.
@sjGoring feel better dude. Sending good mojo your way.
If you’re feeling stressed/burnt out from this week, grab a drink and watch Bob Ross paint some happy trees.
@hspter or a drink.
@adaptive_plant So far Papers is winning. It seems to match papers really well, even arXiv.
@revodavid Thanks David. I love that dog and animal videos are taking up more screen space than code (given the weeks’ mood).
@victoriastodden Looks like we need more such SNAFUs before people really start paying attention to the reproducibility problem.
@adaptive_plant Trying both out for a month to see which one to go with. Zotero desktop does not feel intuitive (yet).
@Impactstory I’m rooting for you kids.
@David_Dobbs I move the rest which is worth the extra trouble because I don’t end up with tax returns and other forms in my library.
@David_Dobbs Regular expressions to match the use of doi or journal specific patterns. Some use the word “full”. Catches ~95%.
@David_Dobbs I use Hazel heavily. It moves pdfs to watch folders from anywhere if it looks like an academic PDF.
@David_Dobbs Looks like second option works too!
@David_Dobbs Thanks David! First Q was more important.
Papersapp Q. Can it automatically monitor a folder and grab PDFs that show up? Can it organize PDFs and delete originals (like iTunes)?
The Huffington Post cannot make headline fonts any bigger. It’s that kind of morning.
@soozaphone I read it. wow, just wow. I need another lie down.
@Protohedgehog means altmetrics. ALM specifically refers to article level metrics.
@jhamrick It is. I just want this all to end.
@hspter me too. :(
@jhamrick What a shit week overall. I hate it.
@recology_ I got access denied on both links. So what is the awesome part?
I really hope I live to be age XX.
@phylorich Yep. I will gladly spend a bazillion hours doing this after you accept my god damned paper. For now just take the PDF.
@tomjwebb me too :) That’s why I zoom in on the text on my laptop/tablet.
@tomjwebb Same thing with double spaced lines. I don’t really need it anymore. I’m going to annotate the PDF.
@katejjeffery Love it. Brilliant.
# THE FIGURES AND PUT THE LEGENDS BESIDE THEM, SO THAT I DON’T HAVE TO KEEP SCROLLING BACK AND FORTH THROUGH THE PDF
Meter maids everywhere just suck.
@distribecology super easy. just ask.
@hspter Does Etsy have an SF office? Are they looking for an ecologist/data/stats nerd who also likes animals?
@hspter I bet everyone at Etsy gets their choice of office animal companion. /jealous.
@sjGoring Not to worry Simon. The one for academia is a drab gray page with “best viewed in Netscape 4.0” at the bottom.
twoeightnine Beginning to think that getting your news a day later on a piece of paper really was the way to go.
Some perks of working in industry. bit.ly/XICmYB
@xieyihui That’s a long dash (also known as EM dash).
@BrunaLab So you don’t do invited talks further north? ;)
@weiwei82 Congrats YiWei & Wilmers lab!
