@doc_becca I hope the kid submitted the paper as a scratch off. A+

@tpoi @ctitusbrown Came to Berkeley early on but missed the chance. Been dying to see it.

phylogenomics WTF - I hate how publication system completely screws up any figure w/ embedded text by conversion to TIFF plosone.org/article/info%3…

@noamross @cboettig Have to explicitly push those.
git push origin refs/notes/*

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to noamross

@noamross @cboettig I just scrolled down to “Sharing Notes” here bit.ly/17lh32i and realized you can’t cleanly push it.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to noamross

@noamross @cboettig So in a way those comments we talked about are actually in the repo?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to noamross

@vijay_ivaturi Awesome! Are you teaching, helping, organizing or attending?

Some of my Twitter outrage is best captured by this → i.imgur.com/VTHcWsA.jpg@zachwill

@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.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to noamross

@noamross Yes afaik (weird, I know). I wish it were everywhere.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to noamross

@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.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to noamross

@noamross It either remains in issues or on top of a commit.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to noamross

@noamross b) Click on any commit (like this: bit.ly/YWrHag) and then hover over line numbers to add a comment.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to noamross

@noamross a) Reference line numbers by appending to URL like so: bit.ly/ZLmcyl

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to noamross

@recology_ @cboettig @thePeerJ It’s a Github thing. Markdown is rendered automatically. So you can ref lines. So add *any other* extension.

@tmkeesey why not just clone? Forking serves the purpose of having one’s own copy to build upon, or to contribute back.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tmkeesey

@mfenner Have you seen DraftIn? bit.ly/Z0hisD
✔ markdown
✔ VC (although not transparent)
✔ collaboration
✔ diffs
✔ not geeky.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mfenner

@mfenner 1K barely covers any salary. There are no material costs involved in building something like this unlike expt work.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mfenner

@mfenner @recology_ @tmkeesey Agreed 100% Happy to build one but not without funding. markx was a prototype of the idea.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mfenner

@recology_ @tmkeesey Issues are usually fine. Analogous to a std. review. People rarely edit your ms directly but that’s what forks do.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to sckottie

@recology_ @tmkeesey Mine had two pull requests with edits from random people which were actually great.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to sckottie

@tmkeesey @recology_ No forking needed. Just post comments and feedback as issues. See bit.ly/UvWgpg

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tmkeesey

@recology_ @thePeerJ You can’t do that with Github for plain text. Only code. So markdown etc doesn’t work.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to sckottie

@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

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to gingi0

@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.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to thePeerJ

@thePeerJ @hylopsar Sounds like you borrowed many ideas from StackOverflow

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to thePeerJ

@shaenasaurus Not in a cv for a traditional academic job though.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to shaenasaurus

@shaenasaurus If it’s relevant to the job. I’m sitting through a machine learning class now. Would mention it if necessary.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to shaenasaurus

@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.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to sjGoring

@Stew @altmetric Love the email alerts! Just noticed that @NCI_NCIP tweeted my recent paper. Wouldn’t have noticed otherwise.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@DrLabRatOry I nodded without even reading the article. I did bookmark it for later though. /sad
