Journals & Conferences - I believe we should compile a list of conferences and journals related to our research area, and then post this list on the DiGS wiki. I know that I myself have a limited knowledge of the relevant journals and conferences in my area. Let's collect suggestions here and then create a page on the wiki!
Eucalyptus http://open.eucalyptus.com/, an open-source cloud implementation. It's not BRAND new, but if you haven't checked it out, take a look. It is the technology running the Ubuntu Cloud platform in Ubuntu 9.10. I haven't looked too deep, but they have a couple of papers, docs, and source code for dl. I say we build ourselves a cloud ;)
Does anyone have any suggestions for a good linux or cross-platform diagramming tool to do some quick basic UML diagramming? Just the basic stuff, class & sequence diagrams. In the past I have not been able to find anything I like, so I thought the group might have some favourites to share.
I found an excellent app for managing research papers. It has a lot of great features for organization, tagging, automatic data extraction, adding notes and highlights to pdfs... it also allows you to store your pdfs and meta-data in the cloud for retrieval and synchronization from multiple machines. Check it out. http://www.mendeley.com/
