When I'm travelling to give talks I sometimes need all the alone time I can get, to recharge. So I often don't seek out people in the places I'm visiting for hellos and coffees. Is a huge missed opportunity, and I wish I could do it all. But I assume there will be a future chance when it does work out, and it usually does :)
My new laptop lid is missing stickers. Need a hub to send out a mixpack from @thePeerJ, @figshare, @ImpactStory, @DataDryad, @GitHub etc :) Seriously, would be awesome if someone did this. I'd pay shipping+handling+surcharge. Would help us all spread the word to our colleagues!
squee!!! ImpactStory was invited to the White House!!! Jason+I+guests attended the Open Sci champs of change ceremony yesterday, and ImpactStory gave one of the 12 posters in the reception afterwards. [we weren't allowed to say anything publicly till after the event. almost killed me.]
Rollercoaster last few weeks and months. exhausted. anyone have a nice dry cool cave with wifi and lots of outlets, outside the current time-space continuum, that I could crawl into by myself to recharge?
In my inbox: I am delighted to confirm that your request for funds to support the scaling and further development to sustainability of ImpactStory, a nonprofit open altmetrics platform that helps scholars evaluate, sort, consume, and reward web-native products has been approved by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
Feelin really thankful to person at NSF who championed FastLane demo site. It is a great way to get hands dirty learning about proposal submission process when account not yet active. You might want to check it out too, if curious about all the hoops for submission: https://www.fldemo.nsf.gov/jsp...
anyone have easy access to this? I can't get my VPNs to work... http://chronicle.com/article... I've heard if you "share via twitter" it creates a free link for a few days, or you can just email me hpiwowar gmail com. thanks!
