When did we, as a society, decide that hugging is the appropriate way to greet casual professional acquaintances?
When women entered the workforce is my starting point but then i don't see that really happening till much much more recently. - Steve C Team Marina
Yeah. I wish this weren't true. - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
Zamms
OH MY GOD, MEG.

ICE CREAM GETS THE BIDEN BUMP! - Zamms
The bump abidens. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
will I get fired if I make this my desktop background at work? - Meg VMeg
Are you kidding? You'll get an insta-promotion. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I mean, I've done it: http://ff.im/1krG17 - Zamms
If that is the picture from yesterday that is no mere ice cream that he is eating, it is Salt n Straw. It's like the king of ice cream. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
Joe Biden doesn't mess around. - Zamms from iPhone
Hehehe love it - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
The part if that picture you don't see is how for him to get that ice cream and picture they shut down Alberta street basically Tons of police protection the street was blocked lots of businesses were inaccessible. I know a lot of people that live in the area. It was crazy. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce from iPhone
It's that way pretty much anywhere the Pres or VP go, no matter who's in office. Obama's been down here this week and there have been updates on traffic, etc. because of how his security/entourage affects everything. - Spidra Webster
You've just described every street around a duckpin bowling alley Joe's been visiting EVERY DAY since he's taken office. - Zamms
Meg VMeg
Do you guys ever daydream that one day FriendFeed will get emancipated from Facebook, in, like, a "no hard feelings" kind of a way, and then the whole world will realize how great it is, and they'll all sign up, and then we'll be, like, the rock star elders of FriendFeed, and everyone will love and worship us?
Everything up to "and then the whole world" sounded pretty good. - Steven Perez from Android
I wish FF would get minor feature updates, at least. New Twitter API (?), Vine and Instagram video integration, HTTPS for Youtube, a bookmarklet that can handle whatever weird thing Tumblr does for photo gallery pages. - Andrew C (✔)
Yes. All the time. Although only if it stays sort of the same, or I get some kind of old-skool privileges like free lifetime ad-free membership. - laura x
Nope, for two reasons. One, "ad-free" would not be in the story, not unless it was a fee operation (you know, The Well is still around...). Two, I don't think we could have the sometimes-frank, lively, open, effective, non-trollish discussions we do if there were 100 million people on FriendFeed. (Take, for example, some of the librarian groups on FB. Please.) - Walt Crawford
as long as I'm dreaming up features, I'd like to have newlines in comments (I realize this can be abused), newlines preserved from imported content like Twitter, and some amount of optional markup, or at least spoilers markup. - Andrew C (✔)
Andrew, new lines are preserved when posted - ffhound app displays then appropriately (well, android app, not sure about ios version anymore). - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Meg, to be honest - yes. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Kind of like how Bill and Ted and the Wyld Stallyns band is so revered in the future. - Joe
I have daydreams of hiring Jimminy and setting up FF2 when/if FB ever gives up on this place. But there's no viable business model. The closest would be donations. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Stephen, how much would it cost? - Meg VMeg
Bandwidth and hosting is likely costing FB at least $5k a month. A part-time sysadmin at least that as well. Any development costs would be double or triple that just for maintenance and minor features. If we can't raise $100k a year it's not worth even considering. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Huh. What if we sold ads that only showed up if people weren't logged in? And never fixed/added any of the stuff Andrew wants (sorry Andrew)? And got Blake to host it http://friendfeed.com/blakest... (sorry Blake) - Meg VMeg
I would pay for FF. - laura x from iPhone
I would pay for FF. - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
Yep, me too. I was thinking of how Metafilter is partly pay-what-you-will now, in addition to ads for non-members and for members who choose not to turn them off. - Meg VMeg
What if FB just relaunched FF with a new name and a graphical refresh? Like, "Hey", with a condensed Helvetica logo, all in black and white? #takethatEllo - Andrew C (✔)
Stephen, I dream of hiring Jimminy too. Maybe he could help add functionality to a Buddypress site? - Mary B: #TeamMonique
The guy developing hey just followed me on ello. Is hey a thing? - Joe
Meg VMeg
"The full text for selected articles from this publisher cannot be printed." Thanks, but no thanks, HBR.
"In fact, we'd prefer you don't even read them. But if you DO have to read them, please send us $250 for the privilege, per paragraph, at which point you will be required to read it through a blindfold." - lris
HATE - jambina
Wow. - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
Yup. This is why we continue to purchase the print and will scan and put on reserve articles as needed for courses. - Holly's favorite Anna
yep, anna - ellbeecee
Hey, Heather's back! *waves at Heather* - Meg VMeg
:) *waves*. Lurking more than posting recently, but am here. FriendFeed makes me happy. Thanks for saying hi, am happy to see you too :) - Heather Piwowar from iPhone

#sla2014 Here's the blogged version of my talk "On Professional Communication..." http://sarahglassmeyer.com/?p=1291
<slow clap> - sglassme
I like how you draw the line at the C-word. F-word in play, C-word verboten. - sglassme
So was SA in the audience? - John Dupuis
Hey, Sarah. Thank you for this. <3 <3 <3 - RepoRat
Yes. Yes! YES! - Rebecca Hedreen
Really glad you liked it! - Sarah G.
This is made of 24 karat awesome. - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
Very much enjoyed this! - Hedgehog from Android
Tony Stankus did not like it....but I liked it. - Joe
Who's Tony Stankus? - Sarah G. from iPhone
I wish I could have watched the audience clutch their pearls as you demonstrated your authenticity :) - Christina Pikas
The Sarah Glassmeyer Experience is not for everyone. I'm glad I apologized first. - Sarah G. from iPhone
It was awesome live. Really really good. Human and forthright and unapologetic and thoughtful and good spirited. And useful. - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
Thank you! I was so jacked on adrenaline I must admit details are fuzzy, but I remember liking yours too! I'm so glad I got to meet you in person as well! - Sarah G.
I'm printing this out and pasting the rules on my wall. - Eric - ill subliminal

RT @SLAAcadSCS: Ms. Piwowar of @Impactstory Noon, "Show all the metrics" Rm 211. (Not 11:30a in print guide) http://sla2014.sched.org/event... @researchremix #sla2014
Dr. Ms. Piwowar... not just plain Ms Piwowar :) - Christina Pikas
Heather Piwowar
So much fun so many people I know in town for SLA! So complicated is same week my husband got back from work trip, inlaws here to visit, and teachers strike :( want to hang out lots but so short on time.
I'll be at SLA at noon today for a talk and at closing ceremony. Say hi if you see me please and I'll do same. - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
And if I miss you, I hope you have a great time in our beautiful city :) - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
Heather Piwowar
i don't want to believe jean-claude bradley has died.
I hear you. - RepoRat
nope nope nope nope nope - Meg VMeg
me neither - jambina
Hard to process. - John Dupuis
Me neither. When there was only one source I hoped it had been some horrible mistake but the. It showed up on their chem dept website - Christina Pikas from iPhone
I've been thinking about this all day. What is the best way to commemorate? - Joe
great question, joe. donation to CC in his honour? wikispaces? malaria research? an ONS jean-claude bradley award as part of BMC award suite? - Heather Piwowar
I was going to be doing a panel with Matt Todd and JC on Open Notebooks in Rio in August. That will definitely have some form of dedication. Beyond that? JC definitely believed in the power of prizes to motivate and I can only think that he would have wanted to see something *happen* not just be talked about. - Cameron Neylon
Stephen Francoeur
Do you know by heart your library ID# or barcode #?
Yes. Both work and my local public library. - ellbeecee
For work yes, PL no. - Pete
90257862952. Yep. - RepoRat
Nope, but my browser has it stored. I just have to remember the first digit (7). - Catherine Pellegrino
Yes! though I got a new barcode on my ID and didn't tell the library system. - barbara fister
I don't know my barcode #, but I know the alternate ID I created for it. - Katy S
nope - DJF
barbara, how do you check things out, then? - DJF
I do have mine saved as a keyboard shortcut tho - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Yep. - Jason P
I know the numbers of my PL one, but can never remember what order they go in. Work? Maybe first three digits, on a good day. (Remembering random strings of numbers is not a strong suit.) - Kirsten
I remember my credit-card number too. (Not gonna type it here tho. Don't ask.) - RepoRat
I JUST finally memorized it after 8 years. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
I couldn't learn the first one. They gave me a new one when I moved, and for some reason that one was a breeze to learn. - bentley
Yes, all 14 digits of it! - Lisa Hinchliffe
I can probably be attacked via social engineering. BUT IT'S GONNA BE HARDER THAN THAT Y'ALL. - RepoRat
you mean there are people who DON'T have their credit card numbers memorized? - DJF
I don't have mine memorized … relying instead on the keyboard shortcut. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
No. This is this first card I've had since junior high where I didnt tho. also first time I've had a publib w/ username for placing holds that wasnt my card# - Hedgehog from Android
I can, however tell you a number from jr high/high school 120204588926 - Hedgehog from Android
i know my publib one but not my work one - Christina Pikas
Work, yes; public no. This work one is much shorter than the last which I also knew (and shorter than the public). - Rebecca Hedreen
Nope, I keep it in a password-locked local Evernote note so I can copy/paste whenever I need to log in and renew things. - MontglaneChess
Work yes, pub lib no - Joe
I have had it memorized for years. - Julian
I have everything memorized. It's a curse. I still remember some NDC codes from when I was a pharmacy assistant and CPT codes from when I worked at a surgery center. - kaijsa
00085-1132 is an albuterol inhaler. Never forget! - kaijsa
Yes and everyone at my library is amazed I have it memorized - John: Thread Killer
Our ID system doesn't talk to our patron records, so I have no idea what my new barcode is - and neither does our ILS. I aim to keep it that way rather than memorize a new 14-digit number. - barbara fister
I am with Kaijsa. I have managed to forget a few barcodes, but 6-20-16 was my junior high locker combo. - laura x from iPhone
Nope. I know my Texas driver license number, though. - Meg VMeg
I did, but then I became a donor to the library and they issued me a special card. That's nice, but it had a new number :( - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
sure, although it's not really required because my browser will remember it ... thankfully, for work and school it's all connected to AD logins so there's nothing extra to remember. - henry
Work yes, public no. - Steele Lawman
Public library, 14 digits, yes. :) - Rachel Walden

Hive mind: what's best way to get from Portland OR to Vancouver BC. (Note: Without hitching ride with dude holding "Gas, grass or ass" sign)
Train. Not fast, but it's a beautiful trip. - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
With or without Mom and Dad hitching along? - sglassme
Well...there's a conference in Portland that I really want to go to and then SLA a couple days later in Vancouver that I have to go to and it seems silly (and non-environmental) to fly across the country back to back like that. I have not mentioned any of this to the old people, but they are always welcome to come along (as long as their snoring asses get their own room.) - Sarah G.
I haven't done it (yet), but I'd also suggest train. Otherwise, Alaska (actually Horizon) and Air Canada (actually their regional airline) both have reasonably quick, but not reasonably cheap, flights. (You might reasonably gasp at paying that much for a 75 minute flight...) - Walt Crawford
the train is nice, and one of my preferred modes for going up north, but the line between Portland-Vancouver can be problematic as far as delays go (either just running behind schedule or the tracks getting blocked because of accidents/mudslides/you name it). as long as you have a buffer and aren't crunched for time, it should be fine. otherwise it's a quick flight. i am a huge Alaska Air fan myself. - holly #ravingfangirl
I like Alaska Air also, and the little jets on Horizon are OK. (And if you're an American frequent flyer, Alaska/Horizon's a partner.) (Dunno much about Air Canada.) - Walt Crawford
...especially now I know the Alaska are guy is a dude with a furry hat and not one with an Afro. - Sarah G.

Up at 4am to watch hockey. Lovin twitter that makes it feel like the rest of canada is awake too :)

Volcano!
Wasting an hour attending a meeting otherwise mostly-irrelevant to me where I was to speak to two agenda items, but due to confusion over how long it was to last, it got cut short right before my items. - Deborah Fitchett
new colleague in the office who has no "inside voice". - Marie
Snow. What happens if I throw snow into the volcano? - Katy S
<censored> - aaron
2014 so far. - laura x from iPhone
Small mountains of gray ice blocks mixed with garbage, dog pee, etc. on every street. The snow in NYC is only nice for a few hours, then it's a sad mess (except in the parks). - Stephen Francoeur
giant driveway snowpile - maʀtha
This damned cold I have. Still. - bentley
The Wife is away this week on business. :( - Andy
today's incessant hammering, to fix a leak - Rachel Walden

I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that repositories are largely designed to make it as difficult as possible to find out whats in them, and what it actually is...I have 36,000 DOIs and I'd like to know whether they are in a repository...
Yeah, good luck w that, as far as I know. Though I'd love to be wrong! - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
*shrug* yeah, basically. author-supplied metadata, need SQL knowledge and back-end server access to batch-fix anything, no version-spanning identifiers, no agreed-upon version-linking metadata... the scaffolding to make this shit work just isn't there. - RepoRat
NISO is working on the version-linking problem, but, you know, *NISO*... - RepoRat
...and OAI-PMH...[shudder]...well not the standard so much as the way its implemented in apparently 25 subtly different ways, and that's before people start shifting the endpoint without notifying anyone - Cameron Neylon
Version linking problem will likely get solved by Crossref and either UK repo community or SHARE getting itself together. I don't have a problem with either route - lets get DOIs or handls for repository content and then we can set up some sort of global "relates-to/is-a-version-of" service somewhere. People are already gathering that data anyway - just its all over the place. - Cameron Neylon
Can you do title of article matching? I know that won't work in many cases. Maybe 80-95% of the time? - Joe
OAI-PMH is shite. It didn't have to be, but that's what happens when you dump something into the world and then abandon it, LAGOZE AND VAN DE SOMPEL. - RepoRat
Title matching is problematic and we essentially have to do it via a pull of the entire repo content as well as essentially no-one currently provides a search API. I can see why people keep building things like CORE and BASE as a way around these problems but...[sigh] - Cameron Neylon
Once I've got some info we can then do fun stuff (we could do more fun stuff if most publishers weren't just as crap at providing good metadata of course but one battle at a time) - Cameron Neylon
when you say nobody provides an API you mean repos? If so, are there any repo platforms that do,and if so are they doing what you need? - Kubke
So eprints and DSpace both surface an OAI-PMH service by default. But they tend to do so in very inconsistent ways. What no-one seems to do (or at least document) is a service by which I can hit a repo with an identifier like a DOI and say "do you have full text for this?" This seems to me rather fundamental to the point of the exercise...really not keen on the idea of downloading the entire catalogue for a few thousand repos... - Cameron Neylon
How's a repo supposed to know? In a self-archiving context, faculty won't put in DOIs for stuff they deposit (even assuming it has one yet, which a pre/postprint often won't). Title/author matching is dicey as hell. - RepoRat
Assuming mediated deposit, that lookup is pretty time-consuming if done manually. There is no service that automates it that I'm aware. - RepoRat
No you're right there isn't. To be honest my problem isn't so much that people don't use OAI-PMH dc:identifier to provide a DOI, but more that there is no way to lookup. I'll live with title/author matching as a starting point but what's really problematic is there's no way to say "here's a bunch of articles, tell me which ones you (think you) have, and tell me of those which you have full text for" - Cameron Neylon
That said, a good deposit path would involve triggering off bibliographic databases, that info would often include enough to determine a DOI. And of course the Crossref API itself is pretty good at matching a freetext citation (authors plus title plus journal). It could be done (and some repos do it) - Cameron Neylon
but whatever would anyone need a repository query API for?!?! The Great Information Scientists didn't build one, so obviously it's not needed! Everybody uses OAI-PMH, so that MUST mean it's the bee's knees!</sarcasm> - RepoRat
(Do not ask me about the NISO conference call where people were shocked, SHOCKED, that I do not think much of OAI-PMH. Just do not ask me about that. But the last sentence in my previous comment was pretty much verbatim from that call.) - RepoRat
Yes. Well. We're likely to be shortly publicising how the best repositories make it straightforward to determine policy compliance and how others...well...you can figure that out. Never would have thought I'd become a fan of league tables... - Cameron Neylon
Go for it. - RepoRat
Have you played with https://prospect.crossref.org/ at all? I could see this helping... but at this early date possibly not much. - RepoRat

I try to eat locally and in season but costco had gorgeous blackberries for sale and oh my gosh rainforest destruction is delicious.
Ditto but mine was raspberries on Monday. Mmmmmmm. - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
So I shouldn't mention local blackberries and raspberries that probably didn't involve rainforests? (But maybe greenhouses...) - Walt Crawford
Steven Perez
My 5-year-old insists that Bilbo Baggins is a girl. The first time she made this claim, I protested. Part of the fun of reading to your kids, after all, is in sharing the stories you loved as a child. And in the story I knew, Bilbo was a boy. A boy hobbit. (Whatever that entails.) But my daughter was determined. She liked the story pretty well so... - http://silas216.tumblr.com/post...

Half and half. I can't believe I hadn't thought of this combo yet. - Marie from iPhone
sort of a shandy, innit? - holly #ravingfangirl
^ this. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
a Shandy? - Lnorigb
Of course, in college, we called it "skip'n'go" (short for skip and go naked.) - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
A "Radler" in Germany... translates as "cyclist", was a cyclist's drink. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... fwiw as someone who drank these while cycling in Germany: yum :) - Heather Piwowar
Leinenkugels has a summer shandy with some lemonade in it, but not half n half. - Joe

HOW TO: Connect With the FriendFeed Community
OLD SCHOOL!!! Just a little reminder of how thankful I am that this place is still around :) - Iain Baker from Bookmarklet
I couldn't be bothered to go back that many pages :) - Iain Baker
I remember when Mona popped up in 2008/9 and suddenly became a bit of a sensation. Shame she doesn't still visit once in a while. - Iain Baker
Those were the days. So many people left, assuming FB would pull the plug - and here we are. With the friends who feed us. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
I remember the takeover day - very odd. Lots of people saying it will never be the same again. Facebook left ff to stagnate, and ironically - the fact that it's stayed the same is the reason we're all still here. Its death (if you like) was actually a form of suspended animation, and that allows it to live. So many other social platforms are just mayflys, with people swarming round them, only to depart for pastures new, when the next big thing comes along. - Iain Baker
Iain is right. All the other platforms are the Next Big Thing, until they "improve" themselves to the point where they aren't what we liked about them. Because ff didn't change, it remains the very thing we liked in the first place. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
+1 - Iain Baker
well a lot of them we here.. Mona, scobles , andy biao, charlene ll ,chris messina, dave winer.. to name a few.. they come and left.. and thats it.. When FF started it was the next big thing.. .. the growth and traction was crazy.... maybe thats why FB bought the competition out. - Peter Dawson
I can remember pressing the pause button on the live feed, and reading or replying to a post - a couple of minutes later you'd look up and it would say "268 queued items......." - Iain Baker
well I remeber that we could read people text as they were commenting.. then bret removed the feature - Peter Dawson
We should make a come and left list for prosperity. Like a Friend and Feed (R&R) Hall of Fame. Chris Pirillo. We still had Robert Scoble doing the tours for the Gillmor Gang until very recently (although I haven't checked if that was still the case).. - Zu from AOD

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 :)
Right now? I'm in Denver. There are people I'd love to meet up with in Denver. Hello, all the people I'd love to be meeting up with in Denver!!! I'm sorry I'm not meeting up with you :( I hope to another time, on a trip when I'm not strugglin with a cold etc :) - Heather Piwowar
I do this too. Minding my words and my manners is stressful stuff, and the environments other people choose tend to be a lot noisier than I like. - RepoRat
Totally understandable. - Katy S from iPhone
i do that too, heather. folks understand. - jambina

I am really not cut out for motherhood.
Oh Laura, we're none of us cut out for it. We all muddle through as best we can. - Catherine Pellegrino
*hugs* - Soup in a TARDIS
Agree with Catherine. Muddle through to the next event or stage or the next minute--one step at a time. - Joe
you're very brave! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
**hugs** - Kirsten
Eventually he will go to school. - Steele Lawman
The fact that you feel that way is probably a good sign that you are doing what needs to be done, and that you are a good parent. Anyone who thinks they're great parents are usually kidding themselves and not doing the kid a world of good. You do the best you can, and you keep pushing on, "muddling through" as Catherine put it. That's what parenting is all about. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Sending you much love. I cannot imagine how hard parenting must be. I truly cannot imagine the patience needed. - Janet
Very, very few people are cut out to be a parent of a child Peter's age. The rewards are few and far between. I loved being a mom to a small child in the scheme of things, but day to day, it was tough. You're not alone, and feeling that way does not make you a bad mom or a bad person. It gets better. - Mama Lawson
Hugs. I hear you. You can do it even if you aren't cut out for it. And sometimes you are awesome. And Peter wouldn't rather have any other mom. And you'll be ok. - Heather Piwowar
Sniff. You all are so sweet. - laura x
If it helps any, I am not cut out for motherhood, either. But seriously... as long as Peter knows that you care, and that he is loved, then you are doing well. - Julian
everything comes with directions or instructions a baby comes with none, I had to have the nurse show me how to put on a diaper. - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA
Sometimes you are not cut out to be a mom for a kid THAT AGE. Some folks are great with infants but not toddlers. Some folks love toddlers but lose interest in them when they get bigger. At least whatever stage they're in is guaranteed to change. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
The big problem with parenthood - especially the first child - is by the time you have almost figured one stage out, your child has moved on to the next. How frustrating is that? Don't beat yourself up - you are doing just fine. - Jen
All my parenting pants are worn out in the rear because I am constantly flying by the seat of them. Sometimes the ride is grand, but there's plenty of turbulence too. Hang in there! - Galadriel C. from Android
What m9m said. Becoming a mom doesn't mean you are automatically attuned to every single stage of your child's life & know exactly what to do and when. Courage, sister. - Corinne L

If anyone happens to know of any recent Summon vs Primo comparisons that'd be fantastic. Also my lit search is making me ponder the pros/cons of convincing Google to sell libraries API access to Scholar so we could roll our own discover layer.
good luck with that - DJF
Someone told me (informally) that one of the reasons Google was allowed to index publishers' holdings was the condition that it would *not* make such information available as an API or sold to libraries, or perhaps it was both conditions.... - copystar
I heard that from the google scholar lead directly, yup. Some publishers imposed that restriction re apis. - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
In retrospect unsurprising. Sigh. I understand A&I databases holding on for all they're worth; but full-text databases *should* be giving away at least the bibliographic data: it makes the full-text they sell more popular hence more sellable, and if we could create, say, an open source discovery layer with decent content then maybe we'd have more money to buy that full-text with. - Deborah Fitchett
That's okay, I've been hearing noise about scholar possibly going away and subsumed into regular Google - Aaron the Librarian from Android
stfu - Meg VMeg
I didn't say I liked it - just that I'm hearing it - Aaron the Librarian from Android
I'm mostly only hearing speculative "What if" fears, I haven't heard any noise based on anything even *slightly* more substantial yet. - Deborah Fitchett
We compared em all and there was no real difference between them and a cross search of ebscohost. We still tried to go with summon so we could have better faceting and it failed our tests. Rochkind wrote up the first in code4lib j - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Part of this paper deals with the choice between summon and primo http://www.tandfonline.com/doi... - lris
Awesome, thank you! - Deborah Fitchett
There was a ustream from Charleston today (Thursday) that mentioned this very thing. I think Jenica tweeted a screenshot of that slide too - Aaron the Librarian from Android
Thanks for the links! We are in the very beginningest of talks to think about other-than-Summon, this is helpful stuff. (anecdotally, even without faceting, I still prefer Google Scholar over Summon for finding things both for myself and for almost every student who comes to the research desk. It's not as pretty, or information-full, but it just works better.) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Relevancy magic by google. - aaron
web of knowledge + Google scholar tie up? http://www.outsellinc.com/insight... - guess will be around a while? - aaron from YouFeed

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!
Right now most of these stickers aren't available unless you run into the company at a conference. I want a mix "fan pack"! :) - Heather Piwowar
And every tenth pack will have one older, out of production, sticker in it - DJF from Android
I've got some beer stickers for you. Want? - Joe
I think I have some DataONE stuff I can contribute to the stash. - RepoRat
Yup, I think lots of orgs will send if you ask. But too many orgs to ask individually. I want a one-ask place to get a single serving of all the openness and disruption swag :) - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
Love the idea of a few knowingly out of date stickers. - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
and so the sticker trading tradition began - Kubke from ffturk
I wonder whether this is something Creative Commons could do? Then individuals or event organisers could just contact them for "packs". The swag I got this year was sent to CC - New Zealand for them to distribute as needed to diff events around the country. - Kubke

I just got Boing Boinged: http://boingboing.net/2013...
woot! congrats! - Sir Shuping is just sir
good job, sir - Meg VMeg
Congratulations! - bentley
I know someone who going BoingBoinged. I feel faint... - barbara fister
I feel a little faint too. BB sure brings the traffic. - John Dupuis
Excellent - Hedgehog
We should totally play Six Degrees of BoingBoinged. (Well done, John.) - Catherine Pellegrino
Oh man! So cool! We are all first degree now! - laura x
dang, that's awesome. - Marie
Yeah, uh, this whole thing has been pretty wild. Up to nearly 12K page views, which is by far the most popular post I've ever done. Posts on the politicization of science in Canada have always been popular, but in the 1-2K page view range. - John Dupuis
Liked on Fb: 3.6K, Tweets: 763. Even 74 +1's on G+, for heaven's sake. - John Dupuis
But, how much has this been shared in friendfeed? - Joe
Now it's slashdot and stumbleupon. - John Dupuis
Who did you pay, and how much? - Joe
I wish I were that smart. I guess I should mention that I did submit the post to BB but I imagine they pick up only a very small portion of what's submitted. I suspected I would have a decent shot because Cory Doctorow is Canadian and he has posted about the Canadian goverment in the past. Aside from that, all I did was tweet it up a bit more than usual. - John Dupuis
Didn't know that there was a process for submitting posts to BB, and that is good to know. - Joe
Edging up to 30K page views, 73 comments, 7K likes, 1100 tweets, 200 +1's and more than a dozen links from other blogs (including Bruce Sterling, of all people). Probably a dozen or so emails with suggestions, some from insiders. This is seriously unlike anything else that's ever happened. - John Dupuis
What fun! Congrats, and good job, John. You hit a nerve, and brought info. - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
rock on, man! - RepoRat
Thanks. I've noticed a few people have basically republished my list, with attribution. I'm thinking CC0 for this post. - John Dupuis
So, I CC0'd it and it has been republished a few times. Up around 37K page views. And a couple of media interview requests have trickled in. - John Dupuis
I kind of like how he introduces your post: "John Dupuis has assembled a brief, brutal chronology …" yay librarians for assembling chronologies! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Special Agent Fister coined the term Liberation Bibliography sometime back. I like to think I do a version of that too. - John Dupuis
I'm honored if that phrase describes what you do. Brilliantly. - barbara fister
Delayed effect, I guess, but one media interview last week, two tomorrow and one on Thursday. Not all directly related to this post but at least in part to an enhanced profile. - John Dupuis
Interviews that happened: campus radio station (CHRY), Skeptically Speaking (a full hour!), Macleans blog, Tyee and one freelancer. I suspect not all of the interviews will surface, but we'll see. Another interesting development: I'll be setting up a phone meeting with the NDP Science & Tech critic. - John Dupuis
Well, at least one came out: http://thetyee.ca/Blogs... - John Dupuis
So, uh, fast approaching 50K page views, links from the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist), faculty members stopping me in the hallways thanking me for the post, emails from members of Parliament (incl a party leader...) and a bunch from various advocacy groups, quite a bit of traffic around the Stand Up for Science rallies last week. So, I guess this is my legacy. - John Dupuis
And my somewhat out of date altmetrics post: http://scienceblogs.com/confess... - John Dupuis
I think the NYT editorial happened because of you. http://www.nytimes.com/2013... - barbara fister
I'm afraid I can't take credit for that, other than as part of the overall consciousness raising efforts that have raised the profile of what's going on. On the other hand, I am doing a radio interview tonight on BC community radio. CFRO at 7pm/10pm. - John Dupuis

Heard about this on NPR this morning: Perma.cc will be a free tool to archive webpages that you cite in articles so that your citations don't die.
hmmmmmmm - Hedgehog
An interesting end-around of Copyright? - Aaron the Librarian
No more than a Google cache, really. I just read something about how Supreme Court references to web pages are about half 404s. This is a nifty idea. - barbara fister
I half-remember a lawsuit against a bookmarking service that made site copies... Digg, maybe? No idea what happened to it. - RepoRat
Ah yes, I used Furl way back in the day. - lris
Pinboard does this if you pay them (and I do, because sometimes the full-text search is the only thing that will find the page I'm vaguely remembering), but "your" archive is private, not public. - RepoRat
It seems like this functionality would make people angry. - Meg VMeg
Webcite was doing this, but last I heard couldn't make it pay - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
Diigo does it, unless it stopped. Furl was great! - JffKrlsn from Android

I got a one-star review on Amazon! Go me! (And yes, I DID publish my own diary.) - laura x from Bookmarklet
I don't think you've actually made it until you have at least one idiotic one-star review. What you need now are some four-star reviews, since some would-be readers dismiss five-star and one-star alike. Hmm...trouble is, I'll have to find something to criticize. (I know: It's too short!) - Walt Crawford
The comment rocks though :-D - Shannon - GlassMistress
"How this was published is the real story." I love it. :) - Catherine Pellegrino
1) I wrote it. 2) I got Walt's book. 3) I spent a year formatting the thing in 15 minutes increments. 4) I uploaded it to Lulu. 5) Steve made a cover. 6) I hit Publish. - laura x
Mind you, two of the reviews there are by people I know, or at least know online. But I have no idea who Yehti and RL are. - laura x
So, I may have just clicked to the "no", this one star review was not helpful. I tend to do this when the one star commentary is snarky. - Janet from FFHound!
Sigh. I tend not to write Amazon reviews (also why I have yet to become a full-fledged GoodReads user: other than old movies, I'm not much for review writing), and what I submitted probably isn't very good, but at least there's now one non-extreme review (that is, neither five-star nor one-star). - Walt Crawford
I think it is a great review, Walt. - Heather Piwowar
It's an honest review. I really did want more. (You know, until I wrote that, I hadn't really thought about the fact that my wife and I are both the result of unexpected pregnancies--both last children, both definitely unplanned. And both loved, to be sure.) - Walt Crawford
Thank you, Walt. You're very kind. It still strikes me as awful that LCSH has Pregnancy--Unwanted but not Pregnancy--Unplanned (my friend Edie snuck it in there on the WorldCat record for my book). - laura x
I am the proud owner of a one star review. Someone was mad, but never actually reached out to me in all the ways I made available. - Eric - ill subliminal
I just purchased the book! - Janet
Thank you, Janet! - laura x from BuddyFeed
I just bought mine, too. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
David Rothman's comment on the 1star review is great! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Just started reading this book and am very touched with the feeling you are just sitting and chatting with me alone. I cannot explain this, maybe in the work I do with prenatal ultrasound makes this so much more personal. I will pace my reading but the one star review is clearly off the mark. Five star three chapters in. - Janet from FFHound!
I feel this is appropriate: http://www.funnysigns.net/files... - Andy
Andy, that's awesome. Laura, Thank you, and Janet, thank you again. - laura x from BuddyFeed

Anyone doing a qualitative study on obstacles in opening up research data? Come talk to me today. Because uploading mine is on my todo list. And I'm dreading it SO VERY MUCH.
As you know, I could not be more behind the principle. - Heather Piwowar
But the perfectionist part of me? Just doesn't want to finalize its current state. I want it to be better. I have no time to make it better. - Heather Piwowar
ARG. only way out is through. First step: open up the folder, right? right. - Heather Piwowar
for the record: the promise of more future citations helps today's dread not at all :) - Heather Piwowar
There are a fair few attitudinal studies out there, yeah. They won't say anything you don't already know. - RepoRat
yeah. I think people still way under-appreciate the fear-of-looking-stupid-or-sloppy hurdle. - Heather Piwowar
the absence of clear standards sure doesn't help. - RepoRat
Does it help that I want to read it so much? - Deborah Fitchett
It does, actually, yeah :) - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
