Select from my twitter-log

cboettig on the @GigaScience tweetnome rapid publication of e.coli outbreak genome #datacite

 @chrismentzel #datacite can penetrate the science community when it makes a difference in the scale/quality of the science we do(?)

cboettig “What would scholarly comm look like if it were built from scratch today?” Priem’s ans: Doesn’t matter, can’t do that #datacite

TAC_NISO #datacite @jasonpriem Journals are the best we can do with 17th century technology. We can do better

cboettig RT @jasonpriem: Slides up #datacite, “Toward a second revolution: Data citation, altmetrics, and the decoupled journal”

cboettig .@jasonpriem summarizes citation practices #datacite asks what about diff types of use? person? resource?

cboettig Sylvia from NSF speaks on citation of data in biosketches, etc. Suggests NSF needs instructions to PIs for reference proposals #datacite

cboettig RT @mrgunn: #Mendeley is working on adding dataset as a type as well #datacite

cboettig Evidence that younger researchers are more protective of their data than established ones. Published in #datacite

mrgunn , a tool from @researchremix and @jasonpriem being shown at #datacite

cboettig See @researchremix notebook on tracking 1000 data sets #datacite

cboettig .@researchremix shows evidence that data deposition is a good investment in Nature piece: #datacite

cboettig .@wilbanks Academia is not providing a data firehose, so everyone is mining facebook & twitter instead #makeAPIsnotWebsites #datacite

cboettig @wilbanks discusses creating a data-journal, Open Network Biology. and challenges of reviewing such articles #datacite

cboettig .@wilbanks calls for data solutions that follow the Rule of Least Power: #datacite

cboettig Need evolving system - @wilbanks cites this early attack on HTML and the resulting beautiful fix in css:
