Mozilla Science Lab and HackYourPhD
A few months ago, I heard about a crowdfunded project called “HackYourPHD” – a community and resource building effort led by a researcher in France to collect information and run interviews with a diverse cast of characters in the open science world. The founder, Celya Gruson-Daniel (a neuroscientist by training), had become frustrated by many of the analog practices and mindsets in science, and decided to set out to crowdfund a trip through North America to do research on open research.
I had the pleasure of chatting with Celya last week at Columbia University, as she passed through New York on her nationwide tour. You can listen to the audio of our interview linked above, as well as listen to her interviews with other key folks in this space here: https://soundcloud.com/hackyourphd/
On being grownups about childish behavior
Quite possibly the best summation of the polarisation (and in many cases, absolute idiocy / insidiousness) of the Adria Richards / PyCon commentary. Well said, Tom.
Fun collection of iPython notebooks and resources, including ones on laser models, analysis of the financial crisis, look at the mining disaster and more. There are even a few broader resources (ie., “Git for Scientists: A Tutorial“) sprinkled in.
A painfully cute one, at that. Done using Mozilla’s PopcornMaker.
Have a watch 🙂
an editable Lego madlib adventure
For those of us who need some peace from networking and “being on” at times, without feeling the need to supply an excuse. Cannot +1 this enough.
The Silent Club – a manifesto
Clever idea … and larger than some London / NYC flats. 😉
