(Everyone needs an "I'm wonderful" wall, right? Here's mine!)
Turns out I'm now a leading evangelist for cloud computing in genomic research, which I guess is true if evangelism is relative! My evangelism, plus 2 bucks, may get me a cup of coffee and a grant...
with blogposts like this, who needs peer-review journals?
Unfortunately my blog posts don't count for promotion & tenure, so that would be me needing peer-review journals ;). I also am sadly amused that one of the most content-ful blog posts I've written recently got very little notice. It's frustrating that people seem to prefer to kibitz about open access/open source more than actually blogging in detail about what they're doing at a technical level. We need more of that.
Greg Wilson just posted an interview with me about why Michigan State, GEDD, and I are all interested in Sotware Carpentry. I told him to stop bothering me and just read my several blog posts on the subject, but he out-persisted me. Grumble.
And finally, next week I'm going to start a blog-off with Jonathan Eisen as we'll both be at a Terabase Metagenomics meeting. (He doesn't know about the blog-off yet, so don't tell him, ok?) Points will be awarded on --
- first blogpost on the worst -omics word comign from the meeting (we re-invented "predictomics" in my lab last Friday!)
- snarkiest comment
- quickest tweet off the mark ("just 10 seconds ago the speaker said this!")
- least scientifically relevant tweet
I'm hoping to gin up a solid lead before Jonathan realizes we're competing. Shhh.
