Linkage

An initiative to prevent irreproducible science.

A video about Graham’s number.

I don’t tweet, but all of this debate seems ridiculous to me. I think the real issue is who follows twitter? I know Sergio is on Twitter, but is anyone else?

Food : An Atlas is a book project on kickstarter by people who do “guerrilla cartography.” It is about food, broadly construed. $25 gets you a copy of the book, and it looks awesome, especially if you like maps. And who doesn’t like maps?

I remember reading about the demise of the American Chestnut tree, but apparently it may make a comeback!

  1. I use twitter too. Of course, I mostly use it to follow comedians and fake people (such as the fake God and the fake Queen of England), but they are hilarious!

  2. I follow Sergio. He’s pretty good because he only tweets occasionally and it’s usually new to me. He adds variety to my flipboard. So far, I haven’t heard of anyone or thing else that seems worth following. Since I owe your blog a big THANKYOU for introducing me to the notability app, I’m happy to hear a few suggestions for other twitter feeds I might enjoy. 🙂

  3. I use twitter also, tweeting sparingly, and follow a few academics and many comedians. Clearly not many people were using the #ISIT2012 hashtag, so I agree that it doesn’t seem to be a problem for the information theory currently.

    A point of the article seemed to be that some conference presenters might be uncomfortable having their work shared freely online, which I think is exactly what this blog does. To me that seems fine, since the purpose of conferences is to disseminate information, and social media allows that information to be spread to people who couldn’t attend the conference. (So thanks Anand.)
