  3. Doesn't look good.
  4. Another paper showing a positive effect of OA publishing on impact.
  5. Includes both funded and unfunded proposals. I like the idea of keeping this online.
  6. Really nice advice on how to write a good review. Not all (any?) of my reviews have been this good. I'll try to fix that in the future!
  7. Looks interesting and reminds me a bunch of Andy Abbott's book on Methods of Discovery. I should go back and read that one again...

  11. "All living things are gnarly, in that they inevitably do things that are much more complex than one might have expected. The shapes of tree branches are of course the standard example of gnarl. The life cycle of a jellyfish is way gnarly. The wild three-dimensional paths that a humming bird sweeps out are kind of gnarly too, and, if the truth be told, your ears are gnarly as well."
  12. Very small and incomplete list ATM but perhaps it will grow.
  13. "DataKindâ„¢ (formerly known as Data Without Borders) brings together leading data scientists with high impact social organizations through a comprehensive, collaborative approach that leads to shared insights, greater understanding, and positive action through data in the service of humanity."
  14. CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS) is a not for profit joint venture between the world’s leading academic publishers and research libraries whose mission is to build a sustainable, geographically distributed dark archive with which to ensure the long-term survival of Web-based scholarly publications for the benefit of the greater global research community.
  15. Neal Caren's (UNC) data scraping/processing tutorial. Potentially a useful teaching/learning resource?
  16. A hosted, place-based wiki project created by the founder of DavisWiki, probably the most successful place-based wiki around
  17. Introduction to a theoretically very efficient system for writing academic papers

  19. With loss leaders, we all lose. Summary: "We show that large retailers, competing with smaller stores that carry a narrower range, can exercise market power by pricing below cost some of the products also offered by the smaller rivals, in order to discriminate multistop shoppers from one-stop shoppers. Loss leading thus appears as an exploitative device rather than as an exclusionary instrument, although it hurts the smaller rivals as well; banning below-cost pricing increases consumer surplus, rivals' profits, and social welfare. Our insights extend to industries where established firms compete with entrants offering fewer products. They also apply to complementary products such as platforms and applications."

  20. "Just to put these in perspective, if these results are to be believed, not-drinking relative to drinking is almost as unhealthy as being obese, and not-drinking-wine relative to drinking wine is almost as unhealthy as smoking."
