Sunday data/statistics link roundup (2/17/2013)

  1. The Why Axis - discussion of important visualizations on the web. This is one I think a lot of people know about, but it is new to me. (via Thomas L. - p.s. I'm @leekgroup on Twitter, not @jtleek). 
  2. This paper says that people who "engage in outreach" (read: write blogs) tend to have higher academic output (hooray!) but that outreach itself doesn't help their careers (boo!).
  3. It is a little too late for this year, but next year you could make a Valentine with R.
  4. An email charter (via Rafa). This is pretty similar to my getting email responses from busy people. Not sure who scooped who. I'm still waiting for my to-do list app. Mailbox is close, but I still want actions to be multiple choice or yes/no or delegation rather than just snoozing emails for later.
  5. Top ten reasons not to share your code, and why you should anyway.

    Yeah, I noticed I'd got the address wrong.

    On point 2, that same paper says that people who teach more also tend to have higher academic research output, so I don't really believe the interpretation that outreach has no negative impact on research. It's just that people who do outreach are more wonderful in every way :)

    for point 2. they also found "scientists performing the popularization activities that are mostly driven by the offer ... have a slightly lower average hy than the other scientists." Seems like blogs might fit into that group better than radio, tv, etc.

    BUT

    Amstat News did a short Q & A with some statistics bloggers a few years ago (Sep 2010) and all seemed to think blogging was helpful for their careers
