figshare and don’t trust celebrities stating facts


A couple of links:

  1. figshare is a site where scientists can share data sets/figures/code. One of the goals is to encourage researchers to share negative results as well. I think this is a great idea - I often find negative results and this could be a place to put them. It also uses a tagging system, like Flickr. I think this is a great idea for scientific research discovery. They give you unlimited public space and 1GB of private space. This could be big, a place to help make reproducible research efforts user-friendly. Via TechCrunch
  2. Don’t trust celebrities stating facts because they usually don’t know what they are talking about. I completely agree with this. Particularly because I have serious doubts about the statisteracy of most celebrities. Nod to Alex for the link (our most active link finder!).
