Even academics can learn to use LInkedIn
Wasn’t I right to complain that people kept endorsing me for skills they couldn’t possibly know I possessed?

+Chad Haney, I'm on LinkedIn, Academia.edu, and ResearchGate. For me, working in industry, LinkedIn is probably the best networking site, but I've found that ResearchGate is an excellent place to get answers to questions that arise in the course of my work. I"ve also been able to contribute answers to questions that others have, and I can get copies of papers that I need/want to read. I haven't found much use for Academia.edu. It is, as +Bryan Bonvallet said, LI for academics, and isn't a great fit for me. Academia.edu offers access to papers, like ResearchGate, but I've found only a very few papers that I am looking for that are on Academia.edu exclusively.

What we talk about when we talk about science.
When giving presentations to different audiences, I put a lot of effort into the problem of explaining chemical concepts to nonscientists. Sometimes I’m so focused on that problem I forget to ask...

Over 1000 visitors to the site I started in November to help PhD scientists get career skills. Thanks for reading, and stand by for some surprises in 2016. And do let me know if there are topics you'd like addressed in future essays!

 Hi sir, I am currently taking up my Masters Degree in Physics, and it was really a light to me when you said about the storytelling part. It always annoys me whenever I read my papers which sometimes follow a storytelling mode. Now I wouldn't hesitate to do the same with focus on concepts and key points. Thank you sir.

Scientists can give better research presentations by learning to tell a good story.

If a research presentation is a story, then the struggle of a researcher to get data is the wrong story to tell.

I don't know what digital analytics is, but these guys speak my language. Looking at data does not make you data-driven.
Sometimes...well...MOST times...a lobby bar conversation starts on one topic and ends up somewhere entirely different. In this episode, our intrepid trio initially tackles the relationship between data and corporate creativity, and then veers off into...

Yeah, my kids are doing common core math, too. Know what? It's pretty cool.
Well, there you have it. Right there in black and white...my reaction to seeing my 4th grade son's math homework, and not having a clue how to help him. It was

Listen to Is Science Suffering From a Reproducibility Crisis? by Signal #np on #SoundCloud
https://soundcloud.com/stat-signal-podcast/reproducibility-crisis-science-research
Isaac Newton famously said that “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” It’s a crucial point. Scientists discover new things by building on facts established by those who came before. But what if the science that laid the groundwork for new discoveries ... was wrong? In this week's episode, we explore what some have come to call the "crisis of reproducibility" plaguing the world of scientific research. Way more th...

Excellent coffee as expected, plus one of the best croissants I've ever had. Nice place to read a book in the morning.
