I’ve been using Twitter for reading and our QUT Maths/Stats Slack domain for discussing maths, stats, data science, etc. over the last few months. So the way I use social media for work has changed a lot, and I’ve not been blogging as often. In any case, I figured there’s enough random stuff I encounter floating around that it could be good to restart the info dump that is Posterior samples.
- Wilson et al. – Good Enough Practices in Scientific Computing. I’ve noticed that I’m a lot more evangelical about people using git to collaboratively work on R-based analysis these days.

- Vicky Butt – Why Women in Science Should Learn to Code.
- The Trump administration seems to be deleting climate data (or at least stopping access to it).
- The Australian Medical Association is accusing celebrity chef (and paleo-evangelist) Pete Evans of giving unscientific medical advice that he’s not qualified to give.
- Oh, and Dr Jack Wrigley, my lecturer for Advanced Calculus, Computational Mathematics 1 and Partial Differential Equations, dropped by to see how the School of Mathematical Sciences’ new home was.
