Friday Links

1. Giant Tortoises & Baobab trees

2. Is research blogging worth it?

I always marvel at how, if I write something nifty, I can get 1,000s of visitors in a day (if I make it to Hacker News, I get 1,000s per hour). But, scientifically, i’m going after much smaller numbers.

(And it will be impossible to even know, let alone measure, most of the effect. If someone googles and finds my Monday post on extended depth of field in Python and a year down the line cites the mahotas paper, it will be great; but I won’t know about it.)

3. Software engineering in academia
