Tracking my eyes

I got a very nice email the other day thanking me for being a clearinghouse for e-research information. I'm not quite sure I am that, but just in case I've become it without noticing…

What I read in the area and think is worthwhile enough to keep around ends up in a few places, all of which have RSS feeds:

Happy to share these, and also happy to start up a Zotero group if anyone else is interested in contributing items thereto!

(By the way, one rather annoying thing about the Zotero feed—I almost always save copies of the item along with the item record, and Zotero dumps both into the RSS feed, which from the consuming end looks like a lot of unnecessary duplication. I apologize for this, and wish Zotero would fix it.)

Sometimes it's worthwhile to let my "toblog" folder on del.icio.us marinate a bit. Posts I recently ran across on two different blogs illuminate the same point so well that they deserve their own post here! Off the Map offers Huffman's Three Principles for Data Sharing, which are really principles…
There's a string of "day in the life" librarian posts happening, so I thought I'd throw one in. Today wasn't a typical day, I suppose… but I don't really have typical days, especially these days. 6:00-ish am: Wake up, kick the cat off the bed accidentally, get out of bed. 6:20 am: Dressed and…
A common problem adduced in e-research (not just e-research, but it does come up quite a bit here) is expertise location, both local and global. You need a statistician. Or (ahem) a metadata or digital-preservation expert. Or a researcher in an allied area. Or a researcher in a completely different…
Lively welcome here at ScienceBlogs, I must say. Two posts, a soft launch, and eighteen comments already! The comments have turned up a question deserving of further discussion. On my first post, commenter Jim Lund said: E-research? Why make a distinction? Today there's only e-research and…

Please try appending /top to the end of your feed URL in order to include only top-level (parent) items. We may also add more configuration options to feeds, too. Any requests?

Oh! That works! Thank you! (I do think it should be the default behavior, though.)

I don't have any other ideas off the top of my head, but I will definitely let you know if I come up with anything.

We were actually just discussing the possibility of making /top the default behavior. Glad to hear everything's working now.
