Jeffrey’s Twitter Updates for 2011-07-14

  • Alas, have to run again, but glad to stop by to say hello and learn a touch in the process. Until later, #phdchat colleagues. #
  • @SueFolley @LBA_OX12 I started to do the same; finally found a project management application I like on the Mac #phdchat #
  • @respros I keep and submit my notes into a university system; keeps everybody honest. I do at times struggle with agendas up front #phdchat #
  • @protoscholar @SueFolley Do you recount anyplace how you managed that in only 6 months? #phdchat #
  • @protoscholar @respros @LBA_OX12 Do you only talk when you plan an agenda of things to talk about? #phdchat #
  • @SarahR_H Nice to make at least the last few moments; the #phdchat conversations are so many now that it surpasses the Tweet stream memory #
  • @ClaretCarly @SueFolley Then again, doing original work takes time! #phdchat #
  • Able to come in at the tale-end of #phdchat #
  • @torresk @gconole I am coming to London the first week of September; perhaps then? #
  • Reading an interesting inter-library loan – "Transformative learning and online education: Aesthetics, dimensions, and concepts" #phdchat #
  • @torresk @gconole Ooh, a meetup. How lucky for you both! #
  • @lizith @naomi_jacobs What was the topic? Can you share one morsal for thought? #phdchat #
  • @hummingbird604 @thirduniversity Cheap to run? #phdchat #
  • @Janshs Phew!! I was literally shaking in the chair while receiving the needle, just waiting to jump with pain. #
  • @mkooleady I was testing my semi-structured interview questions. Useful feedback. Am working on a blog post to trace it #phdchat #
  • @mrgunn Yes, I heard about that; thank you. I am beginning to play around with this now. That was the one overwhelming need I had #phdchat #
  • @ASBO_Allstar @cambgirl Yes, I get a copy from the university as well. I only wish they also provided a CAQDAS app, too! #phdchat #
  • @cambgirl @ASBO_Allstar Yes, we have all had these conversations before; some things are never fully finalized, are they? 😉 #phdchat #
  • I just went to NYU to replace my id. Seems the entire university is getting new id cards. Note to colleagues – don't wait, no lines now. #
  • @ASBO_Allstar @cambgirl You are fortunate, as linking databases via cloud backups is frought with potential problems #phdchat #
  • @ASBO_Allstar I just assume I will have import problems that need manual cleaning. The other functionality meets my needs #phdchat #
  • @ASBO_Allstar Alas, I have not experienced import setting anywhere that is easy and accurate, #Papers2 included #phdchat #
  • @ASBO_Allstar @cambgirl Not sure I am following what you mean. I do have #Endnote in my office, though even their it is fickle #phdchat #
  • @cambgirl I know #Mendeley did a lot of work addressing duplicates, but it was such a problem for over a year I lost patience #phdchat #
  • @cambgirl To be fair, I do use #Mendeley to transfer files between locations, but the duplication issue did me in #phdchat #
  • @cambgirl Yes! #Papers2 plays nice with #Scrivener http://t.co/ENzKrge #phdchat #
  • @cambgirl #Mendeley requires a Word plug-in. My experience with plug-ins is that they lead to problems with frequent Word patches #phdchat #
  • @cambgirl I do not write in Word, due in part to Word's frequent file corruptions when fields are used #phdchat #
  • @lizgloyn @qui_oui Alas, no matter the occassion, fees never seem to go down. We get used to their increasing, and thus they do. #
  • @shelzangel Took time as I had to re-enter my references again, but now it is up and running, it is an integral part of my workflow #phdchat #
  • @cambgirl This means #Papers2 plays with #Scrivener and any other application without using fields or app plug-ins #phdchat #
  • @cambgirl #Papers2 has Manuscripts that allows you to search for citations and insert them, already formatted, into any application #phdchat #
  • @aeratcliffe You are missing the best pasrt of #Papers2 The Manuscript citation function is what separates it from the competition #phdchat #
  • @qui_oui I need a job like that. #
  • @lindathestar @merry30 @ai1sa I used to use #Endnote and then to #Mendeley and now #Papers2 Each time 1 less challenge to manage #phdchat #
  • @qui_oui True, though the public institutions are increasingly out of reach as well; just no funding either. #
  • @Lemness Indeed, all sorts of things seem possible when in the latter part of an all-nighter! #
  • @merry30 @ai1sa @lindathestar Agreed about those #Endnote messes. So simple in concept, though tedious in implementation #phdchat #
  • @cristinacost Alas, the concept is simpler than it seems, though still not sure why such hubbub about it. #
  • @merry30 @lindathestar @ai1sa Ahh. Seems there is no magic bullet. Alas, it is a complex issue we all have to face. #phdchat #
  • @Lemness Goodness, I cannot fathom that level of narrow interest. Perhaps focus is a better way to consider it. #
  • @qui_oui Well, that is still more than 50%+ less than the US, so on the way! #
  • @aeratcliffe Ahh, interesting. I do not use either, so no words of wisdom or experience to share. #
  • @qui_oui Ahh, welcome to US #highered as well! #
  • @Lemness Is it worth to give your life to change only one thing? #
  • I just had a second person agree to engage in my pilot, which is now scheduled for next week. After that, ready to begin! #phdchat #
  • @aeratcliffe What is wrong with using your MBP for everything? #
  • @merry30 @lindathestar @ai1sa How do you navigate and manage references without an app? #phdchat #
  • @lindathestar @merry30 @ai1sa I used to agree, though #Endnote is more hassle than it is worth. Now thrilled with #Papers2 #phdchat #
  • @aeratcliffe Too bad. May Windows treat you better than it treats everybody else! #
  • @ai1sa Yes, I agree that changing at this point may not be the best idea. #
  • @merry30 Looks like an interesting piece of research. In a way, it is potentially related to what I am about to work on http://bit.ly/lAFxSf #
  • @ai1sa Ahh. The challenge with #Endnote in Word (as opposed to #Scrivener or the like) is that you cannot do a proper count until the end. #
  • @aeratcliffe I tried this at first with a PC netbook and MBP, and become even more anxious than I am now. Stopped using my Asus as a result. #
  • @merry30 Ahh, I must have missed the research purpose on the survey opening-page, though I can no longer access it, so cannot check it. #
  • @merry30 Ahh. I was not entirely sure what the criteria were for it. #
  • @aeratcliffe Goodness, working between 2 systems may become a nightmare in usability and file storage. #
  • @Janshs The dentist must be a miracle-worker with pain. Perhaps her seeing me shake helped, but now waiting for the onlay to be built. #
  • @merry30 @lindathestar @ai1sa If they use fields, such as #Endnote and fields in Word, then they may not be read by the app #phdchat #
  • @merry30 @lindathestar @ai1sa Don't these quotes depend on the reference management application? #phdchat #
  • @merry30 Can you talk more about your study? Looked at it, though did not quite grasp who or what you are looking for beyond "men" #phdchat #
  • @jennifermjones Sounds like you are describing a threshold concept #phdchat #
