  1. The Why Axis - discussion of important visualizations on the web. This is one I think a lot of people know about, but it is new to me. (via Thomas L. – p.s. I’m @leekgroup on Twitter, not @jtleek). 
  2. This paper says that people who “engage in outreach” (read: write blogs) tend to have higher academic output (hooray!) but that outreach itself doesn’t help their careers (boo!).
  3. It is a little too late for this year, but next year you could make a Valentine with R.
  4. An email charter (via Rafa). This is pretty similar to my getting email responses from busy people. Not sure who scooped who. I’m still waiting for my to-do list app. Mailbox is close, but I still want actions to be multiple choice or yes/no or delegation rather than just snoozing emails for later.
  5. Top ten reasons not to share your code, and why you should anyway.
