My post on LinkedIn about my interview experience in 1996 @amazon blew up. But a bunch of people asked me why I left after 3 yrs and boomeranged 14 years later. So I thought I’d tell the story here #AWS #amazon #techjobs

Everyone assumes that if you’re “successful” by some measure they seen you got there through a series of brilliant chess moves or you were an overnight #success. Occasionally that’s true, but far more often it looks like this

Let's start our #GlobalEChats on #music!

Among our #discussion topics: 1. #Stakeholders in music and what happens to them? 2. #Production of music 3. #Consumption of music 4. New #technology out there!
Firstly, let's talk about how scary #technology and #advancement can be to #music.

Some stats:
The US lost $12.5 billion a year in total sales due to pirated music.

71k jobs were lost; $2.7bn in annual earnings; $1.1bn of that would have been earned by the industry.

Now comes the hard part of being an academic #opensource developer moving into industry. 😢 I need volunteers to take over some of my #rstats packages. I'm hoping to retain some but also want to pass on a few.

If you're interested, please reach out on Github about any of...
{csvy} is a package for reading and writing metadata-enhanced CSV files that include a YAML header.

The format: csvy.org

The package: github.com/leeper/csvy (on CRAN but needs some updates to match the current csvy specification).
{colourlovers} is an API client for colourlovers.com

The package: cran.r-project.org/web/packages/c… (on CRAN but could use an XML -> xml2 conversion and a refresh to make sure it's still up to date).
