I’ve been tidying up my online presence, RSS feeds and so on for the new academic year. I’ll be moving my life sciences posts to a professional account on Google Plus, http://gplus.to/drsalt In some ways this is the wrong way round as my PhD is not in Botany, but it helps dealing with students. Another AoB Blog contributor on Google Plus is Alan Cann, who is a lot more active there than me.
One of the things I noticed is linkrot in my RSS feed. I’ve only just caught up with moving Google Reader to look to follow the Phytofactor who is now at http://phytophactor.fieldofscience.com/.
Another useful thing is that I now get timely reminders of other use posts like Introduction to R Statistical Software: Application to Plant BReeding on the Plant and Crop Science Blog. Francisco Fuentes has posted a video on the stats package by Dr. Heather Merk.
