I have for over three years, been writing more than ever, my blog, well make that plural, blogs, my articles and just recently a number of papers.
I have, because if this been citing other papers as reference material, I use predominately Scholar.google.com as my first port of call, but have also use www.citeulike.org and Citeseerx, although Googles site seems to be a search of so many site offering papers, that I tend not to look much further than their findings.
But one recent new site is called, tweet2cite.com and with all the information being loaded up to twitter, it seems only right we should have a way to site relevant tweets, built by Ben Hedlund as a bit of a tutorial and research tool, its suddenly found a place in research and paper writing. See the excellent article in full on The Atlantic new site.
Here is an example of a tweet I have made on sound in design scays (scays). “New post: Architectural technologist – Sound and design http://t.co/SG6WonT0t2.” 27 Sep 2013, 07:07 UTC. Tweet. just search on the twitter site, click on the detail button for the right tweet, and copy the URL, place this in the search bar and you get a simple choice between MLA or API formats, I used MLA.
You al know my love of bothe Evernote and Post it notes, well the two have got together and with colour coordination of the post it note, and perhaps the elephant logo, sorted a way to track the note, I might have mentioned my love of the to do list on post it notes, so this is a marriage made in post it land. Read the full article on the Wall Street journal.
Well that's it for the weekend,
