How do you procrastinate best?
I have a huge window in my office from which people can see my monitor, so obvious things like Facebook or Youtube don’t work for me. Writing this blog helps, and I can even claim that it has science-related content. But other people are much greater experts in doing fun stuff that is almost, but not completely work.
Take a look for example at An R function to analyze your Google Scholar Citations page by Jeff Leek at Simply Statistics. The code is easy enough and I could reproduce their intial results:
out = searchCite("Rafa Irizarry",pdfname="rafa_wordcloud.pdf")
and then even succeeded in extending their seminal analysis by
out2 = searchCite("Florian Markowetz",pdfname="flo_wordcloud.pdf")
And here is the result:
Neat! Another 15 minutes killed!
