Thankful for…

In no particular order or context. No personal stuff and by no means a complete list:

WordPress (like, duh).

icon_big

Wikipedia (default for looking up new stuff)

600px-Wikipedia-logo.svg

Wikis in general (great lab management tool. Don’t need LIMS)

Open Access Publishing and Creative Commons licensing.

cc.logo.circle

FLOSS licensing (90% of the software I use, and 100% of what I write)

opensource-logo

Science Bloggers (too numerous to link)

Science tweeters and FriendFeeders (too numerous to link. That’s how I keep up with things)

Facebook+Friendfeed-VS-Twitter

BLAST (Sometimes it feels like bioinformatics is should be renamed to blastology)

LaTeX (Wrote my dissertation in LaTeX, and never looked back)

latex_lion

OpenOffice.org (because not everyone uses LaTeX).

OpenOfficeLogo

CiteULike (Keeping my reference library up to date and in good order)

Citeulike_logo

Delicious (Keeping my bookmarks up to date and in good order)

delicious_logo

Gmail (because finding that document you sent me a month ago would be impossible otherwise)

super-gmail-logo

Google Scholar (For standing on the toes of Hobbits. Or something like that)

mainG

GIS (for blogging and making class slides)

Vim (because emacs blows)

vim-editor_logo

Python (ease & power)

python_logo_without_textsvg

Biopython (OK, conflict of interest here, since I contributed a bit)

Friendly colleagues (They certainly are!)

umured7

Good students (gotta make my lab page).

Goulash for dinner. Can’t stand oven Turkey.

Music. Especially the latest song that is going around in my head:

    I like the idea of sharing some of the things that make life (wow did I say life? meant work) easier ;) and agree with many of them. I’m just lacking novoseek! :D
