How to archive my tweets?

[UPDATE]

So, it looks like IFTTT deleted my recipe, to avoid drawing Twitters wrath on themselves. I will mail the customer support and ask, what happened…

tldr: IFTTT recipe: Archive my tweets to dropbox!

Even though I am a happy Twitter user, it makes me feel very uncomfortable that I cannot easily access all my old tweets. For that reason I used IFTTT and Dropbox for the last several months to archive all the new tweets, so that I have access to those at least. But after Twitter forbid IFTTT to directly access the tweets, this solution was no longer working. But as clever users found out, Twitter is still providing a RSS feed containing all publicly sent tweets  for each user.

As a result it was very easy to get the whole pipe line working again. If you want to try it youself just use my public IFTTT recipe: Archive my tweets to dropbox! You only have to replace my Twitter handle with yours…

Btw: Please share if you have other useful recipes!

Black Hole

When collabgraph divides by 0
from @nelas

I was stunned to see that more than 600 people had tried collabgraph in the past months. This is a huge number considering my expectations and its niche use case. So thank you for taking the time and leaving feedback!

Developing collabgraph and taking part in mendeley’s binary battle was a great experience. And without your support I wouldn’t have made it into the TOP10. I am especially grateful to all, who voted for me in the final vote!

And these black holes are created by papers with hundreds of authors, which is apparently quite common in the genome research society.

Computer Vision News

I created Computer Vision News (CVN), an aggregator for all the events and academic vacancies within the field of Computer Vision, ImageAnalysis, and Medical Image Analysis. You can also follow it on Twitter @compvisionnews!

At the moment I use following sources:

Please write me, if you have sources I should add. I am happy to extend CVN.
I prefer just to have the headlines in my Twitter timeline, where they don’t clutter my mail client or my feedreeder. But use it as you like! Yeah! for more choices!

Twitter

Hi,

this post is for all the readers, who use rss to read this blog.

I have started writing tweets in the last weeks. I mainly post links to interesting pages, but with a slightly broader focus than the blog. Yesterday I posted for instance this comic http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2009-12-09/

There are three ways to read my tweets:

Also feel free to look through the people I follow at twitter, maybe you find something interesting.
