00:47 pdurbin dataset or data set?
00:49 sivoais hehe, I keep on thinking about that when I write/review papers
00:50 sivoais if you do a search on Google
00:50 sivoais - "dataset" filetype:pdf ->  12,000,000 results
00:50 sivoais - "data set" filetype:pdf ->  10,400,000 results
00:51 pdurbin ooh. close. ngram says data set is the older, more established term
00:51 sivoais don't know if that is significantly different, but I would go with choose one and be consistent
00:51 * pdurbin likes consistency
00:51 sivoais yeah, I can understand that. Same with 'data base' and 'database', iirc
00:53 pdurbin that's what I hear
00:53 sivoais there should be a name for that effect in linguistics ;-)
00:54 pdurbin yeah, I bet there is
00:55 pdurbin this is a nice write up: http://grammar.ccc.commnet​.edu/grammar/compounds.htm
00:55 vicash whenever in doubt use camelCase..  dataSet  !
00:56 pdurbin lolz
00:57 pdurbin data-set
00:57 pdurbin is the word for to-day :)
01:00 sivoais research paper idea for someone: culturomics of compound word orthography ;-)
01:02 pdurbin :)
01:41 jberger_ joined #pdl
04:39 drrho joined #pdl
05:34 sivoais jberger: if you're around, I have a PR <https://github.com/perl4science​/perl4science.github.com/pull/3>
05:37 jberger_ oh cool
05:37 * jberger_ looks
05:38 jberger_ thanks
05:38 sivoais it's not much, but I thought it needed some "freshening" :-)
05:38 jberger_ let me see if I can remember how to deploy this
05:38 jberger_ I have been meaning to make a few posts myself
05:39 jberger_ including some links to my recent talks etc
05:39 jberger_ and if you know of any others let me know
05:40 sivoais I was looking for some from YAPC::NA 2013. I attended a bioinformatics one, but it hasn't been uploaded to the YAPCNA Youtube
05:41 sivoais You know, the Blekko one was a neat talk and kind of ties into a Big Data theme.
05:41 sivoais They have released their crawl data online too
05:42 jberger_ you take a look at anything else you would want to add while I reinstall all of the deployment chain
05:42 jberger_ (new box)
05:43 sivoais this material <http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/yapcna_2013.html>
05:43 sivoais Building a Web-Scale Search Engine with Perl
05:45 jberger_ I like the idea of including big data, but I worry about going too far into the web dev side of things
05:45 jberger_ feels like a slippery slope, but maybe I'm overthinking
05:47 jberger_ I'm so glad I made the howto page
05:47 jberger_ I made it mostly for me :-)
05:48 jberger_ I knew I would forget all the steps
05:48 sivoais yeah, I understand. But then again, people that work on clusters may want to know more about how Perl can scale. Perhaps it would fit better in a wiki/article specifically comparing parallelisation
05:48 jberger_ sure
05:48 jberger_ sounds like a good compromise
05:48 jberger_ want to write up a little blurb?
05:49 sivoais For a new page? OK, gimme a few and I'll put up a gist
05:49 jberger_ did you setup the site on your side?
05:50 jberger_ you could make a post
05:50 sivoais haha, no :-) I'll need to read that howto then
05:50 jberger_ its not so bad
05:50 sivoais I already have ruby, so...
05:51 jberger_ if you don't want to, I can build it to, but I'm always looking for contributors :-)
05:52 sivoais yeah, I need to learn Octopress. I want to pull in more people to the land of blogging
05:52 jberger_ I don't know if I'm 100% sold on it, but it does the job well enough I guess
05:54 jberger_ changes deployed \o/
05:54 jberger_ sivoais++
06:01 jberger_ I still get an unhealthy dose of pride when I see the site mascot
06:02 sivoais hehe
06:54 sivoais jberger: ok, PR is up <https://github.com/perl4science​/perl4science.github.com/pull/4> :-D
06:55 sivoais How to use these modules would make a good series of p4s advent calendar posts
07:54 lungching joined #pdl
11:40 pdurbin sivoais: Octopress or Jekyll?
16:22 sivoais pdurbin: I don't know what octopress does over jekyll actually
16:30 pdurbin sivoais: it's a layer on top
