The benefits of ORCID

I attended an ANDS webinar on ORCID today: Linking people to their research using ORCID. One of the speakers was Dr Laurel Haak, Executive Director of ORCID (USA).

ORCID "provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized."

ANDS have some info about ORCID on their website too.

Here is a similar presentation to today's ANDS one (which will probably go up on the ANDS site soon), from Laurek Haak, posted recently to SlideShare:

Video on Keynote for iPad

At our next session with the faculty learning advisors I'll be showing Keynote, which I have just downloaded. I've been looking around for some videos to help me get started using Keynote on the iPad and found this one, which is pretty good.

"You call it desert, we used to live there" Jimmy Pike

If you are in Perth and wandering by the University of Western Australia area in Nedlands drop by the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery and see the newly opened exhibition of the some of the wonderful works of the late Aboriginal artist, Jimmy Pike.

 Jimmy Pike’s Artlines: You call it desert, we used to live there.

Last night we went to the opening and I will definitely go back again when it is not so crowded to take another look and take advantage of the many events over the next few months while the exhibition runs. The works are felt tipped pen drawings and brilliantly coloured.

The late artist, Jimmy Pike, was a Walmajarri man from the Great Sandy Desert of WA whose family were "first contact" and lived a traditional hunter-gatherer life before coming into contact with white people in the 1950s. What an amazing and terrifying encounter that must have been. We can't begin to imagine.

The exhibition has been organised by UWA's Berndt Museum and it runs til September 15, 2012.
