hey @ostephens Another very successful run through OpenRefine at our web scraping and data clean up workshop here today. Very happy campers ;-) Import.io worked well for the scraping side and we covered URL tampering to parameterise scrapes (makes a change from cricket ball tampering which is much in the news here :-) ) and also the YouTube API for people who want You Tube comment threads which import.io can get hold of, but not that well.

That’s great @weaverbel. Do you have an exercise for the YouTube comments?

We have a new logo! data-lessons/librarycarpentry#15 Huge thanks to Tammy Nguyen for her work. I'll start integrating next week.
James being an idiot question: what should I transform .ai files into so as to not lose the vector goodness but be sure it is reusable as many places as possible? .svg?

AI or PS for print, SVG for web
