Achintya Rao's PhD Starter Kit

Achintya Rao started a PhD last January, and in response to a request for advice from a friend, wrote a PhD Starter Kit that lists useful tools and practices. Most of them involve software of one kind or another, and it's interesting to compare the list to what we teach: if nothing else, it tells me that we really do need to figure out what to teach people about publishing science in the 21st Century.
