I'd love to see a book written on getting started with the indieweb, aimed at people who don't have much experience with computers. Part course on tech literacy, part how-to guide on how to escape the grips of big tech companies. Anyone know if something like that already exists? If not, I'm kind of interested in writing one, so if you are too, send me a message.

Boosts appreciated, and also tagging this in #askfedi

SCImago uses the #Scopus database, which is said to have a better coverage of engineering than natural #science items.

The "This task I had to do anyway turned out hard enough for its own paper" and "we scanned some undergrads" are spot on also for #LIS/library science articles.

So... I'm turning this into an ongoing thread about #LongCovid.

2. "Pandemics disable people — the history lesson that policymakers ignore"

"Influenza, polio and more have shown that infections can change lives even decades later. Why the complacency over possible long-term effects of COVID-19?"

"From the beginning of this pandemic, people with disabilities understood that the disease would target them and would swell their ranks."
