Pinned toot

Hello everyone,
I'm a designer and researcher from France, living and working in London for over 10 years. I'm currently writing up my PhD by practice which is about algorithms, prediction, and diagrams. I'm interested in the digital humanities, media archaeology, and critical/speculative creative practice.

I'm keen to try (and potentially build?) alternatives to predatory services like and researchgate so this is me jumping in!

Hi does anyone here use #revealjs for presentations? I guess this might be more of a general #nodejs or #npm question but: how do you set up a central Reveal install and then store your markdown presentations in various places on disk? My tests so far involved cloning the whole Reveal repo for one presentation, and that just seems silly to replicate each time.

The CHI paper format [24,56] takes the worst aspects from all referencing systems [2,14,67,89,103,243] and blends them into a special [45] kind of engineering soup [5,14,57].

the papers have now re-appeared, just as mysteriously as they had been taken down. No clue as to which TOS were breached 🤷‍♂️.

(This wasn't my doing btw, whole proceedings were put on Figshare by conference organisers under CC license. We did give consent though)

I guess this why you should not host your conference papers on Figshare.
(I wonder what happens now that all the DOIs point to them)
