@socrates maybe you've addressed this before so sorry if I've missed it, do DOI links go against the no shortened links clause of the community standards?
Maybe in all of our spare time (hahaha) we could teach masto to use the free CrossRef API to look up a DOI and provide the summary automatically? Small instances should be able to play nice at least.
@drb Oh I understand & appreciate your identification of that tension in the policy!
It also led me to start thinking about how much user tracking may be associated with DOIs. More awareness is always a good thing.
And I didn't know about The Winnower before.
So today has already been very productive, although my comps prep hasn't gone anywhere yet.
On that note: *disappears for a while*
