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 academia.edu and researchgate so this is me jumping in!


I'm not sure about scoring and I personally think scoring is very subjective. I wonder if research papers can be better organized. like wikipedia articles or knowledge maps. this helps researches in many ways, finding collaborations, reducing redundancy, finding reviewers etc. but also helps grad students new to the field learn the history of what's done in a field, where the field is and what interesting things can be done in the future. knowledge maps for research!

@jkanche yes absolutely agree! less scoring and more putting things (and people) in productive relation to each other! I've been thinking about a tool that would map all references used in a given paper, and their references, and theirs, etc returning the 'roots' that this piece of research builds on. It should be possible with something like Web of Science but haven't got around to it yet!
