What writers think makes good gay representation Show more
Tragic gay has his tragic gay research taken by Starfleet, tragically
His tragic gay bf likes tragic operas (Kasseelian prima donnas tragically kill themselves after one performance)
His tragic gay bf is tragically trapped in the mushroom dimension, but—tragedy!—even after being saved they don't get to be happy
Plot twist: An even more powerfully tragic lesbian uses her powers of tragedy to give them unsolicited relationship advice
Fellow scholars, I'm looking for a way/journal/portal to publish methodological details and results from a structured literature search (not a fully qualified literature review) - open access is a must, open peer review would be nice. Topic is biomedical / medical /health informatics with a focus on laboratory systems. Any ideas or recommendations? #question #academia

Digital shadows, internet privacy, pedagogy Show more
Pedagogy success this week: Using resources from the Tactical Tech Collective, I had students chart their own digital shadows based on one day of logging their net activity. They then read & translated the privacy policies of the companies they relied on most. Students gained real insight into how they interact with tech companies. Some even deleted apps like Tinder or Snapchat. Tactical Tech does great work: https://tacticaltech.org/

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
