I'm looking for literature (articles, blog posts, books) that covers "succession planning" for IT/sysadmin in activist groups. Like, for a volunteer group, what happens if your IT person just leaves? What are best practices so that the group isn't locked out of their web hosting etc (simply through lack of information rather than malice on the previous IT person's fault)

Which are the things you learned/are learning during your PhD, that you value the most?

I looked at a call for papers today that said that I couldn't submit something that was already published or accepted. Is that standard? I don't recall seeing it made explicit before.

What publications/journals do you all tend to get substantial, reliable information about politics beyond the drip-feed of media soundbites?

2 of my favourites are New Left Review
newleftreview.org/

and London Review of Books
lrb.co.uk/

Which others do I need to know?

Anyone know any good OER, open ed. resources, for college English comp? I'm pushing for my department to ditch overpriced textbooks & replacing them with free, trustworthy online items.

I wear a watch because I find it useful for keeping track of time in class. I wear that watch, which has to be wound and therefore sometimes lets me down, because it was my grandfather's.

I somehow set my watch an hour behind. There were surprisingly few bad consequences.

Does anyone know of any good histories (or theoretical analyses) of Italian far left politics in the 20th century? Specifically with a focus on terrorism, and the various uses thereof in civil and other conflicts.

I am interested in why (as seems to be the case) the Red Brigades and other organizations like them failed to achieve most, if not all, of their political aims, and acted in (what I now initially judge to be) self-undermining ways.

Hello World. :msn: I have started studying R on DataCamp and I will also be starting a post graduate course on Statistics in a University. Would anyone have any book recommendations or resources for someone trying to move into Data Science? I have a background in Business Intelligence but interested in Sociology :Boxplot:

Anyone got any favorite resources on early computer and/or internet history? Reading Paul Ceruzzi's work & looking for other avenues.

Scholar Social

Federated microblogging for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

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 @socrates@scholar.social 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.
