Reflecting on how amazing (and open) our Web network is now as I work on my Grav open education projects compared to my first public domain software I authored in the... wait for it... early 1990s.
While working for MotionWorks in Vancouver I cut a deal to have a HyperCard tool I built included as public domain software with a... wait for it... CD. So much change, but the same great feeling🙂

@hibbittsdesign Are there remnants of your tool from the 1990s still around?
I had played with livecode.com/products/communit but didn't have a project to really exercise it.
For content, I'm reinstalling (info at fed.wiki.org/view/welcome-visi , need to test my instance and blog about that.

@daviding Just a few snapshots🙂I've followed LiveCode (and have a license) but like you my work has not led to a real use of it.

@daviding Hi David, I meant to ask you how you knew of my earlier HyperCard work?🙂That early 90's work was my gateway into UI/UX design!

A Mastodon instance 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, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"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.
