I attended two meeting last week, both about #OpenScience: first the Beilstein Open Science symposium, followed by the Google Summer of Code Summit. Great meetings!

a quick update on our #openscience feedback on #plan_S 

If you find Open Science more important than Open Access, then read this:

after data citations, software citations are starting to get serious too now, it seems. Results by the Zenodo team: blog.zenodo.org/2019/01/10/201

Mind blown. Just found out about this "font" that takes advantage of subpixel rendering to be absurdly small: msarnoff.org/millitext/

(Quotes added since the color information is critical; i.e., it's not simply an outline like typical typefaces.)
