Unpaywall is a handy little open source project, available to use as a browser extension, which makes it easier to find open access copies of journal papers.
I just thought I'd share this here for those who may need it. I find it very useful!
Good morning, newbies. Lifehacker has a Beginners Guide to Mastodon post up today.
a pretty good collection of current/potential issues with Mastodon: https://twitter.com/adrienneleigh/status/1030213888850030592?s=21
@scottnesbitt Loved the Ellis quote!
Fun fact: while you may only have heard of Mastodon recently, it's been around for a while! @Gargron registered the domain 'mastodon.social' in March 2016, and hundreds of people have contributed to its development since then.
Let's take a moment to say thank you to the thousands of people who have contributed to Mastodon's development and community over the last two and a half years! We wouldn't be where we are without you!
While I'm thinking about reports:
The moderators on mastodon.social are ONLY moderators on mastodon.social. We don't have any authority over the behavior of users on other instances.
If you're reporting a user on another Mastodon instance, please remember to check the box that sends your report on to the remote instance's administrators.
I know Middle Class Rut isn't here, but I love their new album: https://www.albumism.com/reviews/middle-class-rut-gutters
@zacanger I lost $15 by the dumpster!
@scottnesbitt one day in and I'm already adjusting!
@lightweight also the price of civility! I've had more nicer conversations today than I have in the past 4 years on twitter
@lightweight just trying to find people to follow. The fact that it's tough to search. different people on different instances but showing up in the same timeline. it's a lot to process!
Figuring out Mastodon:
@greg_harvey Trust the process!
@raghukamath so nice to be here!
@K_REY_C it's much nicer for now. actual conversations rather than pithy rejoinders
