How are other folks with static sites handling comments? Trying to get off Disqus… #webdev

I had high hopes for Far Cry 5. The original premise was bold, but apparently they just couldn't bring themselves to actually exploring it - waypoint.vice.com/en_us/articl

The Guardian has an article on evocative LARP that explores political problems, including Haluat hisar, which I participated in - theguardian.com/world/2018/mar

Mastodon is a better replacement for Twitter than Facebook, but glad to see that people wanting to are finding better options - washingtonpost.com/news/the-sw

Liking Mastodon, but still kinda stuck on ? Try Twidere, it can handle both at the same time.

The Verge has a thorough article on Elbakyan, who runs Sci-Hub, open access and academic publishing in general - theverge.com/2018/2/8/16985666

Here is the final result using the technique shown in the MWE I posted earlier:

First draft of a visualisation I have created for my PhD thesis. It shows the relative influence of scientific fields on one another and which journals are most influential within their fields. See how highly ranked (or otherwise) your favourite field/journal is! 🎓

Not completely finished but all core functionality is there. Feedback is very welcome!

Consider becoming a doctoral student if...

You liked the constant financial insecurity of being a student but thought that the academic requirements just weren't difficult enough for you.
