Diving into the new article by @openreflections & @Samuelmoore this morning, which is focused on the labor university-based academics put into publishing as service work. They provide important pushback on arguments for the further transactionalization of this work (recognition thru service metrics or direct compensation from pubs). They also show how central scholar-led publishing initiatives are to the wider politics of academic work.

A key insight from Marten: a very important part of the HNR community consists of historians, and more precisely people who do not define themselves as *digital* humanists or *digital* historians but just historians, and who need networks to get the job done.

The digital/computational is not necessarily a career path, it sometimes comes to you whether you want it or not, and it does not define you even if you embrace it for a time.

Can anyone recommend a firefox plugin that improves the experience of searching through browsing history?

@adr Is this responding to something specific? I've been offline all day

Has anyone written on gendered aspects of discourse on open peer-review / replication? i.e. active v. supportive roles, rigorous/rational/systematic v. flimsy/self-serving critique, revolutionary v. docile status

@waltcrawford This is a lot of data, but I'd love to see some solid interpretations of what's going on based on these observations. Are there any plans for this, or are they published elsewhere?

@ArchaeoIain @sarae I agree, and in this case its especially troubling because the point of the paper is to convey a personal experience. But for other reasons I don't really want to get into here I'm just gonna bite the bullet and comply. Maybe I'll post a pre-review pre-print with a note indicating the differences, depending on the journal's policy on that sorta thing

@timelfen Reminds me of how the internet explorer icon was "the internet" for many people (and still is)

@sarae Oh totally, but this is another level. I have a buddy who's really into Michael Masters' work so I've been hearing third-hand about the slide from a half-skeptical believer's perspective too. Just enough to make him seem credible at first, then recalling his abduction experience with a strong jesus complex, and now this templeton foundation funded rant....

Seems I was mistaken about the rhetoric of openness, but still fascinating to see the corruption of seemingly legitimate researchers and institutions in real time (Harvard's centre for quantitative social science being co-opted by right wing think tanks, their authors serving on the journal's editorial board, a seemingly legit anthropologist veering off into time travel fantasies, etc)

So is the Human Flourishing Program based at Harvard's Institute for Quantitative Social Science legit? Looking at their main research interests and the backgrounds of their staff (religion and the family, religion and the workplace, determinants of spiritual purpose, among other things) it seems to be a christian right-wing think tank
