Recently updated table of the Editoria Roadmap. We may miss the 1 March deadline but just by a couple of weeks (upgrade took a little longer than expected). Congratulations to Alexis, Giannis and Christos for all the awesome work so far!
The Coko community of innovative, forward-thinking publishing organizations building the tools of our dreams have collectively had an auspicious start in the new year! For example, Europe PMC plan wide rollout of their full, end-to-end manuscript submission workflow using PubSweet technology, later

If you are in search of a full stack dev (located in NZ) give me a call. I have a very talented buddy that has just completed some projects and is looking for something interesting to do. I highly recommend them….thanks!
My house in New Zealand is in the beautiful Northland, best place in the world. It’s an amazing place – first place, for example, to be settled by Maori, and then also by Pakeha (white people). I’ve had a number of amazing things happen to me in Northland. I’m not a spiritual chap but stuff happens in Northland and you can’t help but notice. This week, for example, by buddy Pania was at the house (I’m in SF at the moment) and took this photo of the harbor below my place…showing clearly a ‘koru’…
You can see other images of koru here to get the idea. Koru signals ‘new beginnings’ which for many reasons is true for this week for me more than any. Amazing.
Until recently I was planning on spending most of my time in NZ. However things change and I’m going to keep on with my apartment in San Francisco as I’m expecting to spend quite a bit of time here this year.
Today eLife went live with their new submission wizard built on PubSweet… this following the introduction of Hindawi’s journal system, also built on PubSweet, in December… makes for an awesome couple of months! 🙂
Awesome… just got these online…old (but cleaned up) telephone crossarms. will use them for flooring in the outside workspace… 62 of them. Now working out shipping from Wellington 🙂
Sorry to impose this on you, but I am addicted to this band – Die Antwoord (translates to ‘the answer’ in Afrikaans). Here is their most family friendly vid… which, interestingly, is made with Roger Ballen – a South African photographer whose exhibition I saw in Sweden a few years ago. It was an awesome exhibition.
