Chasing the Cursor

A chat with Christos Kokosias about building web based word processors like Wax and Wax 2. Christos is very experienced in this and offers some insights into what it involves as well as some comment on using various frameworks such as Substance and ProseMirror.

It is a little technical, but if you aren’t technical and stay with it you will get quite some interesting info from what Christos has to say 🙂

Sittn Around the TeleFire

Setting up tests, then sitting around the virtual fire drinking wine and playing stupid card games 🙂 … humbled when i think these are the folks I work with. Good people, they work hard and do a great job. I’m very lucky to work with them and its sobering to think that in that small room there is a collection of folks making quite an impact on the state of publishing today. Pretty awesome.

And the Awesome Jure…

Jure Triglav, the lead PubSweet dev, does great presentations. He did one today at the start of the PubSweet meet to discuss how his role will change going forward… in typical Jure form it included this pic illustrating a standard measure of Jure as it is currently:

…and going forward :

…I think you get the idea from it pretty well! This one though, might be a little trickier if you weren’t there 😉

The Awesome PubSweet Community

Just a bunch of really cool, friendly people, changing publishing forever. Day one of the PubSweet community meeting in Cambridge UK (EBI). Presentations from Jure, EBI, Hindawi, eLife, Pre-Review, Digital Science. Lots of cool discussions. Nice folks. Also, our community is slowly diversifying which is super cool. Overall its getting less pink and many more women attending.
