This place isn't anything like twitter or facebook or instagram, its so much more fucking valuable than corporate, monetized social networks can ever possibly be.

I don't care if the fediverse disappears tomorrow, it already has done way more good in my life than a lifetime of corporate social networks could.

Happy day, new saree, makeup after ages. Feeling cute, won't delete. #IWear

Over on that other microblogging platform, John Baez points out how easy it is for mathematical physics crackpottery to get published in a prestigious-sounding pay-to-publish journal from an actually-prestigious publisher, Nature Scientific Reports: twitter.com/johncarlosbaez/sta

In the ensuing discussion, Flavio Nogueira reports that editors rejected papers only to see them published anyway: twitter.com/F_S_Nogueira/statu

Should we start treating Nature as a predatory publisher?
