      The idea behind this is great, but the hurdles for supporting dozens of publishing specifications can be awfully daunting. Where do we draw the line?

    2. So instead of Publishing on my Own Site and Syndicating Elsewhere, I plan to just Publish and Participate.

      The easiest publishing (syndication) workflow of all.

    1. On September 23rd, 1871, Nast drew Boss Tweed and his three Tammany Ring' associates - New York Mayor Oakey Hall, Peter Sweeny and Richard Connolly - as a group of vultures on a stormy mountain ledge squatting on a body marked 'New York'. They were shown picking over bones with labels such as 'Rent Payer', 'Liberty', 'Law', 'Tax Payer', 'Justice' and 'Suffrage' and above their heads could be seen a lightning bolt about to start a landslide that would sweep them away.

      Tweed would overprice projects he promised to finish for poor immigrant taxpayers, just so he could pocket the money and gain power and control over the immigrants' votes and politics.

    2. A staunch Republican himself (and a Protestant), Nast - together with Harper's Weekly - campaigned vociferously against William Marcy Tweed, the corrupt leader or 'boss' of Tammany Hall (named after its headquarters on East 14th Street), the political machine which ran New York City's Democratic Party. A former New York State Senator, Tweed and his Irish Catholic associates had by January 1869 taken control of the city, and were looting millions of dollars of taxpayers' money by 'invoice padding', bribes, kickbacks, intimidation and other means. It was said that construction of the Brooklyn Bridge could not proceed until Tweed had got a seat on the construction company's board, and a particular scandal was the massive overspending on the construction of the New York County Courthouse (begun in 1861), which finally cost more than the USA's purchase of Alaska in 1867.

      Nast, being Republican during this time, supported the freedom and equality of former slaves. Nast was also probably concerned with the failing economy and banks around the country, which would explain why he abhorred Tweed and his practices. Tweed was a Democrat seeking power; he did not agree with the equality of former slaves and white men, and because of urbanization and industrialization, he was most likely attaining power and money, profiting from the two.

    1. The impact of Nast's cartoons and the campaign by journalists at Harper's Weekly, and later the New York Times, led directly to a change of leadership at Tammany Hall and most of the Ring were eventually voted out of office. Tweed himself was sentenced to twelve years in prison, but was released after a year and then arrested again in an attempt to recover $6 million in stolen funds.

      I think that it's very interesting how a drawing/cartoon can be so powerful and have such an impact that it brings upon changes.

    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2020, November 18). @danielmabuse yes, we all make mistakes, but a responsible actor also factors the kinds of mistakes she is prone to making into decisions on what actions to take: I’m not that great with my hands, so I never contemplated being a neuro-surgeon. Not everyone should be a public voice on COVID [Tweet]. @SciBeh. https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1329002783094296577

    1. Although I'm starting to regret even posting this because I feel like it cheapens what we've accomplished.
    2. But I suppose it comes with the territory when I consider even publishing an article like this. I was sitting on this one for weeks and wasn't sure I was going to publish it until I found myself trying to defend why I didn't just give up before I started.

    1. What Is The Primordial Reference For The Phrase 'Publish Or Perish'?

      Garfield, Eugene. 1996 “What Is The Primordial Reference For The Phrase ‘Publish Or Perish’?” The Scientist 10:12. 11.

    1. Did you know“Publish or perish” has been worrying researchers for 60 years Publish. Or. Perish. These three little words describe the constant pressure on academics to publish their research and make their name. But this is not a new phenomenon; these three words have been keeping researchers awake for over 60 years. The phrase was coined in 1950 by Kimball C. Atwood III, a geneticist at Columbia University (1). Although never written down, it struck a chord with researchers, and, so legend has it, it was just a month before the phrase found its way back to Atwood, in an address given by a visiting lecturer. Despite the long history of “Publish or Perish”, it is likely to ring around the halls of the world’s research institutes as long as competition among researchers for limited funds and positions continues to intensify. Reference (1) Sojka, R.E. and Mayland, H.F. (1991) Driving Science With One Eye On the Peer Review Mirror

      Publish or perish origins

    1. The phenomenon has become a focus of academic research itself, as a search for the phrase in Scopus retrieved 305 documents published on the topic from 1962 to date. On average, more than 20 articles per year were published on the topic over the past 5 years (2009 – 2013), with 37 articles alone published in 2013.

      publish or perish is the focus of lots of study.

    2. A 1996 article by Eugene Garfield (3) traces the phrase back to at least 1942,
