the academic sandbox
A zillion years ago (December, actually), I asked for suggestions for a domain name
for a server used to do all my scholarly-themed projects. I described it as a sandbox, for academic stuff. The always-brilliant Pilgrim/Heretic
came up with the suggestion "academicsandbox.com" because, you know, duh!
I ended up getting it, and I've been happily using it for several months—but not open to the public or even with anything more than a placeholder page. In other words, no reason for anyone besides myself and the project collaborators/owners to access the thing.
Then along came the WRT folks
and their post about Citation Footers for Academic Blogging
, and so we whipped up a preliminary release of a WordPress plugin. It lives in the sandbox, and is available to the public (but I stress the "preliminary" part of it...we'll probably be tweaking the 0.3.x release of the plugin the next few days) so I really had
to put some content up there.
So now I have...
- the sandbox contents
- the sandbox blog
- the sandbox blog "about" page
I'm serious about what it says on the "about" page re: projects percolating in your brains. Just holler. We'll chat.
