RE: Some thoughts about STEM on Steem - bonus: a complete introduction to particle physics

in #steemstem4 years ago

Well said @lemouth, there are many things we as scientists can do for Steem. Personally I believe that immortalizing technical information on the blockchain where there's no censorship involved would result in the creation of a free library available for all internet users, which would in turn promote true justice and freedom of information and at the same time attract more and more investors in the Steem ecosystem.

Of course, as you rightly pointed out, engagement is essential. Caring for one another is what we all should do in all aspects of life anyway. I also strongly agree that tutorials and lectures in the form of blogs would serve the community's best interests.

Regarding your lecture notes, thanks for sharing this as I've missed out on many of those.

Ps. I think the 3rd link (The Higgs Boson) doesn't work.

In physics, we have the arxiv for this. I would keep steem as a very good medium for communicating about science, but I won't use it for publishing actual research paper. You need something made explicitly for scientists (check scipost for instance) that is more controlled. Otherwise, how to distinguish the good from the bad? Who is deciding what is good and what is bad? Blog posts are one thing, but actual research is another thing.

PS: Thanks! I will fix it immediately!
