switching reference software If you know the academic me, you know I love, and regularly tout, using Zotero to manage my ever-growing bibliography. There is one problem with Zotero, however, that I just cannot move past: its inability to use relative links for linking to files. update: I edited the following paragraph to clear up some confusion pointed out in a posted comment. I should also point out that on Zotero's website, there are numerous posts from users requesting relative links, but with absolutely no reply from Zotero.

8 must-reads detail how to verify information in real-time, from social media, users Over the past couple of years, I’ve been trying to collect every good piece of writing and advice about verifying social media content and other types of information that flow across networks. This form of verification involves some new tools and techniques, and requires a basic understanding of the way networks operate and how people use them. It also requires many of the so-called old school values and techniques that have been around for a while: being skeptical, asking questions, tracking down high quality sources, exercising restraint, collaborating and communicating with team members.

how to make both work for you So yesterday I posted about how I switched over to JabRef reference software, mainly because it allows relative links, but also because it easily lets you see and edit the BibTex entry, which as a LaTeX user, is very helpful. There are two things JabRef does not really do that Zotero does that I find really useful: 1) Zotero can easily capture reference information from a variety of website formats, even if no Bibtex or RIS entry is provided

Inside Cyrus Highsmith’s New Book, a Typographic Classic in the Making Inside Paragraphs: Typographic Fundamentals By Cyrus Highsmith Font Bureau, 2012 Cyrus Highsmith, senior designer at the Boston-based Font Bureau, has written a short book on the basics of typography that, despite its odd approach—or maybe because of it—promises to become a standard text in introductory typography courses. The book, to be formally released next month during TypeCon 2012, in Milwaukee, is called Inside Paragraphs: Typographic Fundamentals, an accurate yet prosaic title that belies its charms. It is a simple book with a simple premise, which means that it is actually a very deep book. In a spread from "Inside Paragraphs," Highsmith shows the effect of justification on wordspacing.
