@bonstewart wanted to make an introduction to @cjwillcock He is an awesome developer and WordPress guy from PE who has gotten quite involved in the #IndieWeb as late. Figured you could point him to the rich history and people of PEI doing our kind of work in #OpenPedagogy

Lost in Math

... the negative LHC results for popular speculative models are now in. What effect will these have on those who have devoted decades to studying such models?

All thanks to a quirky bit of software produced to alleviate the pain of a tiny subset of a very small audience.
