My Talk on (You Can’t)-Do-It-Yourself Publishing

Yesterday I joined the always-inspiring Tara McPherson from USC + the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture; Alberto Pepe, co-founder of Authorea; and Gregg Gordon, President of the Social Science Research Network, for a panel discussion at Columbia University on DIY publishing. I argued that DIY is, for the most part, a hubristic myth — and I offered instead “5 Lessons [about Publishing] on a Gradient of DIY-ness.” 

Here are my slides, which might or might not make sense without my notes — which I’m not going to share because they’re really sketchy. Sketchy as in “rough” — not “shady.”
