Shelf is Paolo Cardullo’s algorithmic project (2007 – date). Primarily, it shows how derivative is intellectual work by juxtaposing the work he has done with a clever WordPress plugin, Zotpress

This makes Shelf very different from a List of Publications or an academic CV. Zotpress uses an Application Programming Interface (API) to connect kiddingthecity to Paolo’s evolving Zotero database: little need to type anything here cool

Zotero is a Free and Open Source, cross-platform, reference manager that integrates with your browser and word processor – it offers now a ‘My Publications’ folder which is automatically published to your Zotero profile page, see mine here →→→ see my entire Zotero library

Kiddingthecity has been providing Open Access since 2007 under   Creative Commons →→→ see my projects on Open Science Framework →→→ check ORCID: they’ve done my metadata scraping for you: →→→ my full academic CV is here
