SteemSTEM Distilled #80

3년 전

Welcome to the 80th issue of SteemSTEM Distilled, a curation effort by the members of the @steemstem team.

SteemSTEM aims to make Steem a better place for STEM, a task which we believe crucial for the long-term development of the blockchain. Our goals consist in invigorating and inspiring the minds of a community of STEM aficionados on Steem, targeting on the long-term the upgrade of SteemSTEM as a real platform for science communication. In the meantime, this goes through the support of quality, interesting and cutting-edge STEM content.

For more details, a recent update on the SteemSTEM project is available here. If you want to discuss with us, please do not hesitate to join the steemSTEM discord server.

In order to support the best STEM content on Steem, our team scours the blockchain and read more than a couple of thousands of STEM-related posts per week. We hence support about 200 of these posts, and present in this distilled our top 8 handpicked choices for the last Thursday-Sunday period.

Monday - Wednesday

A Life Story #2 – Prokaryotes, eukaryotes and other stories [ENG/ITA]

Saturday - Sunday

From dark legends and fantasies, we're raising our eyes to the stars and present you with a wonderful and explanatory post by @rifkan on star classification. Those of you interested in astrophysics will surely love it!

Writing a simple Compiler on my own - Semantics Examples [C][Flex][Bison]

How about some programming before our weekly issue closes? Our @drifter1 speaks the language of programming and is nailing it in a post where he shows us how he's writing his own compiler!

A few words about the nomination process

For some time, the editorial team behind this distilled series is made of a one-woman-team, @ruth-girl, and she chooses her favorite posts (potentially discussing with other curators and/or the management). Posts written by the SteemSTEM team are excluded from the nomination process.

Please do not be discouraged if you did not make it on this issue. We are picking up in total 6 posts a week out of more than 150-200. The chances are thus low ;) In the meantime, you may wish to check these guidelines for extra tips on how your writing could be more effective.

Despite the fact that steemit is experiencing difficult moments, in STEM we do not stop and users continue to contribute very valuable content for the TAG, congratulations to the users with their excellent publications


Yes, people post less, but we still have amazing active authors to keep the community alive and running!


If the important thing is that we still have a large number of authors committed to this project, in difficult times is where we can see who are those serious people who believe in STEM and are here not only for money, but also for apredener day by day and share with other users

It is an amazing feeling to be part of the SteemSTEM community!
Thanks to you all, and congrats to the other authors as well! :D
