Interesting resources discovered during Nexus Informatics 2022

Steve Simon


During the talks at the Nexus Informatics conference of 2022, I took a peek at various website and articles. These were either ones that the speakers mentioned or ones I googled on a topic that they covered. I am placing links to these here in case I want to look at them later.
