Cross-domain connections on Mastodon work well, as I had sent @antlerboy a link to mastodon.cloud/@daviding , and his profile is at mastodon.social/@antlerboy (from his having joined April 2017, as well). We'll see if more people come over.

That only turned up a few hits for me, but is still worth trying.

Breadth with depth in courses MOOCs free on the Internet. Discovered curriculum while reading on Sustainable Development Goals paper and presentation.
