We are pleased to announce that Scalar, an affiliated project from the Vectors’ team, has received an Editorsâ€™ Choice award from PCMag.com!Â The in-depth review praises the platform for its flexibility, connectivity and originality.Â The author, William Fenton, notes, â€œBefore it even became available, Scalar had the Digital Humanities community abuzz. A product of USCâ€™s Alliance for Networking Visual Culture, Scalar (Free) was heralded as a groundbreaking publishing platform that would empower users to chart non-linear paths though a pastiche of Web-born content and mediaâ€”all without onerous technical expertise. After using the open beta for nearly a month, I am happy to report that Scalar achieves, and perhaps surpasses, the scuttlebutt.â€Â The review concludes â€œcompare Scalar to its kin, and you will soon see that it does not have any: Scalar stands apart in its novelty, accessibility, and capability, and for these reasonsâ€”and many moreâ€”it receives PCMagâ€™s Editorsâ€™ Choice award.â€ Hearty congratulations to the development team and all the Scalar early adopters!
