This talk is about how Pharo/Smalltalk can help us to prototype/rethink the ways we write for science and research, making them more aligned with new practices for doing and communicating knowledge, which are more open, horizontal and participative (known by several variants: open/garage/citizen science and research). We will consider how we can use Pharo to build moldable tools and “pocket infrastructures” that made knowledge building and discovery and their supporting data and visualizations more, traceable and accessible to all.
