A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.

Here's an .

I'm an ecologist currently based in Gothenburg, Sweden. At work I try to find out how plant communities are affected by changes in climate, what that means for ecosystem functioning under climate change, and whether we can already see signs of changes in habitats that have been monitored for a long time. is important to me.

I love cycling and the outdoors🚴, all the species🌱🦇🦢🐌🦋, and playing nintendo :n64:

Looking forward to meeting new people!

Ok, so it turns out I never did a propper on scholar.social. Here I go.

I'm an invited assitant professor at of , and at Institutuo Politecnico de .

I work in focused on studying through .

I'm a strong supporter of , , and principles.

Looking forward to reinforcing communities around here! =-)

All too often I hear "how can we justify funds to maintain research software?"

But really, we should be asking "How can we justify _not_ funding it?"

My colleagues and I wrote a thing: nature.com/articles/s43588-021

The paper not only describes the activity, as it also contains, , , materials lists, and other creative solutions so that anyone can replicate it.

Our paper is finally out! I'm really proud to be a part of this!
: making basic concepts accessible to people with visual impairment through a multisensory tree of life.

This is just cool science. Precious DNA collected from mammoth molars from > 1 M years ago

Inacreditável ou quê?

Esteemed #Fediverse !

You were just a topic in the German Parliament.
Anke Domscheit-Berg described the problem in the first sentence
The “full capitalization of a deeply human need, communication”

and decribed the solution, a federated network without a central authority

"Service for the Public"
"Funded by the EU"
"Maximum autonomy"

and maybe good governance …

EU gives 12+ billion to monopolies with Horizon.

Now fund W3C recommendations like #ActivityPub !

So today on the bioinformatics chat podcast we're excited to have Xiang Ji himself! We start with a bit of background on phylogenetics and then go into the why and how of the gradient calculation.

"with all due respect" declares a variable but does not initialize it

A reproducible workflow Ok, so [this video](youtu.be/s3JldKoA0zw) is a few years old, but it does not have anywhere near the views it deserves. It's never too late to do reproducible science! (Video 1m 44s)

> Reproducible science not only reduce errors, but speeds up the process of re-running your analysis and auto-generate updated documents with the results. shaarli.chepec.se/?PiTedQ

when designing a dam be sure to make the overflow as unnecessarily terrifying as possible
