Pinned toot

Hello all! re-
I am a student studying at the University of Washington's iSchool for my Masters degree in Library & Information Science. I love books, painting, hiking, board games, and playing with my pups. (: I did away with Facebook & Instagram...so I look forward to connecting with you all here!

Work & LGBTQ+ 

OH MY LANTA.
I am so excited!

I am helping plan the FIRST EVER LGBTQ+ program for my Library with the help of some LGBTQ+ co-workers.

Fingers crossed that the program gets the "go" from library leadership 🀞

re-introduction 

Time to tell people about myself again - all the cool kids are doing it!

Working on my MSc thesis, designing, building and launching a ChipSat! Also getting distracted by almost everything to do with space, and quite a lot not to do with space. Always interested in learning but chronically disorganised.

Leftist, anarchist, main at @RedFuture

Ask me space stuff - if I don't know the answer I'll have fun finding out, and it'll be a good excuse to procrastinate!

Minimum Wage in America 

People keep saying it needs to be $15/hour.

No, that was 15 years ago.

Now it needs to be $30/hour.

The idea that website owners have "a right" to track the clicks from their emails to you and to know everything about your journey in their system is wrong.

Imagine if you buy your child a bike - does the chain manufacturer have a right to know what time they use the bike and which friends they visit?

Of course not. We should stop pretending that websites are magical experiences that require persistent intrusion.

#Privacy is a right, even though it is far from being legally declared so.

Scripting 

I made a script called "initiate_zap" for my "ZappyZap" folder and it brings me childlike joy. :BlobCatMelt:

Out of curiosity, what do you think it does? :BlobCatSurprised:

#re-introductions 

If it's still -introductions time, I'm Paolo, a researcher in and Latin at Sapienza Univ. of Rome. My main focus are digital scholarly editions. My commitment is for , but right now I'm campaigning against the use of platforms for distance learning

Re-introduction 

I'm Michael (he or they, an assistant professor in London, originally from California. My work primarily lies at the intersection of economics, business studies, and political science/international relations, but I appreciate diversity in subject matter. I also really like applied econometrics.

My public posts are somewhat work-related, given the focus of scholar.social. Other topics are unlisted or followers-only.

Tell me!
What are your favorite open source or decentralized doo-dads? GO! :BlobCatRainbow:

Re- time!

I am a philosopher, working on epistemology and metaphysics. I am very keen on all things modal, but specially on abilities and knowledge of ability, know-how, understanding...

I completed my PhD at KU Leuven, and I am in between jobs at the moment. Wish me luck!

I care about music, design, environmental ethics, phil of maths, logic, programming. Just very curious overall, I guess...

Morning y'all! Joining the re- train.
I'm a PhD student in Political Science, and I'm working on my dissertation. I study language, neoliberalism, and care ethics.
I'm going to be leaving academia to pursue teaching high school cause I love teaching, and gonna be an independent scholar.

I also always have side projects on topics outside of this for fun!
I post a lot about my job search, research, and also nonsense.

It's re- time apparently!

I'm Verity (she/they), I'm nearly finished with studying medicine in the UK!

πŸš‘ often thinking about: critical care, prehospital/community emergency medicine, social determinants of health, mitochondria

⌨ also interactive fiction and other storytelling!

πŸ₯Ÿ and dumplings.

Currently working on a tiny education project, and also passing my exams properly... hello!

Saying hi to new friends! 

Re- seem to be the thing today on scholar

Hello to new and familiar faces on the instance!

I'm the research fairy (he/they), here to make your academic problems disappear 🧚

I did my PhD in medical research ethics, and now I work in medical meta-research

I post a lot about Star Trek, especially Deep Space Nine; if you watch DS9, I *will* very likely boost every single time you mention it

I ate the whole thing of hummus, it was me, sorry

We're re-introducing! Hey cool kids. I'm Yo - they/she. Ex-research software engineer, EngD student at the University of Manchester, based in the UK but also Israeli and Kiwi. The day job is at the Wellcome Trust as open source technology lead, and openly shared research is my favourite thing, more than sliced bread. I most eat veggies and am usually tired.

Re-, you say?

I'm doing social science research within an engineering school that's into new/clean energy tech - in my case, EVs and grid integration.

Less cars >> EVs > fossil cars

My PhD was in architectural science, about the experience of air conditioning, and my undergrad was in renewable energy engineering.

I've been doing all sorts of things related to energy for the last ~16 years including policy, consulting and building stuff.

hi scholar.social! I’m ezra. I’m a high school student interested in human organization and collaboration, and a lot of other things including (maybe) academia. I made a more complete list in my bio just for fun.

one of the main reasons I’m on this instance is to learn more about the paths you all have taken and continue to take to get where you are now!

Howdy Folx, here's an #introduction from me!

I am an engineering and environmental studies student. I'm currently interested in digital humanities and archival as well as city planning. I work in energy efficiency strategy and as a program assistant for an LGBTQ+ online community org.

I am #queer, #trans, #neurodivergent, and Burmese Chinese.

I like to make bracelets, listen to math rock, learn about the early internet, explore create. I dabble in graphic design and digital art as well.

I have never used a status focused social media platform before. I look forward to learning along with you all and growing in community.

Hello all, here's a new #introduction from me. I post #GuineaPig pictures.

I also enjoy #baseball and #WomensHockey. I also struggle with mental health as my followers-only audience knows well.

A couple #accessibility tips: caption your images if possible and use capital letters in your hashtags so screen readers can handle them #LikeThis.

I'm on BookWyrm & you're invited! (bookwyrm.social/invite/BZSS5BH)

It looks like a very fun project - defiantly worth the look if you love to read and review books!
