Hi scholar.social!

I'm a doctoral researcher in , and I plan to test sluice-model of argument flow from periphery to core.

I'm also interested in and in general.

Non-academic interests include server administration & service hosting, video games.

This is not my first account in the Fediverse, but this time I want to make full use of the "local timeline" feature. (:

Comment on Covid-19 speech 

Watching our 's livestream for students. Quite … uninspiring.

video file via NAS #vlc #linux #windows 

Got a couple video files stored on a NAS, that I can play with VLC when accessing them from several different machines running Win10.
But when I try to play those files with VLC from my machine running Arch:
VLC reports that it could not open the file,
throws error "Invalid argument"
and throws "Invalid NAL unit size (XYZ > 1950)" where XYZ differs per file.

Files play with no issue when copied to local harddrive.

Any suggestions?

Boosts appreciated.

I love grading, cause every so often I get an assignment where a student puts in a joke for me.
I see you, and it won't get you a higher grade, but ty.

When I finished reading and made my notes on a , I mark the text as and it amuses me way too much.

Argh, I made that like fifteen minutes ago, but didn't link it correctly. One for the void…

Your occasional reminder that if you have a website that is in any way "UK-based", however you choose to define that, you can submit it to be archived by the UK Web Archive, based at the British Library 📚

They pick up most .uk domains, but rely on nominations to identify everything else: webarchive.org.uk/en/ukwa/info

They also can't automatically pick up open licenses, so this is a way to tell them that your content can be openly accessible in the archive.

Next week, 1st April, economist and sociologist Paola Tubaro will be giving a talk on the hidden workers behind modern artificial intelligence, and the resulting new configuration of the job market.

Inscription is free but mandatory.
The webpage is in french, but the speaker is english-speaking so the seminar should be available in english.

"convergence without control". An interesting phrase coined by Rasmussen (referring to Benkler) which I would apply also to the : even if it converges around some giant instances, the general openness limits the control those instances can exert.

Not a new idea, I just like the phrase.

Looks like an interesting set of teaching resources for text analysis in — anyone using them?
