Can someone recommend a computer-assisted qualitative data analysis software (CAQDAS) that runs on Linux? Preferably FOSS.

I learned these very important basic German sentences while I was in Berlin:

* Möchtest du mit mir eine Limonade schlürfen?

* Deine Ideen sind wertvoll, aber du bist im unrecht.

* Da haben wir den Salat!

* Die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt.

I wrote about why Mastodon is growing so fast. Short version: sex workers and lolicon.

Are there any scholars, students or other people from Jyväskylä (Finnland) here? Or someone who's spent some time there.

I moved to my current university a year ago for my Master's degree. I successfully applied here for an exchange semester next winter. But in the meantime I have realized that the orientation of my institute differs greatly from my personal academic interests.
But if I change my course (not my subject) now, I could never again have the chance for a semester abroad.

Hey everyone, Moodle is looking for a Technical Architect to assist me on the MoodleNet project I'm leading.

I'd like to encourage applications from far and wide, so please consider applying.

Note that need to be within five hours of UK time - or be willing to shift your hours to accommodate.

Please boost, so that awesome, suitably-qualified people on Mastodon and the wider Fediverse see this opportunity!

Dear fediverse, I need your help. I'm going to do some research on YouTube comments. Is there someone with experience in this field? Can someone recommend a software solution to extract the entries from the website into a text file or something like this?

Boost if you have nice sketchbooks in which you dare not draw lest you RUIN the pages.

Please boost widely: Call for Proposals, "After Social Media: Alternatives, New Beginnings, and Socialized Media." It's a call for research/essays on alternative social media, including Mastodon, of course.

Read an article about postcolonial theory yesterday. Today I'm in a seminar on ethnology and everything seems wrong...

popular german holocaust denier, politician of the german party #AfD Hoecke got just gifted a monument.

A monument of shame and remembrance.
Why? Because he needs it the most.

#antifa #directaction made by 'political beauty' who are

- renting a house direct next to him
- creating an network infiltrating, observing and taking actions against the far-right. As known from #NSU process the state infiltrated those networks too, but to protect and support.

Using free / open source software or (slightly better) proprietary / closed software that you can get for free?

I don't know how to carry on. I wasn't able to finish any thesis this semester or to get any Credit Points otherwise. I feel like under water. There's no motivation to go on. On the other hand I'm still interested in my subject.
Is this modern academia or is it me? Did anyone experience the same difficulties?

Due to a lack of motivation I can't finish my thesis now. I'll wait till I've got a lack of time instead ... (Deadline, here I come again)

(I usually don't follow trends, but I think this one is nice)

I'm a grad student from Hamburg (Germany) and study Systematic Musicology. This includes social, physical, psychological, medical, aesthetic and technical aspects of music. It's annoying when people ask what instrument I play, because that's like underestimating my subjects. I'm also interested into gender/queer studies and other humanities.
I also like cats, anime, diversity ...

Reserving #acoustics and #psychoacoustics books in the british library reading rooms (like a boss)(not like a boss?)(i regret any boss-related errors)

If there's any you think are ace or remember from your student (or teaching) days, I'd love to hear about it.

female:pressure is a network that aims to a make women who are engaged into electronic music more visible.

There's no difference to other fields like technology or research: There are many qualified female, trans* and non-binary people. Why can't we see them?
