📢 Our first ever job ad!
We're looking for an infrastructure / site reliability engineer to join our independent open source project, evolve our system architecture and help us degoogle even more websites 🥳
I’m constantly shocked at how many anti corporate, privacy and even anarchist organisations publish all of their content and communications on FB, Twitter, YouTube etc.
I understand they are trying to increase their reach to the largest possible audience but at least give options for those of us who try to avoid this platforms.
Does anybody know a Fediverse instance dedicated to teachers? In scholar.social I have found some, but maybe there is one dedicated to them only, without researchers on the mix ;)
Hi there! I'm reading Failure to Disrupt: Why Technology Alone Can’t Transform Education, by Justin Reich, and one of the things that he says about successful #edtech startups is that they build a nice community of teachers willing to improve their pedagogical methods through technology.
This is basically the same @torproject's founder Roger Dingledine answered me in a recent Q&A session about advice to academics looking to start their own business on privacy.
Spread the word: WE ARE HIRING!

This week I read Cappelen & Dever's recent book 'Making AI Intelligible', about applying ideas from philosophy of language to the question of whether artificial intelligences say and mean things.
fyi: 20,000 grant on "AI Anarchies"
"AI Anarchies is a call for proposals open to artists in any field who work with AI as a topic and/or AI technologies in the broadest sense. The project seeks artists that contribute to the debate on AI and ethics through conceptual and aesthetically compelling forms. AI Anarchies invites artistic, speculative, and/or technical practices and interventions that articulate and challenge approaches to power and ethics in the emergence of AI. It proposes artistic resistance through subjective and political actions and creative acts. Small AI, disobedient AI, unimaginable AI, counter AI, tricky AI, risky AI, fantasy AI, playful AI, mischievous AI, emotional AI, affective AI, or no AI at all could all be roads to AI Anarchies."
