Pinned toot

Hi all! I am a Ph.D. candidate working with geophysical turbulence, shallow water equations and fluid mechanics in general. I am also a big FOSS enthusiast and I actively participate in a couple of Python related projects: , , to name a few.

I am a data scientist at the Johns Hopkins University. I work in a lot of different spaces, so I try not to narrow it down too much. You can learn more about me at jameshoward.us

the EU is working to draft rules limiting planned obsolescence, and I couldn't be happier about it:

So: a gentle and loving reminder to all my old birdsite friends: it's appreciated here when posting political toots, or anything that might be unsettling or triggering, that you tag your toot with a content warning, so it is hidden behind the warning by default. It's not a red flag that your tweet is bad, trolls aren't going to come for certain flags (can't search them), it's just one way that this community protects itself.

Some people even use the CW feature to make clever jokes. You'll see.

#introductions I'm interested most seriously in math--analysis more than algebra, learning lately about combinatorial/incidence geometry (e.g. the Erdős distinct-distance problem)--and programming--mostly in Haskell, although I'm curious about C and systems-level things as well. On the amateur plane I like classical music and read haphazardly in the s-f/litfic/poetry space. I try to learn from the example of people who're more knowledgeable or skillful than I am.

The ultimate argument that eventually tears the Fediverse apart and drives all users away will be whether to use #introduction or #introductions in your #intro post.

Hello! I’m Rebecca, I’m from Ireland and I’m a software developer - I mainly use Go and Python, and I have a huge interest in Rust at the minute. It’s very nice to meet you all- I’m still getting quite used to here :D #introductions

Web 3.0 should be the , and not inefficient CPU/GPU-hogging systems built around blockchains. One thing is for sure: decentralized networks are the future.

That said, it is good to be on Mastodon, and it is surprisingly fairly active. Not too much, not too less, just right.
