I have successfully convinced my lab-mates to reply with {je'e} when I say {di'ai} after they sneeze

.i mi snada lo ka ce'u termu'igau da poi jibykansa lo ka ba lo nu da senci ku spuda zo di'ai zo je'e

{coi lo pendo} is how to say "Hello, friends!" in (pronounce like: "shoy low pen-doh")

Lojban of the day

"&%#& it's snowing"

Re- for all our new friends!

I'm a doctoral candidate studying the emergent ethical properties of portfolios of drug development in the dept of Experimental Medicine at in Montreal

I also write R (and R markdown), evangelise Zotero, and love other FOSS research tools

I post about , , (me: he/him, cis gay man) issues and I'm the admin for scholar.social (@socrates is also me)

Looking forward to getting to know all of you! :blobpats:

For all x such that x is a lonely type-of person, where does x come from?

Sing to the tune of Eleanor Rigby

In , the Vulcan word for a person's essence is "katra"

Which is morphologically acceptable for a gismu (root word) in , the logical language


Vulcan is a Lojban variant with root vocabulary chosen to represent Vulcan culture

Lojban of the Day

Well I seem to be the only one who made it to the office today

{.i ja'o mi po'o ca lo cabdei cu zvati lo briju}

So many new friends, time for re-!

I'm a PhD candidate and Rabinowitch fellow for medical ethics in the department of Experimental Medicine at McGill University. I work in the STREAM (Studies of Translation, Ethics and Medicine) research group.

My research is mostly on cancer drug development ethics, but I also write software for general use in general medical systematic reviews.

Interests also include and

"I'm studying cancer drug development ethics in grad school."

{.i mi bavmulcu'e tadni lo kenra micyxu'i finti madyske}

Fun thing:

Due to the structure of the language, you can use capital letters to indicate where a word is stressed and then eliminate spaces between the words, and there is no ambiguity in meaning

In fact, the Lojban parser recognises this: lojban.github.io/ilmentufa/glo

This means that you can have phrases or entire sentences in Lojban in and the lack of spaces will never bork them up

I am the grad school fairy, here to make your research problems disappear!

I am also a doctoral candidate at McGill U in Montreal, where I work with the STREAM research group. My research is in medical research ethics.

I'm a trekkie. I'm also super-queer and love to make straight boys uncomfortable. I play the fiddle.
