Ah, looks like I won't be switching back to Regolith, until Regolith 2 gets out of beta, at least
does anyone have tips for narrowing down or vetting graduate programs, especially in games (both critical and practical flavor), computer science (hci, PLs, pedagogy, "tech ethics"), education, (maybe??) english/lit? or recs for where i should look
especially if i don't want to specialize yet? (i'm leaning towards a masters program for this reason but am not sure how restrictive getting a ma/phd is courseload-wise)
We've all been there
We've all tripped so hard on nose-lizard that we woke up the next morning on Yggdrasil
by the time I wake up tomorrow our attempt to stake one heart of one vampire in the plague of medical profiteering that sucks away the life force of humanity will be out in plos, and that will be one tiny win in the war of anti-profitable technology.
All that to say,
If you want to get to know some cool kids on Scholar, welcome, pull up a seat, the coffee machine is in the kitchenette over there
But if you want to maximize user engagement with your brand, I'll kinda be actively putting up roadblocks to that kind of behaviour here and you'll eventually get frustrated and leave
Hey everyone, I've had a few people ask and I'm not having problems with the moderation work-load, but thanks for checking!
You're generally very easy on me as a mod
The bigger reason why I closed sign-ups here is that building community just isn't something that can be done at scale
It takes relationship-building, getting to know people, connecting with them, vulnerability, consistency and investment in each other
And no it won't be the same as academic Twitter
Have you seen Twitter?

Is there anyone out there (in the scholar.social-verse at least) who has made a transition out of academia and into some sort of post-academic work? I am finding myself more disillusioned with academia everyday but can’t really envision what a life/career outside might be like. I am just looking for someone to give me some insight on what that transition was like and/or if I should really just “tough it out,” so to speak.
