Pinned toot

Hi all :) I'm working on a PhD on , specifically studying the for science movement. As an activist I'm interested in feminist approaches to tech which I try to implement in meet ups, workshops, etc. A big part of my time goes to working as open as STS lets me, another big part goes to WikiData because I love it. Beautiful communities are what keep me existing through late capitalism, so here I am in Mastodon <3.

hey yall! tomorrow/later today at 5pm utc, @cassandreces will be presenting at about open science hardware communities around the world! 🔧 ^_^

open science, open hardware, right to repair 

New post-- I share why I think it's important for us, open science hw people, to address more the repair angle of , together with the movement

expat, life, feelings 

Is any of you living far from home, with no realistic possibilities of going back soon? How do you deal with it?

I just talked to my friends who gathered because it's a holiday today in Arg, and I can't help wondering wtf am I doing with my life.

sociology joek 

If you've read sociology and ended up a perfectly normal person, I can't help but feel you've missed the boat somehow

Hi everyone! Which are your recommended readings on intersectional feminism and technology?

Politics, Bolivia 

I can't believe I'm living to see an old-fashioned military coup in Bolivia.

I'm really sad. You may like or dislike Evo, but this shows how much the right-wing accepts democracy as a method.

They entered the house of government with a bible, and people outside were setting indigenous flags on fire. It's cultural revenge.

LULA LIVREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

I'm back to this beautiful place , where I should be more often.

Has any of you started a PhD in a different discipline than the one you studied before? How did you survive?

I switched from environmental sciences to STS and it's still a struggle...

Which are the things you learned/are learning during your PhD, that you value the most?

STS books, irony 

From 'The handbook of Scientific and Technology Studies' (MIT Press, 2007):

"The British government’s Office of Science and Innovation [...] emphasizes the shift
from the older PUS (Public Understanding of Science) model to a new PEST (Public
Engagement with Science and Technology) approach.

There is reason, beyond the occasionally revealing acronyms 😆 , to treat this rhetoric of “engagement” with caution [..]"

Anyone here writes social sciences thesis in the open? GitLab, GitHub or similar?

phd, social sciences 

Is there anything worse than transcribing interviews that happened in different languages?

Is there anything worse than transcribing interviews?

Maybe imploring people to complete surveys?

I can't decide 🤔

Argentina, politics, science, sadness 

Apertura de las sesiones legislativas. Una mentira atrás de otra. Nostalgia de cuando la Ciencia Argentina tenía un lugar en el Congreso y las políticas del país.
