follow requests (personal policy) 

a follow request is a request. i don't have to accept it and i don't owe you a reason for rejecting it. however, common reasons include:

* you're an older/more established academic (you scare me)
* i've never seen you around
* you come from an instance with skeevy moderation/i don't trust
* you teach at my institution
* i don't like your vibes

thanks

I am here in this critical ocean to kill whales for my living, and not to be killed by them for theirs

grad programs, :boost_requested: 

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)

Apropos of nothing, here is a photo I took many years ago in #HerveyBay. I went #WhaleWatching, and this was one of the first captures of the day, and is easily one of the best photos I've ever managed to capture.

hi new users! this is a reminder that mastodon's culture is NOT the same as twitter's-- you're entering a community, not a void, and we're reading your posts and want to interact with you

please don't treat this place as "twitter but with a new ui." the influx has been overwhelming for some of us who've been around for a while, we're happy to see new faces but please be considerate of the people around you as you join this space. thank u
