@BarkMarnett I've used a T440S for over 6 years now on Fedora KDE. It's been great! The T440 has a terrible touchpad relative to other thinkpads... but I have made due.

Small imperfection on the screen... might have been from one of many drops. Love docking for multiple displays when coding at home. And hot swapping batteries has been of some use. Speakers suck though. I'll probably go for another thinkpad when this one feels like it can't perform anymore.

@nolan Thanks for stimulating the sharing a lot of interesting perspectives.

I want to agree with others that while Apple is being singled out by Mr.Harris as a potential good actor (given it's business model) this does not diminish the role of FLOSS to protect minds from algorithmic exploitation.

FLOSS is a community which benefits those who train/work in it as much as it creates products. The value of FLOSS as an institution promoting certain expertise and values should not be discounted. 🙏

@orn @openscience Yes I remember when I first re-conceptualized the cytoplasm as more crowded, it does make you think differently about the challenges of getting things to find each other in the milieu.

Here's a cool paper title from a speaker I heard once. I think the idea of physics having all this formal language and biology finding the right way to contextualize it for life is very compelling.

@denny By prepare to do well I assume you mean meet their fundraising goals. You have published guides to that end online, which makes me wonder what sort of community you want to build with reviewers. Are they support for series of best practices or are they also some sort of individual voice which can critique the proposal (maybe in ways science has previously not experienced at this scale). In either case if you want to extend a few jobs my way I'd be interested in reviewing. I'm curious.

Any science friends here in Amsterdam or London?

@denny Hmm I wonder what editors have to say about managing reviewers in peer review. It seems like they don't manage very much except to line them up and send them to work. Which might be part of the reason some people feel like reviewers are unfair. But at the end of the day the editor gets to make a decision. I'm curious as to how you guys are envisioning the review of your projects. Do reviews support the crowd or do they support your decisions gate-keeping the projects?

@denny Oh hey! I've been lurking the Trello board for experiment.com I'm excited to hear how the reviewer system is working or isn't working. Welcome to the instance.
