Folks, do you know any #opensource #software solution focused on hosting #videos that offers privacy settings such as protecting videos with passwords?

@ErikaAlpert
Ah ok, sure. Are there accepted pronunciations for these as well?

@ErikaAlpert
Can you help me with your mention of gender neutral endings in Spanish? I'm currently learning Spanish and had tried looking into gender neutrality but couldn't find much.

@amphetamine
Ah ok. His cardigans always had some nice colors.

part of the reason I'm always on about open source and intellectual property rights is because I *want* people to build off my ideas/tools and use them as launching pads for their own original thoughts. so truly, I'm thrilled when people "copy" me. it means I've inspired someone! and that's all the impact I can hope for :)

So I meet with a lot of students for advising. I need a better method for retaining notes about what was discussed. I'm thinking about starting to record the conversations so there's a transcript.

Generally this is also why I strongly prefer email over meetings.

Scholar Social

A Mastodon instance for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"A Mastodon profile you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @socrates@scholar.social and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
