Service toot to all fellow bisexuals :bisexual_flag: :pansexual_flag: :

Please be reminded that you are under a status effect of high visibility today. Vanishing spells will likely fizzle and stealth checks have disadvantage. Take care.


So much about these dynamics feels familiar from working with open education resources & open access publication:

It leads to unfortunate outcomes, all around. Often despite good intentions of people who otherwise know better.

fossbros: read the documentation

the documentation:

Wait, you're telling me that it's spelled "Occidental" College,,,

AND it has nothing to do with Robyn Ochs?

Sorry, that just can't be right.

my blueprint for liberatory digital #infrastructure for science & academia is up on arxiv, i'll write a thread on it when i get a chance, but for now here it is for my fedi friends. #p2p #LinkedData with lessons from #wikis #pirates #librarians and the fediverse, making this happen will be the project for the rest of my foreseeable future :)

please, I need an example of a quasi-cringe/quasi-earnest self-published author's website with kind of old school design, etc.

Boosts welcome.

🔥 I updated my talk, slides, and also article on how, what and why designers can document accessibility for today's @webaim conference. I added some details based on previous feedback, and I also prepared a checklist to help people document.

Okay, I'm at least using my last bit of tomorrow's shared slideshow to demonstrate how faculty can customize a sidebar in Moodle to add links to their own choice of journals, libguides, and Zotero.

Take that, Goggle.

The DOERS3 Collaborative is looking for case study authors for a book-length project centered around valuing open education work in the tenure, promotion, and reappointment process. #oer #openeducation

Relearning the fact that adding image animations to Goggle Slides has to be one of my absolute least favorite, most tedious tasks.

and remembering precisely why teaching myself to use Reveal / Remark / Deck and make my own layouts in HTML & CSS was & remains far preferable than this.

At least those approximate useful skills that actually let me see what I'm doing, not just creative kludges compensating for the laziness of folks at Alphabet.

"So, uh, you're an Elf?"
"Are you, like, homo or heterosexual?"
"Me, or Elves?"
"Er, both?"
"Most Elves are homosexual, some are heterosexual, some bisexual. I am bisexual."
"You like both men and women?"
"What's gender got to do with it? I like both Elves and Dwarves."

@platypus Personally, I need to be able to tinker and alter things in my planner every so often in order to keep engaging with it. (Pretty sure this is part of my particular ADHD ways.)

The above is part of why I love using Dendron, a VS Code extension, as a sort of bullet journal/ planner/ log/ etc.

I've got it set up with templates for days, weeks, and months, as well as snippets of different planning tools like Sri's.

Anyways, hope you find an approach you love!

@platypus If you're looking for something physical—and especially if you're not yet sure what you want—I love Sri Seah's various tools.

In particular, the Emergent Task Planner is great for my brain

They have individual pages you can print out and try, or you can buy pre-printed ones as well.


Waving at the beginning and end of video meetings helps participants know there are no weapons hidden up our sleeves.

We log on & log off in peace.

Northern hemisphere reminder: Whatever your short-sun coping mechanism/s might be--vit D, happy light, etc.--it's probably a good time to at least stock up on supplies, if not get started doing them.

"A Dutch city will become the first in the world to ban meat adverts from public spaces in an effort to reduce consumption and greenhouse gas emissions."

"Haarlem, which lies to the west of Amsterdam and has a population of about 160,000, will enact the prohibition from 2024 after meat was added to a list of products deemed to contribute to the climate crisis."
