What's on my mind ??
What's the purpose of my life? Mostly purposeless :)
But that's discouraging
Ohh got it...the purpose is to free myself first ;) Then think of it again
We really need a #failed project #archive in material science or at least #solar energy materials..
Its sad that all my #effort put into investigating a material goes wasted if it doesn't work.
It would be very nice if people are able to #publish their failed stuff and still get due credit...may be such an initiative also help overcome fear of publishing open access bcoz its a failed project..
I am a researcher in solar energy materials ( at present perovskites). Renewables are a necessity..isn't it ?
Other than that I love thinking about random stuff, watching movies, fixing stuff, travelling..etc
I use and advocate GNU/Linux and free software.
I follow socialism, marxism, openscience movements.
In Erlangen for a lab visit. Its very cold here..But awesome food.
Can anybody help me to setup and use a server using Debian..how to get a hostname, IP address etc..I have very basic understanding regarding this only..any simple guide will be helpful
features still missing from mastodon: the "solidarity, comrade" button for when someone posts something deeply personal/emotional and you want to show support without the weird implication of "hell yeah your inner pain is my favorite"
You can avoid #YouTube's weird algorithms and broken subscription system by subscribing to channels through RSS instead. You don't need an account, just a feed reader.
Put the channel's username in this address:
You can then add this RSS address to your feed reader app.
For example, OnePotChefShow's RSS feed is:
You can also make RSS feeds from channel IDs (strings of letters and numbers):
Please do not shame people for existing under capitalism.
This includes shaming people for not participating in a boycott you're privileged enough to be able to participate in.
Spain, new efforts on climate change Show more
#Spain's new #PSOE government is cancelling the "sun tax" that severely impaired solar power generation, and taking steps to ramp up its efforts against #climatechange https://www.southeusummit.com/europe/spain/new-spanish-government-to-prioritise-climate-change-policy/
Our paper on the effect of an element' s atomic mass in tuning the defects and properties of a #semiconductor is accepted now 😀
Also discusses how this would help create cheaper solar cells without additional charge extraction layers.

It was interesting how changing from Antimony to Bismuth in a #perovskite structure reduced conduction band side defects but increased valence band side defects !!
Hi all, I am a political theorist, urbanist, democrat, communist, anarchist, libertarian, and geographer. I am interested in democracy and free software.
I wonder if "familiarity bias" is a thing?
Like confirmation bias, but we prefer to stick to things that are familiar rather than spend the effort to learn something new, even if the new thing is clearly or obviously better .... 🤔
A researcher solving the materialistic life ;)
I follow Renewable Energy, Marxism, Anarcho-communism, Open science movements, GNU/Linux and any creative art.

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 @firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
