...improvements in air quality in the United States between 1990 and 2010 reduced deaths from by nearly half.

Organizing an instrument intercomparison workshop. It's a lot of work but I am looking forward to the results.

Our European EMPIR BC project will lose its coordinator next year due to 😔

Preparing my slides for the EMPIR BC project meeting. Learn more about the project that aims to bring to measurements.

Yep. Currently Inoreader, but I'm interested in switching to the paid form of Newsblur. :)

[Paper] Three years of measurements of light-absorbing over coastal : seasonality, origin, and transport


Reminder to all users: Your worth is not determined by whatever you got done or didn't get done this week

I use newsblur and like that the most, but I've also successfully used tt-rss and Nextcloud news. Somehow newsblur seems the snappiest on mobile. I'm using the centralised server though.

@jorge I'm currently a big Inoreader fan, combined with Reeder on iOS.

@jorge I've had TT-RSS on my webserver since the day Google Reader shut down. It just works.

.com is one of the worst options one can use to build a website. Please, never consider using their service.

@jorge Since I already have a #Nextcloud server for many other purposes, I use a Nextcloud app called News:

@jorge newsblur. I've always been very happy with it.

I use feeder for android and quiterss on debian. No need for external server and allow me to categorize feeds as I want them.
Also, as they both use OPML to back up, I can easily sync them

Happy the vast majority of people are using open-source :RSS: feed aggregators.
I personally use commafeed. Very happy with it until now 🙂

@jorge personally I use elfeed under emacs, but the one I recommend to others is Feedly.

Netvibes, but i want to change to a self hosted in the future

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.

"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 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.
