#fluter just published an article [DE] about #kanthaus, the project house I helped set up and live at.


Title reads "Diese WG teilt sich alles – von den Betten bis zur Unterwäsche" (This shared flat shares everything — from bedsheets to underwear) Which isn't untrue 😆

They write: „Das Wohnprojekt erinnert auf den ersten Blick an eine Hippiekommune, agiert aber fast wie ein Start-up“ 😹 (Seems like a hippie commune, acts like a start up)

It is so sad to see it claimed that if we do not restart the economy more lives will be lost than if we let #COVID19 run rampant

We have still have and for decades have had enough resources to provide enough for every human.

What we are saying is that if some people don't get their next mansion expansion, fancy car and holiday they will let others die - And saddest of all, it's true.

Climate crisis, programming 

Just curious - why are people (I'm one) using safari? ... just sayin'...

@emsenn We already had our kid at home with us but it's good to have that reminder from someone who understands that when trying to meet deadlines and stuff with children in the room is difficult, it's not the child that is unreasonable, but the deadlines

Traditional Indigenous Kinship Practices

Hey @jalcine I totally love (envy!) the way you're using micropub on your site. Seems like a pretty sensible way to transcend all the siloes. Can you recommend a good way to get started down this path?

I use mostly because I was being lazy and simply wanted to reuse a template I saw on Kieran Healy's page. Plus, faster than jekyll.

Quick poll for this instance full of academics: for those of you who use a static site generator for your personal website - which one do you use? And why?

I feel bad for all those folks who Marie Kondo'd their lives a few months back and are left with 3 shirts, 2 plates, no cookware, and half a book to get them through social distancing.

Today I learned that many/most color laser printers layer an array of yellow microdots on top of documents 🔬

This Machine Identification Code en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machine_ encodes a print date and a serial number unique to the machine. It only became public knowledge in 2004, ~20 year after deployment 😑

The Technical University of Dresden released a tool 2 years ago to layer on _even more dots_ to render the MIC unreadable and aid whistleblowers publishing github.com/dfd-tud/deda

So... it looks like nearly everyone with school-age children is going to be doing home education for a wee while pretty soon here. Seems like a pretty good opportunity for those of us who have been teaching at home to provide some "open access" resources!

Also, redoc? Amazing. Have been scratching my head over what to do about journal editors insisting on submissions in docx when I write in and .

Just stumbled onto a super useful state of the art on using R in reproducible research. Huge thanks to annakrystalli.me for a super helpful set of slides. Tons of takeaway for me, including building a Docker container which I hadn’t thought of! bit.ly/r-in-repro-research-dc if others are interested!

So a new social media site is only as good as your network! Who out there is doing , , , , , ?

Maybe we can get a big thread going?
