's cloud provisioning stuff seems much more difficult to start out with than Amazon's. In addition, it is requiring me to link my account to the university's organization which isn't ideal since it says that the domain administrators have access to all the resources for all the projects I create.

I also keep hitting broken pages and the ui is wayy over the top for what I need to do (just create a vm with a gpu or tpu).

Gpu time is too expensive on aws and Google"s cloud is too clunky

Looks like it's making more sense to buy a better gpu if I want to figure out how to train morphological analysis models.

@ksteimel I subscribed there to use Google Translate APIs and this is horrible.

Scholar Social

Federated microblogging 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 @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.
