Pinned toot

Nerding out on a syllabus design unit for and my (virtual) job at Cooperativa Serveis Linguistics de Barcelona. Rereading Long & Crookes (1991),

adding stuff, adding tangents, thinking about how the field has and hasn't moved on in 27 years.

Gave a Pecha Kucha on ADHD Inclusion at KOTESOL online conference earlier. Saw some great Pecha Kuchas too.

sexual harassment, Verso Books 

I’m not buying from Verso Books anymore, and nor should you

At least until they apologize to Emily Janakiram

Moodle complete. Just the 14 hours to troubleshoot!

I hate installing Moodle.

But am installing Moodle.

I really need to know this, so please boost for visibility:

Are there any people out there on the autistic spectrum that have found a format of living that works for them, that makes them happy?

If you're on the spectrum and feel generally happy or content: do you have a routine, specific coping mechanism(s) or special life conditions that you recommend or feel privileged with? Did you feel happier after excluding some particular element of stress in some way?

If you're on the spectrum and feel generally unhappy: do you think there could be a happy existence for you if society enabled it?

Finally finished Deleuze & Guattari's A Thousand Plateaus.

Hi to all :)
I'm a former PhD student from Italy. I left academic career two years ago. Mainly for health problems (probable meniere's and intrusive tinnitus). Now I want to try again to enter into the academic field. I study philosophy and I'm interested in aestethic of music and political philosophy.Tinnitus is very intrusive and prevent me to concentrate on my studies. Is there anyone here that suffer from it and can give me some advice on how to manage it? Thanks a lot :) :)

PhD meeting, + 

I am "good to go" with starting my articles. "You are well read on your area so, *knowing how your mind works*, why not do a literature review as your first article and then that will help narrow your proposal."

My advisor rules!

Job application systems, - 

Seriously, Japan computer science graduates, marry/get dark shit on one of the university HR people so they pay you can design a usable job application system instead of the people using a 1998 WareZ crack of Dreamweaver.

Power cable on my 18mo laptop effed up. Same spec on my ancient laptop that died of a knackered fan (both Acer). Thank you e-waste hoarding self!

Lost a course at one uni, gained a similar one at another so repurposed syllabus ahoy!

abuse, sexual harassment, Verso Books

"I would not air private conversations publicly if it did not in my opinion speak to Verso’s attitude towards the incident, towards me, and towards their supposed feminist worker solidarity... It is outrageous that they would blame me for the long meetings I supposedly caused by having the audacity to be angry."

The video of my essay exists!
It is me discussing care ethics and neoliberalism. It is a combination of my voice and everyone in the collective's voices as well as readers.

Any suggestions for how to code open-ended survey responses specifically?

I've realized most of what I know about coding is meant for interviews

Publication brag 

OK, so the literature review is a diatribe, but the subfields need it!
