Bibliography management Show more
I've tried a few ways to organize my papers, and while #kbibtex is amazing for handling a single bibliography, I wanted something to keep my full collection of papers and books under control.
So I moved to #zotero, and I'm pretty happy with it. Especially with the "Better bib(la)Tex" plugin, the "keep updated" option for exporting to .bib files is wonderful.
Now I have to find a way to keep the library on my NAS but use the client from my laptop - 1/2
I recently bought a used Intel NUC (from a very kind photographer I found on Craigslist) to continue my #selfhosting project, but I haven't had time to configure it yet.
I'll keep updating when I get started.
I'm writing a paper, and I've found a decent approach to keep things organized:
2) To overcome writer's block I wrote a one line comment where each paragraph will be, so that I get an idea of the logic of the paper.
The paragraphs then are folded (using #vim) into the one line summaries, to keep the overview.
Anyone in North- or South-America reading this: would you be willing to help the #openstreetmap project by hosting a server?
The project needs additional "tile delivery servers" in the region to cope with the load, more details on the requirements here:
Collapsed Mastodon version 0.8 is published. Release notes follow:

Firefox users can get it from AMO:
Chrome users can do a manual installation from git:
@maloki I think we need a tech support network of humans who have set up self-hosting. Like an old fashioned who-you-can-call phone chain, so no-one gets overloaded but you don't have to go it alone.
Classic academic bait-and-switch:
1) Professor gives an inspirational and informative colloquium that gets people excited.
2) They invite the audience to the in-depth seminar that will be held the following day
3) Seminar is given by Grad Student who is a terribly inexperienced presenter.
This should be illegal.
Wikipedia and Google delude many into thinking all human knowledge has been made available to our immediate access.
This is a dangerous lie.
Any scholar will tell you of the vast amount of documents and artifacts completely unavailble online, or indeed impossible to easily scan or study online.
And this silent wealth pales before the oral and analog culture which, in a McLuhanian dimension, can not be simply digitized and maintain integrity.
Friend: Are you OK? You haven't posted on Instagram in ages
Me: I quit FB, Instagram, and Twitter.
Friend: Why'd you quit the internet?
Me: Actually I've *rejoined* the Internet.
Next time someone asked me why did I leave the internet, I'm gonna say I'm still very much on the Internet. When are *you* coming back?
Great privacy software exists. But what the world needs next is privacy infrastructure on which to deploy that software.
To make your own infrastructure, just install the free #FreedomBox private server system on a single-board computer.
We like the LIME2 made by Olimex. What single-board computer do you like?
I'm trying to take more control of my data (i.e. stop using Google for everything), so I'm trying to figure out what to do.
Does anyone know of a checklist or an extensive guide to self-hosting and related things?
I've looked into a few services but it's confusing, there are so many things out there. Does anyone use NextCloud?

I like plants, baking bread, tinkering, hiking, and too many other things to be listed.
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.
"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

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.
