My #hobbies include video games, anime, reading, photography, traveling, and programming.
The ONLY valid HOT take EVER was when Prometheus STOLE fire from the GODS!!! smdh people.
If you ever doubt the usefulness of your efforts, remember that a substantial amount of trees are planted by squirrels hiding nuts and then forgetting where they put 'em
I have the Mozilla #IOT thing platform running on my #RaspberryPi. I own no commercial devices that can connect to it. BUT I do have an #Arduino and two #Pinocc.io Scouts. Looking for some inspiration. What kind of stuff can I do? The Scouts have a couple of sensors (temp, maybe humidity, maybe ambient light). For the right project idea I can buy more sensors. Still, with nothing to actually control I'm not sure how useful any of it is.
People often wonder why printers are so cantankerous but frankly any device that embeds pigmented runes in the remains of long-dead trees is going to be stricken by an ancient faerie curse from the start

At a conference recently, I went over to a table of guys around a computer.
Asked "Whatcha working on, can I join?"
One of them says "It's very complex stuff," with dismissive body language.
Guy I know says "jay can handle it" and makes room for me to sit down.
Yeah, I facilitated multiple sessions at the conference on this, and just spent weeks implementing a related feature.
One rude person doesn't ruin my day anymore, but this type of thing beats down beginners.
I’m an English and philosophy undergrad, one class shy of graduation. I’m planning on an eventual PhD. I’m interested in the relationship of queerness and religion in Early Modern texts, especially Milton, whose “A Mask” is my principal critical focus this far. I’m also interested in the overlap of Otherness, religion, and theories of the monstrous.
I’m looking forward to my time here.
"Zelda?" actually, the singular is: Zeldum
Hi! I've been watching Mastodon evolve for awhile and finally decided to take the plunge. I'm (somewhat permanently) based at a London university. My research largely revolves around quantitative political economy, with lots of overlap with business studies, different subfields of economics, international relations, and comparative politics. I also teach and am recovering from an overburdening administrative role. I plan to toot on a wider range of interests...

But here's one that posts the reason that a clinical trial is terminated, suspended or withdrawn and the link to the clinicaltrials.gov record:
I'm junior faculty in the Neuroscience department @MayoClinic. I primarily research #Alzheimers disease and #ALS using computational methods (#bioinformatics). I'm currently applying single-cell (#DropSeq) and long-read sequencing technologies (@PacBio and @nanopore).
My twitter handle is also @bioinfo_mark.
I feel like we're in one of those moments where a bit less coding up new non-centralised services, and a bit more working out how people can discover and easily adopt existing ones might be good.
Why haven't asymmetrical keys replaced passwords yet?
imagined security scheme:
1.Generate public/private key pair
2. share public key when creating account with whomever.
3. when logging in, account will send you random string
4. your browser will encrypt string with private key
5. account will decrypt string with your public key, if it is the same string they sent, you are authenticated.
Our friend (and Mozilla Fellow) @hangdothiduc just released her latest project, Public By Default. It's a sobering look at online privacy in the era of social media.

Scholar Social is meant 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.

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.
