Any person with common sense can understand THE FINAL THEORY.

You need not to be a scholar of or .

And still THE FINAL THEORIE offers a framework to explain all of them. It explains everything humans do, all animals do, all micro-organisms do and all matter does.

It explains even why there is a universe.

All you need to do to understand THE FINAL THEORY is you need to have the goal to understand it.

Hi, I'm a professor in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech. My research is in AR/VR (XR), and mostly focuses on experiences, social, HCI and tools. I have work on web-based AR for years, which is how I find myself on an extended leave at Mozilla, working as a Principal Research Scientist on WebXR, all-things-AR and projects like hubs and Firefox Reality.

I mostly use @blair (because, why be in the fediverse if you don't have your own node?)

Hi! I'm L.P.
I know, I know, it's not "professional" to not use my real name, but we are on Mastodon here and I value privacy as much as information: I hope it's not a problem if I hang out here without giving my name.

I'm a master degree in theoretical physics, so I've pratically no value nor indexes that describe my career, as if I will always have a brilliant one...

I'll mostly lurk.

Thanks for this fantastic istance!

Socrates's choices:

Scholar Social

A Mastodon instance for academics

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.

"A Mastodon profile you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"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.
