Mutual mentorship/support/"Academics Anonymous"
Building off the energy and community from #SummerSchool, scholar.social will be hosting a mutual mentorship and support programme
The goal: to provide a venue for mutual support for people who are in academia, adjacent to it, considering entering it, or who have left it
Due to the nature of the programme, it will be intentionally a small group by invitation only, where everyone knows everyone
#introductions finally in order. I'm Joris, I'm in the last stages of my AI master trying to get my thesis of the ground. Want to do research into Natural Language Generation and Human-Computer Interaction.
Ahoi! I just moved from the Alps to the North Sea and I'm about to start my media studies PHD on the political economy of (alternative) social media, ideology in infrastructure and the fediverse in general - so being on here may count as research ;)
Updates to scholar.social Community Standards
I've made some changes to the Community Standards
The big ones are:
1. "Providing unsolicited advice to strangers" is now explicitly "unwelcome conduct" (nothing happened to prompt this, but I felt it was good to state explicitly, just in case)
2. There is now a rule against "falsely representing oneself as a member of a minority"
#introductions Former archivist here. I specialize in digital records and cataloguing. Currently doing personal research on audio signal data.
Scholar Social reminder
That would be neat
I bet I could make a bot that does that for people to subscribe to
Give me a couple days and I'll see what I can come up with
Scholar Social reminder
Don't feel like you need to go back and delete old posts or anything
But I've seen a few posts with link shorteners recently (links on bit.ly, goo.gl, ift.tt, t.co, etc.) and we're trying to avoid them on scholar.social
Link shorteners track users without their consent and obscure the destination address, which prevents users from being able to decide whether they want to visit the link beforehand
Moving forward, please expand links before posting, thanks!
#introductions hi! I'm an artist and programmer currently studying to be a systems analyst.
Hey guys! I'm a Brazilian IT and programming technician and current CompSci student @ ICMC-USP. Glad to be on the decentralized net bandwagon.
@jaranta On it, thanks!
@jaranta If you still have the email address, send it my way and I'll hit them up :)
@jaranta I don't know!
I don't see any documentation about who gets listed there or why
I just got my first academic job since finishing my PhD in 2017, so I'm celebrating with a new scholar.social account!
I'm interested in energy transitions and will be working on an electric vehicle-to-grid (V2G) trial as social researcher.
I'm also into architectural science and questioning the ubiquity of engineered solutions to human comfort.
Selfie, science, CERN, COVID19
Snuck into the ATLAS experiment’s cavern around 100 metres underground, on my first day back at #CERN since March.
Send me a DM to get the video-conference info for tomorrow.
