Mutual mentorship/support/"Academics Anonymous" 

Building off the energy and community from , 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

DM @Cyborgneticz or @bgcarlisle for more details

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.

Posting something to scare off certain kinds of people from this instance 


That's all

:heart_trans_black: you all!

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 Community Standards 

Hi friends!

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"

Former archivist here. I specialize in digital records and cataloguing. Currently doing personal research on audio signal data.

Scholar Social reminder 

@egonw Np!

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

Hi friends!

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,,,, etc.) and we're trying to avoid them on

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!

hi! I'm an artist and programmer currently studying to be a systems analyst.

@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 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.
