Hello everyone, I’m a Portuguese student starting to think about my thesis. I have an interest in understanding user’s opinions about some of Mastodon’s core features. I would love to get some advice on how to make my work the best it can be!

Thank you all very much in advance I look forward to meeting you all!

Hello everyone! This Thursday, on August 5 at 8:00 am UTC, I will be presenting about the concept of artificial intelligence at Scholar.Social’s summer school. My two main points will be a conceptualization of the line drawn between “AI” and “just code”, and the relation between concepts of AI and concepts of humans. It would be great to see many of you there, so please sign up for it if you haven’t already!
