introduction 

Hi everyone! :ThisIsFine:

I am a fourth-year PhD student in systems engineering. I love this engineering discipline and I want to apply it to systems that sustain life (livingry!).

My research is about developing the open tools and model-based architecture for a computing system that is trustworthy and serves the user.

Would love to meet others who recognize the social dangers of modern computing and want to discuss alternatives from first principles.

Peace! ✌️

Read this morning:

An Open Letter to the Lead Authors of β€˜Protecting 30% of the Planet for Nature: Costs, Benefits and Implications.’

some pretty devastating feedback! - said the authors of that paper were trying to invent a new form of .

instead of grading papers this semester, I'll be co-authoring the class slides and writing the quizzes for a new course.

alright - I sent my paper draft to three professors at my university and a PhD student who can respond to ideas about social justice and climate change.

my research's audience? uh..well...pretty...pretty much other scientists....mostly just other scientists. yeah

so is it normal to not be able to find anyone who will read your paper drafts? including advisors, committee members, professors, friends, et al.

should I just pay someone to read my paper and give me feedback? like really...

SolarWinds: The more we learn, the worse it looks.

While you've been distracted by the holidays, coronavirus, and politics, the more we learn about the SolarWinds security fiasco, the worse it looks.

Gotta endure a day of schoolwide Zoom "inservice" meetings. This means I'll be blasting Korean grindcore goodness from Jardim de Flores as antidote to the admins' treacly corporate-brain-stealing speak: nervealtar.bandcamp.com/album/

I should study Soviet design. Seems they built things to be repaired and maintained using common tools.

Am I wrong on that? Any recommendations?

Hi #scicomm fellows, just discovered this instance so I migrated here from nasqueron.

I'm a postdoc in #ComplexSystems, currently working in #ComputationalNeuroscience but in the process of reconversion towards #environmental issues.

Interested in #sustainability and #foss, #sf and #illustration, #japan and some more...

Hi, everyone! I'm a PhD student in bioengineering, and I love designing and building hardware+software tools. For my thesis, I'm studying challenges and strategies for open-source medical devices for global health equity: how might platforms and communities be built to support cooperative production of medical devices appropriate for local contexts, all the way from invention to implementation?

preparing for this consultation in a thousand hours and realizing that one of the difficulties my committee is having with it literally comes from political science being so rigid with subfield boundaries that the idea of blurring them at all is incomprehensible

and this is why academia needs some shaking up
