Ich bin in den letzten Wochen öfters gefragt worden, warum ich bei den #Grünen und unserer #Kirche aktiv bin, #Linux und #FOSS propagiere und eine stetig steigende (produktive) Wut auf die aktuelle #Umwelt- und #Wirtschaftspolitik entwickle. Einer der Gründe liegt seit 10 Minuten schlafend im Bett und ich will, dass sie immer wieder in einer Welt aufwachen kann, die von hoffnungsvollen Menschen und nicht von Kosumentenprofilen und Konzernzielen gesteuert wird. #papasein #rant

What are the most important differences regarding functionality between slack.com and riot.im? What should a team switching to riot be aware of beforehand?

Discoursive representation and mapping: Does anybody know of any tools that can analyze arguments and debates more detailed than pro/con or "p said" / "q said" relationships?

42 year old me wishes 21 year old me hadn’t been talked into doing a PhD in AI and machine learning. I’d really like to be excited about all the AI/ML work going on at the moment, but all I’m seeing is the same problems/mistakes of 20 years ago, but with more CPU resources.

#gnu #linux als Standard-Wahlalternative für die Computer-Arbeitsplätze von ~35000 Student*innen? 30 stud. Gremien der #HumboldtUni haben sich bereits mit #gnuHU solidarisiert. Es bleibt eine Mammut-Aufgabe - mal sehen, wie hilfreich Mastodon(ten) sind, die dahinterliegende Idee in Form von #gnUNI an anderen Bildungsträgern zu verbreiten... alle Updates zu #gnuHU gibt es in Zukunft jedenfalls auch hier! Danke im Voraus für alle Retoots zu hu.berlin/gnuHU-linux und hu.berlin/gnUNI-linux!

Hey & this place could be a great tool for academic discourse and networking! @socrates has some cool ideas, but in the end culture shift is up to us.

Let's bring people in our academic circles actively from other social networks over to this one to help scholar.social pick up steam.

Scholar Social

Federated microblogging for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform 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 in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"An academic microblog that 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.
