My wife thinks I'm out with a girl. I had to take a selfie with @codewiz to prove I wasn't. Then she looks at the photo and says "he doesn't look Italian" lol

FYI good beer at mikkeler at zhongshan MRT.

A small soldier event at the kids hotel I'm staying at. They give kids camo to dress up in and they have an obstacle course setup in the back. Also a slide playground thing with a cam net on it 😂

Starting to get Arabic ads on my Xiaomi phone now. I think my pi-hole, and Firefox with Privacy Badger, ublock origin are throwing them off the scent.


Went to Taiuan-e-tiam book store and treated myself to a new book.

Found this book in the exhibition, Design Our World Gendered Innovations Exhibition. It's about why women are missing in history books: scientists, engineers, doctors, and designers.

These cute, little figurines were on the light switch at Nest cafe.

Having a Sicilian coffee at Nest cafe with a bit of lemon cake. Reading a book and enjoying some quiet time.

My new book arrived!!!! Early birthday present for me.

This book is about the near future where rich people can afford to walk around with air purifier helmets but the poor can't and other stuff. Sounds like a fun YA novel.

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 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.
