question about aerogels
My husband sent me the wikipedia article about aerogels, but I'm having a lot of trouble wrapping my head around them. The wikipedia article alludes to more modern aerogels not being so prone to shattering as the silica ones.
I found this article (http://www.robaid.com/tech/less-brittle-aerogels-increase-the-usability-of-the-lightest-solid-material.htm) which makes me wonder: could aerogels ever be superior to other building materials, like concrete or wood or steel (leaving aside questions of how expensive they are to produce)?

Friends, Romans, Citizens - #SummerSchool is coming, and we are asking you to sign up for the panels you want to see

I'm looking for a platform for a small community that is currently private and on Slack but wishes to grow in a safe and sustainable way.
A Mastodon instance would be perfect - the self-hosted, federated nature would fit just fine. We're looking for something that allows longer-form writing, though. (Not just Masto with a higher character limit, something that allows and has a good display for "blog post" type posts.)
anyone know good options for or have experience with closed captioning for zoom or jitsi calls? #accessibility
Get pumped from #SummerSchool we have presentations from things as diverse as patent law, poetry, the future of ice on Earth, and a slew of other amazing exciting presentations.

grad admissions process
Are there any *good* grad admissions metrics that don't have significant correlations with race, gender, or socioeconomic status?
The grads in my department want to down-weight or remove parts of our application that are likely to introduce bias or present a large cost burden, but... that's pretty much everything 😬

This symposium with Imogen Dickie and Zoltán Gendler Szabó looks like it will be interesting:
Any advice for inclusive video calls for people who are hard of hearing or deaf? Currently trying to secure funding for captioning and/or sign interpreters, but would be grateful for boosts, links to useful resources and signing/captioning services too.
Bonus if they have experience with open science domains and concepts, but I'm possibly asking for a bit too much there.
I am a philosopher who works on philosophy of language, metaphysics, and philosophy of mind.
