Also in a new year spirit: I've had my Fairphone 2 for two years now, and I've had Fairphone Open on it for a year.

@twsh congratulations on getting one without a manufacturing defect.

@celesteh I did have to swap my camera and power buttons. But I have no complaints otherwise.

@twsh Mine is also allright, but my wife's has a broken microphone and the customer service team has been a nightmare.

@celesteh Particularly because ease of repair was supposed to be a selling point.

@twsh I'm still dealing with customer service and haven't gotten a part yet. It may yet be easy to sort out.

Scholar Social

A Mastodon instance for academics

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

"A Mastodon profile 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.
