Also if you, dear reader, have suggested #thresholdconcepts for #mathmatics, please reply with your suggestion. (I do already have a bunch of research on this, so things like "negative" numbers and sets are strong candidates for threshold concepts.)

I want to do a bit of research on opinions on federation for my #decentwebeu project. I'm digging for arguments in favor of decentralising. Please boost and/or answer any of these questions:
1) How aware are you of the federated nature of this network in your day-to-day use?
2) Which, if any, concepts of federated networks do you find challenging, confusing or foreign?
3) Why are federated networks "better" than centralised social networks (silos)?
(The last question is biased, roll with it)

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

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 @firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
