@vidyasagar I laughed, and then had to explain what Vim is to someone who overheard me.

@vidyasagar hoping the emacs psychotherapist is across the street

@vidyasagar I would rather stay in there than getting a repetetive strain injury from emacs gym ;)

On a related note:

I had to use vi today to edit a bash script.

I remembered! 😃

I'm a proud vimmer now :blobuwu:

@vidyasagar It sounds like a good idea in theory, but then you realize you can't even use any of the equipment unless if you know the right command to enter workout mode

Well, that settles it! I guess it really is the key to fitness, life, the universe, and everything else! 🤣👍

@vidyasagar C-x C-c. C-c C-c. C-d, Q!
: fuck-the-vim-gym

@vidyasagar Emacs Fitness would really exercise your limbs. Plus, you can create your own exercise machines with the correct Meta keyword. :-)

@vidyasagar My invention was a supermarket at the top of 5 flights of stairs.

@vidyasagar In related news Emacs is being forced to rebrand as Egacs because eight megabytes and constantly swapping is pure propaganda.

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.
