If you've got some spare time today, you're new to the #Fediverse, and just went with mastodon.social as the default option, why not explore some other instances?

You can do this by:

1. Going to joinmastodon.org/communities and browsing

2. Checking out which instances your existing friends / new contacts are on

3. Searching hashtags relevant to you and seeing common instances people tend to be on who use those hashtags

4. Asking people to recommend an instance based on interests you state

Experimenting with hybrid group work in my Python class. Those who are present collaborate with others who participate in Zoom, and it works very well. It's great to see how a student's screen can be shared in class and at the same time in Zoom. Discussions are quiet, friendly and supporting.

@aral Had time to inspect your Small Web project site.js yesterday for the first time: great initiative! Also thanks for the hint to ngrok. Will try both in class next week.

@aral This could be of interest for you, I think:

The unexpected persistence of non-corporate platforms: The role of local and network embeddedness

An excellent podcast on and with Hannah McGregor.

I especially like the idea of the class room as a micro public space, publics (plural) in general and the "ungrading project".

Also, the discussion on the relationship of research and teaching made me think.

Good morning @Downes! I'm in the middle of planning my autumn course on "Architectures of the Web". Ball's Metaverse, the Fediverse and the Old Web are topics I want to deal with hands-on using Beaker browser, IPFS, Raspberry and static site generators.

I know that you also had courses on the distributed/decentralized web in the past. Do you have any key learnings from your work with students?

There is *the Fediverse*, *the Manyverse* and the *Metaverse* when speaking about new versions of the web. What would you call *the Old Web* in similar "*verse" terms?

Giving kids Chromebooks in schools is like serving them candy for lunch. It’s something you’d do if you were either clueless or hated their guts.

What I’m trying to say is stop normalising surveillance in schools, you absolute muppets.

Excited to announce the next @bleeptrack@twitter.com & blinry project: ✨ The Everything Exhibition ✨, a generator that creates virtual 3D exhibitions for any topic, based on open data. Supported by the @prototypefund@twitter.com!

Took some time and set up a space to aggregate and curate scientific communities and topics on #Matrix. It can be hard to find good, serious communities relevant to your interests, so this is my initiative to make it easier.

It has subspaces for natural sciences, #mathematics and computer #science (which also has a subspace for programming languages), as well rooms such as "Ask Science" and "Philosophy of Science".

For anyone interested, you can find the space via this link: matrix.to/#/!lBZPyclsQiWAwbHjT

Boosts are welcome. Would be nice if this could be a thing, especially given the experimental support for LaTeX in Element's composer it could be of some interest to scientific communities.

BookWyrm is the Federated GoodReads Replacement I Didn’t Know I Needed

If you aren’t familiar with the concept, #GoodReads is an Amazon-owned social platform that integrates directly with their Kindle offering. #BookWyrm is an #opensource, #federated
alternative designed by Mouse Reeve, and is supported by Patreon donations.

write more than human readers are able to read. More and more we make use of to deal with that mass of .

Keeping that in mind I'm asking myself: (Does|Should) writing change when machines are our readers?
