"The Rise and Demise of RSS" Show more
Excellent article on the rise and fall of #RSS by Sinclair Target. Not just a precise story of an unfortunate fork it can also be read as an appeal to not repeat the same mistakes from the past when developing new frameworks for #decentralization and #federation.
Dealing with #ActivityPub and the discussion about its pros and cons we should set up a moderating unit to accompany further development.
The tutorials at ProtoSchool are about IPFS and the like which is good. But I wonder if #ActivityPub and non-blockchain-based federation should appear there, too.
Should we ask if ProtoSchool could be a place for that? Should we write such a tutorial?

Writing the policy was a collaborative process with colleagues and presidents that I could participate in as a co-author.
Looking forward to observing what effects it has when going forward to further opening up #science and teaching.

just downloaded all my instagram data, and once i stare at it for long enough, i'm going to write myself a script to turn it into a big static archive on my own site, and then i can purge my instagram account.
(i'll share the script if it's not too cumbersome for a not-me person to use it!)
Digital floor plans; This is where we live in Show more
When playing with https://35c3.bleeptrack.de/ I realized that it's not just circuit diagrams that we see but also floor plans of the digital housings we live in. Sometimes there are doors, sometimes not, sometimes it's a loft, sometimes a hut.

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 @email@example.com 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.
