motelone wants these cups to be used for tooth brushing, but I think they are a great alternative for coffee-to-go cups made of plastic. Got my first coffee from the lobby in them this morning. 👍

Discovered this lovely open-air theatre today in a park nearby. It would be great to recite some poems there, hear a string quartet play. Never heard that anyone did anything there before.

Love the concept of New York Hall of Science to make children vote and paricipate by using tools. Finally an analogue statistic comes out of it. This is a clever way of education for different things: voting, gathering data, visualizing data and participation.

Yesterday we had an inspiring workshop " and : Some Issues" at TUHH

Speakers were

- Steffen Steinert, PhD Candidate, (LMU)
- Mario De Caro, Professor in Moral (Roma Tre University /Tufts University)
- Mirko D. Garasic, Research Scholar ( Chair in Bioethics and Human Rights)

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 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.
