@acka47 Moin Adrian! Ich vermute, das liegt an der Konfiguration der Instanz. Denn eigentlich sind die Apps für Mastodon immer durchlässig für alle Instanzen, denen User_innen folgen, es sei denn, andere Instanzen wurden darauf geblockt.

How Does Mastodon Work? - @kev

If you're asking yourself "how does Mastodon work?" this post will provide an excellent answer. #Mastodon is an #opensource and #federated social network.

I find it absurd when people accuse #SciHub of "stealing" from journal publishers. It is the publishers who are stealing, from the scholars who write, peer review and edit the journals without pay, from universities and their libraries who have to pay to so their researchers can publish papers *and* to get access to them, and from the public who fund all this, through public funding, tuition fees and so on.

Simple statement at the end of "I love free software!" day: I love free software!

@dajbelshaw Just saw your presentation at ALT 2018 about the federated approach for Moodle.[1] Very promising and consistently thought out!

Have the presentations from ALT already been uploaded to PeerTube?

Please
Don't feel bad or ashamed if you spend your week-end sleeping, resting.

It's *it's purpose*.

And in itself, resting is **not** doing nothing.

It's taking care of yourself, and allowing to gather back some energy. Some time to yourself.

Resting *is* doing something, for you. And it's a good thing to do sometimes.

Released the presentation that I used for the workshop on & [1] as an .

Used the project to check out the new version 2.5 for building slides. This time I had to invest some time, but now I have a scaffold that I - and you - can (re)use.

Please find the slides as a PDF at (in German) in our university's .[2]

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.
