@Welchering Danke, das passt. Mache mit meinen Studis dieses Semester eine Veranstaltung zu "Architekturen des Webs". Wir werden OER mit dem Beaker Browser bauen und vielleicht auch in IPFS einsteigen. Das Fediverse ist dabei die machbare Alternative zum Bestehenden.

@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.


@Downes Thanks a lot for sharing your experience. These are very good hints how to set up the course. I will share back my experience and OER.

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.

@kensanata Do you know about any research on this behaviour change, especially when talking about scholarly writing?

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?

@crash You could go with Ardour, which is more complex but great! I recommend the videos by @unfa to learn it.

@VickyRampin First of all I mean backups and best practices of daily jobs to secure the work one has done. The sysadmin stuff will be alright I guess as we would host Taguette on university servers.

Hi @VickyRampin! I'd like to ask you a question about . Two of my BA students need to analyze transcripts of interviews they have conducted. I would like to introduce them to . Although it would be possible and easy for them to set up two local installations, I'd prefer one web-based and Docker-based installation for them. The only thing that I worry about is how to secure this installation from data loss. Do you have any experiences with that?
