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.
Please find the slides as a PDF at (in German) in our university's #GitLab.
@syndikalista That's a good one.
In the end, one of them suggested to establish a weekly round table on techno-ethical topics, as everybody agreed that *nothing* was clear about current technical trends. They exchanged mail addresses and want to continue the discussion right away next week.
This was not what I had expected!

Evince, Okular, and highlighting / annotating PDF Show more
@dbs I tried both, Evince and Okular, for a while. Okular was quite nice, but always hung up when saving back an annotated PDF. Then I found https://code-industry.net/masterpdfeditor/ which is right now my tool of choice. Regarding #Linux it says the following on the homepage:
> The unregistered version can be used only in personal, noncommercial purposes to view documents, fill PDF forms, comment and print documents.
Works also great with zotfile for #Zotero.
While following the screenshots on the homepage and explaining the value of the tool I wished for a screenshot that better expresses the aggregated view of marked passages in the text. And I realized that Taguette helps a lot to explain qualitative research from a tool's perspective, not just from theory.
"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?

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, 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"
(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 @firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
