Are you a software engineer or researcher working with COVID data? I’m running a study about data sharing during pandemics and I’m looking for people who can share info about restrictive data sources and data access challenges.
Pls boost to help reach others! https://covid19-data-sharing-study.github.io
Data types I am especially interested in: Data that have no strong ethical reasons to keep private, such as virus omics data and infection/death/recovery rates by geographic region.
My kind of news day:
"Geologist Finds Rare Formation Inside Rock That Looks Exactly Like Cookie Monster on Sesame Street"
One of the outcomes of overly harsh feedback is that people won't come to you for feedback next time.
This is probably also sometimes an outcome of critical-and-polite feedback, too, because our egos are easy to bruise.
Nevertheless, if giving feedback is a pain and you don't want to have to do it again, being reviewer number 2 is the way to go.
If you actually want contact? Um, be nice. <-- should be obvious but isn't
Ok, GLAM/cultural heritage & adjacent folks: I'm trying to start up a network for those of us interested in data science, and I'd love your thoughts and feedback on what would help and work for you.
Here's a blog post with some initial goals https://erambler.co.uk/blog/glam-datasci-network-what-i-want/
Also have a birdsite link if anyone wishes to boost there - https://twitter.com/yoyehudi/status/1350858959926816771
I did some interviews about this last year as well during/after wave 1. Currently I'm curious to see what has changed months later when many places are experiencing subsequent waves.

Softwas, is, of course, _very_ similar to software, only it's spelled wrong... 😅
If any of y'all are UK-based or UK-affiliated, and care about research software, come along to the Softwas Sustainability Insititute's fellowship webinar today at 3PM UK: https://software.ac.uk/fellowship-programme/2021/webinar
As well as hearing others speak, I'll talk a little about some of the benefits (financial, network, collaborators) I've gained as a fellow. Come along to hear more and ask any questions!
if you're white and you use the internet, you have a duty to ensure that the spaces you are in are not a safe space for white supremacists. no, "oh but I like this person and they've never done anything in MY group" -- listen to us. listen to what we have to say. report people to the mods or if it's an ongoing problem, *leave the fucking group and let people know why you're leaving*.
make mods explain their decisions. make it uncomfortable. make it weird.
it's the LEAST you can do.
swearing a little
shit's been bad enough recently I felt compelled to make an anonymous account and write some anonymous blogs. I hope I can come back to it in a few years when things are safer (for me, in terms of repercussions) and action an intent. Frustrated that I'm here, but unsurprised (like with.... most things in the world right now).
I like vegetables and open science
