I linked to this Mastodon profile on my new article for New Socialist on how I want us to have a publicly owned AWS (partly to help spread platforms like this!) newsocialist.org.uk/a-state-ow

Would this be cool or is it bad: if you could give translations of your toots and people can select what language they see a toot in and which they see by default?

I feel like people would also use this to hide extra text in the translation boxes but that might lead to interesting uses too.

Or is this over complicated?

Hi Scholar.social! 👋

I and Christina Bergmann created compcog.science for keeping a list of of minority computational cognitive modellers/scientists.

There's very few of us and we want to know who's out there!

Please boost to get more names! ☺️

That sweet tea MIO stuff is incredible and I can't wait to find out it gives me triple cancer or something.

@jimi This makes a lot of sense to me, both the initial thought and the guilt. It's hard to realize that worthwhile things, especially ones we've built an identity around, are . . . how to put it . . . not priorities?

I am still a big science nerd, and used to be even more of one. But I am starting to feel like we as a society should be putting resources into sorting out social problems before investing so much in space stuff and particle physics. But I have a weird guilt for thinking that ?

How should I put the PhD I never finished on my CV? Between 2015-2017 I was implementing different probabilistic models and using technologies that might be relevant in my job search. But I don't know where/how to put "PhD I dropped out of - but got skills from" on there.

Any advice from devy friends? @LenSanook@mastodon.social @catharz @tinnion ?

anybody going out to work this morning, don't forget the plan for our peaceful revolution: to gradually extend our toilet breaks until capitalism is no longer sustainable. today's target: 17 minutes. good luck out there

Epube, a FLOSS epub reader. They say development sometimes gets hairy. I don't mean to beat around the bush, but some of the users get crabby when a certain ebooks get their end shaved off.


Gotta admit it though, the SEO is phenomenal

@Jamest shameless enough? ;)

My sister moved out of home recently (ish). Our mum went to visit her new place today, I asked how it was:

Boost my anticapitalist erotica project!! And join the mailing list!! I need submissions or it'll be embarrassing and I'll have to write loads of stories under pseudonyms which would be looong anticapitalust.com

If you've written a book, let me know. I'm almost at the end of my current reading list.
(Available for Kindle UK for preference, but any ebook considered.)

My wife and I run a website called OpenBenches.
If you spot any memorial benches while you're out and about, please can you take a photo and add them to the site?
Here's the most recent one openbenches.org/bench/8325

Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2020052500387 In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations. However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately. Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud starting June 30, 2020. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.
