Working on a workshop idea I might pitch to host at my alma mater this fall:

Anonymity on the Internet
Seeking to stimulate mutual learning between the humanities and computer science disciplines by exploring and problematizing what it means to be anonymous, have an identity, how to achieve either, and why both are necessary for a just and civil society.

I’m hoping to employ Freirian pedagogical methods to explore the importance and necessity of interdisciplinary work and exploration, as well as how that necessity impacts how we ought go about technical training.

Does anyone know of good FOSS dictation software? In my brief search on the web most of the options out there are built for research and/or geared towards using speech recognition for executing commands.

I just want to feed it a file and get a transcription output. Must be on device, I don't want to use a cloud service for this, cli is preferred.

Check out my super cute planner refills that just got here!

selfie, eye contact 

I have wanted overall shorts for years, and today I finally worked up the courage to buy myself a pair and wear them out in public. I love them so much!

I’ve been mulling over what it might look like and how it might be useful to offer an activitypub powered social network to local orgs for marginalized folks. For example, how it much be doable/useful to offer queer folk in my area a different platform to organize and interact on. Anyone know of communities who have already tried this?

@plants Check out this mullein I found near my house! Its like 3ft tall (I guess they get to 6ft?!). They are a super soft and fuzzy plant.

Another summary of my research! I'm really excited for some new papers and areas of study that I'm discovering that I think will be really fruitful.

I still have not gotten to reading anything specific about ActivityPub, but I'm continually thinking about how some of these ideas would interact with it.

I am going to take a break from research this week. I've been pushing myself hard on it and it's been fun, but I've been neglecting other things in my life to do so.

Cat yawn, big teeths 

I wanted to snap a pic how how cutely she was sleeping but the floor creaked when I entered the room and she woke up so I had to wait for this shot instead.

One of my favorite things about mastodon is that instead of just seeing screenshots of text on other social media, toots usually just contain the actual text and a link to the original post. More accessible, and it makes it really easy to copy paste that text to share elsewhere.

I'm working on a research paper about building communities with decentralized web technologies. I've decided to publish weekly progress reports as a way to collect my thoughts and get over my apprehension of sharing my work.

Today my therapist prompted me to start on a particular topic for a research paper. I feel silly that I hadn’t organized myself on this topic sooner, but w/e I’m doing it now and this is a badass intersection of my skills and interests. Also I read one paper, took notes, and have like 20 more lined up all neatly organized in a document 🤓

Selfie, eye contact behind sunglasses 

Today I’m pretty hot. Both figuratively and literally. Also I really need to learn how to smile in selfies lol.

I set out on a project to make a braided belt today. I ended up needing about twice as many strands as I was expecting to fill up a buckle and quickly got lost in a huge tangle. So I made a loom! I'm intensely proud of this creation :boost_ok:

@SummerSchool hey I'd like to advertise in some academic circles outside of Mastodon. Am I correct in assuming a fediverse account will be required in order to participate?

Ha! Finally got the web fontend working again after my migration to Hometown! Phew. What a relief.
