OK this is pretty cool: built-in translation is coming to Mastodon, funded by the European Commission's Next Generation Internet programme.


Ein Vater macht im Auftrag der Kinderärtzin ein Foto seines nackten Kleinkinds. Sein Google-Account wird gesperrt, alle Daten gelöscht, die Polizei ermittelt.

Der Vater hatte das Bild nicht mittels Google-Diensten geteilt, sondern über die App der Kinderklinik. Das Foto wurde vom Android-Handy automatisch in Google Photos geladen und gescreent. Solche Fälle werden sich auch hier häufen mit der #Chatkontrolle.

@OpenScienceFeed Translate Science will also be at Wikimania. We would like to talk to everyone which articles need translation the most. How do we set priorities?

This off-program Networking session will follow the Language Diversity Hub session August 13, 18:20-18:45 UTC.

Registration for Wikimania is open. Once there, go to the Networking section and join the Translate Science group. wikimania.wikimedia.org

Also if you cannot make it, do leave your thoughts here. etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/Trans

I would appreciate some help with testing a service bot prototype.

If you send a direct message to @weather with only a city name as the content, you should receive a direct reply with the current weather conditions for the given city.
E.g. "@weather berlin"

You can append a two letter country code for ambiguous names.
E.g. "@weather Paris,us"

The bot will only reply to direct messages.

More info here: envismo.social/bots/weather.ht

Feedback and bug reports welcome.

Thanks in advance.

First, experimental version of the weatherbot is no available for brave pioneers.
Send your location in a direct message to @weather and receive the current weather condition in return.

Documentation here: envismo.social/bots/weather.ht

Any problems or feedback to me please.

Don't try to follow the bot account.

fediscience.org is now running v3.5.2
Any problems, please let me know.

Hello world, this is my #introduction:
I am a doctoral candidate at the Research Group for Applied Software Engineering (Prof. Bruegge) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). My research focuses on computer science education and automated assessments of textual exercises. In addition, I am teaching the lecture courses Introduction to Software Engineering (~2,200 students) and Patterns in Software Engineering (~700 students) at TUM.

So, I've heard it's good to myself as I'm .

I teach and advise researchers on and in the . I'm also interested in everything research data infrastructure related and everything to help advance an culture. Happy to answer your questions! 🤓
