Being prepared and able to react at the right time, in the right place, saves lives and livelihoods.

Just realized I never did an on Fediscience...
So hi there! (better late than never)
I'm a physicist by training doing a postdoc on and

I like books, and I'm generally interested in and
I mostly talk about my research fields here, if you want to hear about FLOSS, (in) and , check my alt: @tfardet

The university of Bonn is organizing an online seminar:

"Why Internationalization? - Old and new rationales in diverse higher education systems" uni-bonn.de/die-universitaet/v

It made sense in the past. With the ease with which we communicate globally nowadays, I wonder whether it still makes sense.

Carleton et al. (2020): Valuing the Global #Mortality Consequences of #ClimateChange Accounting for #Adaptation Costs and Benefits, #NBER Working Paper 27599

The new study estimates
that the mean increase in #mortalityrisk due to climate change "is valued at roughly 3.2% of global GDP in 2100"

Mortality rates increase in extreme cold and hot #temperatures, especially for the elderly, flattened by both higher incomes and #ClimateChangeAdaptation.

Fawkes, a software developed by the Univ. of Chicago, can be used to modify your images at a pixel level so that they look they same to humans, but can no longer be used for automated image (i.e. person) recognition.
Would people be interested to have this integrated into Mastodon so it can be used on images they upload?

I wrote an announcement of to explain to people who do not know Mastodon yet why it is good for them and society.

Please help create some buzz on the legacy silos. So that we can move some scientists from to past to the future.

The announcement of FediScience got 500 boosts.

More important would be to spread the news outside of Mastodon. They need more explanation, so I wrote the above blog post to explain why Mastodon is better for us & for society.

Please spread on social networks this Monday at 3pm (Berlin), 2pm (London), 9am (New York). You will find a post here:

P.S. Yes, I know I used . My mistake.

Good morning everyone! As I'm on holiday and using this on my phone, I was wondering if there was a good app for mobile devices for mastodon that anyone can recommend?
