#introduction Hello everyone! I am a scientist @CNRS, in computational biophysics and the methodology of computational science. The second topic puts me at the interface with computer science and software engineering. Computational reproducibility has been a major topic for me over the last years, and now I am looking into computational media (rather than tools) for doing scientific research.

For those of you who want to discuss #sociology and get to know new people I just started a group: @sociology

Follow the group if you want to receive news and mention it if you want to share a post.

What are some software you use in your science?
I use:
- R/Rstudio
- imageJ
- Zotero
- Inkscape
- Arduino IDE
- Raspberry Pi OS
- Sumatra PDF

Noch ein bisschen was für die #neuhier:

Auf Mastodon kann man einen Status “Boosten” oder “Favorisieren.” Das Zweite ist für Dich, ein Weg Dir Statuse zu markieren, die Du nicht im Gewimmel verlieren willst. Anders als bei Twitter gibt es hier nämlich keinen Algorithmus, der aus “Likes” zusammenbastelt was man als User sieht. Ein Post mit 3000 “Favoriten” wird also ganz genau so wie eines ohne diese angezeigt.

Das Boosten ist anders: wer auf Instanz A sitzt, der sieht seine lokale Timeline (die Menschen auf der eigenen Instanz) und die Posts derer denen er folgt. Oh, und die Posts, die diese Menschen “geboostet” haben.

Wenn Dir also ein Post gefällt, und Du denkst, dass es Anderen die dieser Person noch nicht folgen, auch gefallen könnte, dann klicke das “Boost” Icon. Wenn Du einen Status für Dich selbst speichern willst, dann das “Favorite” Icon.

Auf anderen Fediverse Frontends (z.B. Misskey) ist das ein bisschen anders, aber auch nicht ungleich.

quick #introduction

testing out the fediverse (again)

I'm an academic studying #sociology, culture, #cognition, #language, #stratification, #computational social science among too many other things....

I also work on natural language processing (#nlp), word #embeddings, and recently pushed (with co-developer) an #R package to #CRAN called text2map: culturalcartography.gitlab.io/

I'm also interested in #FOSS, #privacy, #linux, #dataviz, #scifi, #horror, running... my dog Galileo

Okay, it's time to tell new users a secret about Mastodon.

Mastodon is (whispers) part of a much bigger network 😮

Mastodon servers use an open standard called ActivityPub to talk to each other. That's how you interact with people on other Mastodon servers.

But, dozens of other federated networks also use ActivityPub, so (this is the good bit!) you can follow people on these other networks from your Mastodon account!

For example:

PixelFed (pixelfed.org) is a photo sharing network, here's a random example account @Iancylkowski

PeerTube (joinpeertube.org) is a video sharing network, with a p2p system that allows videos to go viral even on small servers, here's a random account @craftykat

BookWyrm (joinbookwyrm.com) is a social reading site, an open alternative to Amazon's Goodreads, here's a random account @mouse

Together, Mastodon and these other services form... The Fediverse :fediverse:

This MOOC on #OpenScience from TU Delft might be of some interest:

The team running it are supported by the amazing Open Life Science mentoring programme of which @yoyehudi recently became Executive Director 🎉
:boost_requested:

If you're using #RStats on Windows, there are some potentially big changes in the new version 4.2.

R Admins take note!

On non-English locales especially, possibly the biggest change is the switch to using UTF-8 as the native encoding. Even if you use UTF-8 for scripts, this might cause unexpected results and "broken" strings.

As explained in the release notes, other major changes include:

- Dispenses with support for 32 bit systems

- Changes to default directories to match Windows conventions

- Rtools has been upgraded to Rtools42

A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.

Don't want to be patronizing (pun intended) but I think it is a good thing to support FOSS also in a more tangible way.

Jetzt gibt es unser Buch "Ada&#Zangemann - Ein Märchen über Software, Skateboards und Himbeereis" auch als Hörbuch 🤗

Important information for Ukrainian researchers 👩‍🔬🇺🇦

We have launched ERA4Ukraine, a one-stop-shop portal for you with all relevant information on:

→ job opportunities
→ diploma recognition
→ housing
→ web support and information

#StandWithUkraine

Together with Frederik Aust (University of Amsterdam & University of Cologne), I had the pleasure of teaching a workshop on "Reproducible research practices for psychologists" (which should also be of interest to researchers from other disciplines), in which we covered R Markdown, Git (+ GitHub & GitLab) as well as some other tools (e.g., Docker & Binder). You can find our materials here: github.com/crsh/reproducible-r

Hello everyone! Time for an #introduction :

I'm a postdoctoral lecturer and researcher in the field of #usableSecurity, which combines #sociology, #HCI, and #security and #privacy. I work in digital transformation of the public sector and tend to look at all neighboring fields, such as #eGovernment, #diversity, #inclusion and #inclusiveDesign, #workCulture and #agile transformation.

I'm always open for #speaking at conferences or other venues, feel free to drop me a message!

I maintain FediScience together with @FrankSonntag. Do reach out to us with any questions or when people make you feel less welcome.

Once we have enough people here, we would like to transfer the ownership of this server to an association. The main limit would probably be finding enough people interested in engaging in such an association.

This association could receive donations, determine the rules, hold elections and appoint moderators.
