thoughts on independent scholarship 

I'm realizing that being outside of academia and researching and writing because I love it is probably a more sustainable choice for me as a scholar than being inside academia and doing those things.

For me, when my creative work is a necessity for a job it becomes more stressful and less joyful.

Been thinking about what it means for me to do scholarly work outside of academia, and I think it's making a lot of my work better quality. I feel freer?

I am rage.

I was confused why my little app that eats data from the Daily Global Historical Climatology Network (GHCNd), with its hundreds of thousands of global daily weather recording stations, couldn't tell me anything about #Taiwan.

Well. The network contains no weather stations in Taiwan.

I've emailed #NOAA asking wtf. Afraid that the data from some supranational agency that refuses to recognize Taiwan. Anyone know? ncei.noaa.gov/products/land-ba

Has the ‘great resignation’ hit academia? "exits threaten progress on diversity, equity and inclusivity ... The overwhelming narrative is that people are happier once they leave academia."

The #WMO State of the Global Climate in 2021 report:
Four key #ClimateChange indicators break records in 2021

Four key #climate change indicators – #GreenhouseGas concentrations, #SeaLevelRise, #OceanHeat and ocean #acidification – set new records in 2021. This is yet another clear sign that human activities are causing planetary scale changes on land, in the ocean, and in the atmosphere

alien 1: in summary, the humans have nearly rendered the blue planet uninhabitable. The only plan they appear to have is to migrate to the red planet.

alien 2: can they breathe the atmosphere of the red planet?

alien 1: no.

alien 2: is there material there they can eat?

alien 1: no.

alien 2: can the plants and animals of their planet live there?

alien 1: no.

alien 2: is there liquid water there?

alien 1: no.

alien 2: lol wtf?

alien 1: lol idk

Shameless self promotion! In my data visualization struggles, I often find myself searching "matplotlib colors" far too many time -- so I wrote a tool to display them in the terminal! Colorbars too :) github.com/AstroBarker/mplcolo

You might be wondering how I recognized you. Well, I was sitting in the audience is a AGU session 4 to 5 years ago, in which you were part of the panel.

-BY makes lots of sense for scientific data as mentioned. -SA is caring for the CC open ecosystem and its recognition by the author. Putting it on anything, IMO, is an auspicious political statement. Not for everyone and everything, but should be avoided judiciously.

@_dmh @ashwinvis @VictorVenema @jkanev

The nice thing about CC is abstracting out those potential scenarios into its variations. Not having a default is a point, I'd value. Same author/scientist might use -0 for one thing and -BY-NC-SA for something else.

Every word. 🔥

#introduction Hi everyone, my name's Eirini! My background is on psycholinguistic research, specifically how memory is influenced by speaking versus listening, but I've more recently shifted to reproducibility and research data management. I currently work at the Delft University of Technology teaching researchers how to make their work more open and reproducible ✨
