It's really great to see how the #openaccess book series TMNLP (Translation and multilingual natural language processing, https://langsci-press.org/catalog/series/tmnlp) @ Language Science Press, edited by three colleagues and myself is progressing, and the "MNLP" part which admittedly lagged behind a bit initially is now also strengthened. Full steam ahead! #TranslationStudies

Testing a theory that dalle2 does worse at generating things the smaller they get, I discovered that it makes really mean eye charts.

Alternatively, any pieces about the potential dangers of oversimplifying the results of science without highlighting the theoretical work that goes into it?
Green, pink, orange. The last one because I like everything about traveling except the actual traveling part
I made an academic version. Pick 3 potions. The effects are permanent.

I think we all know that many academics (myself included!) struggle to keep our weekend and evening time free of work-related distractions. Voelcker investigates where this pressure to work comes from (often internally) and suggests that overwork may block creativity; taking time off can make you more productive.
