Pinned toot

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

Pinned toot

I was looking for a tool in to do ...
I did not find anything I really liked, but stumbled on an old git repo with promising PRs:

A day later, I have a good enough tool for my use cases:

If you want to check it out or hunt bugs, it's now on Pypi: pip install mpl-chord-diagram

We're so happy to be here with you folks from the #fediverse ๐Ÿค— To have the ability to share our playlists curated with love and feature these great bands with you in total freedom without participating to surveillance capitalism is precious ๐Ÿ’Ž Thanks for being here with us ๐Ÿ˜ฝ We appreciate you and deep thanks to all the great people working on #activitypub #mastodon and all what's needed to make that possible ๐ŸŒบ

just saw the word "comics" and I'm like "ooh, what branch of -omics is that"?

๐ŸŒŽ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ I'm working on a #map of #Mastodon servers "near me" basically mapping servers that are region-specific, as a way for folks to find Mastodon users in their region. Blue = signed on to the Mastodon Covenant, Green = I"m not sure they did.

This is my first time using #openstreetmap so I'd be grateful of any and all feedback, and offers to collaborate - I assume I can share the map for editing somehow ๐Ÿคท

Here's the link:

Hello Fediverse!

It's been more than 60 days since "FEP-a4ed: The Fediverse Enhancement Proposal Process" was received.

I kindly request final comments before the proposal is finalized.

If there are no objections the proposal will be finalized in two weeks (on 18th of January).

Thank you!

intel CPU history 

intel has made a fuck ton of CPUs. do you know how many? lots of them. every new process requires new factories and all kinds of waste. but did you know there's a DARK secret? ok maybe not DARK or a secret, but something really worth digging in to. so let's look at the history here

I am a math undergrad at university of Pisa.
I am quite lacklustre mathematically, and I don't disdain any particular topic; I may be more inclined towards stuff related to logic though.
Apart from that, I guess I like anything related to how our mind works, sysadmin stuff, economics & politics, and lots of other misguided researches.
I play Go sometimes.
I hope this instance will be fun ๐Ÿ™€

Is there any evidence that hellsite shadow bans posts that mention masto/fedi? Nothing I tweet exactly goes viral but I get a little trickle of likes & retweets that suggest that people at least see things I say. Yet whenever I mention mastodon it's just crickets.

It's very possible that people just aren't interested in that, but I'd like to know if others have a similar experience.

I get that #Signal might not be people's first choice, but I don't understand people gloating over its growing pains. Surely it's incontrovertible that even if it's not your perfect dream solution, it's a massive improvement over the status quo whose success should be celebrated? If only as a gateway to whatever pet project you're rooting for.

I love this low detail cat model Wikipedia used to try to explain how cats land on their feet.

An new "Atlas for the Aspiring Network Scientist" is out, by Michele Coscia, and they published it on :)

(disclaimer: I did not read it, but the fact that the PDF and source are openly available makes it worth sharing in my opinion)

If someone posts something that breaks your instance's rules, you can report them to your instance admin. The admin will then decide what action to take, such as a warning or a ban.

Click on the "..." underneath the message you want to report, select "Report", make sure at least one message is selected and click "Submit".

If they are from another instance, there's also an option to report the person to their own instance admin too, who can delete the account.

Hi everyone!
My name is Hรฅkon and I'm a PhD student in computer science. I'm using machine learning to study ecological behavior patterns in farmed salmon and general time series analysis.

I am the main author of two papers:



And a co-author of one paper:


I'm a heavy emacs user and rely on org-mode, org-roam and org-ref for my day to day work.

Looking forward to get to know you all!


hmmm, it seems whatever happened during our upgrade to v3.3.0 has not just broken the API but also some of the admin functions.

Anyone else had this?


I am Victor Venema. I was born in , The Netherlands, and studied physics there. My PhD was about measuring cloud structure. I currently work on the of climate station data in , Germany, and on @GrassrootsReview.

I am also one of the admins of . We would like to create a friendly place to talk about science, but feel free to talk about anything. Please notify Frank Sonntag @admin or me early of unfriendly behaviour.
