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

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


#FluidDyn is an educational / research project to advance the field of #FluidMechanics through computational, experimental and data processing methods. The motivation behind this project is given here:

We develop primarily in #Python. We are also proponents of #OpenScience philosophy. This account is managed by @ashwinvis (for now). Follow us for updates about our project and in extension exciting developments in the scientific stack of Python.

I was working on calculating the standard deviation between two data points in a 2D-space when only individual standard deviations in x- and y-dimension are known. In the end, this worked with trigonometry from an elliptical SD space. I wonder why this never showed up during my university studies? Seems to me a very good way to project inter-datapoint distances in a (low) multidimensional space into a digestible figure, such as a boxplot...


Hello there!
I'm a first-year PhD student studying psychology in a small French-Canadian university. My thesis is about psychometrics and climate for LGBTQ2+ folks. I also do some work in fundamental cognition and reading. I absolutely don't consider myself an expert on any of this though, so feel free to point out my errors!

Other than that, I'm in my late 20s and trans, I like birds, video games, sweets, anime and drawing.

Looking forward to meeting you all! :)

The World Meteorological Organization (@WMO) is the oldest international organization and they have been doing from the start: coordinate how measurements are made so that they are better comparable and agree on protocols for sharing the data internationally.

With some colleagues I wrote a WMO guidance on the homogenization of climate data, i.e. making data comparable in time. This post is the deleted chapter on future research needs.

I found out that a specific subsampling of a certain network made it look like Darth Vador... do you think I can sell that to a journal? It is a brain network...

#ClimateFeedback is a group of climate scientist reviewing press articles on climate change, but there is only so much a few scientists can do & by the time the reviews are in & summarized the article is mostly old news.

With a larger group we could review more articles & have results while people are still reading it.

We could test how well such a larger group does (& how to statistically combine their grades) by comparing their assessments with the ones later published by Climate Feedback.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: your commit history is not a chronological log of what you did.

Every time you press Ctrl+Z without committing beforehand, you erase some of your code history. And that's fine: it's not informative.

Your typo fix is not going to help anyone debug an issue later. Make your commit log useful. Rebase.

#inktober, intersensus, small ontologies 

An #inktober sketch drafting ideas for an iconography of intersensus, a concept for understanding the ethics of shared sensory communication environments as a macrostate of consensual, dissensual, and non-consensual situations.

#UniversityCollegeLondon (#UCL) are opening their new Office for #OpenScience and Scholarship. Good on them, and good to see the principles (along with the promotion of collaboration and #FAIRData principles) spreading furher every day.

Hybrid vs full open-access journal 

@meisam @ashwinvis We need a bundle of strategies.
1. Flipping journal (like SCOAP3).
2. Starting new clearly better journals.
3. Encouraging people to publish their manuscripts (as physics already does a lot).
4. Plan S
5. Encouraging authors to prefer open access journals.
6. Break the power of the publishers with an independent peer review system. @GrassrootsReview
