There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.

Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.

There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science

fediscience.org/invite/j6X8z7q

Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.

Me, yesterday: Tuesday is off, so Monday night I'll go somewhere dark and get a good view on the comet

Stop mirroring your Twitter account to the fediverse, especially these retweets of a single picture without any caption or comment.

We used to say the Web had shrunk to four websites where people posted only screenshots from the other three, let's not add a fifth one to that dumpster fire.

GitHub is a perfectly fine piece of software that won't have inconsistent displays of the same fucking data.

Oh wow I have a postage stamp from Fiume in that collection.

The Free State of Fiume has existed for four years only. How rare is this?

wow, look at the rich details of #OpenStreetMap in comparison to #GoogleMaps:
while Gmaps looks like a work with MS paint, OpenStreetMap shows you a full construction plan incl.lifts, ticket vending maching, public telephone, recycling container, rubbish bin and also so many many more shops in the building:

Maybe that's why some have chosen to just *decide* the game is done even though it's still a buggy mess that's far from whatever was promised during the crowdfunding campaign, slap a 1.0 version number and a full price tag on it, and start churning DLCs and microtransactions.

Looking at you, Ark and Rust.
