It drives me increasingly crazy that, at the same time as we try harder in academia to include scholarship and scholars from outside the Anglophone world in international conferences and journals, journals and editors completely abdicate any responsibility for copy-editing what they publish.

There are signs and annoucements all over Schiphol informing people that they are all required to wear a mask. These are all lies.

What would be really neat is if Mastodon would let me define some algorithm parameters for what shows up in my timeline. Like, "disfavor posts by people whose timelin is more than 10% reshares, or more than 5% reshares without comment"

Social networks are so much nicer when they are small (or, my corner of them anyway.)

Just in case, you know, the Other Site implodes...
