Hearing strong indications that lawmakers will try to move the Kids Online Safety Act (#KOSA) during the "lame duck" session. This is a terrible bill that won't make kids safer online but will subject them to censorship and surveillance. It could lead to biometric age verification, widespread removal of LGBTQ+ content, and a bunch of other bad crap. Very few civil society groups have spoken out against it. We need #LGBTQ groups especially to sound the alarm. Plz help spread the word if you can
Please retoot 🤣!
📢 My group is actively recruiting new PhD students interested in building interactive tools to study and improve urban accessibility. We're particularly interested in candidates who have background in data science, GIS, and/or computer vision. See: https://jonfroehlich.github.io for more!
Together, let's transform the future of urban access! 🏙👩🦯👩🦽👩🦼🛴🚴♂️
This is a big deal.

SUCH a cool experiment out of
the Harvard Library Innovation Lab: https://archive.social
Allows you to capture a thread from Twitter and archive it in sealed PDFs to attest to legitimacy.
Could be enormously useful to journalists, archivists, etc, particularly with Twitter facing a perilous future.
mindfulness-y thing that i noticed recently
sometimes when i run into a hard problem, this reaction pops up where i instantly throw my hands up and go "damn! 😠 i dont know how to do this!" it has a feeling of finality/resignation to it as well.
trying to notice that reaction and remind myself that, well, yes... that's normal! that means this is an interesting new problem! and make some room for peaceful thinking about it and for other emotions besides 😠.
