@mszwiebel: i know that total freedom isn't for everyone but i feel like the way the education system is setup is abelist, racist, founded on distrust and stuck in the 90s withou a internet connection. With so much good education online the role of local lecturers changes a lot. I wish we would allow for individual learning styles and focus on guidance not on grading. #goinggradeless #gradeless #education
in the last year i had barely contact to uni officials or had any seminars. I worked and learn autonomous yet i have learned more than the two years prior. If i had to choose another uni, i would choose one that knows that the only one who can decide on the seminars, the current workload and topics of research is the the individual student. Grades, compulsory seminars and deadlines are a distraction for both the students and the ones guiding them.
i've watched a few videos of male leftist youtubers. They had strong male energy without being transphobic, homophobic or aggressive. For me, as i grew up, being surrounded by males was almost always a bad experience and often mentally and physically dangerous. I wish i would have known some of those men. I think i would be able to interact differently with them. To this day, i can't feel safe around them - that's fucking sad. #men #masculinity
a member of my closest family drifted to the german alt right. We often fight about the bullshit he is saying. I'm protecting myself and i'm shielding the rest of my fam from his bullshit but it's hard to see someone you love sinking deeper and deeper in hate. In the last years i had a taste of the media he consumes and the level of manipulation, misinformation, hate and agitation is unfathomable. The more i argue the deeper he goes. Sometimes i think it's my fault. #noafd
i wanted to make #opensource projects for a long time. My skills with code are kind of useless. While in hospital for my GRS, i met a woman who is involved with #OpenStreetMap. Talking to her convinced me that it's not about how "useful" my contribution is, but how i want to live, work and share. I'm now working on my diploma project and i will publish everything under #CreativeCommons Share Alike 4 licence just because i think it's the right thing to do and it makes me happy. #foss #cc
I'm listening for the first time to the LP of Sonic Seasonings by Wendy Carlos. She released this in 1972 ->6 years before Brian Eno's Ambient 1! I think it's beyond beautiful. I'm drawing schemetics while listening and i'm having the best time right now. If you look it up, she released the LP pre Transition as far as i know, there are only deadname LPs.
#mathematicians be like: "Hey we have this beautiful clean language called #mathematics but how can we make it a real pain in the ass to get into...let's use this ancient alphabet and for the signs people are already familiar with... we put some random glyphs as little cute hats to make it more interesting for them. Also let's make only SOME of the multiplication signs silent."
