Is there a way to hide boosts of toots of users I follow? I usually see the original message and boosts are redundant in this case.

I went to a local pool this evening. It was surprisingly refreshing.

Interesting read: Misinformation & propaganda are guaranteed to spring up around pandemics, but they won't have quite the same political baggage as elections. Any solutions & mitigations for pandemics should help against political disinformation too.

WSL's default shell setup still does very bad things with SSH and Screen.

Is Putty still the way to go in Windows land? I haven't used a windows box as a daily driver since Vista >_>

Research query 

The swim today was great. It was one of that rare powerful days when I could push trough the pain and it didn't feel like the end of the world as we know it. Even though I was in the water 5 minutes late, I managed to put my mind in the right mode

After I've restarted Firefox, Google Inbox switched to Gmail... What a good reason to migrate to a self hosted email server.

If a 13" MacBook Air user asked you for a recommendation for a #FreeBSD or #OpenBSD notebook to replace the Air, i.e. same-ish size/form factor, with reliable WiFi, working suspend, 8+ GB RAM, 500+ GB SSD and a good keyboard, what would you respond? #followerPower

I'm reviewing for www.acl2019.org and just got the papers. Looking at the titles, all fo them seem interesting to me.

It's time to read about hate speech. Any recommendations? Research papers, studies?

@socrates and Scholar Social in general.

Do you know a study which looks into why people share news on social media? What's people intent?

So far, I see that people might just share a news story they find important or give their opinion/comment. On a meta level, one can comment on the quality of a news outlet. Or even call out fake news and propaganda.

Are there studies that classify shared content similarly?

I've been dealing a lot with NFS recently, and the conclusion so far is to avoid it at all cost.

Tensorboard also looks amazing, all these models are trained at the same time!

This is uber cool, in one command I can see the training progress over all models!

It's so pleasing how well designed tools make life easy in unexpected situations. Now I'm redeploying my ML pipeline from a single machine to a cluster and it doesn't need to be modified.

It's surprisingly insightful to monitor system load by the UPS load. The setup on the left needs some tuning.

Every time the Google assistant asks me how it can help, I want to answer that it can't.
