Let's not all live only on social networks, especially not centralised & walled-in networks. Create your own personal corner on the web as it was designed for! Visit my good old-fashioned #homepage at for information about me.

On my mastodon feed, I'll try to toot about various topics, mainly related to languages, natural language processing, open-source technology, privacy & security, and of course the occasional dog picture!

People who think like this are the ones who are *breaking* online learning.
