I've written a blog-post about the pretending-to-be-professional publisher Main take-away: #BoycottElsevier! Why? They don't care at all for science and they suck at publishing. Better go for #openAccess and practice #openScience!

Nieuwe chat voor collega's bezig met taal & spraaktechnologie () in Nederland en Vlaanderen! Omdat we vaak verspreid zijn over verschillende locaties/instituten kunnen we hier informeel in contact blijven!

#Medium now fully completed their paywalling efforts. The public page's now completely inaccessible without logging in.

Unsuspecting visitors to Medium's #articles now can't #read them unless they lock themselves into the platform.

The ability to search for new #content written by independent creators? Gone! The goal's to usurp content created by others free of charge to make you pay the centralized platform to access it.

#Plume exists to combat this, using the power of the #fediverse.

I've been working on a new high-performance FoLiA library for Rust and have just released a very first experimental version with promising benchmarks!

FoLiA v2.0 has been released! A new milestone for the Format for Linguistic Annotation; a practical XML-based format and data model for supporting a wide variety of linguistic annotation types. See

Beautiful photo of our Jaiko past weekend! She's growing up nicely. Many more photos on my homepage:

Traurige Zeiten

Nette Zufallsbekanntschaft:
"Wir sollten in Kontakt bleiben."
Ich: "Hast Du vielleicht #Facebook oder #WhatsApp?"
NZ (freudestrahlend): "Beides!"
Ich: "Dann kann ich Dir leider weder Telefonnummer noch Emailadresse geben."


@decentral1se Thanks for trying LaMachine, glad you like it! Moses is included but indeed relies on you having your own training material. There's no real out-of-the-box model in LaMachine except for Dutch-Frisian (The oersetter project).

I just published my new redesigned homepage at ! Let's not all live in centralised walled-in social networks but create our own proper corner on the web as it was designed for!

Guess what, I'm actually working on my PhD dissertation!

Interesting historical factoids 

@HylkeRozema Welkom :) Er zijn er vast wel een stuk meer hoor.

Jaiko (gnawing on the branch) on her first big walk with many breed-mates!

@gamzee Yep, she's just that cute that even her nose is a heart ;)

For the holidays, you could say thank you to some of the people who write free software you use, especially software that isn't hugely popular.

Those of us who write little-known software may go for months without hearing from a user, and it can be a little de-motivating.

Hearing from someone who actually uses one's software gives an energising jolt that can carry one through several weeks of darkness and cold and wet.
