Hello Mastondon-ers and -erettes.

It's just a lot of work to deal with all the different social media platforms so right now you basically just get my Twitter feed here. I do sometimes answer here as well but way less frequently. Still, thanks for being here, take a cookie and enjoy the ride.

I wonder if I should just turn off the Twitter Bridge here. Opinions?

If you had to recommend someone watch 5 TV series to really get a feel for you and your tastes what 5 would you pick?

Nein, Ahed Tamimi ist keine Friedensaktivistin. Und wer Martin Léjeune interviewt, ihn die Hamas unwidersprochen eine legitime Widerstandsgruppe nennen lässt, sich erst spät davon distanziert & nun hiermit um die Ecke kommt, dem geht’s nicht um Journalismus. twitter.com/tilojung/status/10

Malcolm Gladwell began his career as a pay-to-play Big Tobacco shill, and from there built a career pr'ing for PHARMA, banking, "broken windows" policing, and other wealthy reactionary interests.

"Es gab keinen Mob, keine Hetzjagd und keine Pogrome."

Auf dem rechten Auge blind, verblendet und kein Rückgrat. Die Botschaft an die Opfer lautet: Ihr seid nicht sicher, wir werden euch nicht schützen! Die Nazis dürfen euch weiterhin jagen. Bitter!

That (absolutely vital) twig of freedom of speech that you justifiably cherish lives on the end of a huge branch and trunk of constraint. If you want a proper argument to this effect, instead of caffeinated tweets from me, read @jtlevy on this topic.

You spent a solid millennium slowly building an institution that is imperfectly but still pretty good at having productive, substantive arguments. And guess what! It functions mostly via safe spaces with extremely strong ground rules about what's up for discussion.

Depressed by the number of academics on here who insist the sacred value of Free Speech demands putting up with all manner of flood-the-zone-with-shit / nothing-can-be-presupposed nonsense that they wouldn't tolerate for thirty seconds at a brownbag Q&A in their own department.

I'm trying to explain to my students why it's important to do the readings, or you'll have an understanding of ideas that are out of context. From today's slides:

I'm not sure if "check out my podcast" or "see my TED talk" are bigger warning signs in a Twitter bio.

Zum Stand des Solidaritätsgrades in diesem Land sei daran erinnert, dass die Leute inzwischen Notarztwägen aufhalten, aus Angst, zu spät zu einer Arbeit zu kommen, die sie krank macht.

Bei all den Texten über das Internet, die erzählen, dass wir alle durch die Digitalisierung unfrei werden, setzt @tante@twitter.com mit connected eine positive Vision über das vernetzte Zusammenleben entgegen. Ab 01.10. im Handel, auf Amazon und natürlich bei uns: ach.je/produkt/connected/

Google Play Music schlägt mir permanent deutschen Pop vor und ich weiß auch nicht, was man da tun kann? Google anzünden?

Ist das dieser Datenjournalismus, von dem alle reden?

Kann irgendjemand den krisengeilen Rechtskonservativen eine Einführung in Statistik geben?

Schreibt man d. Wahlresultate der letzten 5 Jahre fort, passiert der große Knall: Schon 2021 wäre die AfD stärkste Partei. Das vorsätzliche Nichtverstehen der eigenen Klientel – der SPD-Wähler sagt Flüchtling, die SPD versteht Rente – zahlt sich nicht aus. gaborsteingart.co

Big Bang Theory *absolutely* accurately represents Nerd Culture

"But it's annoying and full of gatekeeping dullards and presents shallow references to famous media as insider knowledge"

Auch wenn die WELT gerade nett über K.I.Z. schreibt, ist das noch lange kein Grund, Springer Medien zu verlinken. Springer sind die, die freiwillig ohne Not Julian Reichelt beschäftigen.
