Academia: Publish or perish!
Journals: Yes, signing away your rights to receive royalties for your work was certainly done voluntarily and without coercion this sounds legit
Guys, like CSV files are literally the best. They are easy to parse, make, script etc. I just wanted everyone to remember that. #KnowingHowToAutomateThingsMakesYouLookLikeAWizardToNormies

Long - Call for us Fediverse denizens to start making TV shows Show more
Hey Town and Greater fediverse,
I'd like to talk about TV.
I want to see us producing independent television programming.
Talk shows, fiction, sports (even if it's just the local little league or school league), news.
I want to see us making things to entertain one another.
I want to help create and spread these things.
I want to see us sharing tips and tricks, intro bumpers, animations (2D and 3D), music.
(You know how people sell video game assets on itchi.io? Why can't we do the same kind of thing with TV show assets and services? CC-BY-SA that stuff, and share your source files!)
There is no reason we couldn't have something as well produced as, say, The Computer Chronicles ( https://archive.org/details/ModemsBu1985 ) with a minimum of effort.
(well, there's one reason. Gary Kildall isn't with us anymore, and his insight and vision is sorely missed.)
Nothing like going to the local Korean restaurant and realizing that they have decorated for Lunar New Year and you haven't. #GlaresFromWife
Gov Shutdown STRIKE Show more
"La Guardia Airport shutdown due to mass-sick call ins"
1 million federal employees unpaid 35 DAYS, risking death rationing insulin rather than their kids starving or losing their house bankrupted by $600 meds at the ER. US response: "Let them eat bank loans they don't qualify for!"
FUCKING US-WIDE STRIKE!
If France the shutdown would end in a 700-city revolt faster than a caviar-guzzling Davos attendee can wire Cayman funds for a $237 mil apartment

People are always befuddled when I say that I don't want Trump impeached. I've lived under Pence's rule in Indiana. He's a authoritarian theocrat who tried to push anti-LGBT / pro-Christian legislation whenever given the chance (in the name of religious freedom). He believes his beliefs are the only beliefs that matter. Trump is a slightly amusing buffoon, Pence is terrifying.
Hmmm CBS goes after Star Trek fan film that fans feel is more "Star Trek" than the official thing now. Disney goes after Star Wars fan film that fans feel is more "Star Wars" than recent official offerings. I can't determine if it's just flat out greed (most likely scenario), or if they are literally getting their feelings hurt. I mean I think they should just hire fans to make things, but what would I know...

This week on Chronicles & Commons: Explore the Earth's core! In this episode, I look at the pulp fiction ideas of a hidden world at the very center of the Earth, starting with the inimitable Jules Verne.
