Excited to have the work of one of my bots included in this show in Mexico City.

Still pretty disappointed that our local station had it so that football preempted a real game like extreme miniature golf.

Recently found a DOI for an article published in 1973. Good to see DOIs minted for articles going back that far into a publishers catalog. What is the oldest article with a DOI assigned? @CrossrefOrg

I'll have screenshots and video throughout the tutorial, but what are other effective ways to keep everyone on or close to the same step?

I need to give a short (10 minute) tutorial for a group leading them through a multistep registration process. What are some formats for tutorials you find easy and clear? Examples of effective ones?

Instantpot saves the day for a quick take on vegan hoppin' john. Looking forward to skippin jenny tomorrow.
Best of luck and prosperity to you and yours in the new year.

Going through old email. Opened ad from hotel. Immediately got a call from that hotel chain. Very creepy.

hypnochondriac: someone with a false sense of their ability to hypnotize others.

Just got a scare when I found this Halloween bug on the arm of my coat. What is it?

Saw an eboard advertisement today that read: NO MORE HARDWARE

What are the best ways of going from a citation to finding a DOI? Could be either plain text citation or denormalized but fielded citation data. @workshop_oc

Huh. Unsuspended within minutes. Really makes you wonder why some other things take so long to do when they're the right thing to do.

I really did not think I made a convincing enough argument to unsuspend.

I wouldn't have written this thread if I thought that it would get unsuspended and definitely wouldn't have if I had any hope of it getting unsuspended so quickly.

Well, they're all suspended now, but I really only want to get this one back up and running. The exhibit was, unbeknownst to me, delayed for a long time due to an earthquake so I was surprised to have heard it was finally going forward again. I know this work is just a trifle, but it feels nice to have it recognized as art in a gallery. A dream for it to happen with something I've done.

I'm so upset that the birb site suspended one of my art bots earlier this year. Later this month some of its work is going to be exhibited outside the US, and it would have been nice to show the live version as well.

I've wanted to set up a personal Mastodon instance for my bots so something like this can't happen again but I don't know that I'll have the time to get it done in time.

I want to start the "speaker notes are not for you the speaker" movement.

You put so much work into your beautiful presentation with nearly contentless slides, so why not write out some notes to get greater impact from all the work you put into it?

Show older is a GLAM-themed Mastodon Instance.
