Ooohhh... I think I've uncovered a new variant of citation practice:

The "begrudging-dripping-with-contempt-footnoted citation"

A "hybrid" course at in which the instructor and all registered (paying) attendees were remote. Someone was guarding the door to make sure nobody snuck in to watch the Zoom session being projected to the completely empty room.

Amazing guest lectures at @UWComm's online communities class this week! @kayleachampion presented several of her papers on anonymity seeking in peer production and @sohwng talked about why people participate in small communities. Class syllabus here: wiki.communitydata.science/Onl

"The Risks, Benefits, and Consequences of Prepublication Moderation: Evidence from 17 Language Editions" FlaggedRevs kept low-quality contributions from ever becoming visible, without major effects on contribution volume.

Nothing more confusing that pasting a long string into a text editor and having it be EXACTLY the window width.

Why isn't it wrapping? Why can't I get to the end of the non-wrapped line? Gah!

Even worse if it's a random string, like a hash or public key.

Ever wonder why the ligaments that connect your upper and lower legs were historically called your "crucial" ligaments?

It's because you kneed them.

It was so great hearing about all the stuff that folks at @haystack_csail are up to! Thanks @ACM_CSCW for prompting us to try "lab speed dating" and @sohwng for making it happen. Any other research groups out there want to connect with @comdatasci folks?

Should online communities require accounts? My paper with @aaronshaw tries to answer this question. We started this project YEARS ago but its finally out in print in Communication Research! We've put together a very short video summarizing the work!

Should online communities require accounts? @makoshark & @aaronshaw provide an answer in a new paper that was recently published in the journal Communication Research.
We've put together a short video (below) and blog post (blog.communitydata.science/the) that summarize the work.

My year at @CASBSStanford was one of the most intellectually exhilarating years of my life. More communication, social computing, and computational social science folks should be applying.
