Check out my new paper documents how online collaboration platforms imagine anonymous users in ways that are strikingly differently than anonymous users see themselves. Paper was led by Nora McDonald w/ Rachel Greenstadt and Andrea Forte. #CHI2019 https://blog.communitydata.science/new-research-on-how-anonymity-is-perceived-in-open-collaboration/
To help you make your scientific study #exceedinglyreproducible, my student Jeremy Foote has published software to make PDF flipbooks of your lab meetings for deposition into your university's institutional archives. https://blog.communitydata.cc/exceedingly-reproducible-research/
My physical Research Symbiont award arrived! 🏆🐟https://mako.cc/copyrighteous/a-research-symbiont I knew it was a plush fish w/ an attached parasitic lamprey but didn't appreciate the detail that went into the magnetic "interface." [Current Mood: Weird mix of deeply honored and grossed out. 😊🤢]
My student Charlie Kiene spent 6mo with 2 groups of World of Warcraft raid guilds undergoing mergers. One merger led to a thriving community while the other led to complete collapse. Our new #CSCW2018 paper (with Aaron Shaw) tries to explain why. https://mako.cc/copyrighteous/why-organizational-culture-matters-for-online-groups
Claude Shannon created the "ultimate machine" and kept one on his desk. While I'm in his old office at CASBS, I'm doing the same! It can prompt useful thinking/conversation about AI, agency, cybernetics, homeostatis, etc. And it's super fun! https://mako.cc/copyrighteous/shannons-ghost

I lived on the east coast for ~5 years before somebody explained that the term "honey bucket" is not the generic way to refer to portable toilets. They thought it was a idiosyncratic euphemism. In fact, Honey Bucket is a brand. https://social.coop/media/l9ZqKRImY7ccWgIjpZA https://mako.cc/copyrighteous/honey-buckets
I posted some pictures and context for my climb of Mt. Rainier w/ @mika this week: https://mako.cc/copyrighteous/climbing-mount-rainier
