@sir The essay suggests that we should not make the freedom of the tools we build contingent on non-free tools. Perhaps it wasn't clear that I'm *not* asking you or anybody else to create a keybase.io account or to use it over GPG, web of trust, etc.

Like the FSF, I use republish my toots on birdsite too. I try to live in freedom but I also don't refuse to meet people where they are.

I'm finding @staeiou@twitter.com's "Rise and Fall of the Note" dataviz on previous CSCW paper word lengths to be SO USEFUL in the part of @ACM_CSCW@twitter.com reviewing where we are asked to decide if a paper's contribution is commensurate to its length. doi.org/10.1145/33593241

Only one more day to register to learn and in Seattle at @UW@twitter.com over three upcoming Saturdays and Sundays. Workshops are FREE, run by volunteers, and supported by @escience@twitter.com and @UWComm@twitter.com. Join us!

Communication scholar friends! Do your departments bring in prospective PhD students for campus visits before offers are extended or after (i.e., pure recruitment)? Or neither? If you could share your program and the answer, it would be helpful!

Reflections from me a bunch of others on talking to family/friends about this week. Thanks @conservancy for putting this together!

There are a *bunch* of other incredible computational communication scholars running as well! I hope you'll vote for me but I actually feel pretty conflicted myself! If one of the other candidates gets the plurality, I think that would pretty awesome too! (5/5)
