(Credit/blame also goes with @amandalynneP who made the key pun first.)
Or because they cross? And to be clear, although they are pretty helpful, you don't *need* them.
More great research from my research collective! New paper by @aaronshaw and @eszter evaluates the representativeness of @amazonmturk samples for survey research.
Fool's gold? The perils of using online survey samples to study online behavior. (Why survey samples from AMT might not be a representative of broader populations). https://blog.communitydata.science/perils-of-online-survey-samples-studying-online-behavior/

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?
A bunch of folks from the collective had a wonderful time meeting with folks from @haystack_csail as part of the lab speed dating social event that was part of the so…
Our research group has published this thread with links to a blog post, thanks, and lots more good stuff. https://social.coop/@communitydata/107220393921892827
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!
If you missed the Community Data Science prospective PhD student Q&A, we've put a video and blog post of the event online. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHOl44j51p0 https://blog.communitydata.science/catching-up-on-the-collectives-2021-phd-qa/
@lonelymtn If only there were a local okonomiyaki place... The dish is mostly loco moco but w/ a bed of lightly dressed shredded cabbage, a more Japanese (read soy sauce-based) gravy, and traditional okonomiyaki toppings (i.e., okonomi sauce, kewpie, aonori, ginger).

If you want to follow along from home, pick a drink or two you want to make and gather ingredients. You should be able to make most things with tequila, lime, and Cynar. You should able to make just about everything if also have grapefruit, sherry, and basics like sugar and salt.
It'll be a mix of chatting and learning about cocktails while I mix too many drinks and try to get my housemates and friends to help drink them. (Thanks team!)
@lonelymtn Until the rest of the world catches up, I think you're responsible for conjuring into being yourself. I'm happy to provide guidance though!
