Just unintentionally declared partial inbox bankruptcy. If you sent me email between November 9 and today and I had not yet read/replied... I probably just deleted your message. Sorry!

Mail to my @UW address seems "fine." It's still in my inbox. Which is still a disaster. 🙄

This Friday I'll be making real cocktails at virtual @SeaGL (Seattle GNU/Linux conference). Source code for the menu is up if you want to buy ingredients and follow along. The non-drinky part of the program looks great too! Registration is free/optional. osem.seagl.org/conferences/sea

I often teach in the @CommLead master program at @UW. The program & students are fantastic and it's one of my favorite things about being @UWComm.

@CommLead is looking to hire a new associate director! Please spread the word/apply! uwhires.admin.washington.edu/e

Or maybe it's universal in the sense that charge everybody $39.95? 😉

Guess what the @SpringerNature journal "Universal Access in the Information Society" does *not* provide? springer.com/journal/10209/

Because my university does not subscribe, Springer wants $39.95 for the review article I need. 🤦

This acknowledgement from @opensym reminds me that I should do a better job of giving this kind of acknowledgement for folks who agree to do reviews for me.

Checking that little box in the PCS is for @ACM_CSCW, @sigchi is nice too (ACs should use it!) but doesn't really replace the whole acknowledgement from another human thing.

I've sent email followups to acknowledge/thank folks who wrote really high-effort reviews/quality reviews for me as an AE/AC in the past and I've always been surprised by how much reviewers seem to appreciate this. I need to remember to do this more often.

Yay! 😊Reviewing is typically one of the most thankless parts of an academic's job. Awards like this are nice but almost any recognition of reviewers' work can make those hours/day of invisible work feel worthwhile—even if it's just a thank you email from an editor/chair.

Nice writeup by the @torproject of some recent work I've been doing on Tor users contributing to @Wikipedia. The two papers described were led by @kaylea and Chau Tran!

Wikipedia has tried to block Tor users since 2007, alleging vandalism, spam, and abuse. New research tells a different story: people use Tor to make high-quality contributions to Wikipedia, often to topics like politics, technology, and religion. https…

My new @IEEESSP paper tries to map anonymity-seeking to types/quality of online participation by comparing @torproject users to other types of @Wikipedia contributors. The short version is that Tor users are pretty similar to other newbies and unregistered editors!

I'm quoted talking about knowledge equity in the @StanfordDaily@twitter.com for an article reflecting on @aaronsw@twitter.com's legacy and @JSTOR@twitter.com's decision to open things up—a little bit and temporarily—during the pandemic. stanforddaily.com/2020/03/27/r

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

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!
