Together with Frank Sonntag I have created a new Mastodon instance: FediScience, a friendly place where scientists can let their hair down.

There I will write about my work about the quality of climate data at a scientific level in English.

This will be/stay my private, sometimes German and local (#Bonn) account.

There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.

Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.

There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science

Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.


Nice! Any plans to collab with

They are running a summer school with online talks by researchers in a little while for example.

@pettter @VictorVenema I was just about to request: Please be well moderated.

And I feel like @socrates take on how to run a scholarly server is a very good one.

@maloki Agree, that strong moderation is important to make the most people feel welcome. As we are still small and scientists are reasonably well-behaved, we did not have to do any moderation on our own instance yet. So the future will show how well we do.
@pettter @socrates

@VictorVenema I did not notice this was 1 year old when I messaged earlier. 😅

@maloki It is a strange post. Sometimes someone boosts it and it explodes again.
