A friend of mine who works at the Wikimedia Foundation wants to spread the word that they are hiring for two research positions:
Research Engineer: https://boards.greenhouse.io/wikimedia/jobs/2267741
Research Scientist (Disinformation): https://boards.greenhouse.io/wikimedia/jobs/2267633
Application deadline is Aug 31. You'd be working remotely in either case. I can put you in touch with my friend, if you have questions.
I have been notified that my dad's dad will probably die very soon. But I'm not very sad because my family tree is very wide because of people splitting up again and again. So although he is my grandpa, he feels more like a distant relative to me.
Problem is, that I'll see my dad next week. I don't want to look like a psychopath because I don't care, but also don't want to fake sadness.
I am now on matrix.org as "@Johann150:matrix.org".

That was probably just me being a derp, it works nicely now 😅
Hello fellow Europeans in the #Fediverse:
Are you aware of any educational institutions already using FS?
Do you know about any other #education related activities in your country?
Today at work I experienced once more the unnecessary pain of using database fields for manner of address or (academic) titles. I think it would be much easier to have one text field for both things and then use gender neutral language. And then nobody could tell me that I forgot to add an option for them because they can just type it in.
- Naughts and crosses / tic tac toe
Do you know of any other examples or maybe someone already made a list or compilation of such games?
