Job hunting in Boston, boosts appreciated Show more
Hi there! I'm job searching in the Boston metro area and would appreciate any leads this little community might offer.
My background is in grant financial administration & regulatory compliance. Currently employed in higher ed, but looking to jump to a different sector. Preferably nonprofit, but for-profit is not a dealbreaker.
I've got a M.S. in math & would love to put those numerical/analytical skills to use.
If you run an instance that has closed invitations (by policy, not temporarily due to load or spam), I'd be interested in chatting with you about why your instance is closed, and how/if you allow new members, and what you do for people who you can't/won't let in. (I run a closed instance myself and LOVE it, so I'm just looking to get a sense of current practice, not for debate.) #mastodamins
Polygon and the Verge are both Vox Media outlets. Vox workers are currently attempting to unionize and they've just announced a work stoppage. Don't support Vox until the union gets their contract and their demands or met. That means if you support BDG and Pat and all yr other polygon crushes then you won't go watching their polygon vids until Vox Union announces their victory

Stonewall mural, trans, + Show more
"The 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots has been marked by activists in Texas with a new mural, painted to honour the transgender women who were key figures in the protests.
The new mural, which is the largest mural in the US, is on the side of a building in Cedar Springs, Dallas."
Fun thing to do at the library: walk through the aisles until a book's spine catches your eye. Ideally it's a pretty well-worn book; for this technique to work it needs to have had a fair number of readers over the years.
Grasp the book's spine and hold it so the pages hang down. Find a an air gap where the pages naturally hang open, and read those pages.
Today I found this lovely passage on randomness/entropy in a book called "Paradox" by Jim Al-Khalili.
And now there's more! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcGamPqUIxI
I wish I had the spoons to start one and/or the cash to host it; in a few months after some personal stuff clears I'd be kinda interested in helping mod/admin one that exists, if the other mods align with me on ethical principles.
Feel free to boost!
