Hello Mastodon. I want to read more interesting books in 2018 and I want to share the experience with as many people as possible. I want to start a book club where we read one 200-300 page book each month. If you're interested please post book suggestions and we'll set up a poll to pick books. I want to make this as inclusive as possible so we'll be trying to select books that are coming available in libraries and on the Overdrive app.

Pssst, #sffbookclub, please consider the book "Welcome to Night Vale: A Novel", by J. Fink for your vote in November's poll, will ya? :blobheart:

It's based on my fav podcast which is kind of what would happen if Twilight Zone met the Lovecraft lore & friends on radio!

This was my suggestion and the "pressure" of a book club would help me a LOT to finally read it (also, it's my B-day on the 20th)! :blobaww:

The poll is at: doodle.com/poll/2333vyh6ei2e24

here is the #sffbookclub poll for November. apologies for the delay on it this month: doodle.com/poll/2333vyh6ei2e24

I’m an applied mathematician. I used to
do research in computational biophysics but now i’m just trying to pay Sallie Mae.

Happy to be here, but still figuring out mastodon (it’s reminding of my ICQ days).

I recently moved to London, which has been interesting. I like traveling, exercising, not putting up with bullshit and minding my business.

hey everyone writing code: you can't get around this. code does not exist in a noble mathematical void which absolves you of accountability. any system which people touch is tied into the fabric of society, and should be scrutinized for potential to do harm.

The Barclay protocols were introduced by Starfleet once they learned the hard way you should probably ring someone up on comms first before just like, walking in on someone in the holodeck, and also they should lock when in use
