bwah-ha-ha just converted a hapless person to unpaywall and google scholar (she is not affiliated with a research institution). she is so exited and may not come out of reading scholarly articles for days :)
I would think it would be difficult to get up and go to work in the morning if you worked at "Centre for the Study of Existential Risk"... a recent paper was all on classifying the various things that could knock out the planet or at least all the humans.
the weather forecast for the next few nights is snow, ice, and freezing rain. So that should be fun
the work I was doing that inspired my latest blog post (https://christinaslisrant.scientopia.org/2019/02/06/using-computer-assisted-qualitative-data-analysis-software-for-literature-search-reports/) is pretty routine for me. Sometimes I do a lot less analysis and sometimes i do more. this was happening to go to some top leadership around the lab... it's so funny because they are tickled pink. They are like awestruck and apparently spend time at each meeting saying how awesome I am. When this gets passed back to me, I'm like thank you... but I don't know what they thought I did? or why they're surprised? or what they were asking for if not this? maybe they'll stop cutting our budget?

Just attended a colloquium by this guy> Likewar : the weaponization of social media (Book, 2018) [WorldCat.org] "Get this from a library! Likewar : the weaponization of social media. [P W Singer; Emerson T Brooking] -- "Social media has been weaponized, as state hackers and rogue terrorists have seized upon Twitter and Facebook to create chaos and destruction. This urgent report is required reading, from defense ..." http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/1021802806 < it was actually surprisingly good. So many people on this topic are not even wrong - I think he was very well reasoned and well informed.
So in #hotmessnexis , choosing to download rtf "full document" means a kwic snippet?
i need a new blog header image... but I don't want to do the standard books... or like 1 and 0 computer... or random scenery... or... network or... anyone have any ideas for me?
ENIAC/Univac-y, old-tyme-y computers or rooms or panels/wires? I have a bunch of pics from the Computer History Museum, if you want them. Like, the logic gate demo that's the header for my Twitter account.· Meg Vmeg 2
As I may have mentioned, my mother in law was a journalist for the Voice of America. She still keeps up and reads many different news feeds. Unfortunately, she doesn't have a very current view of cyber hygiene. She knows that hacking happens, but doesn't connect that to specific things she needs to do to protect herself. And she visits sites that are big targets. Anyhoo. Can anyone point to resources for journalists? Ones that talk about how if you have to go to sites that may have been hacked what you can do?

my children's school district is trying to raise the money to feed all the children of furloughed government and contractor workers who are not getting a paycheck today. they're not going to let any children go hungry, but with 40% of the county's children already getting free/reduced meals... well, they've got to find it somewhere.
