@aral a lot of my concerns are taken care of with this page I didn't see yesterday:

The code is published here and from what I can see, there is a lot of documentation about the functions and databases.

Hi @aral I was wondering if you've had time to look into the Irish app that was released today ?

I had been reading up on the work of the DP-3T about two months ago, but didn't expect Ireland to implement this method.

Just asking in case you have any thought about this yet, on first glance it seems like the HSE has done this properly?

And in giving the benefit of the doubt, it would be nice if the sources for the smartphone apps were published for us to be able to have a look.

Research organisation method

Seems like an interesting agglom of tools

There was a Too Little Not Enough podcast about research aggregation a while back, on the very subject of the lack of a suitable extendable tool.

Would be curious to survey the methods people on Mastodon use use to sort/organise/categorise/ writing and research.

First guided tour of the *just opened* online exhibition is happening ... Now !

So suddenly there’s a lot of attention around email and it’s exposing how many people in the web community still use Gmail. Like actually trust all your personal information and communication (and that of your potentially marginalised or vulnerable contacts) with Google. 🤮

There are a lot of hard problems and lack of alternatives when it comes to rights-respecting technology. But email (as imperfect as it is) has a fair few affordable alternative providers. Small change, big difference.

Old news but totally missed it: Mike Skinner to be releasing a full-of-features mixtape in July. Release early July :)

There will be Protests on 6th June around Ireland organised by @masi_movement_askylum_seekers and @blackprideire
