Anarchist, trans, and queer biohackers are making DIY estrogen, DIY insulin, and are otherwise circumventing our terrible, expensive, and biased healthcare system

A few thoughts on the leaked EU Commission's White Paper on a European Approach towards #AI
(thanks to @F_Kaltheuner@twitter.com for pointing it my way)
@email@example.com A whole chapter on this and lots more besides available in my book - open access options available too: https://www.uwestminsterpress.co.uk/site/books/10.16997/book42/
@firstname.lastname@example.org I wrote this over a decade ago for the "intro to grad studies" lecture class I used to teach. It's pretty rambly and prolix (and doesn't mention newer resources, like the Open Syllabus Project), but maybe some of it is still useful / adaptable? http://wordsinspace.net/shannon/2010/04/20/identifying-your-interests-and-establishing-a-research-plan/

wow new report claims 42% of Opera’s revenue is now coming from predatory loan apps that they run in India, Nigeria and Kenya https://hindenburgresearch.com/opera-phantom-of-the-turnaround/

Hot on the heels of what @TweetinChar@twitter.com has called "Robot Rights-gate"...a new review of #robotrights @email@example.com from @firstname.lastname@example.org in Italian and published in the journal "In Circolo: Revista di Filosofia e Culture."
So I see a "robot rights" or "robot advocacy" movement that is expansive re: justice and traces ideological roots to other activist movements with which it shares common cause.
Not because robots=human or demarcation nihilism, or any metaphysics, but because justice is justice.

@firstname.lastname@example.org + now visa costs close to £3000 for international PhD students due to the extortionate NHS surcharge.
*waves hand* Paying 7k more than UK students + London living for 3 years :)
As a fresh academic staff, I can't compare it to the past but I can't believe how lack of diversity is a recurring concern in the UK academia albeit without any single connection to the #HostileEnvironment and the price international academics have to pay to stay in the UK. https://twitter.com/intnlandbroke/status/1219198344305827840
