Introduction (some French) Show more
Salut! Je m'appelle Haché. I am a French Canadian living in English Canadian who has lost most of his French, but not the body shape that comes with regularly enjoying poutine.
I'm ostensibly a "game maker" but I'm rather terrible at it and haven't made much. Trying to distance myself from games culture, hence the move to a new instance.
I'm a white cis pan man who often gets loud about social justice issues because privilege.
Hi, I'm a professor in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech. My research is in AR/VR (XR), and mostly focuses on experiences, social, HCI and tools. I have work on web-based AR for years, which is how I find myself on an extended leave at Mozilla, working as a Principal Research Scientist on WebXR, all-things-AR and projects like hubs and Firefox Reality.
I mostly use @blair (because, why be in the fediverse if you don't have your own node?)

(Re- #introduction following a migration to this instance)
Hello! I am working towards a physics PhD and trying to get into better writing habits, and I hope blogging about my work and interests here will help with that.
I'm investigating the resuspension rates of toxic contaminants to help make predictions of inhalation exposure doses. My current method uses neutron activation analysis on air sampler filters to quantify air content.
I am happy to chat about this or other things!
Hello all. I teach 6-16 year olds in the subjects math, science, music, choir, movie making and outdoor activities. Every morning the 200 pupils and the adults meet and sing three songs from our school song book. I often accompany the lovely singing by playing piano.
Greetings from Denmark.
Hello! I'm an undergrad senior studying secondary education and biology in the US. Interested in FOSS, gaming, the outdoors, talking to people and paying bills. Hoping to be a bit of a better student/educator myself by joining here, while giving traditional social media platforms the finger.
Ok so I'm not fully clear but here's an #introduction:
I'm a desert-dwelling grad student currently finishing up a dissertation on the history of anarchism and free love in the US c. 1880-1920.
My interests include feminism, hiking, weird antiques, making things, cooking things, and telling you how adorable my dog is.
Let's be friends! #introduction
Bonjour ! Moi c'est Hugo, enchanté :3
Je suis fort motivé par la liberteyyy qu'offre cet espace ! Étant un homme trans, et sous T depuis à peine 2 semaines, je vais pouvoir poster beaucoup de selfies prétentieux pour combattre la dysphorie et montrer mon évolution, et puis, surtout... je vais shitposter.
À part ça dans la vie je fais un doctorat en informatique, je galère à cause de troubles bipolaires et anxieux, et je suis Poufsouffle dans mon coeur.
Hâte de vous rencontrer !

Hi All! Here is my #introduction:
I am Wolfgang Viechtbauer, a statistician and assoc prof at Maastricht University in the Netherlands. My research is focused on the statistical methods for meta-analysis and more generally mixed-effects models and computational statistics. I am into #rstats, #linux, #foss in general, and lolcats.
Hallo, there! This is my #introduction:
Other historical interests include #vastearlyamerica; antebellum and Civil War America; and all aspects of World War II.
I'm also the creator and curator of the Jacobite Database of 1745 and am an avid proponent of #digitalhumanities.
Politically I tend to be libertarian/voluntaryist, but I’m strongly influenced by the work of Alfred Korzybski, who popularized the phrase “The map is not the territory”. I see my beliefs as maps, which are inaccurate and incomplete. Therefore I try to be open and listen to and learn from people with different ideas. My beliefs have certainly changed over the years and I expect will continue to do so.
I have a political view that some describe as radical left, or left extremist even.
I don't. I opose authoritarian centralized forms of organisation and see myself in tryn to be some sort of anarchist.
What ever your political positions are, even if you're not aware of them, I'm open to engage with you as long you'll listen to me as I try to listen to you.
You don't want a polarized society acting towards civil war?
Try to act towards mutual understanding.
I will, will you?
