It's been a hectic few weeks and it's going to get more hectic. Lots of doctors appointments next week, need to take care of printing my thesis copies and other practical stuff too, write my opening lecture and have some research stuff that should be pushed out by the end of the month too, apartment lease is almost up so I'm moving to my parents for a bit over a week next weekend, then defense in early October, flying to Italy the next day and hopefully getting my keys and getting introduced into work things there the day after that.

("until I leave Finland", I say this assuming I'll be able to 😂💀)
So, wfh officially continues until I leave Finland. Looks like I'll have a remote PhD defense which is kinda weird (they're usually public events w/ lots of people from the department and relatives etc), much less stressful for the actual event, and also less money-intensive, but I'm kinda sad I won't be able to do the big celebratory dinner w/ uni people afterwards. At least I'll have a very unique defense 😁

Google didn't kill RSS.
They killed a popular *web client* for RSS.
The protocol is very much alive and quietly supported by many sources.
If anything the one action that really did bring harm to #RSS is Google's refusal to add RSS button support to Chrome by default and Mozilla removing it from Firefox.
@LilyVers i can't work out what ISO is outside of the international standards meaning
Years ago I asked about the possibility to video lectures to save records of them online for students to use for studying and was told I couldn't because it would probably violate FERPA.
This year because of covid I have to videotape all lectures in case students don't feel like coming to campus or fall ill.
Basically all the things we were told you can't do that would make academia more accessible are suddenly being done. It's almost like they could have been done all the time.

While reading about this I found out that someone working on a research grant is a farmer from an insurance legal point of view.
Something something peasants.
