churning lots of data isn't enough for good science

wow, a "roam" research like in vscode. zettelkasten like knowledge manager. pretty nifty stuff, used for my stream and learning notes from now on!

It is not only Covid-19 that reawakens the European #NightTrains.

Thanks to all organisations and people who have been campaigning for more #SleeperTrains for years. Things are moving forward! 🚞🌃

I search-engined "why is thermodynamics so hard" and got answers. this blog post made my life. undergraduate thermodynamics is 20% generic math, 80% storytelling, and its confusing because they don't tell you that.

there's goodtime in fdroid. new phone is fixing my life :) I didnt need those apps.

new /e/ phone doesn't even let me have with facebook and google trackers. what's not ok:
- strava
- habitica
- forest

need forest replacement - something that just times hours worked

looking for people to follow. you know, people. not *pile of incoherent political screaming*.
sadly I also just don't respond to memes, jokes, fandom, shitposting, and being silly, which is apparently what the cool kids are up to. so here we are.
also nope: taking your aesthetics straight from 4chan

I just learned about their.tube/ . It's a site that simulates the YouTube recommendations for people who live in different political bubbles.

It's useful if you want to show people how YouTube's recommendation algorithms drive people ever-deeper into their bubbles, resulting in more extreme world views.

And of course the software they use is open-source, you can find the code here: github.com/kihapper/TheirTube

basically need to shut up and integrate. bye for today.

Would you like a tree in this trying time? It has 539 nodes, descending 53 nodes down.

others? one of you boosted a toot about a new science instance recently, but I cant find it again

The main "types" of physics (maybe all natural science) are held to be theoretical, experimental, and computational, with some debate whether computational science is theory, experiment, or a 3rd category. I've recently seen data analysis added as a 4th.
My personal view is that computational physics is, if done "right", definitely a type of mathematical/theoretical research - but a lot of it is data churning; some sort of non-science. The same could be said of analysing big data and experimental science.
