I want to be able to tell my friends why #mastodon is better than the birdsite, so I wrote a thing: "Mastodon Is Better than Twitter: Elevator Pitch"

I want this to be as persuasive as possible to outsiders, so I'd appreciate as much feedback as possible from Mastodon users

I am still completely gobsmacked each time I think about Ayn Rand and realise, again, that there was a dedicated, organised movement in American culture since the 1950s to literally *call empathy and altruism evil*. To make people less loving. And that very high ranking politicians, businesspeople.... and religious leaders, who know and teach better... bought into it.

That stuns me. Still does. Every time.

How. How did that happen? How did we let these people, this ideology, run our society?

I remember reading that in the first days of email, instead of the now-ubiquitous "@" symbol, it was the "!" instead. Wished Mastodon could've paid homage to that by formatting IDs as @user!instance :P

notes on lady gaga / baba yaga connection:
- same amount of letters
- same last syllable
- lady gaga calls fans little monsters; baba yaga is a monster
- baba yaga sits in a mortar, pushes herself with a pestle; lady gaga probably owns a mortar and pestle
- baba yaga has a collection of magical and esoteric items; lady gaga is known for wearing esoteric (magical?) clothing
- lady gaga probably owns a brush and comb; baba yaga had a brush and comb which were stolen from her by awful children

im gay and even i dont know some of the gay symbols in bofas custom emoji set. like what group does this asshole represent :waluigi:

So far in my uni courses I've been exposed to , , and a bit of C; currently going through the fires of SASS and R.

Any other languages you think would be useful for me to pick up on the side as an applied maths major? Or maybe some specific packages worth exploring? (I've dabbled with some scikit at least)

In my CS math class I teach the Tower of Hanoi, or the Tower of Brahma, or Lucas' Tower. The first two names are fetishizations of Eastern cultures to generate flavor in a math problem; Edouard Lucas was French.

So, do I call it Lucas' Tower and ignore the poor choice of naming the problem, or call it its common name and address the problem? (We'll encounter bad European naming at the end of the semester when we hit Pascal's triangle---again, Asian mathematicians discovered the pattern first.)

Update/expansion of my intro last year. I'm now going into fourth year maths rather than theoretical physics, having switched degrees. (That's assuming I pass some exams this week that I deferred due to illness).

I brew beer as a hobby, and code when I have spare time. I enjoy writing science fiction, but I'm a long way away from publishing anything.

I have 111 characters spare so: My favourite equation is \(\int_M \mathrm{d}\omega = \int_{\partial M}\omega\)

Hi, mathstodon! I got a BS a decade and change ago and didn't do much with it for a while but still enjoy math. My social media habits are mostly sh*tposty and I don't want to clog the main feed, so I plan to post unlisted by default, but follow if you also like that sort of thing, I guess.

Hi guys, I'm an engineer who lives in Paris and I'm very interested in mathematics. I would like to revisit all the math basics starting from university (classes prepas for the frenchies out there :descartes: ).
Thank you all for your warm welcome.

I'm a Nigerian, a Mechanical Engineer with Post Graduate certificate in Public Administration, a passionate young man with a flair for travelling to new places. I like to interact with different cultures and ideologies. I hope we get along fast enough #INRODUCTIONS

One of my best pieces of advice for people new to Mastodon is this:
Follow lots of people, but don't hesitate to unfollow them if it turns out they're not tooting about things you want to see. And remember you can mute accounts that keep showing up with stuff you're not into.

Bonsoir. 👋🏿

I'm Joseph. You may remember me from such non-existent programming like:

📺 This Queer Black Guy Won't Shut Up About Things
📺 OMG You're Such A Dork

I'm once again expatriate (originally from the UK) having moved to the States for another long-term stint. Husband to an equally queer af and infinitely more awesome wife. Father to the most phenomenal girl in the world.

I'm very much a jack-of-all-trades/human Swiss Army knife so feel free to inquire.
