oatly Hey, ihr etwas späten aber potentiellen Mitzeichner. Ihr habt noch 7 Tage, um uns zu helfen, die benötigten 50.000 Unterschriften zu sammeln - damit sich der Bundestag damit befasst, die CO2e Kennzeichnung von Lebensmitteln zum Gesetz zu machen. Also keinen Stress.

emilymbender Yo @SemanticScholar --- do you have any mechanism for submitting corrections? This paper has 15 spurious authors, including me, and I'd rather not have it showing up on my page:

emilymbender @SemanticScholar To the authors of that paper: Maybe it woulda been nice to have asked?

To @SemanticScholar : this suggests that your methods are picking up names from the middle of a text and calling them authors.

To everyone in : LOOK AT YOUR DATA

emilymbender @SemanticScholar But none of those things. It turns out that my name was among the 10 "randomly extracted from the list of Programme Committee members" for ACL 2008 for dataset construction in a "web people search" task. I'd had no idea.

emilymbender @SemanticScholar And in slightly creepy news, I looked at this paper to see why it would be associated with my profile at all, guessing that maybe it was in some volume that I was also published in, or maybe edited, or...

mmbollmann I wonder why Semantic Scholar is being used as the primary source for paper assignment — I thought ORCID was already supposed to be the canonical way to identify a researcher. Now there's YET another page I have to maintain. 🙄 twitter.com/aclmeeting/sta…

emilymbender @SemanticScholar While I'm there -- this is a paper of mine, but you've got the title and date wrong. It's from 2004, not 2019. And somehow you've pulled a section heading as a title? Do better, or give me a way to clean this up.

SeeTedTalk Oh! our program co-chairs take on the significant problems of conflict of interest (COI) and better matching between reviewers and papers.

random_walker As a reminder, we've built a global infrastructure of tech addiction, surveillance, and manipulation that undermines our democratic values because companies want to make a few cents more on the ads they show us. So much has been sacrificed in pursuit of so little actual value.

fem_poet auf dating apps sehe ich das so: der match ist sowohl das "finde dich attraktiv" als auch das "hi" daher schaue ich mir profile genau an & versuche an irgendwas anzudocken, was da steht, um ins gespräch zu kommen. kommunikation ist arbeit, immer, es gibt kein easy way

fem_poet gespräche mit m vater laufen immer gleich ab: er schreibt "hallo" & das wars, den rest muss ich erledigen obgleich er doch offensichtlich sprechen will; genau wie auf dating apps; ständig diese "hi" "hello" "whatsapp" die das gegenüber (MICH) in die kommunikative carework drängen

saschalobo Die Union habe ich oft publizistisch attackiert und werde es weiterhin mit Freude tun.

Aber dass die CDU-Spitze AfD-Höcke ausdrücklich als „Nazi“ bezeichnet - gehört zu den wichtigsten und besten politischen Momenten der Dekade. Danke @PaulZiemiak

hsivonen What’s the deal with Arabic Wikipedia meta pages whose mnemonic title (one letter, colon, other letter) is prefixed with zero-width joiner followed by zero-width non-joiner? Is this some MediaWiki-specific oddity or a more commonly applicable pattern?

zeitweise In dieser Phase lösen Trump, Johnson und die die demokratischen Regeln nicht generell auf, sondern wenden sie nur noch einseitig an.

Freiheit, Unschuldsvermutung, Fairness, Respekt reklamieren sie nur noch für sich selbst, gewähren sie aber niemandem sonst.
