Decided to be more active here, so let me reintroduce myself! I'm a zooarchaeologist researching #Farming and #Food of the past. I study animal and plant remains 🐐🌾, apply biochemical analyses 🧪, and want to use this knowledge of the past to contribute to #Sustainability today 🚜

Read the latest ReSA blog post by Eric Allen Jensen and @danielskatz about the challenges to recognising software contributions in Elevating Research Software: Developing a Roadmap https://www.researchsoft.org/blog/2023-09/

Building on discussions in the US Research Software #Sustainability Institute (URSSI), this blog post shares a set of possible activities aimed at elevating the role of #researchsoftware in #academic #careerpaths, #recognition, and beyond.


I am a late 30s #gay man living in lutruwita/Tasmania, Australia. Happily married and with two pugs, Oscar and Stanley.

I am anxious and often depressed but try to cover it with good vibes, thot pics and bad dancing.

I consume waaay too much #PopCulture particularly #ScienceFiction #fantasy #books, #movies and #tv. Also do a fair bit of #gaming on #PS5 #Xbox and #Switch.

Other interests include #lgbtqia issues, #sustainability, #vegan, #MentalHealth, #weightlifting, #running, #yoga and #Lego

The one #sustainability slide you need, from @adrianco

things dev can do now
- optimise code
- choose faster languages and runtimes, like rust [or quarkus! 😁 ]
- efficient algorithms
- faster implementations
- reduce retries and work amplification
- reduce logging

things ops can do now
- higher utilisation
- automation
- relax over-specified requirements
- archive data
- deduplicate data
- choose time and location for workloads carefully

Meanwhile, in battery news...

Researchers at Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) have developed an oxygen-ion battery with a storage capacity that doesn't decrease over time, leading to an extremely long lifespan compared to other batteries.

This battery can be produced without rare metals and could be used for in large energy storage systems, e.g., to store electrical energy from renewable sources.

Having a sustainable website is crucial to me: mine scores 100 on Ecograder.

I do care for the environment. Pointless data information that travels through the internet is not free, it has a carbon weight.

Every kilobyte saved correspond to an amount of CO2.

What do people achieve with that compulsion to add featured images that aren't theirs?
