turns out i never did an post: hi, i'm mols. i'm an academic working in the science and technology studies/comm studies/info studies space. i do work on the philosophy, theory, and history of digital technologies and "innovation economies." i used to write a lot about digital activism. i'm currently on book leave writing about the role of east coast financiers in the development of venture capital policy in the 1970s. you can find most of my work at oddletters.com

i not saying this would impact your decision to submit to this workshop but i _will_ be making a secret special sticker for it

sometimes i think i want to watch serious films about ART and LIFE and PAIN and LOVE amd STUFF and then it turns out what i want to watch is an anime about a polar bear who runs a cafe

well well well, if it isnt the consequences of my own actions (being sore and starving)

i've been out of the gym since november due to conference + holiday travel and then covid, but last week i hit a new squat pr (150lbs!) and today i deadlifted 175lbs, which is 5 off my last pr!

my new favorite thing to do at dinner parties is when someone turns to me and asks "so what are you a professor of," i smile real wide and say GUESS because 1) i'm an asshole and 2) they know that i know that they were going to say "gender studies" but now they're definitely not going to say that at all

mothers dont let your babies grow up to write finance history books

drink some more coffee about your anxiety, mols, that'll fix it

: opens can of fediverse worms, shouts into it : can someone explain the difference between mentions and DMs to me bc i have things in my DMs tab on tusky that look like mentions to me

ok, im on a new app now that lets me mute conversations but damn having a post go big here is unpleasant in a way that having a post go big in the other place never really was for me.
