I need a job. While I'm applying to PhD positions, I can't wait around for that.

Nothing makes the reality that I have to do this hit hard quite like paying out 10k of bills...

Recent M.Sc. in Mathematics (Number Theory). I can do mathematics, software engineering, etc. I write English passably, and can limp by in German.

Goettingen or remote... I'll move if I must but it'd be a heavy burden at this point. USA citizen in Germany, Czech citizenship in the works but not yet in the bag. This is 2021, surely remote is possible.

Temporary or freelance work also a possibility. :boost_ok:

@feonixrift research institutes often have positions for recent graduates, if you're in Göttingen looking into Max Planck Institute, Helmholtz Institute or maybe the DLR (not sure if they have an institute nearby though) might be interesting? Hope you find something :)

Die erste Regel im Autoclub:
Stell dich nie in den Weg von Artgenoss:innen, sondern immer und nur in den von Fußgänger:innen - und meckere laut ablenkend über Escooter, die im Weg stehen.

@talessio Trying to rebuild the example used in the book (if there's one) without looking at it also serves for remembering the concept without needing much creativity :)

@talessio I struggle with this too, I hope it's okay to answer, your post popped up on my feed :) I think for me one problem is looking for something "perfect" that's actually useful, when a small but in itself not useful example would be much easier and quicker, so a trick for me is to try more to think about an example that's funny but doesn't need to make much sense.

A question: an application I want to use says in its privacy notice that it sends data to the US according to the reglementations of privacy shield, but as this has been ruled as not GDPR conform I'm pretty sure it's possible to tell them to stop. How do I do that? Is there some form I can use, or is it sufficient to write them an email?

@zpojqwfejwfhiunz agree. Or: make it illegal to use non-renewables at all :flan_cool:

Wichtige Ergänzung, ich habe heute gelernt dass inklusiver ist!

Book Club Request 

@Lindsaythelibrarian I'm more into fiction lately than non-fiction, I also try to read from diverse authors :) I also enjoy biographies a lot, and I've been wanting to read more classics and books about philosophy and feminism. I'd be happy to try graphic novels and pictures books if you have some recommendations! Is it okay if I boost your book club request?

@Lindsaythelibrarian I'd be interested as well, what kinds of books were you thinking about?

Nicht einen ruhigen Tag hat man mit #seehofer & dem Jetzt versuchen sie ernsthaft noch auf den letzten Drücker Überwachungsbefugnisse in das Telekommunikationsgesetz hinein zu verhandeln, die man so nur von Diktaturen kennt:

@Lindsaythelibrarian you're welcome, I'm happy to spread the word about them 😁 what are your favourites? 😊

@Lindsaythelibrarian I agree with the storygraph, it's probably my favourite website right now. Also standardnotes for note taking, Bearable for health tracking and qobuz for streaming music.

@donmaster Hello, I just joined as well :) thanks for sharing the Fairphone site, I didn't know they have one on here!

@JohanEmpa are there any informal rules on this server? Should I introduce myself?

Hello, I'm new to mastodon. I'm not really sure yet how this works, could you recommend people to follow? At the moment I'm interested in discussions about books, book recommendations, politics and science. I'd be happy about some mastodon tips for beginners as well!
