For now, I will keep the site closed for registrations; but everyone can independently invite people to join using the following link to generate an invite:
If you know someone who wants to join this instance, then please do give them an invite!
Consider the instance open for those who know anyone on IDF.social.
"Sense of community" and an initial seed of some 40 IR researchers should be enough to keep those spammers out of here and still grow the club!

Finally this happened!
From their #changelong:
Thank you guys,
Now I hoped that pixelfed federation to myself on idf.social would have been resolved with the upgrade to v2.7.0, but it did not.
You have my permission to look at my records in the database!
Hi everyone, after over 12h downtime...
We are back, better than ever: running the v2.7.0 of Mastodon that was released Saturday night.
My apologies for the downtime - running out of diskspace collided with updating kernel modules, which required larger sysadmin rights than I currently have on the server where this instance runs.
I learned to either get those sysadmin rights myself, or not do upgrades from home on a Sunday afternoon, when *real* sysadmins have their weekend.
#Mastodon 2.7 is released 🎉

Probably you already watched Silicon Valley's Not Hotdog episode. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqTntG1RXSY
Let's try to make the same thing with #TensorFlow mobile, #Keras & #ReactNative. https://medium.com/@timanglade/how-hbos-silicon-valley-built-not-hotdog-with-mobile-tensorflow-keras-react-native-ef03260747f3
Thanks to Tim Anglade for this beautiful article.
An example for IP&M to follow?!
Although Elsevier hasn't come around yet, Wiley made an #OpenAccess publishing deal with Germany. Sounds interesting, the universities essentially pay for publishing services but all their authors' works will be available. It includes launching a new journal too. I haven't read through the details but this sounds really positive at first glance. https://www.hrk.de/press/press-releases/press-release/meldung/wiley-and-projekt-deal-partner-to-enhance-the-future-of-scholarly-research-and-publishing-in-germany/

The "unofficial" Information Retrieval Mastodon Instance.
Goal: Make idf.social a viable and valuable social space for anyone working in Information Retrieval and related scientific research.
Everyone welcome but expect some level of geekiness on the instance and federated timelines.
