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!

Cultuurstrijd, maar dan niet op gelijke grond. Een vermeende strijd vol met (veelal ontoereikende) (nep-)argumenten en mensen die het woord chronisch niet kunnen spellen maar wel 2e kamerleden de les menen te moeten lezen. Maar dat is slechts die ruis. Het venijn zit 'm in de staart...
Goede column van Sheila Sitalsing: "Rookgordijn" (titel in de krant). Allemaal lezen mensen!
(Wat een week - lijkt soms echt wel jaren dertig vorige eeuw, zorgelijk.)

Excellent new song by Geppetto & The Whales
CLARIN (the European Research Infrastructure for Language Resources and Technology) has a federated search engine for all its content. Nice!

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.
