Empowering people in communities can allow for real change.
The new Ty Segall album reminds me of the acoustic songs on the classic Big Star #1 album, a nice listen in the shade on a hot summer day.

A good friend of mine will move to #Nijmegen for studying and right now she's desperatly looking for a room, flat or maybe even a campsite. Her demands are "real low" because she knows about the housing crisis there (kind of capitalist shit, isn't it?).
Some facts about her: very smart and cool feminist rebelgrrrl*, makes art and sports and really good pizza. At the moment she works social in supporting refugees. She was very happy about the chance to make her M.A. at university in Nijmegen and is still excited. I gonna miss her so much 🥺💕
But back to topic. I told her, that there are some people from the netherlands in here and maybe somenone has an idea?
PS: Of course she allready searched at universitys residence halls and communal residences, but this isn't easy 600km+ away and with that housing crisis and not so much money..

New users on idf.social:
Welcome to the Fediverse!
Once you get the hang of it, please consider writing an #introductions toot and pin that to your profile.
I recommend @laura 's intro to Mastodon (link below), and tech savvy ppl may even like to glance over the ActivityPub W3C standard to grasp the full power. I like Pixelfed as another ActivityPub service, and there are more!
Two new projects just signed in the NGI portofolio addressing Search topic:
- NGI Search (8.5M€) will fund open source technologies for search @mirkopresser
- Openwebsearch (8.5M€) focuses on Search index infrastructure https://openwebsearch.eu/index.html
Both projects will resort to community contributions through open calls (so called cascading) that will open later this year. Stay tune.
Radboud news item about our OpenWebSearch.EU project (https://ows.opensearchfoundation.org/):
Proud to be a consortium member, with @djoerd
Proud to announce: tenacity pays off, I am moving up in the academic pyramid! Starting in September my next step will be as a #PhD candidate over at #Utrecht University. 🥳 I get the opportunity to work on human factors in organizational #cybersecurity, supervised by Kate Labunets and Slinger Jansen.

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.
