"Call and Response" by Gothataone Moeng.

Bought on a whim in Daunt Books Marylebone - and the first book by an author from Botswana I read. Stories that are both familiar (in their feelings) and very foreign (in their cultural context). A recommendation.

This is why I love good book stores & why I pass by Daunt Books when in London. I don't know any other book shop of that size that would be that international. So this is also a bookstore recommendation.

So isses. Und wie bei allen "-ismen", ist es harte, unangenehme Arbeit - dazu noch oft undankbar im eigenen Kreis:

Ik werd gister op de fiets naar huis lastiggevallen door een groep pubers. Normaal zou ik gewoon wegfietsen, maar ik ben momenteel mega langzaam dus dat werkte niet. Gelukkig vonden ze het zelf te saai om heel ver te gaan.

Ik ben even gaan chillen op een bankje in het park en een lieve vriendin heeft me daar opgepikt en is mee naar huis gefietst.

Weer een leerzaam moment over hoe het leven eruit ziet voor de kwetsbare mensen in de samenleving! Je zal maar oud zijn bv! #postCovidHetBordspel

Tomorrow I'll set off on my first conference travel since 2019 to Switzerland.
In the 2010s I went to 3-4 conferences a year (and greatly enjoyed it) then the pandemic and put things to a grinding halt.
Hoping my energy management and pacing regime will work but also excited to see old conference buddies again and learn about new research.
Also excited about the train journey (including the scenic Gotthard route)

@kerstinsailer Same problem here - and I am too much of a worrier when the connections are too tight.

Good luck with your trip!

Ah, der heilige Dreiklang! Erst Mansplaing, dann Paternalismus und dann zwingend das letzte Wort mit dem Zwinki-Zwonki-Smiley haben müssen.

Ich atme, ich atme, ich ATME GANZ TIEF UND RUHIG.

Now that's a new one... And a level that I never managed to reach on "good old Twitter": Weird emails as replies to a post of mine. And a totally innocent post asking folks for recommendations for reviews for a series 🤷‍♀️

If you stopped buying books today,
how many years would your unread books last?

#booklover

vicgrinberg,
@vicgrinberg@mastodon.social avatar

@dugartogo longer than I would like to - not just because I have to many but because I will not feel like reading some by the time I get to them so the reading itself will take long...

@dugartogo so so much this!

@BerLinguistin the one next to Hortus? I always wondered what it looks inside ;)

Good luck for the talk!

I find the film very cliche in their depiction. People working all the time and having time on their hands.

For me the whole staircase project is weird, because the acceleration probably would turn the frozen brain into garbage at each acceleration. A physicist would know this.

The cutting nanofibers... one would have to calc what this really means in terms of surface and stability. If that could be a reality, it would be there :-D.

@muellerwhh Thanks, that's the kind of remark I'm here for!

@vicgrinberg@mastodon.social avatar

What's your favorite reviews of "Three body problem"? Especially ones that focus on discussing the physics - both in terms of depiction of physics and physicists and in terms of how correct the books are?

Preferably of the Netflix series, but I'll also accept those for the books if especially good on discussing the physics.

Please link to them! Boosts welcome :)

@michael_w_busch cool thanks - that's the kind of comments I was looking for! Thanks! As an X-ray astronomer who very mich not working on radars, would love to know more of your perspective 😊 I haven't read the later books but don't mind spoilers!
