For those in CS academia... Is there any reason to be an ACM member...? I assume your host institution provides access to papers, so you wouldn't need your own membership for that at least.

@jryans You get a discount when attending ACM-sponsored conferences

@kbusse Ah yeah, thanks, seems like a good reason to at least be an occasional SIG member.

@jryans comes with an O'Reilly subscription, that's why I joined, but don't use it as much as I thought, so will probably cancel.

@consumtariat Ah thanks, though that benefit is apparently going away… 😢
