Hey! Super happy to be part of this community :)

Does this count as social media? If so, this is a first time for me.

Thought I'd start by sharing something - at least for me - inspirational. Looking forward to get to know y'all!

Going to 'murica for the first time today. Super excited! Folks, is there anything special I should know/mentally prepare for?

Leaving the beautiful city of Ljubljana after a week here with my students. It's heartwarming and a journey of discovery to see the human wealth and diversity these countries represent. Yet, I think too often we forget them in our political discourse, and their reaction is - understandably - to get annoyed and indifferent.

My dear Europe, we have _so much_ more work to do!

The glass cup we used for holding our toothbrushes was always wet and making things mouldy. Yesterday afternoon I made a 3D printed holder with holes in the bottom so that the water can drain out.

Back from a medieval fair. Maybe it was the surreal blend of modern and ancient clothes, or the awe-inspiring choirs played in loop, or the actual Gallo-Roman ruins where it took place, or a couple of familiar faces I hadn’t seen in years...

At some point, I experienced an overwhelming feeling. Past, present and future overlapped.

I can’t stop wondering if in two thousand years, people will party in the ruins of some fossil fuels era megalopolis, disguised as the ghosts of today.

There was a study circle about the politics of Big Tech in Pakistan's capital (which is a smallish city), and it drew a large crowd.

This makes me happy.

i hear sounds, i see what surrounds me — the universe is a magical place.

Brought a group of 30 of my computer science students today on this beauty. They're here for a summer school on urban resilience, and we talked about transportation too.

I wanted to show them a different side of my hometown: I dream of a resurgence of sailing, wisened by the new technologies that we created since motors took over.

Will this trigger thinking, or will it just be a fancy trip on an old boat? Good question to go to sleep with, I feel.
