Mastodon works by aggregating people in distinct servers that are connected in a horizontal network, where people can interact freely.

In research, scientists usually work in research centers and collaborate worldwide in a distributed network.

The two things overlap nicely and could be potentially synergic. If we concentrated our efforts on building a Mastodon instance in every big research institution, we may grow a federated scientific network that is free from commercial apps.

A few days ago I realized that my dog is able to generalize the command "go around". I initially taught her to go from the front door of the house to another on the back. Then I realized that she was understanding what I meant with two other doors. But what stroke me was that she understood perfectly the command when I said "go around" in front of a closed gate and she had to circumvent a long fence to come to me.

Last year, we spent 51 days at sea during the passage from Japan to Canada, it was the hardest thing we had ever done. We kept a physical logbook of daily happenings onboard. This is that logbook, revised, and with a ton of extra notes.
