Sigh, OK. I used VQGAN+CLIP in more of an auditing form this time, to see if the prompt "goyim" (the Hebrew and Yiddish word for non-Jews) generates a racist characature of a Jew. Unsurprisingly, it does Image
Why? Because the internet is full of nazis.

If there's any one thing I want folks to get out of the interview I recently did, it's the emotional impacts of ADHD, honestly, even if they weren't the main focus of the interview. I want you all to understand Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria

ND folks, so you have language for the intense bouts of despair you feel sometimes in response to personal criticism or rejection from people whose opinions you value, and know it's not weakness but a difference in how your brain works
NT folks, so you know that adapting communication norms for ND folks is a matter of diversity, not fragility or tone policing, even if they often look similar

Hi friends! What are your favorite openly neurodivergent computer science researcher accounts you like to follow?
I like @plaidfinch who gave a super good mental health talk over and over again at a bunch of PL conferences and is generally a great person
Also @hillelogram is obviously great

Can we set up a neurodivergent CS researchers slack channel or something?
Someone do this I can't get started 😅
Instance, not channel I guess. Just an ND in CS research Slack instance where we can all hang out and talk about all of the things

I very strongly wish the answer to high service loads for marginalized folks in CS were to adequately reward disproportionate service efforts, not to just tell us we shouldn't be doing it. service section of my CV, with a long list of things over thdiversity & outreach section of my CV
I've gotten a lot of emails telling me that SIGPLAN-M was the highlight of someone's year, helped someone get into grad school, made someone feel like they belong in programming languages research, and so on. Imagine the academic impact of all of those researchers in the future.
Good DEI efforts and mentorship efforts and safety efforts and so on are like that---massive, massive improvements for the community for the people we help. But somehow they're treated as less relevant than our individual academic contributions.

Things I care about: most things

Things I definitely don't care about: whether people in illegal settlements on Palestinian territories have to drive into Israel proper to buy a particular brand of ice cream
It's a Fun Opportunity for everyone to feel outraged about something though
