Huge congrats, Mark!

Who knew the key leadership qualities for academia was based in mergers & acquisitions?*

Not just stupid — shouting from the rooftops that the cruelty is, in fact, the point. https://twitter.com/soledadobrien/status/1543296753427939329

Y'all had the right idea. Once the sobbing stopped I figured out how to find and reinstall Word 16.61 and get the endnotes and bibliography built. Now to figure out how to prevent Word from auto-updating. https://twitter.com/kfitz/status/1542592672430448640

The team and I would love your input. What constitutes “prior publication”? How should we respond to publisher requests that we remove author-deposited early versions of submitted work? https://twitter.com/humcommons/status/1544354935478910976

Congratulations, Thomas! I’ll look forward to hearing what you get up to there.

BOY do I have an alternative I’d suggest if suggesting were a thing to do.

I hate it when that happens.

I talked to someone today who told me that they kept a standing meeting with a defunct entity on their calendar for TWO YEARS. Magic free hour, in perpetuity.

Every single one. And then the hold message I hear 43 times while waiting for scheduling to pick up says “did you know you can make an appointment using our convenient portal?” 🤬

🤔 Checks out!

One hopes, when one is not being facetious.

Argh, I am so sorry. Sending all best wishes for an easy and complete recovery!

I could not be more thrilled for Emma Glass!!! Tell her that we shall some day before long celebrate in the cheese room. 🧀🧡

Noooooo! I’m so sorry to hear. Take care of yourself!

I hope it stays mild and that the ice cream does the trick!

Welcome!!!

Looking forward to this summit on Open Work in Academia at RIT!

Interested in helping design and build the infrastructure necessary to support a growing open access scholarly community? We’re looking for someone creative and interested in developing their skillset. Reach out to me if you have questions about our team and how we work! https://twitter.com/humcommons/status/1549093665691369472

Looking forward to seeing you there!

The great thing I’d forgotten about my office during the summer is how quiet it is, in the sense that no one is around.

The awful thing I’d forgotten about my office during the summer is how loud it is, in the sense that the window unit in here was manufactured in 1982.

This position would be ideal for someone interested in expanding their skillset — you bring the curiosity and drive, and we’ll support your professional development. https://twitter.com/humcommons/status/1549093665691369472

If I had any doubts about my sneaking sense that the world is falling apart, they’re slipping away.

Like @veek, I have just completed my final meeting as president of @achdotorg. I am enormously honored and grateful to have had this opportunity to serve the ACH community. + https://twitter.com/veek/status/1552322695513120768

I’m also delighted to have had the chance to hand the virtual gavel to @quinnanya and @roopikarisam as incoming co-presidents. I cannot wait to see how ACH grows and develops in the years ahead.

Y’all said you wanted to be respectful of folks’ time! This was a very clear demonstration thereof.

Replying to @quinnanya, @JenServenti and @profwernimont

My institution publishes its federally negotiated rates. The vast majority of humanities grants $$and a lot of socsci as well$$ falls under “other sponsored activities.” “Research” has a very empirically oriented definition.

Replying to @quinnanya, @JenServenti and @profwernimont

Also, for very small grants, my college's pre-awards officer has been able to negotiate a 10% rate.

Replying to @quinnanya, @JenServenti and @profwernimont

Thank you, Glen! It has been such a joy!

Ha, good question. Where our office of sponsored programs is concerned, pretty much any NEH grant could qualify. Their standards are set on NIH, DOE, and NSF. But I have a *wonderful* pre-award admin who handles those negotiations brilliantly.

A nearby phone number has been calling me several times daily for the last week plus. I finally caved and answered. And now remember why I do not answer calls from unrecognized numbers. +

How I got selected for a survey regarding the comparative trustworthiness and strategic vision of automotive industry leaders I will never know.
