Jun 8, 2014 at 1:02 PM - neurobadger: kat bolstad and steve o'shea are doing the dissection, right?
Jun 8, 2014 at 1:04 PM - tonmo: Not steve, to my knowledge... but Kat (@Tintenfisch), Aaron (@GPO87) and Heather (@Heather Braid) are in on it, I think

Jun 8, 2014 at 1:07 PM - tonmo: :shamrock_t: :fingerscrossed:
Jun 8, 2014 at 1:07 PM - neurobadger: i am super-grateful to Robyn for hiring me - this publication I got out of doing work with her has gotten me some serious mileage
Jun 8, 2014 at 1:09 PM - tonmo: awesome... Robyn is great! (And indeed she may see this... this is like a shoutbox feature... and messages will be archieved into a thread on a daily basis...)
Jun 8, 2014 at 1:09 PM - neurobadger: cool

Jun 9, 2014 5:23 AM - Tintenfisch: Woohoo! :squidaut:
Jun 9, 2014 6:46 AM - tonmo: ProTip: to get an email when you're @tagged in a post, opt in here (4th box): http://www.tonmo.com/community/account/contact-details
Jun 9, 2014 6:47 AM - tonmo: ...and note, tagging does not work in chat :rolleyes2:
Jun 9, 2014 11:21 AM - GPO87: Just to clear things up Tonmo, the squid dissection will be run by Kat and Heather, I am in London currently enjoying the amazing array of cephs stored at the National History Museum! I got to see a fabulous Giant Squid of my own, no photos I'm afriad...
Jun 9, 2014 1:44 PM - neurobadger: In non-cephalopod news, a computer has just passed the Turing Test. We're all doomed.
Jun 9, 2014 4:25 PM - DWhatley: Does the live chat have a feature to ONLY show live chat posts? Showing all thread posts is too much info I think and confuses live chats
Jun 9, 2014 4:28 PM - neurobadger: It gets a bit spammy too.
Jun 9, 2014 5:56 PM - tonmo: well... it does. options are, none, new threads only, and new threads and new replies
Jun 9, 2014 5:57 PM - tonmo: archives only capture chats. will reduce to new threads only.
Jun 9, 2014 6:04 PM - tonmo: ok... should only be new threads now. should be a lot less noise; lets see how it goes.
Jun 9, 2014 6:07 PM - tonmo: thanks for the clarification aaron! and yes nb... the turing test. at least octobot is on our side! (i hope)

Jun 10, 2014 12:44 AM - DWhatley: Looking up NB's findings and reading the comments in the Washington Post article, I found this amusing, "30% of people believe Phillies fans are human also."
Jun 10, 2014 12:50 AM - DWhatley: The list is better but I still vote for chat only, we have a "New Posts" list that works well. I don't suppose you can turn on individual threads ? That might work for things like TONMOcon
Jun 10, 2014 7:17 AM - tonmo: ok, it's chat only now. and about your Phillies comment, is that directed at anyone in particular? :mad:
Jun 10, 2014 7:06 PM - tonmo: Upcoming TV Chat opportunities:
Jun 10, 2014 7:07 PM - tonmo: Monster Squid: The Giant Is Real A giant squid is observed in its natural habitat. Other Next On: Fri 06/20, 11:00 AM ET SCIHD

Jun 11, 2014 7:11 PM - beingevolved: I work for a small, non-profit maritime museum in Massachusetts and the staff absolutely LOVES squid. Would we be allowed to show the broadcast as a free public event?
Jun 11, 2014 7:35 PM - tonmo: yes!
Jun 11, 2014 7:37 PM - tonmo: as far as TONMO is concerned, that is... see the Extra/Extra thread for my response on that!

Jun 12, 2014 12:33 AM - DWhatley: I did not write the Phillies comment, don't shoot the messenger :wink: Chat only is much better.

Jun 14, 2014 2:18 PM - neurobadger: t minus four days to giant squid
Jun 14, 2014 2:18 PM - neurobadger: my excitement, it is barely containable
Jun 14, 2014 2:21 PM - neurobadger: saw a picture of the Tentacles gift shop at Monterey Bay Aquarium. Shopping spree?

Jun 16, 2014 12:38 PM - neurobadger: The Smithsonian's Invertebrate House is closing. This is COMPLETELY INEXCUSABLE
Jun 16, 2014 5:25 PM - tonmo: It's a shame. If I'm honest, I am not a big fan of zoos... I feel bad for a lot of the animals. Inverts are among those that I feel have a favorable score when considering "opportunity for the public to learn" and "ability to provide a comfortable environment if done right."
Jun 16, 2014 5:43 PM - neurobadger: Yeah. A lot of vertebrate species give me significant misgivings about zoos, but invertebrate species can really flourish there
