Congratulations to Offspring vocalist Bryan Holland
on finishing his PhD work on microRNAs in coding parts of HIV. Intriguing data. Long in coming, following hit album prompting him to drop out in 1994. http://digitallibrary.usc.edu/cdm/compoundobject/collection/p15799coll40/id/364391/rec/1
Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication. Pick a host that you trust — you can still talk with all hosts running Mastadon. Any individual can run a Mastodon instantiation and join in this social hub in a jiffy.
