I'm Alex Kearney, a PhD student studying Computer Science at the University of Alberta. I focus on Artificial Intelligence and Epistemology.

When I'm not playing with robots, I hang out with the indieweb community, drink tea, and scubadive.

It's happened, I've turned into a robot. Or, rhiaro was nice and gave me a tele-presence so I could pretend to be in Edinburgh.

Things I did:

  • Added linear navigation
  • Did some refactoring
  • Added a reply-counter on my stream
  • Added a mention-counter on my stream
  • Broke self-webmentioning...
  • Forgot I was still on-camera when I started a lab discussion on Asimov.

I hope we have more HWC when I'm back in Edinburgh for the winter...


I added a nice little counter at the corner of each post on my stream.

It gives a heads-up as to how many people have responded and whether or not it's in response to another post.


Woo, I now have linear navigation. In other words, the older posts button now actually displays older posts!
