Pinned toot

Hello there! This is my alternative account; my main account is @nar. I might move to this instance, but my current instance is fine as well. Don't expect, many, if not any, toots from this account.

We now live in 1984, & it's even worse than Orwell imagined.

Free speech is dead, censorship is now fully applauded by the most powerful nation on earth, & it makes me sick to stomach.

To facilitate cross-dataset comparison, the Allen Institute created the common #cell type #nomenclature (CCN).
