Pushing scholarly #publishing toward a 100% #openaccess model. https://aeon.co/ideas/scholarly-publishing-is-broken-heres-how-to-fix-it
This Aeon article includes discussion on improving the way peer review, etc. works. The author (Tennant) says" "All of the technology and traits to build a hybridised scholarly commons infrastructure already exists. It is up to academic communities themselves to step away from their apathy and towards a fairer and more democratic system for sharing our knowledge and work."

Mastodon: Fedibertsora euskaraz
Fedibertsoa elkarrekin bateragarriak diren gizarte-sare federatu libreen ekosistema bat da. Hainbat zerbitzaritan eta saretan egonda ere, erabiltzaileak elkarrekin komunikatzen dira federazioari esker.
Sare guzti hauen artean hazkunde deigarriena izaten ari dena Mastodon da, Twitter-en ordezko etiko bat.
Happy to be #movingtoGitLab for now. Yes, I know about #IPFS and other decentralised options, and the risk of simply moving to yet another centralised business, but for the moment this is probably not a good choice for me because of (1) the extra work, (2) the loss of bells and whistles that #GitLab and #GitHub add on top of Git, (3) the fact that IPFS is still alpha, and (4 ) the requirement to still use something accessible for the wider public because I teach and interact with beginners.
It was easier to program a finite element code from scratch than to create the spreatsheet to compute the final marks of my students.

In the quest to escape #GAFAM I've been testing #disroot which I came across just yesterday. I'm thinking it could make more sense to go #self-hosted (even at home, without buying 3rd party server space) but... is it worth the hassle? Me not being an expert in the field? Sure it would be pointless that each of us needed to go this way. Maybe it just needs to be a public service...
[EN⬇️] #GAFAM etik alde egiteko asmotan @disroot probatzen nabil, eta kasi zerbitzari propioan (igual etxekoan, alokatzen ibili gabe) aritzea zentzuzkoagoa iruditzen ari zait. Baino merezi al du horrenbesteko lana hartzeak? Aditua ez naizela kontuan izanda? Denok hala ibili behar izateak, berriz, garbi ez du inongo zentzurik. Zerbitzu publikoa behar luke...
