Shout-out to The Weather Girls for their commitment to journalistic integrity, not letting news media cite vague sources in their 1982 hit "It's Raining Men"

Pushing scholarly #publishing toward a 100% #openaccess model. aeon.co/ideas/scholarly-publis

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."

Surprised at how many academics here did not know ! Go check it if you are one of them: sci-hub.tw

Scholars, do (or even can) you use sources you can only access through, say, ?

Upcoming free course “Intro to R for Journalists: How to Find Great Stories in Data,” from the Knight Center journalismcourses.org/RC0818.h

I used to wait until the end of the warranty period to root/install a custom ROM on my phone. Not sure it will take that long this time...

Video realizado por Alicia Murillo Ruiz. Muy acertado. Me pregunto cuántas mujeres estuvieron involucradas en la campaña esta del Ayuntamiento de Sevilla.

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.

En esto que estaba yo saliéndome de , , ... Ahora también de ! 🤦 Y el ...! 😰😵😩

Yesterday I registered a domain name using my brand new @disroot email address. Today I woke up with 15 messages in my inbox... and counting! 🤔😫 How do you cope?

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 I've been testing which I came across just yesterday. I'm thinking it could make more sense to go -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⬇️] 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...

Trying @disroot and surprised how well it could fit almost all my needs. Now wondering if going straight to self-hosted (for mail and files at least) does not make even more sense. Thoughts, anyone?
