doing a little research for a lecture on the history of research ethics on Monday, and I keep coming across the Alliance for Human Research Protection, which is a cloaked site of antivaxers and conspiracy nuts...

The videos will all be in English, 5-10 mins in length, and are supposed to convey useful skills for researchers.

I'm planning on having students produce short instructional videos for an assignment. If I want to encourage them to upload them to , which instance should I direct them to?

I came across TubEdu (tubedu.org/about/instance), which seems to fit the bill, but are there maybe other ones that are better suited?

@jboy in an ideal world we don't need a publons.

my ideal scholarly communications publishing system is overlay journals (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overlay_journal). authors post their articles in a repository and then "journals" are compilations of these already-open-articles organized on a theme or niche, with the peer review available (why it was selected for "journal" and the review of the article itself)

total downer 

The LMS imported this from last year's course.

2020 was some heavy shit huh

I just published a short blog post adding my voice to the chorus of people speaking out against Richard Stallman's return to the @fsf's board of directors. https://mako.cc/copyrighteous/the-free-software-foundation-and-richard-stallman

It's short so I'll include the full text in a thread below.

@jboy it's super inaccurate (shows a LOT of unfunded projects as funded because the paper mentions a funder by name, and then dings people for not having those articles open) and actually pretty harmful (giving labor to google to correct bad data/algo)

Hey fedi, the Recurse Center is offering up to $1000 to trans/non-binary/women programmers for upcoming batches. RC changed my life and is just an amazing experience/community -- see here for more: https://www.recurse.com/blog/156-were-offering-grants-for-our-spring-2-and-summer-1-batches

That's the first meaningful update to Google Scholar I've seen in years.

Google Scholar now shows number of articles that should be OA and whether they are actually available

there's something so satisfying about writing `git push`, hitting enter, and then laying one's finger on the blinking yubikey to seal the deal.

Does anyone know of other projects like CollapseOS and disaster.radio that are developing systems for futures where current (network) infrastructures have stopped functioning?

rabbit hole 

looking through the deletion discussion I see not only that most people appear to have voted "keep", but that one of them is Raymond Williams' son, who seems to be fighting the good fight all over the internets: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Gwy
