Elsevier - one of the largest and most notorious scholarly publishers - are monitoring Open Science in the EU on behalf of the European Commission. Jon Tennant argues that they cannot be trusted.

Não bastaram as referatas, os animados encontros das sextas-feiras entre os cientistas do Instituto Biológico de São Paulo com outros intelectuais, artistas e um público geral para tratar de novidades da ciência e da cultura. Em 1948, em busca de espaços mais amplos para promover a circulação de ideias, criou-se a Sociedade Brasileira para o Progresso da Ciência (SBPC). Priorizando a comunicação entre pesquisadores, a agremiação ganhou espaço ao lado de instituições de pesquisa ou de apoio à ciência que emergiram na década de 1950 e moldaram as formas de produção do trabalho científico válidas ainda hoje no país. “A…
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (2018) by Terry Gilliam

This movie is so good, on so many levels... I've already seen it twice on the big screen, and I wouldn't be surprised if I happen to go again. <3

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote - Wikipedia

Imagem/foto

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is a 2018 adventure-comedy film directed by Terry Gilliam and written by Gilliam and Tony Grisoni, loosely based on the novel Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes. It is widely recognized as one of the most infamous examples of development hell in film history, with Gilliam unsuccessfully attempting to make the film man...
  
I'd surely love to see it, I like Gilliam. One of my favorite movie sites gives it a 4.5 out of 10. Unluckily it is an Italian site, so it's hard to unserstand (anyway : https://quinlan.it/2018/05/22/the-man-who-killed-don-quixote/ ).

Nonetheless I think I'm going to see it sooner or later
  
Questa mi sembra essere la tipica critica dove si prova a transformare tutti i qualità in difetti per ragione qui non sonno espressi nel texto. Non fa' confianza, vai a vederlo. Abbraccio ;-)

La empresa Foxconn es una ensambladora de smarphones con sede en China. Esta compañía, en la cual trabajan más de un millón de personas, es conocida por las condiciones de explotación que impone a sus trabajadores, lo que ha ocasionado decenas de suicidios en sus fábricas. A raíz de esto, los patrones decidieron colocar redes para impedir a sus trabajadores arrojarse por las ventanas, así como establecer un contrato laboral por el cual los empleados se comprometen a no suicidarse.

Es evidente la complicidad entre los consumidores de tecnologías digitales con la realidad que enfrentan estas trabajadores.

Acá dejo el poema de un trabajador de Foxcoon, llamado Xu Lizhi. El se suicidó arrojándose desde un edificio pues consideraba que su vida era infeliz.

Tragué una luna de hierro,

que llaman tornillo.

Tragué vertidos industriales y formularios de paro,

me incliné ante las maquinas, ¡que pronto mueren nuestros jóvenes!

Tragué trabajo, tragué pobreza,

tragué puentes peatonales, tragué toda está vida oxidada.

Ya no puedo tragar nada más.

Todo lo que trago se atraganta en mi garganta.

Hago llegar a todo mi país

este poema de vergüenza.

Xu Lizhi

We think everyone interested in science should be able to access the world’s cutting-edge research. Complicated stuff needs to be explained – yet, most scientific publications address an expert audience only. In our videos, the researchers personally explain their latest insights into the realities of life.

Re: Facebook shuts the gate after the horse has bolted, and hurts real research in the process

 Paris, France (Map) 
My response to Facebook shuts the gate after the horse has bolted, and hurts real research in the process, which came up on a mailing list I participate:

That's a really good point for discussion.

Ain't this is basically fighting for the right to continue to use unethically collected data for research?

On a much milder - yet much larger - scale, ain't it as if data from experiments on war prisioners was being shut down, and the research community was crying out about how bad it is to lose that data instead of pointing to the fact that war prisoners are being used for experiments?

Even if having the data could help us understand the consequences of these experiments, and even if that might eventually help avoid the worst of it, doesn't that still represent an approach where it is a priori OK to violate the prisoner's human rights?

Perhaps not, perhaps we still need more research to support the idea that we should not have one single entity that collects, distributes, analyses, decides on, auctions and manipulates the identity and information on the social - personal and political - lives of billions of people.

But perhaps most of this kind of research is just piggybacking on the ease to massively violate human rights in order to build an academic career and feel good by posing as a critic. Let alone the fact that most "critical" research about Facebook is actually doing the job for their marketing deparment, by "proving" to advertisers its effectiveness.

Facing that, and not needeing further proof that an oligopoly of information and identity platforms is not suitable for democracy, I'd rather focus my energy elsewhere.

That researchers and universities should be researching and promoting descentralized information and identity platforms [1, 2, 3]; and figuring out how to do on-line social research under ethical conditions.
