- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created

and the fixing just continues :)

Hey, I might even manage that long awaited version 5 of the ontology :)

blah... was struggling with the ENM ontology for too long this morning... was down... does not happen often, but turned on GitHub Pages now, and use that for ontology IRIs and for owl:import's...

really happy to sit down with Nina today and hack on their AMBIT software... we used this in the eNanoMapper project, and will be using it in NanoCommons...

Practically, we're working on loading NanoWiki 5 (see Figshare), maybe some nanomedicine data, some ontology work (see, and after lunch on (bio) annotation

until an hour ago, I thought my day could not get any worse... oh boy, was I wrong ...

e.g. I would love to know if I could fit a (machine readable) nanopublication in one toot...

one thing I haven't figured out yet... can I listen with this account also to local timelines of other servers? If so, how?

Kwantlen Polytechnic University in the Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada) area introduces a second Zed Cred (zero textbook cost degree program) using open educational resources!


Hi folks,

about #OpenCitations and #OpenScience in general, we have just published the slides of all the talks of the Workshop on Open Citations #WOOC2018, held in Bologna on 3-5 September:

We had 2 terrific workshop days, 1 inspiring hack day, 60 participants from 12 countries, 11 invited speakers, 13 selected talks, 7 poster presentations, food, drinks and a lot of fun!

We will add soon the video of the talks as well as the links to the outcomes of the hack day!

I just blogged my initial few Mastodon thoughts and observations... @invaderxan, I took the liberty of using one of your (public) toots as example...

Part of this story is a #Wikidata query to show Mastodon accounts for authors in the Journal of Cheminformatics (which is very easily rewritten for any other journal):

ok, now that I have a few more followers, anyone knows how to use IFTTT or something similar to autopost toots on Twitter, *with* images?

OK, added most of the professors of the Maastricht University, Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience ... starting to look interesting :)
