The Open Insulin Project: A Case Study for ‘Biohacked’ Medicines
…Rather in-depth and realistic analysis of the open source insulin project…
Today, 250 years ago, on January 5 1769 James Watt was granted a patent for his #steam engine. 🚂
While the #inventor was not the first to use steam to perform mechanical work, his key improvements brought higher #efficiency. His invention is considered one of the cornerstones of the Industrial Revolution.
How using open data science has worked for the Ocean Health Index. It's impressive how big a difference their open processes have made on their progress. https://opensource.com/article/18/12/protecting-world-oceans #OpenScience #OpenData

New paper out! We used the @AllenInstitute@twitter.com human brain atlas to link brain imaging and genetic data in Alzheimer's disease (@ADNI3study@twitter.com data) using a structural equation model. Great work from Sjoerd Husiman in collaboration with @Imaging_Gen@twitter.com.
I am looking for a PhD student interested in #openscience, ontologies, and nanomaterials and their interactions with living matter, to work on the NanoCommons project: https://www.academictransfer.com/en/50675/phd-candidate-for-the-nanocommons-project-fhmlnutrim-department-of-bioinformatics/
so there's this website called https://earth.nullschool.net/
and it's fucking awesome. you can check live maps of weather, wind, temperature, ocean, chemical, and particle data collected by our satellites. It looks amazing too, I've seen a lot of hurricanes develop and run their course in real time, or keep tabs on air pollution caused by forest fires. Check it out, it's free and badass.

Mathematician Marie-Sophie Germain, who established foundational results in the study of both Fermat’s Last Theorem and the theory of elasticity, and was the first woman to win the Prix Extraordinaire of the Paris Academy of Sciences, was born #OTD in 1776.
The Conflict over Open Access between Elsevier and German Academic Institutions Shows the Importance of Journal Subscriptions
As an agreement on terms of access to paywall-protected journals between Germany’s educational and scientific organizations and the international publishing house Elsevier continues to elude the negotiating parties…
Decided to read @RufusPollock@Twitter’s new book *The Open Revolution* for #OAWeek. Despite some glaring grammatical mistakes, I found it a provocative read about the direction we’re heading in with our present Closed world. The potential for innovation in an Open society is incredibly exciting. Pollock provides ideas on alternatives to the monopoly of intellectual property and invites readers to think outside the box. Let’s make this happen!! #OpenAccess #OpenScience #OpenRevolution

With the start of the #OAWeek today the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) released their Open Policy.
This is a great day for all colleagues and me that co-authored the policy and brought open discourses to this point at our university!

Looking for chapter authors for some parts of an Introduction to #Philosophy open textbook I'm helping to edit. Also looking for editor for Aesthetics section. Open textbook is free of cost, licensed to allow re-use (CC BY). This is a volunteer activity; we have no money, sadly, but a lot of enthusiasm!
Science must be opened — because science opens everything else!
