Last week I read a really interesting paper about OER management in Ireland. Here's my blog post about it https://blogs.pjjk.net/phil/devolved-management-of-oer-in-irish-higher-education/
1. Angelica Risquez, Claire McAvinia, Yvonne Desmond, Catherine Bruen, Deirdre Ryan, and Ann Coughlan. (2020) “Towards a Devolved Model of Management of OER? The Case of the Irish Higher Education Sector” International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning Vol 21, No 1 available at http://www.irrodl.org/index.php/irrodl/article/download/4545/5272?inline=1
A software tester walks into a bar.
Runs into a bar.
Crawls into a bar.
Dances into a bar.
Flies into a bar.
Jumps into a bar.
a lizard in a beer glass.
A real customer walks into the bar and asks where the bathroom is.
The bar goes up in flames.

The final result is:
* R = 25%
* G = 40%
* B = 36%
As expected (and described in the thread), the gamut is pretty low (ie. not an immense possibility of colours, due to fact that masto polls options sum is 100)
0..100 to 0..255 (in gimp) give:
* R = 63.8 (64)
* G = 102
* B = 91.8 (92)
It's a soft, dark, bluish green!
It's complimentary color is #66404A (102,64,74)
We could call it "Fédi-vert"?

My research application has been approved.
I'm looking for open educators to participate in a research study! I hope you will take some time to share your thoughts. This study has been approved by the U of Calgary Conjoint Faculties Research Ethics Board (REB20-1113).
I hope some folks from here might consider contributing as my initial questions emerged from here 🙏

Is there a good directory of #coops that offer services alternative to mainstream ones, especially for devs? E.g. alternatives to GitHub, website hosting, email hosting, cloud storage, etc
Remember when a Google #search used to lead you somewhere?
Now it increasingly just keeps you on Google. In fact, Google results take up 62.6% of the first screen of search results in a sample of 15,000 searches.
#Google is building a walled garden that encompasses some of the most accessed information on the internet with no recourse for businesses who are suddenly finding themselves on the wrong side, cut off from their users.
If you're involved with WordPress or ClassicPress you might be interested in a conference I am helping organize, even though it happens in the other place:

@bgcarlisle My favourite use of singular “they” is Virginia Woolf’s use of it for Orlando in their moment of transition. That was 1928.

Remember when people (maybe including me) were saying that you didn't need metadata when you had Google. I think Google needing schema.org clarified that one, but here's confirmation that it's proper metadata not just a few key/value pairs https://www.seroundtable.com/google-schema-markup-harder-28928.html
