> Following in the footsteps of linguistics journal Lingua, the editorial board of the Elsevier-owned Journal of Informetrics has resigned and launched a rival journal that will be free for all to read.

> The entire editorial board of the Elsevier-owned Journal of Informetrics resigned Thursday in protest over high open-access fees, restricted access to citation data and commercial control of scholarly work.

> Today, the same team is launching a new fully open-access journal called Quantitative Science Studies. The journal will be for and by the academic community and will be owned by the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI). It will be published jointly with MIT Press.

but seriously, somewhere between 2000 and 2019 the IT industry seamlessly transitioned from

"we provide precision engineering tools, your data is yours, you should not need to trust us or anyone, mathematics is your guarantee, crypto 4 ever. "

to

"give us your data. all of it. give. no secrets. hold nothing back. in return we will... train AIs on it.. and provide unspecified 'services'... for someone, who may be you... that can change at any time... and we are funded by, uh. Look, a unicorn!"

This is SO COOL.

"An approach comparing and contrasting the languages can help illustrate the rules of writing in both, how they differ and why. That way, instead of just pointing out students' errors, teachers can help them develop metalinguistic awareness and an understanding of why each language has the rules it does."

“...this was after implementing a bunch of rules to do as much clean-up as I could including stripping out passwords that were still in hashed form, ignoring strings that contained control characters and those that were obviously fragments of SQL statements.”

Fortunately for me, all my passwords are fragments of SQL statements.

I joined .Social during, what will be known as, the great transhumance of April 2017. But it's time for me to move again. I've come to find .town as a place where I would feel at home. It's also a way for me to find a smaller community while still staying connected to the rest of the . And I look forward to that. So please click the follow button at @xuv if you want to stay in touch.

worse than nuclear weapons! dramatically worse!! so far nukes have done remarkably little damage to the planet and the species. they've certainly killed far fewer people than cars have.

"FFA, or the Finite Field Arithmetic library, differs from the typical Open Sores abomination, in that — rather than trusting the author blindly with their lives — prospective users are expected to read and fully understand every single line. In exactly the same manner that you would understand and pack your own parachute." - loper-os.org/?p=1913

More of this kind of thinking please...
