Hello Everyone.

Irgendwann ist immer das erste Mal.


Most of the focus seems to be on figuring out how to accommodate the existing legacy journals [...] and very little attention has gone into looking at how you support smaller publishers or more innovative new entrants, people that are trying to really bring change to scholarly publishing.

And without supporting these new innovations, there is a risk that the additional funding coming in is going to further entrench the traditional publishers as we start moving towards open access.

Load Balancing via Sleeping.

"Selfenrollment will be available to students from ... 7:30. Reason for this early time of the day is that this will reduce the load on the system. Experience shows that students often and in large numbers try to refresh the page for selfenrollment before it comes available, what may lead to a slow system. Early in the morning the number of online (awake) students will be lower, thereby reducing this peak load."

There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop!

Academic spamming has reached a new level when someone some bot suggest that you should patent a logic.

General Paper Lot.

The more sophisticated science becomes, the harder it is to communicate results. Papers today are longer than ever and full of jargon and symbols. They depend on chains of computer programs that generate data, and clean up data, and plot data, and run statistical models on data. These programs tend to be both so sloppily written and so central to the results that it’s contributed to a replication crisis, or put another way, a failure of the paper to perform its most basic task: to report what you’ve actually discovered, clearly enough that someone else can discover it for themselves.
