New personal best @semiparis: 1h45m51s. Amazing weather, if not for the heavy contrary wind in the last 5k... Thanks .

Come saprete bida.im è un server autogestito quindi nessun* è pagato per il mantenimento del servizio ma purtroppo l'infrastruttura ha dei costi inevitabili. Considerando le migliaia di utenti registrate su questa istanza mastodon bastarebbe che ognun* facesse una donazione del costo di una birra per sostenere le spese di un anno. Quindi se avete voglia e la possibilità di supportare questo progetto ci farebbe molto piacere. La pagina da cui fare le donazioni è questa:

bida.im/dona/

Per qualsiasi chiarimento scriveteci.
Grazie

The amount of economists engaging in pissing contexts based on academic rankings, disregarding Goodhart's Law is appalling. (It's appalling in any field, including mine, but economists should know better.)

Hmm. Spell checker suggests replacing "cardinality" with "carnality". Is this one of those "How to get young people interested in math" things that keeps landing in my mailbox?

@civodul I'm so thrilled that the obvious co-interest of Software Heritage and Guix (esp w/ Guix HPC) are lining up so nicely, and this is a great example!

Read about the #Guix #ReproducibleResearch hackathon we held last week:
hpc.guix.info/blog/2020/07/rep

The activity around the Guix Past channel, which has received a bunch of “new old packages”, shows the real need for practical software archeology in science—far from the bleeding edge that we hackers love. :-)

for more details check out the great paper presentation video by Antoine Pietri at: youtube.com/watch?v=kmFWqvpZ-8 and the full paper here: hal.inria.fr/hal-02527811

Highlight: with increasing diversity in Git hosting and practices, we should not assume that forking always happen via the "fork" button on one platform. There is much more than that and we need a global view, in the style of Software Heritage, to avoid undercounting software forks.

In our paper « Forking without Clicking » (preprint: hal.inria.fr/hal-02527811/docu) we have compared 3 ways of determining that VCS repositories are of one another and discussed the respective methodological implications. It will be presented at at 10:30 UTC today.

A month ago, I offered free editorial services, with priority given to bipoc, lgbtia+, and similar marginalized people. Nobody has taken me up on it, but the offer still stands. I'm a technical writer with a thirty year career, and a ttrpg author and book editor with twenty years of publications across multiple companies. Please help me find relevance by helping you.
