Every time I see the Hacker Ethic praised without critically challenging its shortcomings, I have to think of "Programming is Forgetting: Toward a New Hacker Ethic" by Allison Parrish and wish it was more popular. You can read the transcript here http://opentranscripts.org/transcript/programming-forgetting-new-hacker-ethic/
I find it absurd when people accuse #SciHub of "stealing" from journal publishers. It is the publishers who are stealing, from the scholars who write, peer review and edit the journals without pay, from universities and their libraries who have to pay to so their researchers can publish papers *and* to get access to them, and from the public who fund all this, through public funding, tuition fees and so on.
I'm a designer and independent researcher in media studies with an interest in #network politics, federated #archives, #machinelearning, #anthropology, poetic and/or activist #analytics and #bots as agents.
I am a #floss software user with bad habits and a Python ingénue.
Looking forward to the view from here.
