My #Engineering Lecture Series speaker this week continued the discussion of robotics and drew inspiration from last week's speaker from Boston Dynamics.
She asked us to consider the responsibilities of engineers to consider the implications of their work using this week's deployment of the Spot robot by the NYPD.
What if we built an inter-operable network of repositories. Individual researchers could host their personal repositories and institutions could continue to host institutional or disciplinary focused repositories as they do now.
Works would be discoverable across the network regardless of a researcher's "home" repository. Would indexing services still be necessary?
I was really impressed with today's seminar speaker in my class and his perspective on the #engineering design process.
sort of video eye contact, Youtube link
For sure buying this for use in all future video meetings.
My university seems to be continuing is slide into MS control. Can't really have a local server to host things anymore. Can't really even have my own web pages hosted by the university.

Really makes me appreciate the stuff I see at places like OERu. Which I think is largely maintained by @lightweight
Listening to a little Waynu music to take me back to my sabbatical in Peru.
Meanwhile, my graduate institution still lets me keep my email address and unlimited cloud storage space 8 years after I graduated.
Gonna be honest that I didn't realize Switzerland was this backwards.
