Hi everyone, a little intro: I’m an academic librarian based in NYC, interested in open science, open access, antitrust laws, knowledge graph technologies and decentralized web.

No Eurovision for me today so here you go some really calming photos of art work on display at MOMA that I took this morning

I had a friend with whom I watched Eurovision together but he passed away and now I can’t get myself to watch it.

If you’re in New York head over to the MET to see the incredible "In America: An Anthology of Fashion"


WOW, I wasn’t taking care of myself during this pandemic. Finally booked a bunch of doctor appointments to make sure I’m ok. I was so focused on not getting covid that I forgot about everything else.

This past week was absolutely incredible or to be precise the Knowledge Graph Conference 2022 was incredible. All the slides are available on Zenodo. My little contribution from few years ago was to ask all presenters to post slides there. Even industry folks did it.

I’m so distracted, can’t follow the 2022 conference.

Criminalizing abortion doesn’t stop abortion, it just makes it less safe.

Incredible symposium today as part of the The Knowledge Graph Conference - The Healthcare and Life Sciences Symposium
