👋 I’m a scientist who's spent the last decade of my life doing research. Everyone reading or watching the news lately has been exposed to more science & data than they could have ever imagined (or hoped for), AND THE TIME HAS COME TO GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT HOW SCIENCE IS DONE!

Hey again people. So I had some free time and gathered all of your answers to my previous question as to what apps do you #selfhost . You can all see that winner is #Nextcloud followed by #Yunohost . Quite curious to see why eg. one can selfhost an RSS and not get the links directly from its source and read them in a client...Also quite few of you run these services on a Pi3 or 3b+.

Facebook now publicly praises privacy, but in court they present a different message saying “There is no invasion of privacy at all, because there is no privacy” & "You have to closely guard something to have a reasonable expectation of privacy." Um, no. dailydot.com/debug/facebook-la

So many great points in this essay on metric fixation. Measuring productivity through performance metrics discourages initiative, innovation and risk-taking, and results in gaming, goal displacement and short-termism.

It's no surprise then that a recent study suggests that performance measurement systems negatively impact performance, finding that employee behavior can change when performance is being measured.

Nice analysis of skills in demand today and specific focus of work.
