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.

@dajbelshaw Just saw your presentation at ALT 2018 about the federated approach for Moodle.[1] Very promising and consistently thought out!

Don't feel bad or ashamed if you spend your week-end sleeping, resting.

It's *it's purpose*.

It's taking care of yourself, and allowing to gather back some energy. Some time to yourself.

Resting *is* doing something, for you. And it's a good thing to do sometimes.

Gave a workshop yesterday in the central library on & . Twenty people showed up and had a lively discussion about , , , autonomous vehicles and .

In the end, one of them suggested to establish a weekly round table on techno-ethical topics, as everybody agreed that *nothing* was clear about current technical trends. They exchanged mail addresses and want to continue the discussion right away next week.

This was not what I had expected!

@vickysteeves @remram44 Last friday I introduced the general mindset of qualitative content analysis following the homepage of Taguette. My students liked the approach and got the idea.

While following the screenshots on the homepage and explaining the value of the tool I wished for a screenshot that better expresses the aggregated view of marked passages in the text. And I realized that Taguette helps a lot to explain qualitative research from a tool's perspective, not just from theory.
