MozFest (and the Mozilla Science Lab) featured in this week’s Pod Delusion podcast. Tune in to hear more from Mark Surman, Josh Greenberg, Greg Wilson and more (first 12+ minutes).
(And more to come about MozFest soon … Stay tuned.)
A few months ago, I heard about a crowdfunded project called “HackYourPHD” – a community and resource building effort led by a researcher in France to collect information and run interviews with a diverse cast of characters in the open science world. The founder, Celya Gruson-Daniel (a neuroscientist by training), had become frustrated by many of the analog practices and mindsets in science, and decided to set out to crowdfund a trip through North America to do research on open research.
I had the pleasure of chatting with Celya last week at Columbia University, as she passed through New York on her nationwide tour. You can listen to the audio of our interview linked above, as well as listen to her interviews with other key folks in this space here: https://soundcloud.com/hackyourphd/
Quite possibly the best summation of the polarisation (and in many cases, absolute idiocy / insidiousness) of the Adria Richards / PyCon commentary. Well said, Tom.
A painfully cute one, at that. Done using Mozilla’s PopcornMaker.
Have a watch 🙂
For those of us who need some peace from networking and “being on” at times, without feeling the need to supply an excuse. Cannot +1 this enough.
