DO I TAKE THE GIG OR NO?
@rebel_luddite I will NEVER encourage researchers to rely on THEMSELVES for long-term access to materials! As soon as they stop paying for the domain it goes away. Put that shit in an archive or repository!
I would only talk about open source + scholar led tools in this seminar, like all my workshops that deal with making research reproducible
I got an offer to get 500 pounds to do 2 seminar sessions BUT they are co-sponsored by Elsevier (and a university).
BUT I fucking hate Elsevier and getting $$ from them would in no way hinder me from publicly expressing that.
But I am pretty torn about what to do. What do y'all think?
The invite said:
> Would you be able and willing to present a lecture which focuses, more specifically on which actions can researchers take to make their research more reproducible?
twitter thread re: NYPD cop robot weaknesses
The most important takeaway here is that there is a handle underneath the robot, slightly forward of center, that one pulls to release the battery pack. A robot with no batteries isn't a functional robot, so be sure to move away as soon as you feel the catch release and the battery drop free.
Secondarily, *do not under any circumstances grab the robot by the joints.* It *will* break, if not outright *amputate,* fingers that are caught in its moving parts.
Third, all of its sensing systems are optical and spray paint is cheap and unregulated. (don't buy spray paint just to do crimes with it, kids.)
And finally, from further in the thread: "There is, of course, military versions in the works that probably get rid of most of these vulnerabilities but police departments are buying the civilian ones just cause they can."
@zacchiro Zack the paper is paywalled! Where's the OA version that surely exists? HAL?
STARDEW VALLEY BOARDGAME IS OUT
@wilkie and we'll probably do it for them if they ask!
@pixouls totally spies was a good show.
@platypus it's like a fancy final report for Sloan for the conclusion of IASGE and while Josh is very cool about stuff like this, the guidelines say prose :/
