w.r.t. Cliff Lynch's plenary, I found it to be a lot of ... weird stuff
he posited that decentralization isn't gaining traction yet bemoaned the rise of "scientific nationalism" (which many are not convinced is a thing) which relies on decentralizing to country-level
he also posited that the Internet started as a non-State (capital s!) driven enterprise and it's being more taken over by gov'ts....ignoring a lot of the history of the Internet
Then I went to an update from Ilya Kremer about Webrecoder -- https://sched.co/Xk3V
Ilya demo'd webrecorder capturing a website using Flash by showing a capture of homestar runner! And he showed "Autopilot" -- a function on top of webrecorder to automatically capture things like all the slides in slideshare, or all the replies in a twitter thread
now I'm in a talk about the CuRe consortium, which includes the Odum Institute, CISER at Cornell, and ISPS about their "computational reproducibility" service and checklist -- https://sched.co/Xk4r
basically they want to train up people to support curation skills for reproducible research, though I haven't seen any community calls or outreach from them besides conf presentations. Hoping they do some of this in the next grant they have now!
I crashed the APC panel late -- it's about how to flip OA (in practice and discourse) away from APCs (bc fuck that!) -- https://cnifall2019membershipmeeting.sched.com/event/Xk3n/37-flipping-open-access-away-from-apcs
As usual Amy Buckland is 😍 and the whole panel is so phenom. Great discussion happening -- one of the panelists is getting "support open" on ALL NEW LIBRARIANS JOB ADS!!! and give all library workers time in their day to learn more about open (in a lot of forms) and support it
Wish I could put that forward at NYU
