DTA goes cold on blockchain -
The Digital Transformation Agency appears less than impressed with blockchain’s current capabilities after it was given $700,000 in budget funding to investigate the technology.

After its initial research, the federal government’s digital office has found that blockchain is at the “top of a hype cycle” and is currently less effective than other existing technologies in delivering government services.

The problem with Puffin crossings | As Easy As Riding A Bike
e rules for zebra crossings state that if there is an island, then the crossing should be treated as two crossings, but in general, regular traffic/pedestrian signals don’t reproduce this (at least not in London). In other words, a central island/reservation means one thing in a zebra crossing and anothe

OSF Preprints | The Scholarly Commons - principles and practices to guide research communication
Despite all available technology and despite major disruptions that the internet brought about in many sectors of modern life, scholarly communication has only seen change at glacial pace. Many useful, laudable tools and services are being developed to solve specific issues for particular domain groups. However, the question of how these efforts fit together remains largely unaddressed. If we have alternative models for all parts of the system, will that result in a coherent system? Will it be interoperable? Will it appeal to people as viable alternative? Will it be open and participatory for all?

The solution we propose is that of a scholarly commons: a set of principles and rules for the community of researchers and other stakeholders to ascribe to, the practices based on those principles, and the common pool of resources around which the principles and practices revolve. The tenets of the scholarly commons are that research and knowledge should be freely available to all who wish to use or reuse it (open, FAIR and citable), participation in the production and use of knowledge should be open to all who wish to participate, and there should be no systemic barriers and disincentives to prevent either such free use or open participation.

In this paper, we outline the backgrounds of the idea of the scholarly commons and the various considerations that play a role in defining it. We share the principles of the scholarly commons and the degrees of freedom interpreting those principles, and consider the broader landscape of ideas and charters that the scholarly commons fits into. Finally, we present a call for action to involve like-minded people in the discussion on how to bring such a commons to fruition, and what this would mean for different communities within science and scholarship.

The Forum Network, hosted by the OECD | Bridging dividesBridging divides
Over the past 15 years, the OECD Forum has grown to become a major international conference that debates the most pressing social and economic challenges confronting society. At the OECD Forum, policies and ideas are shared by a growing community of leaders and influencers from government, business, civil society and academia. This site is designed to allow the OECD Forum community to extend their discussions and exchanges year-round and to expand the network to include those who cannot attend the conference in person.

The Forum Network is open for anyone to browse, read and share its content. To comment and contribute, you will need to join the network as a Friend - anyone may join. Friends are able to post comments and to ask questions (comments and questions will be moderated) and you may be invited to become a contributor.
