Another rant about academia and open source | Digifesto
"In FOSS development, there’s a secret ethic that’s not particularly well articulated by either the Free Software Movement or the Open Source Initiative, but which I believe is shared by a lot of developers. It goes something like this:

I’m going to try to build a totally great new thing. It’s going to be a lot of work, but it will be worth it because it’s going to be so useful and cool. Gosh, it would be helpful if other people worked on it with me, because this is a lonely pursuit and having others work with me will help me know I’m not chasing after a windmill. If somebody wants to work on it with me, I’m going to try hard to give them what they need to work on it. But hell, even if somebody tells me they used it and found six problems in it, that’s motivating; that gives me something to strive for. It means I have (or had) a user. Users are awesome; they make my heart swell with pride. Also, bonus, having lots of users means people want to pay me for services or hire me or let me give talks. But it’s not like I’m trying to keep others out of this game, because there is just so much that I wish we could build and not enough time! Come on! Let’s build the future together!

I think this is the sort of ethic that leads to the kind of community building that Stodden was talking about. It requires a leap of faith: that your generosity will pay off and that the world won’t run out of problems to be solved. It requires self-confidence because you have to believe that you have something (even something small) to offer that will make you a respected part of an open community without walls to shelter you from criticism. But this ethic is the relentlessly spreading meme of the 21st century and it’s probably going to be victorious by the start of the 22nd."

Integration robot for buildbot and github
"Bors is an automated integrator for github and buildbot.

It's written for the rust project, so probably contains a number of peculiarities of this project. You may need to do some work to reuse it elsewhere.

We assume bors is run in a loop, perhaps once per minute from cron (github has a rate-limited API). Each time it runs it reloads its entire state from github and buildbot, decides what the most fruitful next-thing it can do is, does that one thing, and exits. This is a crude design but it means the script and workspace is mostly stateless and should (once debugged) never require operator intervention in the workspace driving it, only sometimes on the sites it reads from (github and buildbot)."

Suberic Networks: Expertise
"We have worked with free and open source platforms such as DSpace, Fedora Commons, Hydra, Project Blacklight, Open Journal Systems (OJS), Omeka, and EPrints. We've written code that glues together cataloging systems (library and archival) with repositories, whether using APIs, communication protocols such as Z39.50 or OAI-PMH, or crosswalks via XML representations such as EAD or MARCXML. We've crafted user interfaces, both patron and back-office facing. We've curated text, video, audio, and data content."

"This is the process I'm using to prepare the video for a vid I'm starting. I figure it may be interesting or useful to some people. I use the command-line ffmpeg directly, and not Handbrake or another application like that, partially because I'm vidding on Linux (Kubuntu) and partially because I prefer to have this level of control over all the various settings."

How to train your dragons: five little-known ways to activate the talent of analysts offshore
"Managing Expectations
This is a big one. It comes up over and over again. Recently it manifested itself into "saying no boldly". There is a tendency to say yes as a default, when the answer is clearly no. Then a week of scrambling takes place to reposition things way past the deadline. Loss of face at one end; steam and frustration at the other. Life is so much easier when "solution-based Nos" are clear. Still a lot to be done here at both ends to ensure Yes is Yes, No is No and Maybe is we'll try our best, but with caveats."

FAQs - Frontline Analysts
"Moral implications

The local employment impact of outsourcing is positive, compared to what would happen if firms did not gain efficiency by outsourcing. A benchmark would be what happened to jobs in factories which did not automate. I should say that we never have and never will enter a revolving door where there is one person out while our person comes in."

Training cross asset analysts
"The next stage is all about learning to tell stories. This seems to be under-emphasised in modern business education, but it’s the basis of equity research in my view. The analysts who I’ve been doing cross-asset training with at Frontline are smart and creative people, but you need to build their confidence up a bit. People buy or sell stocks and equity derivatives because they’ve got a view about the future, and the only way you can have a confident view about the future is to have a story which makes sense of the recent past."
