    • agosti agosti now, watching the doc about Aron Swarts https://archive.org/details/TheInternetsOwnBoyTheStoryOfAaronSwartz "The Internet's Own Boy" it makes me angry how I could have given in into this censorhip by the organizer of the symposium. The reason given was, that the director of Mellon Foundation who was supporting JSTOR will be sitting in the back of the room and might not like it. Consequences could be that he would not continue funding the organizers of the meeting (a funding that ended anyway a year later due to a thematic shift in the Mellon Foundation). I still believe it is a big mistake to lock of our knowledge of biodiversity behind paywalls. It needs to be free. And we have to be able to build ways to make this happen, as much as we accept we need free access to air to breath.  1 week ago
