Great news that the @EU_Commission@twitter.com @EU_DIGIT@twitter.com is embracing open source as part of a balanced innovation strategy and increasing partnerships with wonderful open source organizations. Looking forwards to seeing the élan extend across Europe (@ow2@twitter.com @OpenForumEurope@twitter.com ...) twitter.com/theasf/status/1175

We have removed 259 accounts identified as falsely boosting public sentiment online in 🇪🇸. Operated by @populares@twitter.com, these accounts were active for a relatively short period, and consisted primarily of fake accounts engaging in spamming or retweet behaviour to increase engagement twitter.com/benimmo/status/117

Open Core is not Open Source. Don’t confuse the two. - Deborah Bryant from Red Hat.

And a slide about the dangers of open core.

I am shocked that an employee of Bain Capital might still be trying to find a definition of Open Source that will let him make more money while still encouraging people to contribute to the code for free

Brilliant thread! I see folks that want to change the OSD to narrow collaboration. I’ll pay attention when someone finds a way to expand collaboration. Otherwise, you’re just reinventing proprietary software. twitter.com/vanl/status/117475

Clap, clap! @vmbrasseur@twitter.com is so Right On here (and in her other recent reaction tweets).

I hear there was a talk at about how if you build a business on top of Apache-licensed code you don't contribute to, it's stealing. Here's a the folks that wrote the license and founded the Foundation, talking about how that's not true: youtube.com/watch?v=0CLDVMcyo1

Pre-registration will be used by @msrconf@twitter.com to address publication bias from postdiction (deriving a hypothesis after you analyze the data). Seems obvious for quantitative research but there are also potential benefits for qualitative research: tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10
