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 (@firstname.lastname@example.org @OpenForumEurope@twitter.com ...) https://twitter.com/theasf/status/1175241669337174016
"We build our computers the way we build our cities -- over time, without a plan, on top of ruins" https://www.salon.com/1998/05/12/feature_321/ I think this post has aged rather well since 1998...
The 2020 @email@example.com Mining Challenge CfP is now available at https://easychair.org/cfp/msr2020mc. Mine the huge Software Heritage Graph Dataset, which contains the development history of publicly available software at the granularity exposed by modern distributed version control systems.

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. https://twitter.com/vanl/status/1174759887139672069
Clap, clap! @email@example.com is so Right On here (and in her other recent reaction tweets).
Only by distorting history to view proprietary EULAs as some kind of default background state is it possible to claim that license proliferation problems somehow come from #OpenSource. https://twitter.com/vmbrasseur/status/1174750522210832384

Pre-registration will be used by @email@example.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: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/08989621.2019.1580147
