@douginamug hi :)
The French government switched to Matrix, the German government evaluates free, open and federated messaging solutions, Nextcloud Talk became a great Slack replacement, public authorities in Germany consider a mass exodus from Twitter & Co after EuGH ruling, next stop Mastodon... Seems like we have both, the (political) momentum and the technology to make 2020 a great year for the free & open internet!

Hey all, quick question: Are there any really good insightful videos/lectures/articles on open source business models out there? I've been dwelling over the statement that the service/support-based model is not sustainable for a few weeks and all the expert opinions I heard so far just resolve to shifting away from open source licensing in some form or another.

I mostly use a mix of Google Scholar (for searching), MathSciNet (for more targeted searches, reviews, and high-quality bibtex), and DBLP (for bibtex of CS papers not in MathSciNet) but maybe this will convince me to add ZB into the mix.
@o0karen0o Thank you for bringing this up. I think the increasing number of services offered only to people who agree to install random apps is a big issue. I recently visited a city where a lot of people are using rented electric scooters (and it could have been helpful to use one for me too), but all these services seem to require apps, although just a web browser (or even sms, like with trams in some countries) should have been perfectly fine.
At #swib19, Julia Beck is presenting lobid as her "favourite API for GND". We are happy about this shout-out!
At the #swib19 Cocoda workshop, @nichtich recommends to set up a OpenRefine Reconciliation Endpoint for your vocabularies because it then can be used both with @coli_conc and with @OpenRefine. This shows, why reconciliation standards make sense (see https://www.w3.org/community/reconciliation/).
V pleased to say this includes OpenRefine - so looking forward to working on this. We're going to be working to attract new contributors by improving documentation, and implementing a new data model to improve the scalability, transparency, and reproducibility of OR workflows.
Researchers need the best tools to advance their work in science and medicine. We’re proud to fund 40+ #opensource software…
#OpenRefine got funding from CZI for 2020 and I'll be working with @ostephens to do a big overhaul to the project.
Announcing a programme of @email@example.com Library Carpentry workshops at @EdinburghUni@twitter.com, hosted in collaboration with @firstname.lastname@example.org, @CRC_EdUni@twitter.com, & @email@example.com.
