GretaThunberg As has officially been moved from Santiago to Madrid I’ll need some help.
It turns out I’ve traveled half around the world, the wrong way:)
Now I need to find a way to cross the Atlantic in November... If anyone could help me find transport I would be so grateful.

random_walker In my experience, for selfish reasons alone, releasing a draft as soon as the paper is ready is absolutely the optimal strategy. Much of my best known work was public for *years* before it was official. Not-yet-accepted work was a big part of my job talk and even my tenure case.

random_walker Often an idea doesn’t work out, and journals don’t accept the paper due to negative results (which is terrible, but that’s a different rant.) So the researcher just buries the draft, leaving others to rediscover the same flawed idea and repeat the work. What a tragic waste!

random_walker If your research is funded by taxpayers, you have a moral duty to make it publicly available in a timely way. Don’t put half-baked work on arXiv, but also don’t sit on a draft for years while it’s trudging through the broken peer review system.

random_walker The reason why ideas don’t get stolen is not that academia is a paragon of virtue. It’s more that someone plagiarizing from arXiv has a high risk of getting caught. Besides, ideas are a dime a dozen and everyone else is too obsessed with their own ideas to pay attention to yours.

random_walker When I ask those paranoid researchers if they’ve ever had an idea stolen, it always turns out to be something that happened to a friend of a friend of a friend, much like the urban legend of waking up in a bathtub full of ice with your kidney harvested.

kathrinpassig Frage aus dem Publikum, wie aktuelle Sprachentwicklung einfließt: "Werden die Systeme mit Rilke, Grimmelshausen, Thomas Mann gespeist?" @samlaeubli: Was im Internet vorhanden ist, wird verwendet. Nennt Projekt Gutenberg (sagt nichts zu Libgen, ich frage später).
