I am a librarian. I help college students find stuff. @oajoe Opinions my own. I got my sense of humor from my Dad. Blame him.
RT @chealsye: …when some don't care about proper definitions for Open Access, repositories, etc. "Same difference!" No, really, not the same.
RT @chealsye: It makes me so happy when researchers and faculty are so passionate about Open Access and advocate for it. But as a librarian, it kills me…

I am seeing protest tweets interspersed with Peter Pan tweets. But, are there any tweets with protest marches about how awful Peter Pan is?

RT @protohedgehog: New report on the culture of scientific research in the UK. Probably don't need to say, but this is critical reading http://nuffieldbioethics.org/wp-cont...
RT @protohedgehog: On #scishare: It's clever. It's logical from a business perspective. It's bad for science. It's bad for the public. http://blogs.egu.eu/network...

This is a new one. How much does one tip your refuse/garbage/trash and recycling company pick up person?
My mom leaves 50 bucks every year at xmas. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Wow on the 50! My sister gets them a case of beer, lotto tickets, and a tray of homemade cookies. - Janet from FFHound!
But what kind of beer? - Joe
Crap. I should do this. How does one get it to them? - laura x from iPhone
I might be worried they would crack it open during their shift. At 7am when they pickup from my house. - Joe
wait, this is a thing? - Big Joe Silence
I went with a much cheaper service this year, and they put a card in the door. They do good service, so I am inclined, since it is a messy job. I do appreciate them. - Joe
For places where it is city service, maybe not, since they might get holiday bonuses from the city. - Joe
Is this a thing? - Eric - ill subliminal from iPhone
it's a city service where i live. outside contractors since the 80s. lumped in with water and sewer billing. - Big Joe Silence
Mom always did it for the garbage crew and the postman. As a personal thank you for their service. She taped it to the cans and/or mailbox in the morning. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
It's a contracted/city/non-optional system here (trash, recycling and composting pickup), and I honestly can't imagine tipping for it. Also, taping something to the bins would just mean it would end up in the trash/recycling along with everything else, since the workers are sitting in the truck controlling the pickup arms. - Walt Crawford

3/2 @rmounce @mbeisen I know that this perpetuates the "who you know that is privileged to have that info" problem.
2/2 @rmounce @mbeisen says who has access to which journals/years. People could find friends willing to provide the links. #BeggarAccess
.@rmounce @mbeisen NPG doesn't want index of papers/links--but maybe we could create an index of people (in GDocs) that... #BeggarAccess 1/2
OMG, I have not looked at Ello in a week or two. Oh well.
I am tired.
Inconceivable!

I almost bought that book over the weekend but ended up simply telling my mom that it would be cool if someone got it for me for Christmas. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
.@wilbanks @DElibrarian It is about protecting their income, their status, their privilege, and their power.
RT @wilbanks: @OAJoe @DElibrarian i think it’s probably a genuine attempt to change...as long as that change is as comfortable as possible.
RT @wilbanks: @OAJoe @DElibrarian but they are not strategies that really change the system the way that OA would change it. they protect the status quo.
RT @wilbanks: @DElibrarian @OAJoe for me it is HINARI and AGORA that are themselves better rhetorical devices than serious strategies for the devworld.
RT @wilbanks: @DElibrarian @OAJoe HINARI/AGORA provide access to a tiny percentage of those who have phones plenty capable of accessing papers.
