Impact factor abandoned by Dutch university in hiring and promotion decisions — Nature
nature.com/articles/d41586-021

A Dutch university says it is formally abandoning the impact factor — a standard measure of scientific success — in all hiring and promotion decisions. By early 2022, every department at Utrecht University in the Netherlands will judge its scholars by other standards, including their commitment to teamwork and their efforts to promote open science, says Paul Boselie, a governance researcher and the project leader for the university’s new Recognition and Rewards scheme. “Impact factors don’t really reflect the quality of an individual researcher or academic,” he says. “We have a strong belief that something has to change, and abandoning the impact factor is one of those changes.”

For the networking people, this may come in handy if you need something mightier than tcpdump(1) on a remote location to have a look at packets.

It's inspired by the well known Wireshark, but for your terminal.

Sometimes when I'm bored, I visit docs.rs/releases and click through the docs of the latest released crates. Discovered some interesting and useful things in the past, and learning from other people's code almost always teaches you something new.

A spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"Greetings, Earthlings, we come in peace. Take us to-"
"Do you have a tractor beam?"
"-your... Pardon?"
"A tractor beam. Or some other way of lifting something huge and heavy?"
"Of course, but-"
"Do you know where the Suez channel is?"

”TikTok is introducing Americans to a question that Europeans have struggled with for 20 years: a lot of your citizens might use an Internet platform created somewhere that doesn’t know or care about your laws or cultural attitudes and won’t turn up to a committee hearing.”

Just to clarify: It still does have bugs (78 excluding enhancement issues), but that hasn't stopped anyone ever from releasing.

Announcing: Version 0.4 of aiocoap, the library. Now with proxy support for the Resource Directory, a preview of Group , and less .beta25-because-it-stil-does-have-bugs version clutter. github.com/chrysn/aiocoap/

That's a new way to find new features: The cryptography module now builds its bindings using . How I found out? aiocoap's CI with broke. Fixed happily :-)

I appreciate GitHub & -Lab's feature for post reactions (so that dozens of "oh yes please fix this"-posts can collapse into "14👍 5 ❤️ "). But what do people commonly understand 👀 ("eyes") to mean when left on a comment?
