President Trump: The Inauguration (new Twilight episode)
2017-01-20, 4pm, BBC One/ STV
TV review by Damien Love in http://heraldscotland.com

“After a long absence, The Twilight Zone returns with one of the most ambitious, expensive and controversial productions in broadcast history. Sci-fi writers have dabbled often with alternative history stories – among the most common is the “What If The Nazis Had Won The Second World War” setting – but this huge interactive virtual reality project, which will unfold on TV, in the press, and on Twitter over the next four years, sets out to build an ongoing alternative present. The story begins in a nightmarish version of 2017 in which huge sections of the US electorate have somehow been duped into voting to make Donald Trump president. It sounds far-fetched, and it is, but as it goes on it becomes more and more chillingly plausible. Today’s feature-length opener concentrates on the gaudy inauguration of President Trump, and the stirrings of protest and despair surrounding the ceremony, while pundits speculate gravely on what lies ahead. It’s a flawed piece, but a disturbing glimpse of the horrors we could stumble into, if we’re not careful.”

To be on the safe side (I'm not distributing fake news): This a satire, and a hilarious (or horrible?) one at that! Picked up and made popular on twitter.

I couldn't agree more…
Our increasing addiction to the constant stimulus of updates, likes and posts is damaging our ability to concentrate deeply and focus on work that matters.

Open Access – more than you ever wanted to know about it
The title above sounds derogative, but it's actually praise: This great articale really goes deep into OA, its history, and the difficulties it's facing. Anyway, I stick to not reviewing for Elsevier any more.

Open Access for viewing
Scientific publishers Springer and Nature have fused recently. The results are absurd & ridiculous new author disclaimer notes (another topic) and an interesting "content sharing" model. An example here
http://rdcu.be/mU8j
The above link gives you full free reading access to the paper. While you cannot download it, it's a major boon IMHO, even if not really Open Access. [Probably major data harvesting behind it too.] Here
http://authors.springernature.com/share
you can enter the DOI of your paper (if published by Springer-Nature), and if you're lucky get such a sharing link. Currently the choice appears limited, possibly they'll extend this to earlier publications. So far I've found only 3 of my papers from this year there.

Sprinter-Nature write “There are no restrictions on the number of people you may share this link with, how many times they can view the linked article or where you can post the link online.” Wow, nice!

Bodo Wartke – Nicht in meinem Namen

Großartiges Lied von Bodo, passt in diese Zeit. Ich find ihn eh schon seit Jahrzehnten toll, hab ihn auch mal ausführlich getroffen (wir fuhren beide zum Snowboarden), und hier ist er wieder mal phantastisch.
