Another digital rights trial. I might think I may sense if there's a pessimism about literacy, though I really fail to understand how there's any great concern about access. Are there not libraries?

Elsevier has been trying in their own ways to make open access become a trend, and they're a regular publisher. Across all of the web of DSpace repositories internationally, and the University of Toronto's own TSpace repository with its wonderfully well expressed academic metadata framework -- and all the open web beyond that -- there's already a veritable cosmic sea of academic content already openly available. Not to take all the thunder out of a digital rights trial, the revolution is just not going to happen -- surely not any further than as life as itself is might ever be spun with a revolutionary style, as here we all proceed around the sun on this one inhabited planet, alone in all the known cosmos? and then someone tries to make a Revolushin Tribe(TM) out of a statement by Noam Chomsky, to all our naive academia?

To my understanding, we cannot reasonably demand any publishing institutions open up their archives, not for any agenda, as their archives are legally instated. The discussion needs to be lead, at least in part, by the publishers -- and the creators too, the creators' rights as content creators being the first stakeholders without whom, there's nothing more to publish.

The era of a liberal technocrati making technically enabled demands to the world -- it so needs to ramp down. Sure, technology can enable so many things beyond an innate social pessimism.

I'll not support the 1%ers mythology, though I am glad if they enjoy the protections afforded for the 1st Ammendment too — no matter how people make an empathy case out of it — though I can find no disharmony to support the coverage about the actual trial in this digital rights suit.
 
Please share!!!
UPDATE 06/30/2015: The hearing has been postponed and will proceed in October. Thanks to everyone who helped us raise awareness today. "Access to knowledge is a global right."

#C++ REPL?
What is Cling. Cling is an interactive C++ interpreter, built on the top of LLVM and Clang libraries. Its advantages over the standard interpreters are that it has command line prompt and uses just-in-time (JIT) compiler for compilation. Many of the developers (e.g. Mono in their project called ...

MAPHEUS-5 – liftoff inside the Arctic Circle

The DLR mobile rocket base​ MORABA launched the #MAPHEUS-5 high-altitude research rocket at 06:55 CEST on 30 June 2015, carrying four #DLR experiments on board. The 12-metre-high, two-stage rocket took off from the Swedish #Esrange Space Center​ and ascended to an altitude of 253 kilometres – taking only 74 seconds to reach a state of #microgravity lasting over six minutes, which was used to conduct experiments from the fields of material physics and #biology. Plants responded to the absence of Earth's gravity during this period, while 2500 steel balls with a diameter of 1.6 millimetres collided, metal samples were X-rayed and suspended metal balls were melted using a laser. Using a parachute, the rocket section carrying the test systems landed after approximately 15 minutes at about 70 kilometres north of the launch site, where it was recovered by helicopter. Now the data acquired is being analysed and interpreted in the laboratories.

A social-network illusion that makes things appear more popular than they are http://ow.ly/30Ufrh
A trio of researchers at the University of California has uncovered a social-network illusion that might explain why some things become popular in cyberspace while others do not. Kristina Lerman, Xiaoran Yan and Xin-Zeng Wu have written a paper describing the illusion and how it works and have posted ...

KB Moto Review Subaru is a respected name in cars. From Tim O'Neil's professional rally driving school, in New Hampshire, to the highways of Hawaii, Subarus have been trucking professionals and enthusiasts , families and friends, along the American roadways since the introduction of the Subaru 360, in the late 1960's. Today, with new models such as the BRZ and XV Crosstrek, Subaru promises to hold its own in the modern automobile industry. KB Motorsports, having expanded from their original location near Lake of the Ozarks, now brings the Subaru lineup to Springfield, Missouri, along with a broader selection of domestic and import cars. In order to replace an older car that was having some maintenance issues, I bought a used 2008 Subaru at KB, in 2012. It was my first experience in shopping for a new car. It wasn't difficult to find a great looking car, once I found KB's selection - it was almost like "Love at first sight," with the Subaru I found. With all wheel drive and Subaru's pattened SRS system, it hugs the winding highways and byways like nothing I've ever driven before. I wasn't a hard sell, albeit - I'd done some research. I'd heard of Subaru's reputation with the Tim O'Neil school, moreover, and I was happy with the look and the features of the model I was looking at. Lastly, I felt a sense trust for the professional integrity of the dealership and the staff. (Though it had been something of a rough day for me, that made it a nice day again.) Apples and oranges aside, KB took great care to make it a great experience, from the initial test drive to the deal-closing paperwork, even assisting with selection of insurance options. Though I'd showed up late in the day, KB was patient and helpful. Their expert, professional work has made a distinctly positive impression on me, and I'd say that I may be happier with my car, for it. I look forward to getting some mileage out of my Subaru. Thanks, KB!
