ineed.coffee is tracking free

Over the last years, there has been an ever increasing interest in Internet Privacy to counteract the worryingly demand  by Internet companies to track users and their behavior, often for advertising purposes. I joined the movement and, while I do not consider myself as a privacy advocate, I do provide my fair share of recommendations to family and friends. Something that was bugging me for some...

mbpfan moved to linux-on-mac organization

I have just moved mbpfan to the linux-on-mac Github organization. That means that I am formally not the owner of mbpfan anymore. That is fine, though! As explained in issue #194: I started this project back in 2012 as a way to fix some annoyances I was having with GNU/Linux on a MacBook Pro and as a way to refresh my knowledge of C. It turned out I was not the only one annoyed with the situation...

[Explained] Foundations for Open Scholarship Strategy Development

Together with a large group (32) of researchers belonging to all disciplines, we formed a committee to draft a proposal for strategies to develop open scholarship (like open science but broader to include all disciplines) at individual, group, and national level, and short, mid, and long-term. The document was developed as a response to some criticisms to the open science movement that, as a...

How to disclose data for double-blind review and make it archived open data upon acceptance

Openness in science is key to fostering progress via transparency, reproducibility and replicability. While open access and open data are two fundamental pillars in open science, it is open data that builds the core for excellence in evidence-based research. This is why I have striven for years to bring open science practices, including open access and open data, to software engineering research...

[Explained] How do you feel, developer? An explanatory theory of the impact of affects on programming performance

Graziotin, D., Wang, X., & Abrahamsson, P. (2015). How do you feel, developer? An explanatory theory of the impact of affects on programming performance. PeerJ Computer Science, 1, e18. doi:10.7717/peerj-cs.18 Open access. Click the link and read the study. We have established that pre-existing affect (or, one might dare to say, happiness) of software developers is positively correlated with...

Retiring rchiveit and its rchive.it domain

Four years have passed since the launch of rchiveit and its domain rchive.it. For those who did not know, rchiveit is (used to be) a modern frontend to SHERPA/RoMEO, for discovering how and when to self-archive academic articles and make them openly accessible to everybody in the worlds. I developed rchiveit mainly for two reasons: to refresh my JavaScript knowledge (and tryout Bootstrap), and to...

mbpfan v2.0.0 with universal sensor detection, man page, support for clang, and more

This should perhaps be codenamed “nobody-will-believe-I-released-it”. After almost two years of no stable releases, I am proud (and also a bit ashamed) of announcing mbpfan v2.0.0. Download it here Compare all changes here. Major improvements Support for CentOS using new kernel but old sensors path #92 Universal support for sensors path regardless of kernel version #92 Added man page...

My OS X Docker images for LAMP are no longer necessary

I learned recently that Docker for Mac v1.12.0 has finally a working solution for mounted volumes with proper read/write permissions.
So I am happy to announce that my Docker project osx-docker-lamp and its minor sisters osx-docker-mysql and osx-docker-apache-php are no longer necessary. Thank you for the support!
