@ayjay Just for credit-where-credit-is-due purposes, that stingray tweet originated elsewhere: https://twitter.com/Krakenpodcast/status/583901762249216001

Fri Apr 03 20:59:24 +0000 2015

@ayjay Ostensibly original tweets that are in fact unattributed retweets have begun to annoy me greatly.

Replying to @ayjay

If only someone taught about the importance of crediting one’s sources in college writing courses.

Replying to @ayjay

Well, sure, and everybody pays that one guy to write their papers, so it must be okay.

Fri Apr 03 21:06:13 +0000 2015

I have seen no fewer than five RT'd versions of that baby stingray tweet, all from different apparent originating accounts.

Sat Apr 04 16:41:39 +0000 2015

That form of unattributed copying would be considered plagiarism in school or in journalism. So why would it be it okay on Twitter?

Sat Apr 04 16:43:09 +0000 2015

Passing someone else's words or ideas off as your own is intellectually dishonest and lazy. In whatever medium. #grrrr

Replying to @gilmani

You know, I think it’s one thing to use a meme as an illustration of a point you’re making, and another to copy an entire tweet.

I just had a very intense dream \(yes during an afternoon nap it’s Saturday shut up that’s not the point\).

Sat Apr 04 19:22:15 +0000 2015

Some friends of mine were hanging out with Tana French, and I was super excited because I thought they’d introduce me.

Sat Apr 04 19:22:21 +0000 2015

Instead, they pretended not to know me and just walked by as quickly as they could.

Sat Apr 04 19:22:24 +0000 2015

I am old enough that I would really love it if my dreams were a little less like junior high, thanks.

I am today at the University of Duisburg-Essen for the Global Young Faculty conference on Open Knowledge in Digital Universities. #gyf3ok

Mon Apr 27 11:17:14 +0000 2015

Speaking of the digital university, I am once again reminded that Eduroam is the greatest thing since sliced bread. #gyf3ok

Introduction to the Global Young Faculty program by Dr. Dagmar Eberle, deputy director of the Mercator Research Center Ruhr. #gyf3ok

Mon Apr 27 11:23:08 +0000 2015

Today’s conference is the final program of the GYF cohort focused on the potentials of digital media in the academic world. #gyf3ok

Mon Apr 27 11:24:06 +0000 2015

Now, an introduction to that cohort by Prof. Dr. Eva Wilden and Dr. Thomas Ernst: how they came to work together & their objectives. #gyf3ok

The possibilities of digital media: Dr. Markus Neuschäfer of OKFN, unable to come to Essen, joins us via Skype. #gyf3ok

Mon Apr 27 11:46:13 +0000 2015

Neuschäfer’s presentation is entitled “Rewiring the Ivory Tower: Digital Universities and the Evolution of Optimal Science.” #gyf3ok

Mon Apr 27 11:47:05 +0000 2015

Begins w Nabokov: “The ‘ivory tower’ cannot be suffered unless it is transformed into a lighthouse or a broadcasting station” #gyf3ok

Mon Apr 27 11:48:33 +0000 2015

Neuschäfer: new technologies have potential to decrease control of knowledge but still subject to old habits \(IP laws, anxieties\) #gyf3ok

Mon Apr 27 11:52:12 +0000 2015

Neuschäfer quotes Paul A. David: “Open science norms and institutions are a social innovation whose workings + #gyf3ok
