sollten wir mal über unser Forschungssystem sprechen

Es ist gut, dass über eine Verjährungsfrist für Plagiate diskutiert wird. Denn schon lange geht es bei den Plagiatsaffären um etwas anderes als eine wissenschaftliche Inhaltsdiskussion. Sie sind zu einer Waffe geworden, um erfolgreichen Personen Steine in den Weg zu legen, um ihre Glaubwürdigkeit zu diskreditieren. …
The people attending 2019´s Blockchain For Science conference were driven, knowledgeable and full of realism. It was the 2nd International Conference on Blockchain for Science, Research and Knowledge Creation after the 2018's edition. The presented projects were substantial and partially in Alpha and Beta-stage… Meaning they really work and they did not only present a vision. Attendance shifted from free-researchers and free-floating minds towards more institutionalized researchers and scientists. The attendance level was at one-half of last year’s conference. We really stepped into the valley of “getting-ready-to-get-things-done” with Blockchain and Web3 applications in science.
Crypto-economic mechanisms, blockchain technology and cryptographic tokens might allow new ways to foster innovation and to organize the scientific funding processes. They could provide new ways to incentivise idea and result sharing far beyond what the Open Science movement and Web 2.0 for science have archived in the last decades.
Interesting concepts to organize open-source development and other commons are currently investigated in fore-front cryptoeconomy communities. Science as a commons could benefit from those. However, there is currently very little or one sided knowledge about blockchain and cryptoeconomy in the scientific community. …
After a series of meetups and unconferences we felt strong enough to call for the First International conference on Blockchain For Science, Research and Knowledge creation. Luckily, the long planned dates fell together with the Berlin Science week.
The whole conference was in rather an unusual setting — bridging the Kreuzberg / Brooklyn backyard blockchain culture with rather established scientific conference locations … :) All crowned by a graffiti of one of the most famous Berlin street artists — Tobo. Take it with a grain of salt, it is art.
Blockchain is tearing open a wall, and there is a seemingly good future (the islands and sunrise), with a black swan in between. The black swan represents the ‚serendipity‘ of research, the unforeseeability of real innovations — in contrast to the current research funding systems that supports more…
