Stupid Shit

This page is dedicated to studying proprietary information and enclosure of the commons, such as:

  1. Prorprietary research - that discloses models but does not provide source code for replicating the work. As such, this is bad science, as it is not replicable and is 'see but don't touch' only. Corrections are welcome - if you see that source code or enabling knowhow is revealed, and the paper is a case of poor communication - please let us know. As a general rule, when source code is not disclosed in publications, we assume that the source code is proprietary - even though it may come from public institutions.

The intent of this page is to provide case studies and gain insights on how collaboration is missing throughout human institutions - and how to address these gaps as we create the open source economy.
