  3. 108: The Comet by W.E.B. Du Bois – NIGHTLIGHT

    In this dystopian tale, W.E.B. Du Bois explores the color line and its political implications after a catastrophic event. It is a work of fiction reminiscent of the Twilight Zone, almost 20 years before Rod Serling was born.

    Read The Comet on Project Gutenberg.

  9. Science as Amateur Software Development

    Science is one of humanity's greatest inventions. Academia, on the other hand, is not. It is remarkable how successful science has been, given the often chaotic habits of scientists. In contrast to other fields, like say landscaping or software engineering, science as a profession is largely unprofessional—apprentice scientists are taught less about how to work responsibly than about how to earn promotions. This results in ubiquitous and costly errors. Software development has become indispensable to scientific work. I want to playfully ask how it can become even more useful by transferring some aspects of its professionalism, the day-to-day tracking and back-tracking and testing that is especially part of distributed, open-source software development. Science, after all, aspires to be distributed, open-source knowledge development.
