Submission A Big Company censors blog with RFID humour

mma writes: "A Big Company recently decided to censor a blog from doctor dalai. The blog is still available for now in google cache here. Apparently The Big Company didn't like when he mentions that RFID tags would be used for there snippers to shoot him when in position. More info about RFID tags as RSNA here. The blogger is also known for his criticism of products and vendors. So do you also think RFID tags could be use by snippers, or do you think this would be a too easy task ?"

Submission Principles and Practices of Scientific Originology->

mma writes: ""This presentation is a satire of the current obsession with intellectual property, innovation and originality that plagues the field of medical image analysis. The presentation makes the point that most Journals and Conferences focus on Originality and despise Reproducibility and Verification, demonstrating great disrespect for the essential elements of the scientific method. The practice of "peer-review" is offered in most cases as an insufficient substitute for the actual verification of reproducibility. In a nutshell, this presentation intends to brings awareness to the fact that authors of papers are treated by Publishers as if they were writers of Novels instead as reporters of scientific findings. In that confusion, authors are required to be "original" (as if they were writing Novels or Plays) instead of being required to report "reproducible" findings. Such practice obliterates critical thinking and erodes the basic principles of the scientific community.""
