Some of my colleagues and I have a pretty nifty idea that we’ve submitted to SIGMOD 2009. But I’m not gonna tell you what it is. Because my friends at SIGMOD won’t let me.
Blogs democratize publication and reduce delays and friction in scientific dialog. Right? A small step toward Open Notebook Science. Too bad SIGMOD has moved in the opposite direction with double blind reviewing, bottling up ideas for months at a time. Actually, they’d really prefer I didn’t tell you about other ideas I’m playing with that I might submit next year. Then you might guess who I am! As if my work didn’t give me away.
