We are happy to launch *depositar* today at San Francisco at the ECAI Workshop in conjunction with PNC 2018 Annual Conference. This is a research data repository built on top of CKAN but with many new features.

Just a straw poll of interest here.

If we did a W3C workshop on federation and ActivityPub, would you want to attend? Is it something you'd be willing to travel for?

『羅文嘉說,今天中執會的決議,並不是有誰提案處理,而是5人協調小組報告案之後,中央黨部組織部提出建議,把總統初選民調時間與立委初選時間對調;原本是總統初選完成就進行立委初選,現在顛倒,立委初選完成再進行總統初選,幕僚單位認為這比較符合民調作業,因為黨中央不可能同時進行兩者,此外,這樣比較維持原有精神「不停止初選機制、不改變流程」。』

這個黨還算有些智慧啦!

The work is titled "Good Wish from Big Fish". The artist is Shih-Yi Yang.

藝術品名為「大魚的祝福」,藝術家是楊士毅。

『藝術家楊士毅,是一位擁有攝影師、導演、剪紙人等多重職業身分的藝術家。這次以原創故事「大魚的祝福」來說故事給大家聽,並將故事主角-鯨魚轉化為長 23 公尺、寬 10 公尺、高 8 公尺的大型藝術作品。現場楊士毅除了向眾人闡述創作的發想並說明製作故事鯨魚造型上半部以 3,714 支不銹鋼管焊接構成,整個量體沒有用到一根螺絲;鯨魚內部臺灣意象則以 634 支不銹鋼管焊接構成,並鑲嵌 448 片彩色釉燒玻璃,形成一個象徵包容而豐富多彩的島嶼圖形,重達 20 幾噸的作品下半部巧妙以鯨魚腹部線條當整個作品重量的支撐,形成不落柱結構。』

... 若身分證若以晶片卡方式製發,且可兼作數位憑證提供遠端簽證的功能,這類型式的身分證或將有轉為其他用途的可能(目前內政部戶政司的規劃就將整合自然人憑證)。便利商店的多功能自助機台加設晶片卡讀卡機之後,便可進行各種記名交易,例如實名制的交通票卷購買。內政部戶政司會將面對許多這類需求,要求開放晶片卡上的介接與簽證功能。這樣的發展,恐非戶政司甚或內政部能夠周詳考慮。若沒有先進行小規模的實作、檢驗與評估,就決定以晶片卡的方式全面換發身分證,就只能說是冒進了。另一方面,自然人憑證也不是內政部才能發。台灣反而應該鼓勵民間發展自然人憑證事業,活絡數位經濟的生態圈。台灣政府也該有明確的態度,就線上資訊服務涉及國民身分識別的現況與前景,規劃發展其將採用的技術、標準、與程式介面,並開放相關文件與程式原始碼。

摘要:

嚴密的戶籍制度、需要隨身攜帶的身分證、以及在經濟與社會生活中不可或缺的身分證統一編號,這是台灣的日常。但這些是逐步建置交織而來的,現在也很難離我們而去。技術的選擇使用,有所謂「路徑依存」(path dependency)的問題,後面的發展遵循之前的選擇,很難走回頭路,或是中途更改。... 台灣若建立了晶片身分證的制度,之後不可能再回頭,此時眾人就應該思慮辯證,身分證晶片卡化的必要性究竟何在?制度的建置發展,還常有「任務偏移」(mission creep)的情形。例如,用於高速公路里程計費的 eTag 感應貼紙,既然已經裝在大多數車輛,不如也就用在停車場的出入管制與收費,不是嗎?眾人常難以抗拒這樣的提議與其帶來的便利。不過,一旦如此全面施行,個人車輛的行蹤(例如常在居家和工作地點附近停車的狀況),也一同揭露給停車場的經營者,而且可以儲存串連。停車場經營者跟高速公路計程收費的經營者,還可能是同一企業呢!經由這類過程,個人的各種行蹤資料也就漸次逸出,而可被有心的企業匯集使用。

聞時事有感,貼舊文一篇。
