EEUU prohíbe publicares artígos científicos de Cuba, Irán, Libia e Sudàn

on 07/03/2004

Como soa.
A nova foi do 24 de febreiro de 2004 e inda duas semanas despois estou tentando encaixar esa nova neste mundo. Ou encaixarme a min nel.
A excusa e que os de facénda din que a publicación destes artigos sería violar o bloqueo, e blablabla.
Revistas coma science e outras declaráronse en contra…. pero non sei ata que punto.

Isto non pasou nen nos tempos da guerra fria.
Pero ben, quen sen eu para dicir nada.
Estiven todo este tempo agardando por unha reacción, da universidade de Santiago, da Complutense, ou de calquer outra europea.

Considerei seriamente, e inda o fago, poder axudar a dar

soporte a tódolos cientificos destes paises que non atopen plataformas para a publicación, pero mentres , preguntome porque son eu e non as universidades, o que pensa nisto.

Un señor chamado Michel Lightner, do IEEE, dixo que faría cumplir as leis do seu país. Ese organismo e o instituto de enxeñería, eléctrica e electrónica. E algo moi importante, a moitos niveis.

Algunha reaccion da comunidade científica vai chegando, pero agardo que esta co tempo sexa maior.

A persoa da ligazón anterior propoñía cousas tales coma:

What can you do?

* Attend receptions and functions at IEEE meetings smoking Cuban cigars.
* Leave little Iranian and Sudanese flags hanging around the conference hotel on tables, in lounge areas, in the toilet, next to the microphone, on your transparencies, in startup screens, and if possible, in the organizer’s suite.
* Play some hot Cuban salsa music at the conference hotel (windows open, volume up).
* For the movers and shakers: propose Havana as the next conference site.
* Give cute names to your methods, as in the “Havana algorithm”, or the “Tripoli formula”, or “the Iranian space”.
* Refuse to referee papers for the IEEE unless they can send you proof of citizenship of the author. Create bureaucratic hell.
* Submit papers under assumed names, pretending to be Iranian, or whatever. The flood will drive them nuts. It’s not illegal to publish under assumed names and nationalities, so create confusion.
* Steal IEEE books at night from the IEEE desks at IEEE conferences, leaving behind a business card with an appropriate message. You have my permission to sign it with my name (Luc Devroye). To be fair, send the books to one of the poor countries on Bush’s hit list.
* If you are Iranian, Sudanese, Libyan or Cuban: we love you, and you are not alone, rest assured. Please submit your work to Canadian and European journals until the governor of Texas is deposed.
