Re: <nettime> VW


   New open source projects released in github on how to pass software
   tests in a VW way.

   https://github.com/auchenberg/volkswagen

   "If you want your software to be adopted by Americans, good tests
   scores from the CI server are very important. Volkswagen uses a defeat
   device to detect when it's being tested in a CI server and will
   automatically reduce errors to an acceptable level for the tests to
   pass. This will allow you to spend less time worrying about testing and
   more time enjoying the good life as a trustful software developer."
   Haha, there is no hope really
   but great logo
   VW-transformer

          If you carefully read my points here on Nettime, then it shouldn't
          have escaped you that I defended this funding (against Ted) and
          actually consider it a good case of repurposing company profits for
          public research and education.

     No, I didn't say anything like that and wouldn't have. One of my
     favorite hobbyhorses is the problematic state of higher ed in the
     US, which is mostly a byproduct of the privatization of educational
     finance. The implied alternative of that privatization is public
     funding -- but even that will depends, at some point, on private
     economic activity. I don't know enough about the VW / Lower Saxony
     model to say much about it, but it's probably better than the
     dominant model we have in the US.
