A Place to Go For Scientific Whistleblowing
You've seen those "Call for papers" notices, from journals or conferences? Over at Synthetic Remarks, there's a call for whistleblowers. Reacting to the recent reports of scientific fraud, Fredrik von Kieseritzky is asking those who want to get the details of such things out safely to contact him. Swedish law is very protective of sources, and he's basically making that jurisdiction available to anyone for whom it would be in a position to help. He also has some sound advice on how to communicate such things (Tor, PGP, TrueCrypt), which are the sorts of tools that, apparently, the modern world is trying to make sure that everyone stays current with whether they felt like doing so or not.
This is a sincere offer, and may well draw some sincere responses. We'll see. . .
