one of the largest and most notorious scholarly publishers corrupting open science in Europe
The president of the EU Parliament Antonio Tajani, who boasted that he convinced the Zuck for a live-streamed hearing, only managed to prove he was a part of Zuck's entourage.
The hearing's process was designed in no MEP's (and by extend, citizen of EU) favor, as it was a round of questions that had to be answered by a juggling performance of the Zuck, condensing all the important points to irrelevancy.
I hope mr Tajani gains many likes on his F***book posts about the successful hearing.
Yesterday, the Zuck strolled through the EU Parliament hearing.
Most of the questions asked were blended into summed replies, with the Zuck providing the familiar stock, confident, apologetic tone, blended with misdirected statistics (e.g. monopoly practices).
If you're still wondering how shadow profiling is implemented and why it's necessary, now you know it's "for the protection of our users".
Save for a few MEP's questions, the process was highlighted as a waste of time.

Fingers crossed it goes smoothly, although I'm itching for some config hacking 🙃
