At the end of 2021 I started my to-don’t list, it is a list of things that you are not going to do because you already have too much on the go. Mine looks like this:
Starting my 2022 to-don't list:— Yanina Bellini Saibene (@yabellini) December 15, 2021
- I will not be chair or organizer of JAIIO & CAI
- I will not direct/co-direct any undergraduate or graduate thesis
- I will not sign any new R&D cooperation agreements
- I will not join any new community
- I will not eat so much wheat flour
Let’s see how thing are going:
I will not be chair or organizer of JAIIO (Argentine Conference on Informatics and Operations Research) & CAI (AgroInformatics Congress): I was chair of the 49 and 50 JAIIO (2020 and 2021) and CAI’s chair from 2016 until 2021. The CAI organizers invited me to review some papers, which I gladly accepted. So we can say that I have fulfilled this commitment.
I will not direct/co-direct any undergraduate or graduate thesis: Accomplished. I really liked this job when I was at INTA, but now I’m able to help people from another role.
I will not sign any new R&D cooperation agreements: Accomplished. I was doing this as an INTA employee and since I am on unpaid leave, I have not signed any new cooperation agreements and we have successfully completed the ones I had active.
I will not join any new community: I have failed miserably. This year in addition to becoming rOpenSci’s Community Manager (I was already part of the community), I joined OpenHeroines, NumFocus (which is the fiscal sponsor of rOpenSci), CSVConf, and I’m now a GitHub Star.
I will not eat so much wheat flour: another failure, although I do eat less wheat flour than before, but still.
So, we can say 3 of 5 until now. Not so bad?
