First of all , the “I” in the post title is not me, it’s Richard Paige,  Professor of Enterprise Systems and (as of May 2015) Deputy Head of Department (Research) in the Department of Computer Science at the University of York. And besides all this, a very opinionated person that recently shared his thoughts on the state of software engineering research after spending plenty of hours this year reviewing around 100 papers for several Software Engineering conferences and journals.

To be clear, I’m just reposting here the tweets he wrote since they are public, I’m sure he won’t mind (though I haven’t asked 🙂 , I’ll do it a posteriori: “ask for forgiveness and not permission”) and I believe that his opinions are spot on and deserved to collected here.

Enter Richard:
