With the internet, the world can be a community college

is cool, and I'm curious to see if there's such a thing for outside of the sciences.

Are any of you familiar with any groups that support , or scholarly work and conduct among persons outside of ?

One thing I heard in the Democrat debates last night that interested me was one candidate's proposal to provide credits to stay-at-home parents (they said mothers, but...yeah) to compensate/reward them for the labor that (presumably) they provide to the household. This is a fascinating proposal because it's been an issue in #economics that household labor isn't commonly accounted for in most economic models. One of my favorite papers ever is about this.

Working & Reading Habits:

Where do you find yourself at your most productive? Do you prefer to read papers and do writing / busywork in different locations?

Libraries? Coffee Shops? Campus? Town?

I'm interested in hearing how best you all work and learn!

I'm getting to read up on something for work that I've been wanting to read up on anyway 😚

As the #PinePhone ($150 Linux smartphone) development is moving fast, a series of articles might be redundant and confusing for most people. This article, to be dynamically updated as development proceeds, gathers what is known at this stage, and will hopefully be an answer to some of your questions.

Trying a similar request again: can anyone recommend a good journal that covers environmental justice?

Again correct me if I am wrong. Nothing is done during installation, the JIT cache is only created when you run it for the first time. I'm not sure if it would persist.
As I see it it is a technological problem and they might fix it eventually. I hate it when they have JIT compile everything, even Plots.jl.

Julia doesn't have an equivalent pacaking format of Python wheels. So you would end up JIT compiling everything you install. And that can be annoying. This also means that distros won't be able to package Julia packages.

There is some talk about sysimage support, but is not position independent code, from what I read. Tbh, that is out of my league.

How does it feel to use and manage packages in ? Does it feel closer to the experience in or in ?

I wonder how much poor #marketing and #advertising leads to products being higher priced than they'd be if their marketing and advertising efforts were better.

The things I think about when I look at the #Purism website. https://puri.sm

#Librem5 will be dope. The marketing is overly pointed towards privacy-focused people, restricting market awareness and favorable market perceptions. Prices per unit for the first production run will be high but wouldn't be as high if they could produce more units. They'd produce more if they could estimate that more would sell. But they can't/shouldn't given their current, lame marketing.

@mmin Tämä vaikuttaa lupaavalta tavalta kuvata asioiden loogisia suhteita. Varmasti luettavampaa kuin filosofien tyypillinen syntaksi.
