updating CV to apply to electives next year and... no idea what to put in or how to organise it

Haven't posted here in a while, but thought some of you might find my new little oa volume of interest. thedigitalpress.org/failing-gl

I'm the series editor for a series of for Introduction to Philosophy courses, and we now have two books published (out of nine planned)!

Philosophy of Mind: press.rebus.community/intro-to

Ethics: press.rebus.community/intro-to

Today's the anniversary of me graduating from my undergrad. :) Thank you again to everyone here that was supportive to me during that last semester! I hope that you're all doing well.

My Dad, my brother, and I are going out to celebrate my anniversary and that my brother has completed another semester at his community college.

*somewhat embarrassed that he was confused about basic statistics stuff*

This is what happens when I try to learn the fundamentals of things. I can barely see the forest now that I have an idea of trees. :X

Ah. I learned either today or yesterday (it's only now hitting me) that my favorite thinker is dead and died in 2016. Gary Becker.

*searches for upcoming, nearby conferences*

That date looks...funny [it's tomorrow]

@bthall You don't always get what you ask for, but you rarely get what you don't ask for.

Woah, I really hadn't thought of that. That'd be super cool!

Now that I have a little money and am on the outside of academia, it's tempting to become a member of professional/scholarly associations to get access to the journals and magazines they publish. (I'm currently looking at the American Statistical Association amstat.org)

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 😚

@drbjork @mplouffe I dunno, I think that it's mostly that the free solutions currently don't have the market share or name recognition that DB has, so an argument for supporting those platforms fails to appeal to management. Getting the cost to implement support for them to $0 is a big step towards their adoption. Crawl and walk with "we support Dropbox + other things", then run with "we support Dropbox, Nextcloud, and Spideroak"
