Thank you for your suggestions. Indeed, I see now that my post wasn't clear enough. Though many people interpreted it as an ask for Sci Comms podcasts, which I still appreciate, I intended to ask for podcasts geared towards independent scholars / researchers. 😅

This morning I realized that "inflation" means that there's price increases across the board, so you need to think about factors that increase prices in order to understand it. And until now I'd overly associated the term "inflation" with the concept of there being expansions in the money supply that in turn drove price increases. (That's evidently only one factor that can cause it.)

I figured this out after looking into why the Fed would think that instituting a hiring freeze would help to curb inflation. finance.yahoo.com/news/why-the

I'm giving a short intro to #openscience (very broadly defined) to PhD students this week.

What are the things you wish you had been told as a PhD about how to practice Open Science?

What still confuses you to this day?

Are any of you familiar with that deal with/are for people who have academic/scholarly interests but aren't in academia? Please recommend them if so.

If you see yourself honoring and valuing the things you've done or created in the past, you can feel more confident that you'll be a good steward for the fruits of your present and future efforts.

Programmers, are there any resources that you'd recommend for learning how to understand and navigate documentations? Videos or courses might be especially helpful.

Will you move them to another host? It would stink to lose them.

If you setup the other host before retirement, you could add a link to the new site to the current site that directs people there.

Good point. I think I will reach out to them to let them know that I appreciated their stuff.

I found a podcast episode where the guy discusses his decision to do this, and his reasoning for it is pretty unsatisfying for me. 😂

All right, tomorrow I'm updating my resume and linkedin, Sunday I'm going to look at all the jobs people have sent me, going to get serious about the jorb search. Let me know if you know anybody looking for a statistician/data scientist!

and if any of you know anybody who might want a statistician/data scientist, let me know!

An academic blogger and vlogger that I used to follow seems to have yanked down all the content they'd produced for years, and they seem to have become way more selective with who they share educational resources. :(

It's weird to kinda have a public good taken away, especially when the good seemingly required no significant added cost to continue to provide.

Very nice website. How do you make it? I was extra excited when I saw the TOC button - I love sites with TOCs. (I need to add a way to do them to my site.)

But also, besides adding my own quote, if I may comment on yours... it is surprisingly useful to understand why quantum computing (and quantum technologies) are interesting.

Indeed, working with quantum tools to do logic actually changes logic rules!

"Don't say 'it can't be done', say 'I don't know how to'".

It was probably 10th grade, a science class, and it referred to a particular chemical reaction, but it's usable in a surprisingly wide range of contexts!

Actually, it was in Spanish and to me it was subtly different, since the "yo" is optional so including it is emphasizing that it is oneself in particular that does not know:
"No digas 'no se puede', di 'yo no sé'".

Please share a quote or idea from your lower-ed days that has stuck with you.

It's fun to misinterpret this as that you're annoyed that they earnestly believe in *various* theories, not just one theory. "They don't make ideologues like they used to."
