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.

Now I know what owl legs look like and life can never be the same again.


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

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.

#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.

Generating argumentation maps by writing the logical structure of an argument:

Interesting stuff. This could also be used for digging into arguments and assumptions about .

I just learned about the National Coalition of Independent Scholars. Are any of you here members of it or know people that are members of it?

A couple years ago I saw a visualization of what derivatives in calculus are/mean or how they kinda work, and another visualization regarding how this same thing plays out with the expansion and contraction in size of an object (a square, I think), and ever since I seem to have been able to think in a much more rich and visual way. Recently I've been able to rotate objects in my mind, a thing that I don't recall ever being able to do or really trying to do. :)

The traditional method for forced rhubarb goes back nearly 200 years.

Rhubarb is planted in fields, fertilised well with manure, and left to grow pretty much wild for 2 years. During this time, it'll store a ton of energy in its roots as carbohydrates. Then at the start of Winter, the rhubarb is moved somewhere warm and completely dark.

In the darkness, the plants start to grow vivaciously, converting those carbs into sugars. As a result, it's sweeter and more tender than Summer rhubarb.

I found what appears to be a major data entry error in the Drugs@FDA database

Or rather, about 1400 data entry errors

Academic life, that means conferences. They are an important part of science: Many of my collaboration projects were thought up at a conference or brought into a public form for one. We may (and should) find other ways to present our work and network with potential new colleagues in the future, but for now it means I sit at the airport to fly half around the globe and back to meet other people doing the same, which is clearly not sustainable. What ideas for alternatives are out there?

Econ, social group decision making, inequalities 

It's always fascinating to hear someone utter an idea or set of #ideas that you've had but not heard others talk about. Yesterday, I had an experience like that while listening to the #podcast episode below. The guest and I seem to both want for more #economics #scholars to think in a what-if manner and make real the things that they suspect would provide significant societal benefits. Sort of entrepreneurial scholasticism.

@bthall if i'm not mistaken, this already exists. for example, if you're in a julia shell, you can type


and you get this:
help?> ≥
"≥" can be typed by \ge<tab>
search: ≥

>=(x, y)

Greater-than-or-equals comparison operator. Falls back to y <= x.


julia> 'a' >= 'b'

julia> 7 ≥ 7 ≥ 3

julia> "abc" ≥ "abc"

julia> 5 >= 3
