Some of you know I've started a blog called FOSS Academic (fossacademic.tech). I'm exploring life as an academic who tries to use as much free and open source software as possible. You know, being a lonely humanities Linux user at a university.
I'm writing to solicit questions people might have about being a FOSS Academic. Or maybe to solicit comments on the FOSS Academic Lifestyle Dream. Not that I know all the things, but I'm curious what questions people have about this area, if any.
@twsh I had to read your question twice (and delete my original response)! Never seen 'adiCY' before. FWIW I would guess the same, as in 'A p-adic relation has adicy p.' Makes sense to me, but who knows w/ these things!
Here are some tips I've come up with for academics giving remote presentations.
Feel free to let me know what you'd add to this!
Jupyter, looking for tips and tricks, boosts welcome
@RaoOfPhysics Here is one: Beware of cell dependencies! Spreading your code over many cells is very good for presentation, but dependencies aren't marked or tracked. So, if you try to run a cell w/out running its dependencies first you'll be in trouble. This often creeps up on you when you're trying to flesh something out.
