Unist'ot'en Camp on FB:

Thank you for taking this stand with us, for continuing to throw down, and for letting Canada know they cannot force Indigenous people off our lands with their assault rifles and their military force.

We won’t back down.

Thank you for making this your fight too. It’s time to remind Canada that all lands are sacred.

BREAKING Statement from Unist'ot'en Camp 1/n 

Bryan van Norden has an amazing and growing list of suggested readings on what he calls the “less commonly taught philosophies” (at least in N America), including African, Asian, Continental, and more. Great places to get started to diversify readings in courses! bryanvannorden.com/suggestions

Very intriguing post by Martin Lenz on the important details of why asking students to learn how to ask philosophical questions (in addition to answering) is valuable. Via Daily Nous. handlingideas.blog/2020/01/31/

Recurring offer reminder: I'll help / mentor / teach / tutor / troubleshoot with anyone who wants to learn git for basic version control, collaboration, managing personal projects, or for a day job. I'll work to connect people with mentors other than me if they prefer - no need to explain why.

Same for bash, command line tools, and so on.

I want using & contributing to FS/OSS to be easier for way more people.

Boosts appreciated!!

Going to dig into this! An openly licensed, free book on understanding document accessibility, from Ryerson Uni in Canada. pressbooks.library.ryerson.ca/

Looking for relevant research:

Ride sharing/hailing services just got go-ahead to operate in Vancouver (BC, Canada). It's all over the news.

One thing I haven't heard much about: the potential environmental impact. Are there likely to be more cars on the roads/people choosing this over transit or biking? I expect research has been done on this sort of question...anyone know of any?

I'm editing an open book available publicly available on web & also downloadable in PDF & ebook. I have a question about the accessibility of how I'm doing premises and conclusions for philosophical arguments with ordered lists <ol>.
