According to this data, #philosophy majors make more money through their careers (in whatever, not necessarily as philosophy academics) than other humanities majors: http://dailynous.com/2019/01/03/philosophy-majors-make-money-majors-humanities-field/
A super depressing thing about this chart, though, is that Education is at the very bottom. Really? Because it is *so* important!
Super cool! A list of open access logic textbooks! https://github.com/OpenLogicProject/OpenLogic/wiki/Other-Logic-Textbooks
Because why not do #philosophy late at night?

Hey hey! I am an undergraduate student from Canada studying Philosophy, and eventually I will be completing a minor in Cognitive Science as well. I'm not entirely sure what to say here? I like philosophy of mind, philosophy of Artificial Intelligence, feminist philosophy, and just about every aspect of virtue theory! Just looking for discussion partners concerning anything philosophy/politics/critical race theory/etc. :)
Hey. I'd like to get a little fediverse support group doing for writing more in the next year.
It can be blogs, long posts on here, fiction, non-fiction, thesis, uni work, etc. etc.
But I want us to band together and support and motivate each other.
I'm suggesting #AmWriting (capitalized for screen readers) as it's an already established hashtag, which I don't think would suffer if it was used more.
Still, don't give unsolicited advice, obviously.
I am serving on the program committee for the Creative Commons Global Summit in Lisbon in May 2019. Reading many proposals for the conference right now. Best part is learning about all the really cool open edu, open science, openly licensed creative and other works, and similar projects around the world I had no idea existed!
Proposals now being accepted for the Cascadia Open Education Summit in Vancouver, BC, Canada, April 2019. See here for info & proposal form: https://bccampus.ca/event/cascadia-open-education-summit/
I'm teaching a class on technology ethics from a future perspective next week and want students to discuss real-life cases of tech and ethical questions in small groups. Does anyone have good suggestions for cases, especially beyond obvious ones like Cambridge Analytica?
I’m taking a MOOC from my own university called Reconciliation Through Indigenous Education. I’ve done a couple of recent blog posts on videos we watched.
On Lisa Jackson’s short film Savage: http://blogs.ubc.ca/chendricks/2018/11/07/lisa-jackson-savage/ (film about Indian Residential Schools in Canada)
On Susan D Dion and Thomas King: http://blogs.ubc.ca/chendricks/2018/10/30/not-perfect-strangers-indedu200x/

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
