i'm currently at undergraduate level mathematics but i'm looking for resources to strengthen my grip on the subject. I think maths is really fun and I'd like to study it more. Do you guys have any ideas as how i might further my maths skills in my spare time. For example I'd lioe to know proofs. Im thinking of taking Computer Mathematics in University when I finish College in a year. thanks in advance!

A nice new resource for philosophers: The #Philosophy Paperboy | Stay updated on the latest #Papers

So I just released the first version of a new project aiming to make academic articles freely available. I'd love to hear what you think!

Here's the announcement post:

Anyone know where I can get an All Computers Are Broken laptop sticker? I can only find t-shirts.

I was at a party last night where someone told me that I look like Michel Foucault.

I would like to learn more programming.

I took an intro to programming course in a computer science department where I learnt some Python. I really enjoyed it.

Should I just pick a project and dive in? Using a different language? How do I choose?

Anyone have recommendations for a good intro to modern philosophy of science?

Thinking of reading one Oxford VSI a month for 2018, already have the Socialism and Communism titles, what should I order next?

@ipt looks good too.

Now I can write text, insert footnotes and citations, and turn it into a PDF. That's probably all a philosopher ought to want.

Anyone have a good Mac workflow for managing multiple current research projects (pdfs, docs, notes, markdown, code, graphics, opml, snippets, todos/reminders)?

With some help from @ipt I've set up and

This looks like a nice set up for writing: cite keys complete from the bibliography I export from .

I brought back too because I have a few files.

I've installed with a clean config file. So far the only thing I've wanted to add back is UK English spelling for markdown files, and recognising .md as markdown.

I will need to look into adding references before I can write papers with it.

I currently export from Zotero to Biblatex with and insert citations with

Maybe I can streamline that a bit? distinguishes:

* 'Published articles' (1–7)
* 'Book reviews' (8)
* 'Dissertation' (9)

1–3 seem to be a category worth distinguishing from 4–9; at least one where I wouldn't want to mislead about what was in what.

How should I organise the publications section of a CV?

There are at least the following sorts of entry:

1. Anonymous reviewed journal articles
2. Anonymous reviewed journal articles in special issues
3. Anonymous reviewed journal articles in special issues based on conferences
4. Not anonymous reviewed journal articles
5. Conference proceedings
6. Book chapters
7. Working papers
8. Book reviews
9. PhD dissertation

That seems too fine-grained.

I recently chanced to pick up J Murphy's "Location-Aware Services and QR Codes for Libraries;" it's 6 years old now. Anyone out there these days using QR codes in libraries, archives, museums, or academic/outreach work? Have they been useful for you?

I haven't tried to use the system yet. But if it works well, a standardised CV format would save us all a lot of time and energy and is a good idea.
