Looking for biologists!
I am not the first to want this: https://github.com/mathjax/MathJax/issues/1143
This is the most amazing thing I've seen in a bit:
This essay got me really interested in David Hume: https://aeon.co/essays/hume-is-the-amiable-modest-generous-philosopher-we-need-today
How should I explore his philosophy further, especially his moral philosophy? Should I read the man himself or secondary sources? I guess Stanford Encyclopedia is one obvious first source. I have some background in philosophy of science but haven't formally studied philosophy.
so 2 days left before my short session class begins and I wanted to ask a question: if you use a laptop/mac or a tablet/ipad, what are your favorite note-taking apps? I've been using OneNote and while I love it for the organization, exporting it is a MESS sometimes. hell, even printing notes can be a hassle sometimes.
I wrote something that does this:
* Change 'address' to 'location', or vice versa
* Change 'journal' to 'journaltitle', or vice versa
* If 'date' is four digits, change it to year (from BibLaTeX to BibTeX)
I'm thinking that I shouldn't touch capitalisation.
bibtexparser includes a function to convert TeX to unicode. Perhaps I should use that for the BibLaTeX direction?
It's a #Python script reading stdin and writing stdout.
Is there a simple, good CLI tool for converting between #BibTeX and #BibLaTeX? The main thing would be journal/journaltitle and location/address fields, and maybe making sure that dashes are right and dealing with unicode. If there isn't, I might make writing one a quick new year project.
This would do the heavy lifting: https://github.com/sciunto-org/python-bibtexparser

I can't think of ten off the top of my head. I would put Deirdre Wilson & Dan Sperber on the list. I heard Deirdre say that they wanted to dedicate 'Relevance: Communication and Cognition'' to Noam Chomsky, Jerry Fodor, and Paul Grice. That sounds right. And Plato, Gottlob Frege, Bertrand Russell, and Saul Kripke should be on the list too.
This looks interesting. Sadly, I didn't find out about it in time to submit something.
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, 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.
