Let's say I want a self-hosted collaboration and communication suite (calendar + document editing + file sharing + chat).

Should I go for Nextcloud, Sandstorm or something else?

Help and boosts very appreciated.
Thanks!

I ask this question once a year: Does anyone have recommendations for research journaling apps? I am still waiting for a basic diary application with latex and markdown support.

I am not the first to want this: github.com/mathjax/MathJax/iss

Pandoc without MathJax supports them as〚 and 〛. When I add the --mathjax flag they disappear.

Is there an easy way to get MathJax to give me \llbracket and \rrbracket?

First day back in the office. teaching starts next week. This afternoon I need to write a lecture about Frege's philosophy of language.

This is the most amazing thing I've seen in a bit:
ireneposch.net/the-embroidered

A good start to the year: the centre where I did my PhD is having a 20th anniversary conference to which all former PhDs and postdocs are invited. I haven't been back since my viva five years ago.

This essay got me really interested in David Hume: aeon.co/essays/hume-is-the-ami

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.

How do folks take reading notes? My current method of lots of notations and marginalia seems like it might not be up to snuff anymore...

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 script reading stdin and writing stdout.

Is there a simple, good CLI tool for converting between and ? 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: github.com/sciunto-org/python-

Yo scholars

Does anyone know of any books/readings/articles similar to Schlosser's Command and Control? Or human factors, really...

I cleared it. Three papers under review. Another out for comments. Three reviews completed. Syllabus for Philosophy of Language next semester drafted, and reading done.

In grad school I learnt a lot from Herman Cappelen, François Recanati, Robyn Carston, and Jeffrey C. King.

I first got in to philosophy of language in Adèle Mercier's class.

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.

## "Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

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 @socrates@scholar.social 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.
