Q: London travel advice 

What should I read to understand more about Chinese history and politics?

Request for help (librarians especially!!); Boosts++ 

The developer for the Library Extension project just asked me which screen readers would be best to test the extension with so he can add functionality, but I don't have enough background knowledge of them (or programming) to have that answer. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Do you have some thoughts on what :OpenAccess: to knowledge means? The Wikimedia Foundation is seeking your short films, visual art, poetry, short fiction, & creative essays for an anthology (also there's a prize). Deadline: 30 April 2019

Does anyone have some signposts to resources on on Finitism (as in, philosophy of maths) and some discussion of it (besides SEP pages / Parsons)?

A graduate teaching assistant for my course was voted an award by our students. I can't claim any credit but it suggests that they had a good time.

I really enjoyed teaching Philosophy of Language this term. Teaching Probability and Knowledge in Clinical Medicine was a big challenge but I think it went fine. Now, I can think about my own work for a bit.

I need help with quantitative research “decoding.” My background is *not* psych but my masters degree (masters of Family Therapy) requires the current research methods course.

I’m watching some YouTube vids on concepts such as Kappa coefficients but does anyone have other sources for a crash course? I took stats in undergrad... but that was over 20 years ago.

Thanks, friends -

I think the area of philosophy that I know nothing about but would most like to is aesthetics.

Bibliography management 

I'm looking for literature (articles, blog posts, books) that covers "succession planning" for IT/sysadmin in activist groups. Like, for a volunteer group, what happens if your IT person just leaves? What are best practices so that the group isn't locked out of their web hosting etc (simply through lack of information rather than malice on the previous IT person's fault)
