I have IceCat on my phone because it also seemed like the easy option.
Are there companies out there that develop open source software for governments and public institutions?
I feel like there should be some, as governments typically require some guarantees, support, project managers, etc. I imagine that those companies would be #coops allocating the work to members.
I have two sets of teaching evaluations, with scores on a five-point scale and student comments. How should I present them? Scores and all the comments? Selected positive comments?
One thing that occurs to me is that while I think the scores are good, I don't have access to any comparisons.
I listened to this today: https://hiphination.org/episodes/season-2-episode-4-freedom-and-hostile-design-jan-23rd-2018/
It reminded me of the steps in the Mexico City metro, at Hidalgo if I recall correctly, that are piano keys which play a tune as one walks on them. That was definitely awesome city design, in the sense used in the podcast.
This series has some good philosophers in it: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCURj_t8MSVNkal7OYxu_FgQ
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!
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: https://medium.com/p/announcing-flockademic-academic-led-publishing-6339235c57ba
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 https://github.com/vim-pandoc/vim-markdownfootnotes 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.
I've installed #neovim 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 https://github.com/retorquere/zotero-better-bibtex and insert #pandoc citations with https://github.com/twsh/unite-bibtex
Maybe I can streamline that a bit?
