    1. Ebooks Are an Abomination: If you hate them, it’s not your fault. by Ian Bogost in The Atlantic https://www.theatlantic.com/books/archive/2021/09/why-are-ebooks-so-terrible/620068/

      Ian Bogost has a nice look at the UI affordances and areas for growth in the e-reading space.

    2. Skimming through pages, the foremost feature of the codex, remains impossible in digital books.

      This is related to an idea that Tom Critchlow was trying to get at a bit the other day. It would definitely be interesting in this sort of setting.

      Has anyone built a generalizable text zoom JavaScript library that let's you progressively summarize an article as you zoom in and out?<br><br>(Why yes I am procrastinating my to-do list. You?)

    3. So do all manner of other peculiarities of form, including notations of editions on the verso (the flip side) of the full title page and the running headers all throughout that rename the book you are already reading.

      I do dislike the running headers of digital copies of books as most annotation tools want to capture those headers in the annotation.

      It would be nice if they were marked up in an Aria-like method so that annotation software would semantically know to ignore them.

    4. The iPad’s larger screen also scales down PDF pages to fit, making the results smaller than they would be in print. It also displays simulated print margins inside the bezel margin of the device itself, a kind of mise en abyme that still can’t actually be used for the things margins are used for, such as notes or dog-ears.

      It would be quite nice if a digital reader would allow actual writing in the margins, or even overlaying the text itself and then allowing the looking at the two separately.

      I do quite like the infinite annotation space that Hypothes.is gives me on a laptop. I wish there were UI for it on a Kindle in a more usable and forgiving way. The digital keyboard on Kindle Paperwhite is miserable. I've noticed that I generally prefer reading and annotating on desktop in a browser now for general ease-of-use.

      Also, I don't see enough use of mise en abyme. This is a good one.

      In Western art history, mise en abyme (French pronunciation: ​[miz ɑ̃n‿abim]; also mise en abîme) is a formal technique of placing a copy of an image within itself, often in a way that suggests an infinitely recurring sequence. In film theory and literary theory, it refers to the technique of inserting a story within a story. The term is derived from heraldry and literally means "placed into abyss". It was first appropriated for modern criticism by the French author André Gide.

    1. . . . the Nuer have no expression equivalent to "time" in our language, and they cannot, therefore, as we can, speak of time as though it were something actual, which passes, can be wasted, can be saved, and so forth. I do not think that they ever experience the same feeling of fighting against time or of having to co-ordinate activities with an abstract passage of time because their points of reference are mainly the activities themselves, which are generally of a leisurely character. Events follow a logical order, but they are not controlled by an abstract system, there being no autonomous points of reference to which activities have to conform with precision. Nuer are fortunate. 129 O

    1. Conclusions: Chronic vitamin E administration improves the ratio of cardiac sympathetic to parasympathetic tone in patients with type 2 diabetes. Such an effect might be mediated by a decline in oxidative stress.

      This is plausibly the reason why antioxidants enhance sleep. Though it is likely that there are other mechanisms as well, such as reduced neuroinflammation. Come to think of it, given that ME/CFS appears to be caused by high sympathetic tone during sleep, antioxidants are the perfect treatment. Antioxidants are proven in placebo-controlled trials to help with sleep in healthy subjects and insomniacs alike. I doubt that antioxidants can cure ME/CFS, but I'm confident they will help.

      Some interesting resources here, though none currently suit workflows I'm keen to support yet. There is a reference to FuturePress' epub.js which could be intriguing, though even here, I'm more likely to stick with Hypothes.is for annotating and note taking to keep context.

    1. Has anyone read The Memory Arts in Renaissance England 16?

      @Josh I'd picked up a copy of this recently and have started into it. The opening is a quick overview of some general history, background, and general techniques.

      The subtitle is solidly accurate of the majority of the book: "A Critical Anthology". The bulk of the book are either translations or excerpts of pieces of memory treatises in English throughout the Renaissance. They also include some history of the texts, their writers, and some analysis of the pieces.

      Some of us have been digging up old editions of books and struggling with reading and creating context. These authors have done yeoman's work on a lot of this and collected some of the more interesting historical works on the memory arts and added lots of context, at least for works in English (and focused on England) during the Renaissance. It's a great text for those interested in the history as well as more readable versions of some of the (often incomprehensible) middle/late English. They also have some analysis often conflicting with statements made by Frances Yates about some of the more subtle points which her broad history didn't cover in detail.

      Given it's anthology nature, its a nice volume to pick up and read self-contained portions of at leisure based on one's interest. It isn't however comprehensive, so, for example, they've got "translated portions" of part of Peter of Ravenna's The Phoenix, but not all of it, though they do outline the parts which they skip over. (Cross reference https://forum.artofmemory.com/t/peter-of-ravenna/27737.) Other segments are only a page or so long and may contain tangential passages or even poems about the art to better situate it for scholars/students looking at it historically.

      I've corresponded a bit with Bill Engel, one of the authors who has been wonderfully helpful. He said he's got another related book Memory and Morality in Renaissance England (Cambridge) coming out later this summer as well as a few other related books and articles thereafter. Some are mentioned on his site: https://www.williamengel.org/.

    1. Last month, Amazon announced what could be a landmark in electronic marginalia: public note sharing for the Kindle

      A decade on, I'm sorry to say that it has some useful features, but doesn't have a very usable UI or any worthwhile discovery. Lack of broad use and support prevents it from being as useful as it might.

      I can't really follow the annotations of anyone I might like to and finding any at all can be a bear.

    2. This gave me an epiphany — a grand vision of the future of social reading. I imagined a stack of transparent, margin-size plastic strips containing all of my notes from “Infinite Jest.” These, I thought, could be passed out to my friends, who would paste them into their own copies of the book and then, in turn, give me their marginalia strips, which I would paste into my copy, and we’d all have a big virtual orgy of never-ending literary communion.It was a hopelessly clunky idea: a vision right out of a Library Science seminar circa 1949.

      Goofy as this physical version sounds, I could imagine a digital overlay version that could go along with digital books in much the same way that Google Maps has digital overlays.

      The problem lies with registration and location of words to do the overlay properly. The UI would also be a major bear.

      Hypothes.is has really done a spectacular job in their version, the only issue is that it requires doing it all in a browser and isn't easily usable in any e-readers.

    3. As John Dickerson recently put it on Slate, describing his attempt to annotate books on an iPad: “It’s like eating candy through a wrapper.”

      [[similies]]

    1. The more pieces of information we can “access” and the faster we can extract their gist, the more productive we become as thinkers.

      But are Google's tools really making us more productive thinkers? One might argue that it's attempting to do all the work for us and take out the process of thought all together. We're just rats in a maze hitting a bar to get the food pellet.

      What if the end is a picture of us as the people on the space ship at the end of WALL-E? What if it's keeping us from thinking?

      What if it's making us more shallow thinkers rather than deep thinkers?

    1. Nowadays when I want technical support I will email my web host and give them all the necessary information, i.e. what I have tried to do to resolve, what I think the problem is etc and usually it is fixed first time within a few hours. If I need urgent assistance I will ring them but 99% of the time email is sufficient and less stressful, rarely do I need to send a second email.
    2. If you email helpdesk (us specifically), if you use appropriate technical detail you will probably get someone who knows what they're doing, and will greatly appreciate it. If you call, you will get me only. I will ask you lots of questions, with awkward pauses in between while I write my notes, and at the end of it I probably won't be able to help you. Technical detail is still welcome, but there are some questions I will ask you anyway even if they sound useless to you
    3. Calling over e-mailing has a number of advantages, you're able to empathize with the person and they're able to hear how comfortable you are with the topic over the phone.
    1. No records were ever located to support The RIBA team member’s conclusion that the Shoe Fly poles would most likely fail due to heavy rain. According to the Manager in Transmission Asset Management, The RIBA team member was an expert on the RIBA process who was assigned to assist “the engineer walk through the process.” Based upon the records the Manager in Transmission Asset Management identified the engineer as the engineer most familiar with the overall project and assigned to do the RIBA scoring for the project. According to an undated PG&E Org Chart, the engineer assigned to score the project was a Senior Engineer assigned to Transmission Asset Development and reported directly to the Manager in Transmission Asset Management. According to the notes on the scoring sheet, as interpreted by the Manager of Transmission Asset Development, “the concern here is the note says that the structures would go down during rainy and wet storm. And what’s not shown here is that the wildfire is not likely, because on the wet ground not likely to have wildfire.” No records in support of Senior Engineer’s conclusion were ever located. On the other hand, the TL Relocate 10 Towers project scored 581. According to the scoring sheet, the Senior Engineer was also the engineer assigned to score this project. Despite the fact that by 2014 the scope of the project was limited to the replacement of insulators so that money spent on the project prior to cancellation could be charged to the Capital Budget, the project scored 18 points out of 10,000 possible points for safety110. Despite the fact that the project involves the same Caribou-Palermo line the Reliability Risk Score is 562. 434 of those points are justified because “WRDI is possible contact with public leading or to other facilities causing potential injuries to few employees” according to the notes on the scoring sheet. The 2014 RIBA scoring is used to highlight the subjective nature of the comparative risk analysis. Because they are subjective the risk scores are easily manipulated. PG&E was highly motivated to complete the TL Relocate 10 Towers project in order to be able to charge the budget overruns, money already spent, to the capital budget. By 2014 the Replace 5 Damaged Towers project was about future spending. The best example of the manipulation is the WRDI justifications. One of the oft-stated justifications for the TL Relocate 10 Towers Project was the fact that the ten towers were located in a remote, inaccessible location. The towers were so inaccessible that PG&E had to use helicopters to fly personnel to the towers. Also, there was no evidence that any of the ten towers was on the verge of collapse according to the 2009 email from the manager who cancelled the project in 2009. On the other hand, the Shoe Fly was built on Camp Creek Road and any, or all of those poles, could reasonably be expected to fall down within a year. Another example of manipulation of facts in the 2014 RIBA was the RIBA team member’sconclusion, apparently based upon the Senior Engineer’s scoring note that “structures would go down only if it is rainy and wet”; and restated several times by the Manager in Transmission Asset Management that the wood Shoe Fly poles would probably only collapse during heavy rain

      Evidence of the subtle way that profit-incentives in a complex environment create risk ...

      Can this be addressed by incentives or only by culture? By culture only i think.

    1. These all look interesting, but my primary worry is the ability to do cross-platform note taking with them. Perhaps worth delving into some more custom reviews, but the price points of these compared to my laptop versus the functionality and flexibility needs to improve greatly.

    1. La tecnología digital supone ya uno de los cambios más radicales de nuestro tiempo,

      Esta idea de lo inevitable que carcteriza el discurso de las tecnologías en general, se supone que responde a un cambio cultural de la época y que toca a todas las personas, incluyendo a los niños; sin embargo tapa otras motivaciones, otras urgencias para esta innovación tecnológica que es bastante evidente; se relaciona con los planes de negocios y económicos, los planes de las empresas tecnológicas para las cuales la idea de este cambio inevitable, desde los cuales se presentan sus propuestas digitales, es funcional a sus estrategias de mercado. las empresas necesitan que se crea que se tiene que entrar en esos escenarios de cambios y de innovación para poder vender los productos que sacan al mercado.

    2. Aunque la mayoría de los niños que están en línea lo ven como una experiencia positiva,

      La idea de una era digital se ha naturalizado, por tanto los niños acceden a su uso e interactúan en las redes con desconocimiento frente a los riesgos que estos medios pueden contener.

    3. nternet es todas estas cosas, que reflejan y amplifican lo mejor y lo peor de la naturaleza humana. Es una herramienta que siempre se usará para hacer el bien y para hacer el mal. Nuestra labor consiste en mitigar los daños y ampliar las oportunidades que la tecnología digital hace posible.

      Preparar a los niños para enfrentar los nuevos tiempos, no es prepararlos para adaptarse sino para resistir la constante violencia a la que el mundo globalizado con su economía y sus relaciones de consumo somenten a las personas ( en especial a la infancia) en esta era (tecnológica). Demanda de la escuela y nosotros los maestros, la construcción de un espacio ético desde el cual podamos construir junto con los niños una mirada crítica sobre esas reaciones que se están dando y buscar formas de deconstrucción, de desingenuación de esas mismas relaciones tan perjudiciales, tan nocivas.

    1. URI::MailTo::EMAIL_REGEXP

      First time I've seen someone create a validator by simply matching against URI::MailTo::EMAIL_REGEXP from std lib. More often you see people copying and pasting some really long regex that they don't understand and is probably not loose enough. It's much better, though, to simply reuse a standard one from a library — by reference, rather than copying and pasting!!

    1. Há uma anorexia emocional que as pessoas só pautam as próprias vidas na medida em que olham a vida do outro. O esvaziamento da vida pode se dar pelo uso e abuso da rede social
    2. Hoje temos muito disso, porque estamos muito distraídos com as pautas morais e ficamos presos aos julgamentos e não à capacidade de pensar, de criticar.
    3. O desconforto e o contraditório têm que existir em uma sala de aula, e não ir na rede social e ler exatamente o que eu penso e o que eu gosto, porque, além de me identificar com isso, eu acabo por exorcizar o outro. Daí surgem os discursos de ódio que tanto vemos nas redes sociais.
    4. Assim como a tecnologia invadiu a família, o trabalho invadiu os lares, não sabemos mais os limites e ficamos muito partidos. E quando estamos partidos adoecemos, pois ficamos desconectados de nós mesmos e infelizes. O trabalho tem uma função social na vida do homem importantíssima, deveria ser vivido como uma fonte de prazer e não deve estar misturado na relação com a família.
    5. Não existem fórmulas, mas quando o sujeito estiver tomado pela angústia, e se essa angústia for maior do que ele suporta, acho que é o momento de reavaliar a vida e pedir ajuda. Quando a angústia interfere na vida da gente, seja no trabalho ou nas relações familiares e amorosas, é a hora de parar. O problema é que quando temos uma subjetividade anestesiada, conforme falamos no início, ela adoece sem perceber.
    6. Normalmente quando a criança usa excessivamente jogos e celulares é porque a família também tem esse uso. Muitas vezes uma mãe dá o smartphone para a criança porque lhe falta tempo para cuidar. E falta mesmo. Então, acho que a família deve rever a própria postura em relação ao tempo dedicado aos filhos.
    7. O alerta entra na nossa vida quando não conseguimos mais nos conectar efetivamente com o outro, quando eu não consigo mais estabelecer um momento de estudo para uma criança, quando não consigo estabelecer para o adolescente um momento de conversa, quando não consigo ter com o meu parceiro ou com os meus amigos um momento de diálogo. O celular hoje é uma prótese, não conseguimos mais viver sem, mas temos que saber utilizar.
    8. A outra coisa que percebemos, especialmente em sala de aula, quando o aluno mexe no celular, é que não ficamos inteiros nas relações. Ficamos divididos quando estamos em uma conversa presencial e pegamos o celular para checar as mensagens do WhatsApp.
    9. Cada vez mais vamos às mídias sociais em busca de um igual, de uma identidade que venha a nos confortar. E, na maioria das vezes, eu percebo que as mídias sociais vieram anestesiar as pessoas.
    10. Como fica o limite entre trabalho e lazer, já que as demandas por WhatsApp e e-mail extrapolam o horário comercial?
    11. O Brasil é um dos campeões mundiais em tempo de permanência na internet: está em terceiro lugar. O internauta brasileiro fica, em média, nove horas e 14 minutos por dia conectado. O número, levantado pela Hootsuite e We Are Social

    1. Gli strumenti individuati per consolidare nel futuro una relazione più articolata, empatica e di prossimità tra amministrazione e cittadinanza attengono soprattutto a: abilitazione di strumenti di monitoraggio e gestione delle fragilità sociali e funzionali del sistema cittadino; attivazione di reti permanenti di collaborazione con operatori e stakeholder del territorio per il supporto alla popolazione più vulnerabile; attivazione di portali unici per l’informazione alla cittadinanza sui servizi e le agevolazioni disponibili, interoperabili con altre piattaforme abilitanti per la finalizzazione delle domande.

      Premesso che è ottima la lista degli "strumenti individuati", nel contempo ritengo che sia necessario l'esercizio di specificare i progetti, le iniziative che si intendono proporre e perseguire proprio per dare contenuto e finalizzazione alle "lesson learned", ovvero all'esperienza fatta nell'ultimo anno. E magari partendo da ciò che già esiste sul territorio, come la Tessera Salvavita per i Senzatetto o la Busta Rossa del Municipio di Milano e di Cinisello Balsamo.

    1. E-LEARNING IMPLICATIONS FOR ADULT LEARNING

      The authors spend time noting and comparing new perspectives between andragogy and pedagogy. The authors compare teaching strategies and personality types. They conclude by defining several rules observed for e-learning in adult education.

      Rating: 7/10

      Note: https://eric.ed.gov/?id=EJ1013743

    1. In the film Hiroshima Mon Amour we are shown some of the fallout from the bombing of Hiroshima, Japan during WW II. We not only see the human and physical carnage from the atomic bomb, we later see the affects of the war go far beyond physical but there are also emotional and psychological effects that are long lasting. The main female character tells us of her own suffering of falling in love with a man who was from the other side of the war. When she is discovered she is punished severely not only by the people of the town but her own parents. She has brought disgrace on her family and for this they cut off her hair and tell people they've sent her away but she is actually being hidden in a basement and it seems that she's being starved or mistreated. She's also fallen into a deep depression from the soldier's death . When she finally confesses this to the Japanese man she has started having an affair with. She loses her sanity a bit again. He slaps her dramatically and she is quickly brought back to reality in a bar. These two contrasting stories of the war in Europe as well as in Japan, speak to the ugliness of war. The Japanese man wasn't their when the bomb was dropped but his family was still affected. Perhaps the director is trying to teach us a lesson, that everyone involved in a war suffers in one way or another. You don't have to be physically affected by the war to experience trauma. The fallout of war can last a lifetime.

    1. This would be another great source for support. The information so far will provide insight on my mixed group of adult learners. It would be helpful in revealing a sort of hidden factor in the learning process.

    2. While individuals use these tools in the hope that their training will improve their performance, this relationship is not a given. This paper proposes that an individual's level of digital literacy affects her performance through its impact on her performance and effort expectations. To explain the influence of digital li

      This is the very reason I selected this paper. Digital literacy is also a factor in determining one's technological acumen.

    1. Adult learning theories are not just a collection of jargons, concepts, and ideas about how adults learn. These theories help you plan your course during conception, development, and execution, in a way that will facilitate the learning process.

      Outlines adult learning "theories": Andragogy, Transformational Learning, and Experiential Learning, and states that they are important to educational designers, but doesn't really connect them to instructional design, let alone e-design. 3/10

    1. Vicariously Through Impressio

      CONTEXTUALIZE:

      In addition to this passage from The Geography of Plants, Humboldt, in his book, Cosmos, references impressionist art, i.e., European landscape painting, poetry, and plant cultivation. He writes, "I regard it as one of the fairest fruits of general European civilization that it is now almost everywhere possible for men to obtain-by the cultivation of exotic plants, by the charm of landscape painting, and by the power of the inspiration of language,- some part, at least, of that enjoyment of nature, which, when pursued by long and dangerous journeys through the interior of continents, is afforded by her immediate contemplation" (Humboldt, 100).

      Humboldt, Alexander V. Cosmos, 7th ed. London: John Murray, Albemarle Street, 1849.

      Both passages embody centralized globalization. Humboldt writes of cultural globalization specifically by describing exploration and translation of experience to an art form for the common man to experience. What is written of less is the concurrent economic and political globalization occurring as explorers (botanists included) extract people, plants, and animals from places of origin either literally or symbolically (in art) and colonizing or dominating the plant species Humboldt so lovingly mentions. Praise of impression of natural ephemeral qualities is especially interesting to read about in the current time of a pandemic when our only access to lands unbeknownst to us is through the image- rather written or seen, we are quite literally the man isolated in this passage.

      Jane Hutton refers to Humboldt's exploitation of the guano for the intention of scientific analysis in France in the early 1800s- like we have spoken of Francis Bacon's dissection/ research approach to the ecological phenomenon, Humboldt's "analysis" turning into globalized trade is another example of the evolution of human detachment and compartmentalization of the earth.

      RELATE:

      E. O. Wilson was quoted in an interview with PBS, saying, "Children who learn about nature solely from television and computers are not developing fully', Wilson argues. 'They need to experience wildlife firsthand, like this child holding a snail." Wilson focuses on children's upbringing in the time of technology, suburbia, and "soccer moms." He compares children absorbed in technology to cattle in a feedlot. However, both species are content in their spaces; they are not fully the species that they have the potential to be. They are not in their most natural environment. He claims that this comparison is quite extreme. Wilson claims that children are perfectly content experiencing African wildlife or even dinosaurs from a computer screen where they cannot fully develop the sense of discovery and physiological euphoria experienced in the wild on their own. I see this thought translating not only to children but to all people, post-Globalization. One can go to an art museum or botanical garden and experience what they might imagine the actual wilderness may feel. We live now, more than ever, in an imaginative world that debilitates us from actually experiencing the earth.

    1. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) includes discarded CRT monitors in its category of “hazardous household waste”.

      And legally, cannot be discarded in a landfill. Rather, is sold to "recycling" companies or sent to other countries.

    2. Computers and entertainment centers and other electrical appliances convert the alternating current they are receiving to direct current which the equipment will use to power its activities using less electricity

      It seems unlikely that broken and unused appliances are still creating electromagnetic waves.

    1. Currents from 100 to 200 milliamperes generally cause death because the heart usually goes into fibrillation, a condition in which the heart begins to “quiver” and the pumping action stops. Currents above 200 milliamperes cause the heart to squeeze shut. When the current is removed, the heart usually returns to a normal pumping action.

    1. Mais cela ne risque-t-il pas, à terme, d’affaiblir notre mémoire ?

      On suppose qu'il s'agit d'une mémoir à long terme. D'autre recherche montre que le mémoire de travail et de sequentiel s'améloire en utilisant l'Internet.
