Michael Caulfield, an educator who has written extensively about misinformation, media literacy, and the importance of online “info-environmentalism,”19Michael Caulfield, “Info-Environmentalism: An Introduction,” EDUCAUSEreview (Nov./Dec., 2017): 92-93, https://er.educause.edu/articles/2017/10/info-environmentalism-an-introduction. distilled concern with online annotation to a pressing social question:It’s your [web] browser, and you’re allowed to annotate anything you want with it. But the separate question is what should be encouraged by the design of our technology. People want to turn this into a legal debate, but it’s not. It’s a tools debate, and the main product of a builder of social tools is not the tool itself but the culture that it creates. So what sort of society do you want to create?

      Some more notes about concept maps:

      • Each concept is a noun or adjective
      • Each connector is a verb
      • More general concepts are arranged on the top of the page (so we have a top down or TD arrangement for graphing)
      • Highly specific terms are placed in the bottom ## Software for concept mapping:
      • Paper pencil (most convenient)
      • cmaptools, free and excellent tools
      • freemind (mind mapping as well but you can use for concept mapping) See a large list here

      Here is a 'coggle' that shows how concept maps work (a very simple concept map just two nodes and one edge)

    1. Trauma-Informed Screening and Assessment Tools

      Difference between trauma screening and trauma assessment tools: Screening tools are brief, used universally, and designed to detect exposure to traumatic events and symptoms. They help determine whether the child needs a professional, clinical, trauma-focused assessment. Functional assessments are more comprehensive and capture a range of specific information about the child’s symptoms, functioning, and support systems. A trauma assessment can determine strengths as well as clinical symptoms of traumatic stress. It assesses the severity of symptoms, and can determine the impact of trauma (how thoughts, emotions, and behaviors have been changed by trauma) on the child’s functioning in the various well-being domains.

    1. After all, the best messaging app in most countries or continents is the one most other people are already using there.
    2. Most of these near clones have and will fail. The reason that matching the basic proof of work hurdle of an Status as a Service incumbent fails is that it generally duplicates the status game that already exists. By definition, if the proof of work is the same, you're not really creating a new status ladder game, and so there isn't a real compelling reason to switch when the new network really has no one in it.

      This presumes that status is the only reason why people would join such a network. It also underlines the fact that the platform needs to be easy and simple to use, otherwise no one enters it and uses it as the tool first before the network exists.

    3. Recall Twitter in the early days, when it was somewhat of a harmless but somewhat inert status update service.

      As I'm thinking about it I definitely went to Twitter for its use as a tool and not for the social or network piece.

    1. But thirdly, and most valuably, the template gives you a big space at the bottom to write sentences that summarise the page.  That is, you start writing your critical response on the notes themselves.

      I do much this same thing, however, I'm typically doing it using Hypothes.is to annotate and highlight. These pieces go back to my own website where I can keep, categorize, and even later search them. If I like, I'll often do these sorts of summaries on related posts themselves (usually before I post them publicly if that's something I'm planning on doing for a particular piece.)

    1. Furthermore, teachers have often been provided with inadequate training for this task. Many approaches to teachers’ professional development offer a one-size-fits-all approach to technology integration when, in fact, teachers operate in diverse contexts of teaching and learning

      Technology is always changing, how will we keep up with the changes and how will we incorporate tools that we are unsure about? It is understandable that in college, we learn about the current technology of that time, but it is our responsibility to understand that technology will always change and that we should try to keep up-to-date on what tools we can use to teach our lessons.

    1. There’s also a robust ecosystem of tools to follow users, monitor site annotations etc.

      Wait? What!? I've been wanting to be able to follow users annotations and I'd love the ability to monitor site annotations!! (I've even suggested that they added Webmention before to do direct notifications for site annotations.)

      Where have you seen these things hiding Tom?

    2. The only one little personal issue and this could just be me not anyone else's did the damn alarm system on trading view, just not a fan of. But everything else is great.
    3. ike I said, using the trading view chart is the best thing that you guys could have done. It's not, you know, like I said, don't, don't reinvent the wheel. It's already perfectly round. This one works great.
    4. e website. One thing I do love that you guys have the trading view doesn't have or doesn't have a good layout for in the charting, well it's still, it's still coming soon, but the order book and the trade history are really important to me.
    5. Um, so, but the other way is, you know, when, when they do make these transactions, they're all recorded on the exchanges that you, I moved those, that data to a spreadsheet and that's where I do the tax tracking.
    6. Basically, I will definitely take a look at the total market cast, um, and the alt coin market cap. So I go to queen signals.trade, which is a neat little tool. And uh, they basically pull data from coin market cap. So I think it's the only site I know of where you can look at the total market cap.
    7. well, I was thinking like you're talking about sentiment. Is there some type of sentiment tracker? I mean, I don't know. I'm sure that's super difficult technically to do, but that would intrigue people.
    8. but I do you script on trading view. So treating you is great. Not only for the charts, but they also have an idea section and a script section.
    9. I'm trading these who has these like how to videos, video tutorials and they really go in to the nitty gritty. I think they also have like a Wiki fac or like a wiki tutorial that is just like a whole encyclopedia of trading view and have every indicator you want, you click it and it expands and you can read about everything
    10. Yeah, I mean, it really, it when I use the most trading view is 100% open all the time. So important

      b/c of charts

    11. books. You know, I don't know if it's the Mac interface thing, but it's very buggy.

      coinagy is buggy compared to trading view

    12. I just chose it and I paid and it was only like, I want to say like 30 bucks a month maybe. I Dunno. And that was also during the bull run when I had a lot more crypto money and I was just like, whatever. I'll buy it invested in my, uh, in my education and tools.
    13. ut as far as like trading, you can't plug into, you know, APIs to be going trades a cryptocurrency exchanges
    14. say try to focus on something that's really gonna drive you away from the competition, that people need. Because like I pay for multiple tools.
    15. gether or going back into, three commas and seeing what hit. Cause they track all that information and will tell you when it's sold, how much money you made, the bitcoin value and in USD and you'll be able to kind of see what levels of hit.
    16. Mostly with the shitty little Exce
    17. I just don't like buying on there. So if I don't have to go into the application, i prefer not to. [inaudible] to Coinbase pro is also, it's poorly set up in my opinion. I don't know why i use it, but usually I'm just going in there to withdraw money.
    18. Coinagy I actually still usually prefer to use to buy on Bittrex because I'm usually signed into Coinagy for the simpllicity. And if I have money in multiple areas, I can do it all from one platform. And because I just, I hate Bittrex. They redid their entire platform. I think they dropped the ball
    19. Purchasing. And then once I've bought into an asset, I will establish all my sale targets and stops in three commas.
    20. Um, and from a charting perspective it's better than coinagy because it allows you to put alerts on more things than just price action.
    21. Tradingview, I pay for because I want to have alerts on specific coins and you don't have the functionality and the free version.
    22. A lot of the tools I've been using the free versions because I haven't gotten to the point where, uh, I'm knowledgeable on how to maximize its value and therefore I don't pay for it because my knowledge is lacking.
    23. um, so crypto compare as it is a good place to find the volumes
    24. Whereas three commas is more structured that if you wanted to exit a position it would do so, but it be a market order and the would obviously bring with it a larger fees.
    25. Um, three commas does that as well because it allows you to put in your targets, which is great cause it, you know, it auto sells it for you and then you can go back and look at it.
    26. Oh, go into my own trading journal, document it to make sure I have a system of record to hold myself accountable and for being able to look in the future to see over time how I perform on a weekly and monthly basis.
    27. But then when I kept getting, you know, uh, burned on my stops not hitting because they just moved too fast and the limits didnt fill or the orders on the flip side didn't sell.
    28. That's the one benefit of coinagy. You know, where I can actually plug in all the APIs for all the exchanges I work with and then basically operate from, from one application.
    29. An example would be three commas, my main use case for it has been the market orders
    30. But I'm also not looking at necessarily reinvent the wheel, but the tools are offering specific applications, do a really good job at what they do.
    31. trading view, coinagy, cryptoalerts.ai,
    32. Um, instead of building it from scratch cause they've done a good job and I believe that have a easier enough api to pull in, uh, those tools into your own
    33. hich is a reason why I would use, you know, a charting solution, which would be a tradingview or coinagy.
    34. right. But if I have one trade that sells at the proper say private level or protects my ass, you know, and uh, and a stop loss scenario, the, the monthly subscription, you know, usually ends up paying for itself at them, the matter of one trade.
    35. um, profit off of them or protect my do
    36. market order functionality, which a lot of exchanges don't have
    1. Each article therefore offers anddeploys a series of tools for encountering and producing posthumanrhetorics

      Herein lies the problem, most notably with the notion of "tools." Issues arise not because of the process by which one tries to complete the task, but rather, through the use of inappropriate tools for the job.The job at hand is to "produce postman rhetorics." This job can be likened to any other sort of carpentry job, say building a bookshelf. If one decides to use a screwdriver to nail into a board, the end product and process will not be as fulfilling. Will the job get done? Probably. Will it produce the same quality as using a hammer would? Probably not. The same can be said when producing posthuman rhetorics: we must find the correct tools to use in order to produce the best work.

    1. Bitte überprüft immer selbst, ob sich an diesen Bedingungen nichts geändert hat

      Leider gibt es immer wieder Änderungen, die aber im schlimmsten Falle dazu führen, dass ihr dieses eine Tool nicht mehr benutzen könnt. Wir freuen uns darüber, wenn ihr Änderungen z.B. hier meldet, so dass alle es wissen.

    1. In the past, technology has extended the human body, providing it with tools to act upon the world. But at some point, a tool becomes something more. When does it become part of its user?

      In this passage, the author is claiming that with transhumanism and the growing appeal of technology as tools to advance or "extend" the human body, it can blur the lines between what is considered human and what is considered technology. For example, the author previously mentions social media and cell phone use in today's world. In today's society, using smartphones has become second nature. The author is implying that in the near future tools and technology such as anabolic steroids, laser surgery, advanced prosthetic limbs, etc can also become as prominent to humans as cellphones/social media is now.

    1. We’ve played with this concept of front-end blogging for a while now. Alan Levine has built an open sourced tool called TRU Writer that even provides this type of front end interface on a WordPress site.
    1. “If you’re going to allow users to turn off something called ‘Location History,’ then all the places where you maintain location history should be turned off,” Mayer said. “That seems like a pretty straightforward position to have.” Google says it is being perfectly clear. “There are a number of different ways that Google may use location to improve people’s experience, including: Location History, Web and App Activity, and through device-level Location Services,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement to the AP. “We provide clear descriptions of these tools, and robust controls so people can turn them on or off, and delete their histories at any time.”
    1. Some tools for researchers to enhance their OPR practices: hypothes.is allows you to annotate and review almost anything you find on the web, word by word, alone, or as a group. Publons  helps you to make your current and previous peer review pieces publicly available. The Winnower helps you to find reviewers for whatever published piece of information you have

      Hypothes.is could serve as group knowledge sharing tool

    1. accelerated growth of undergraduate classes that explicitly engage with digital humanities methods.

      This is important! I think that many classes are starting to use digital tools to asses and accelerate learning in their classrooms and it would be important to take a class in digital humanities in order to get a background into the different tools/methods presented.

    1. This serendipitous meeting on Steve Wheeler's blog back then was the spark that led to the creation of connected network at a point when I had recently developed an online space using moodle for supporting the teaching of languages at Warwick's Language Centre. The opportunity therefore to connect our student cohorts meant that we could set about creating a shared, large scale virtual exchange.

    1. En el mundo de los insectos esta transformación se produce como el resultado de una auto-digestión, un fundirse total (meltdown) de la oruga en la que sólo permanecen intactos unos pocos focos de tejido vivo, los discos imaginales. Es a partir de ellos que emergen piernas, alas, antenas, segmentos corporales y otras estructuras de la forma adulta como un ser transformado e integrado, la mariposa. Sólo podemos especular qué pueden significar las correspondencias culturales de esta metáfora (2

      Pienso en cómo otros lenguajes y tecnologías se encuentran en Grafoscpio: Pandoc, Lua, Smalltalk, lo escritural, lo hacker y en la deconstrucción y diálogo que favorece esta herramienta, que otras maneras no logocéntricas están por venir.

    2. O, mejor, una metacultura que podría ser la plataforma para una multiplicidad de culturas [un pluriverso...] la cultura de una sociedad en la que los lugares y las comunidades no sean entidades aisladas sino nodos en una variedad de redes [...] ayudando a crear un planeta resiliente donde sería posible, para nosotros y para las generaciones futuras, vivir y, ojalá, vivir bien.

      ¿Metaherramientas para metaculturas?

    3. . Cambiar la forma de cambiar para cambiar de manera autónoma y construir una nueva realidad (comunidad, región, nación) desde abajo y a la izquierda, como los zapatistas gustan decir. La autonomía no se logra por medio de la ‘captura del Estado’ sino recuperando del Estado las áreas claves de la vida social que ha colonizado. Crea ámbitos de acción que son autónomos del Estado y nuevos arreglos institucionales con ese propósito (como las conocidas juntas de buen gobierno en los territorios zapatistas). La autonomía pretende el establecimiento de nuevas bases para la vida social.

      Para compartir el comienzo del Data Week.

      Como la tecnología nos cambia, cambiamos la forma de cambiarnos.

    4. . El diseño mismo se convierte en un proyecto en transición y se une a otros proyectos teórico-políticos que buscan enriquecer nuestro entendimiento de la vida y de lo humano.
    5. Reconoce que todo diseño crea un ‘mundo dentro del mundo’ en el que somos, simultáneamente, diseñados y diseñadores. Todos somos diseñadores y todos somos diseñados.
    6. se pueden diseñar dispositivos para transformar, gradualmente, nuestras maneras principales de entender y de ser

      el cuidado se puede estructurar en el diseño de herramientas y equipos a través de lo que denomina «presenciación” (presencing), un concepto relacionado con la noción del diseño transparente de las interfaces tecnológicas que es clave para la incorporación en las herramientas de hábitos ecológicos a través del diseño para transformar nuestras acciones rutinarias en formas de comportamiento ecológico; esto ha de lograrse mediante la incorporación de ‘guiones’ en el diseño de productos. De esta manera los diseñadores tendrían que ir mucho más allá del objetivo de satisfacer las necesidades de los usuarios para articular, de formas novedosas, las preocupaciones y deseos de una colectividad. Las nuevas rutinas encarnadas se volverían lentamente colectivas y transformarían, eventualmente, la conciencia social y las estructuras institucionales. [...] El enfoque, sin embargo, sigue siendo básicamente teórico y no aborda, explícitamente, la dimensión política.

      Esto pasa en alguna medida con Grafoscopio, pues debido a su caracter de metasistema y su condición de objeto activista, embebe prácticas referidas a la disponibilidad permanente del código fuente, tanto de la herramienta, como de los escritos creados en ella y ejemplifica otras ecologías del conocimiento, asociadas al conocimiento como bien común.

      La comunidad de práctica alrededor de Grafoscopio comparte, deconstruye e incorpora dichas formas de entender y ser, de modos progresivos, configurando una identidad propia, que es distinta al grueso del hackerspace. Una ventaja de nuestro enfoque es que lo político es explícito y la teoría y la práctica dialogan en él a través de dispositivos digitales hacktivistas..

    1. . Mediante el examen de la creación de prototipos como una compleja práctica cultural emergente y la introducción de una meta-reflexión sobre ‘los prototipos de la creación de prototipos’, este proyecto examinó, críticamente, la historicidad de esta práctica; además, destacó la productividad de una práctica de diseño basada en una lógica de experimentación, imaginación, orientación hacia el uso y colaboración que, argumenta, podría informar el trabajo antropológico de manera fructífera (

      La idea de meta-prototipado: prototipar la construcción de prototipos, implicaría el código fuente de las prácticas de prototipado y los prototipos mismos, como menciono en la primera parte de la tesis.

    1. In Bash you quite often need to check to see if a variable has been set or has a value other than an empty string. This can be done using the -n or -z string comparison operators.

      Two most useful commands in bash

    1. At some point in the following decade json-head.appspot.com stopped working. Today I’m bringing it back, mainly as an excuse to try out the combination of Python 3.5 async, the Sanic microframework and Zeit’s brilliant Now deployment platform.

      Oh neat, I had no idea now supported Python. Another option available!

    1. Yes we do have a Wordpress plugin, available here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cloudinary-image-management-and-manipulation-in-the-cloud-cdn/. While you don't need to install any image software on your server, you will need to register for a (free) Cloudinary account to use the plugin and start uploading images to the cloud.

      If you have existing images, presumably you need to re-upload these, I think

    1. ImageOptim makes images load faster Removes bloated metadata. Saves disk space & bandwidth by compressing images without losing quality.

    1. A data lake management service with an Apache licence. I am particularly interested in how well the monitoring features of this platform work.

    1. Singularity containers can be used to package entire scientific workflows, software and libraries, and even data.

      Very interesting, basically Singularity allows containers to run in HPC environments, so that code running in the container can take advantage of the HPC tools, like massive scale and message passing, while at the same time keeping the stuff in the container safer.

    1. Hackerand maker spaces are meta-organizational assemblages. Entanglement – through the notion fo “do-ocracy” –stands in for typical organizational trappings of rules, hierarchies and roles. Hackerspaces morph and evolve to meet the desires of participants, draw on affordances of tools and materialities of the space itself.
