    1. This post articulates a lot of what I've been thinking about for the past 18 months or so, but it adds the additional concept of community integration.

      Interestingly, this aligns with the early, tentative ideas around what the future of In Beta might look like as a learning community, rather than a repository of content.

    1. Regardless of an explicit requirement, it is an implication of membership in the academic community that its members have a responsibility, and a right, to contribute to the intellectual corpus of their time.

      So who then is, or isn't, a "member" of the "academic community?" And is it incumbent that members "produce ideas" within their defined fields, or does their membership entitle (require?) them to speak more broadly than that?

    1. In a service learning course, this community expands even further beyond the boundaries of the class

      I feel there's something profound, here. Grades are primarily about individual achievement in an environment which is deemed to be competitive. Even in teamwork, there's often a notion that each individual's grade is more important than the team's success (which is part of the challenge of teaching teamwork). Peer-assessment can be pretty powerful. ... and becomes quite impactful in a community context. Learners whose work is directly embedded in a community setting often receive deeper feedback than grades. In some cases (such as university-supported Community Service Learning), they may receive partial course credit for volunteering.

    1. While you're welcome to use ProMotion, please note that we rely on the community to maintain it. We are happy to merge pull requests and release new versions but are no longer driving primary development.

    1. The reason we've avoided registering "Cinnamon" as a desktop name is that it opens up issues with many upstream apps that currently OnlyShowIn=Gnome or Gnome;Unity or just Unity. The relationship Mint has with Gnome and Ubuntu isn't genial enough that we could get them to add Cinnamon to their desktop files, so we would have to distribute and maintain separate duplicate .desktop files just for Cinnamon for these upstream packages.
    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2020, November 9). Second session now underway at the SciBeh workshop: Session 2: Interfacing with Policy How can the wider science community be policy-relevant?

    1. The question, 'What is library and information science?' does not elicit responses of the same internal conceptual coherence as similar inquiries as to the nature of other fields, e.g., 'What is chemistry?', 'What is economics?', 'What is medicine?' Each of those fields, though broad in scope, has clear ties to basic concerns of their field. [...] Neither LIS theory nor practice is perceived to be monolithic nor unified by a common literature or set of professional skills. Occasionally, LIS scholars (many of whom do not self-identify as members of an interreading LIS community, or prefer names other than LIS), attempt, but are unable, to find core concepts in common
    2. fragmented adhocracy

    1. Posting an issue on the discussion boards for a three year old game, yesterday, I wasn't holding my breath for a reply. Earlier, this morning, a dev. responded, stating they'd look at fixing it, and it was just a few hours before it were sorted!

    1. Those who are responsible for upholding this system profess to want to fight crime, but they do so by destroying communities.

      This is an obviously emotional appeal that would affect anyone in the audience since most everyone has a sense of community somewhere. This statement also boldly shades those who uphold the system; including judges, cops, lawyers, and politicians.

    1. Twitter

      I would also say that social media platforms described here can also be combined with the previous bullet point. Students can use this platform to engage with the lay community and educate especially in the age of misinformation.

    2. What challenges do your students face in their learning environments, and how does your pedagogy address them?

      My students experience a number of accessibility challenges. These can range from paying for materials, viewing materials in different modalities, accessing the materials at different times etc. My hope is that Open Pedagogy can help lower those barriers to increase educational outcomes.

      I also (esp in the age of COVID) want to use resources that help build community within my classrooms and across the university environment.

    1. David Dye. (2021, January 26). So if you work somewhere already like this maybe suggest how to really run a WFH/mobile collaboration uni, and how we re-tool the physical meeting place we then in light of that? Maybe the philosophers already know this?? [Tweet]. @DavidDye9. https://twitter.com/DavidDye9/status/1354176181042556929

    1. NO support whatsoever will be given for the moment unless I gave you the program personally. This is because all of this is work in progress and I can't code while constantly writing documentation and answering questions.
    1. Because students learned at their own pace, there was no group interaction built into the instruction. The purpose was to provide students with materials from which they could master a topic or skill.

      Problems found with the early ID process was a lack of community building that has been found to be beneficial in certain ID models. McMilan and Chavis in their journal entry entitled "Sense of Commnity: A Definition and Theory" concluded that there are four elements of community that benefit individuals, those were; membership, influence, integration and fulfullment of needs, and shared emotional connections. This is just one example of psyhological reaserach supported the need for community to benefit individuals as a whole.

      I believe this could be applied in the classroom to support education and build community.

    1. But all of these attempts misunderstand why the Open Source ecosystem is successful as a whole. The ecosystem of fairly standard licenses provides a level playing field that allows collaboration with low friction, and produces massive value for everyone involved – both to those that contribute and to those that don't. It is not without problems (there are many essential but unsexy projects that are struggling with funding), but introducing more friction won't improve the success of this ecosystem – it will just lead to some parts of the ecosystem to break off.
    1. While Christian community has its wonderful side, there is also the difficult dark side. When people get to know each other really well and spend a lot of time together, lots of exposure happens. Lots of conflicts. Lots of misunderstandings. Lots of pain and hurt. The NT itself shows us the many problems that arise when Christians meet together closely and regularly outside of institutional structures. The letters written by Paul to churches are examples.

    1. So they want to "reduce fragmentation" OK.
    2. My biggest issue with snap is not the concept per se but that it's a mostly Ubuntu thing and FlatPak and AppImage are similar ideas. For once it would be nice if the Linux world would consolidate around a single technology instead of fragmenting like this.
    1. have a volunteer program to encourage community participation in its activities, which should include: identification and development of volunteer opportunities procedures for recruitment of volunteers matching the needs and interests of volunteers to those of the museum provision of appropriate training and supervision for volunteers provision of a safe and secure working environment for volunteers volunteer evaluation public and private recognition of volunteers' contributions

      (3) Volunteer program (adding on to).

    1. “This isn’t him going to grab a beer with guys. He’s going to find psychological and emotional support from men who understand his problems,” Liz explains. “They’re not just getting together to have a bitch fest, gossip, or complain about their lives. They’re super intentional about what they’re talking about, why, and what’s important to them.”

      Hamlett discusses the psychological costs men being isolated (toxic masculinity/macho culture) has caused on society, especially women. She also explores the idea of support groups for men, highlighted in this passage.

    1. As Bellah points out, religion is as a way of being. We might also view it as a way of feeling, as a way of feeling together.
