    1. Fellow student, since you are reading this, you installed Hypothes.is as the instructor's recommended. However, the extension by default has permissions to read all data on all websites you visit. Technically that means email, banking sites, etc. I for one don't want to give random software that authority. The developer did provide a easy way to limit that, and I'll assume he programmed it to work as promised. If you right click on the "h." extension icon, you can change "This can read and write all site data" to only Coursera - which means you can use the extension for the class, but it shouldn't be reading your emails or bank passwords.

      For the course writers and INSEAD - while Hypothesis looks solid and its nice that its non-profit, encouraging all students to install unrestricted extensions which can read all pages and data is a big responsibility, it could easily go wrong. Have you considered how this could be used as malware with the extensive permissions the extension is granted by default?

    1. Hospitalists are often referred to as the quarterbacks of the hospital. But even the best QB needs a good team to succeed. For HMGs, that roster increasingly includes nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs).
    2. Aside from NPs and PAs, another extension of HM has been the gravitation in recent years of hospitalists into post-acute-care settings, including skilled-nursing facilities (SNFs), long-term care facilities, post-discharge clinics, and patient-centered homes.

    1. When multiple tabs consume your application and you need to have a common gateway for the interaction.

      eg : an application which shows total number of mouse clicks through all tabs, in all of them.

    2. Background pages are the controllers of our application and exist through all the time our application is alive. They can be consumed by any tab at any time as long as the Background Page has registered an event listener

      what's meant by registering an event listener by bg process?

    3. An extension "registers" callbacks to Chrome for a specific situation given you described a specific interface to do so

      can some one elaborate on this? ty

    1. Some cracks are more likely to happen than others, in extension, perpendicular to the force applied is where it will break first ( boof is the breaking sound apparently) in engineering it is most often extension. Geologists work in compression. What happens when you're pushing the original cracks together makes cracks in the vertical orientation will appear as the cracks in the horizontal orientation close.

      How do we know? Milk in glass bottles- glass in refillable bottles but they would break easily and someone wondered why? so they discovered there were microcracks and would make the bottles break easier- not all glass is created equal.

    1. What about extensions for other browsers? We’re working on that. The next supported browser is likely to be Firefox.

      I'm writing this note in... Safari!

      I thought hypothes.is could only work with the Chrome applet.

      Still looking for a way to use hypothes.is from a tablet.

    1. The temporary solution we found is to wrap chrome.* api callback with setTimeout() function. In that case errors thrown within chrome.* api call are passed to window.onerror with correct line number. Example:

      Wrapping all the chrome.* async API calls such that exceptions in the callback result in an error being logged to a handler that we control looks like the way to go.

    2. In Chrome extensions, errors thrown in callbacks for async APIs do not trigger the global window.onerror handler.

    1. Add a toggle button to the Firefox user interface. With this module you can create buttons that function like a check box, representing an on/off choice.

      Seems to support using a toggle for the Hypothesis extension.

    1. The following selection from The Yale Law Journal is not paginated and should not be used for citation purposes.

      Note that this disclaimer only says the document should not be used for citation purposes, but doesn't say we can't use it for annotation purposes like testing out the Chrome PDF.js + Hypothes.is extension! :)

      You can install the extension from the Chrome Web Store with this link:
