    1. Хочу еще раз высказать, на мой взгляд, ключевой тезис о возможности духовного возрождения в современном мире: Для такого возрождение необходимо становление небольших сообществ, иначе говоря, рабочих групп, в которых будет строиться, развиваться возможность диалога, то есть взаимного понимания и участия в духовном и, в первую очередь, мыслительном общении, преодолевающем границы эгоцентризма его участников. Это принципиально не может быть общением, диалогом, в котором участники изначально согласны друг с другом. Наоборот, чем больше разнообразие и противоположность субъективных точек зрения и убеждений, тем более значимо усилие, направленное на возможность диалога. Христианская любовь состоит не в том, чтобы принимать близких по убеждениям, а в способности слышать Другого именно, как другого, а не как свое нарциссическое отражение. Только в этом случае диалог имеет общечеловеческое, а, точнее говоря, человечески духовное значение, а не значение для секты последователей одной идеологии. Только такая группа изначально воспроизводит и преодолевает современную разобщённость и нарциссический индивидуализм.
    1. with established worldwide fame and prestige, to step in his previous successes to write more-of-the-same books and convert all the attention in cheap money. Just like Robert Kiyosaki did with his 942357 books about “Rich dad”.

      Many artists fall into a creativity trap caused by fame. They spend years developing a great work, but then when it's released, the industry requires they follow it up almost immediately with something even stronger.

      Jewel is an reasonable and perhaps typical example of this phenomenon. She spent several years writing the entirety of her first album Pieces of You (1995), which had three to four solid singles. As it became popular she was rushed to release Spirit (1998), which, while it was ultimately successful, didn't measure up to the first album which had far more incubation time. She wasn't able to build up enough material over time to more easily ride her initial wave of fame. Creativity on demand can be a difficult master, particularly when one is actively touring or supporting their first work while needing to

      (Compare the number of titles she self-wrote on album one vs. album two).

      M. Night Shyamalan is in a similar space, though as a director he preferred to direct scripts that he himself had written. While he'd had several years of writing and many scripts, some were owned by other production companies/studios which forced him to start from scratch several times and both write and direct at the same time, a process which is difficult to do by oneself.

      Another example is Robert Kiyosaki who spun off several similar "Rich Dad" books after the success of his first.

      Compare this with artists who have a note taking or commonplacing practice for maintaining the velocity of their creative output: - Eminem - stacking ammo - Taylor Swift - commonplace practice

      Online

      Short Bio

      Over the years, Matthew has turned his hand to several disciplines, from high school teaching to theatre directing, before taking the MA in the History of the Book at London University. He is now undertaking research for a PhD on an archive formed by his great-grandfather, Frank Fay (1870-1930), an Irish actor and producer, who collaborated with W. B. Yeats and Lady Gregory on the plays that were performed at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin. Matthew is interested in the provenance of books and theatre history.

    1. У моего отца, ветерана труда и летчика экстра-класса, способного в полярную ночь посадить самолет на поляну в тайге, была одна интересная особенность.Первое же мнение, замаскированное под факт, он принимал как единственно верное и непреложное.Например, еще в училище, один начитанный курсант сказал ему, что «Три товарища» Ремарка – лучшая книга на свете. Отец ее тут же прочел – и больше к книгам не притрагивался, вообще. На любые рекомендации он говорил: «Хочешь сказать, что это лучше «Трех товарищей»? Нет? Ну и зачем тогда ее читать?».Он не смотрел фантастику: кто-то авторитетный из его окружения однажды ляпнул «Фантастика это враньё» – и всё, как отрезало. Однажды нам довелось вместе посмотреть по телевизору «Люди в черном». Мы оба смеялись, отлично провели время. Я потом высказался в том смысле, что видишь, мол, фантастика бывает разной, а он помрачнел, подумал немного, и ответил: «Это не фантастика, это комедия».В общем, всё в таком духе:Лучшая машина – новая, даже если она прямо с завода требует ремонта. Генри Форд не мог ошибаться.Лучший табак – в «Беломоре», даже если от него постоянный бронхит. Иначе почему его курил самый умный преподаватель в училище?Переубедить его было невозможно, донести до него что-то новое - нереально.На 25-летие отец вручил мне электронную записную книжку – если кто помнит, были такие черные пеналы с клавиатурой, обычно фирмы «Casio».К тому времени электронными записными книжками давно никто не пользовался, у всех уже были сотовые телефоны, способные сохранять номера, адреса, заметки, и даже потихоньку выходить в интернет.У отца тоже был такой телефон. И у меня был.Но он все равно потратил целый день и объездил весь город, чтобы в каком-то почтовом киоске на самой окраине найти эту копеечную вещь. Такую книжку он видел в начале 90х у знакомого уважаемого бизнесмена, и теперь, когда его сын получил диплом, женился, и открыл своё дело, вручил ему эту солидную статусную вещь. На полном серьезе, безо всякого подтекста.Хвала небесам, мне хватило такта и совести, чтобы не смотреть коню в зубы, а с благодарностью принять подарок, увидев в нем символ отцовского признания.И вместе с тем мне было очень обидно. Не за ненужную и неудобную вещь, которой я никогда не воспользуюсь, а за отца, которому кто-то когда-то давным-давно сломал критическое мышление и умение смотреть на мир своими глазами и судить о вещах своим умом. Иногда я представляю, насколько тяжко жилось ему в странном однобоком мире, что он создал внутри себя – и грущу о том, что не имел никакой возможности помочь ему оттуда выбраться.

    1. the lessons you will find within thesepages are built on timeless and unchanging principles

      The ideas behind knowledge management are largely timeless, but they are far from unchanging. They have evolved slowly over 2000+ years until we broadly threw many of them away in the early 20th century.

      One only need read a few pages of Ann M. Blair's Too Much to Know: Managing Scholarly Information before the Modern Age to see some of the changes and shifts within the space from the 1400s on.

    1. Book review

      Cook, Trevor. “Review: Blair, Ann M. Too Much to Know: Managing Scholarly Information Before the Modern Age. New Haven: Yale University Press, 2010. Pp. Xv, 397. ISBN 978-0-300-11251-1 (Hardcover) $45.” Renaissance and Reformation 33, no. 4 (December 12, 2011): 109–11. https://doi.org/10.33137/rr.v33i4.15975.

      Note that they've accidentally used the word "in" instead of "Before" in the title of the book.

    2. one cannot help but wish that Blair had discussed her ownmethod at greater length, especially given that many of the authors she citesbelieved the sources of one’s achievement should be made public.

      I too had hoped that Ann Blair would discuss her own methods of note taking, compiling, and analysis.

      Perhaps we should interview her for the details?

    1. “Note-taking” is a general term that covers various kinds of writing in responseto listening, reading, or thinking, often in more or less direct preparation for theproduction of a composition or report (oral or written).

    1. En somme, les études sur la communication des élèves atteints d’autisme permettent de mettre en évidence l’importance d’un contexte riche en stimulations appropriées (sons et images), mais également une évidente « stabilité » de l’information à décoder, le suivi des émotions des personnages, le rôle de l’imitation dans les apprentissages. Ces résultats encouragent donc l’usage d’outils informatiques adéquats pour améliorer la communication sociale chez les enfants atteints d’autisme.

      L'association de deux sujets qui n'ont pas de corrélation vérifiéé, revient dans la conclusion en contradiction avec la conclusion de l'étude de Ramdoss, S et al.

    2. Nous allons montrer par une courte analyse de quelques études l’impact du travail éducatif informatisé dans l’apprentissage de la communication sociale chez des enfants atteints d’autisme.

      En contradiction avec l'hypothèse :

      Results suggest that CBI should not yet be considered a researched-based approach to teaching communication skills to individuals with ASD. However, CBI does seem a promising practice that warrants future research. Les résultats suggèrent que le CBI ne devrait pas encore être considéré comme un approche fondée sur la recherche pour enseigner les compétences en communication aux personnes ayant Troubles du Spectre Autistique. Cependant, le CBI semble être une pratique prometteuse qui justifie des recherches futures.

    1. Also, we shouldn’t underestimate the advantages of writing. In oralpresentations, we easily get away with unfounded claims. We candistract from argumentative gaps with confident gestures or drop acasual “you know what I mean” irrespective of whether we knowwhat we meant. In writing, these manoeuvres are a little too obvious.It is easy to check a statement like: “But that is what I said!” Themost important advantage of writing is that it helps us to confrontourselves when we do not understand something as well as wewould like to believe.

      In modern literate contexts, it is easier to establish doubletalk in oral contexts than it is in written contexts as the written is more easily reviewed for clarity and concreteness. Verbal ticks like "you know what I mean", "it's easy to see/show", and other versions of similar hand-waving arguments that indicate gaps in thinking and arguments are far easier to identify in writing than they are in speech where social pressure may cause the audience to agree without actually following the thread of the argument. Writing certainly allows for timeshiting, but it explicitly also expands time frames for grasping and understanding a full argument in a way not commonly seen in oral settings.

      Note that this may not be the case in primarily oral cultures which may take specific steps to mitigate these patterns.

      Link this to the anthropology example from Scott M. Lacy of the (Malian?) tribe that made group decisions by repeating a statement from the lowest to the highest and back again to ensure understanding and agreement.


      This difference in communication between oral and literate is one which leaders can take advantage of in leading their followers astray. An example is Donald Trump who actively eschewed written communication or even reading in general in favor of oral and highly emotional speech. This generally freed him from the need to make coherent and useful arguments.

    1. На человеческом существовании порой лежит и отпечаток того, что можно, пожалуй, назвать отчаянием. Человек действует - читает, сердится, трудится, исследует, добивается чего-то, зарабатывает деньги - и в последнем отчаянии (иногда безотчетном) он говорит себе, что все это как целое не имеет никакого смысла и, если задается вопрос о смысле целого, то будет правильно заглушить его и отвергнуть как не имеющий ответа и потому бессмысленный". К. Ранер.https://pavel-g-m.livejournal.com/326947.html
    1. We should be careful that we do not become our own tools.

      Compare and contrast this admonition and extension with

      Life imitates art. We shape our tools and thereafter they shape us. — John M. Culkin, “A Schoolman’s Guide to Marshall McLuhan” (The Saturday Review, March 1967) (Culkin was a friend and colleague of Marshall McLuhan)

    1. I'd argue it's slightly different--

      It is different. However, they're similar enough to draw lessons from.

      I use similar, non-specced canaries all the time. E.g. small fixes for things in projects that are nonetheless obvious errors, or determining whether someone is going to try to frame my attempt to contribute by "upperhanding" me, whether they're hostile to messages attached to a name that they don't recognize, etc.

      For example, if it takes too much back and forth to get a typo or link fixed in the docs (or any sort of review process for content on what is purported to be a "wiki"), then odds are, things are messed up at a greater level that are going to be a source of frustration later. At that point, I'm out.

      A surprisingly large number of projects fail these, in what we are otherwise expected to consider the present Renaissance of FOSS...

    1. In a short academic dissertation on the art of excerpts, Andreas Stübel described the card index as a ‘secondary and subsidiary memory’ (‘memoria secundaria and subsidiaria’), summing up in just three words the dilemma scholars had been struggling with for two centuries with respect to the use of commonplace books.28 As far as I know, Stübel was the first among contem-poraries to speak of secondary memory.

      28 Andreas M. Stübel, Exercitatio academica de excerptis adornandis (Leipzig, 1684), 33

      Andreas M. Stübel, in Exercitatio academica de excerptis adornandis (Leipzig, 1684), becomes the first to of many to speak about the idea of "secondary memory".

      I like this idea better than Tiago Forte's marketing term "second brain."

    1. The story is linear (the stages are followed in order, with no going back), uniform (they are followed the same way everywhere), progressive (the stages are “stages” in the first place, leading from lower to higher, more primitive to more sophisticated), deterministic (development is driven by technology, not human choice), and teleological (the process culminates in us).

      This might be the case if the tools drove the people, but isn't it more likely the way in which different people use the tools?

      Which direction gives rise to more complexity?

    1. Bret Victor: email (9/3/04) Interface matters to me more than anything else, and it always has. I just never realized that. I've spent a lot of time over the years desperately trying to think of a "thing" to change the world. I now know why the search was fruitless -- things don't change the world. People change the world by using things. The focus must be on the "using", not the "thing". Now that I'm looking through the right end of the binoculars, I can see a lot more clearly, and there are projects and possibilities that genuinely interest me deeply.

      Specifically highlighting that the "focus must be on the 'using', not the 'thing'".

      This quote is very reminiscent of John M. Culkin's quote (often misattributed to McLuhan) "We shape our tools and thereafter they shape us."

    1. Did you know: The Stogie was invented in Wheeling, Virginia, West Virginia. In 1819, Joseph Kirk of Wheeling began manufacturing cigars and in 1825, he was listed as a Cigar and “Stogie” manufacturer. Mifflin Marsh in relating the history of the Stogie tells us, “Some inventive genius here in Wheeling, (Kirk maybe) conceived the idea of making a cheap smoke for the (Conestoga) driver.”
    1. It was the Marsh Wheeling Stogie. Founded in 1840 by Mifflin Marsh, Marsh Wheeling (from Wheeling, Virginia at the time it didn’t become West Virginia until the Civil War) initially made cigars that were affordable for the average person. Marsh made cigars that sold for less than a penny a piece. Marsh also was the first marketer in the cigar business, handing out free samples to Conestoga wagon drivers on the National Road—which ran from Baltimore to Wheeling connecting the east coast with the Ohio River – and to Captains of the river boats that dotted the Ohio River and he then sold the rest to passengers of the boats and wagons. The following year, the Wheeling Suspension Bridge was completed across the Ohio River. As a result, Wheeling’s business really took off and as did Marsh’s. In 1848, Marsh developed what became the icon, the Stogie. At the time, the cheapest cigars were Boston Cheroots selling for $3.50 to $4.00 per thousand. They also were made out of scraps. Mifflin came up with an affordable long filler cigar named in honor of the Conestoga wagons that traveled through Wheeling taking pioneers and settlers out into the west. The Marsh Wheeling Stogie was the result, measuring 7 inches with a 34-ring gauge. (And yes, the use of the word stogie today to mean a cigar comes from the Marsh Wheeling Stogie.) Marsh also came up with the slogan because of the Stogie’s length “longer enjoyment.”

      Cigar manufacturer, M. Marsh & Son, invented the brand "Marsh Wheeling Stogie". M.Marsh & Son invented the Marsh Wheeling Stogie brand because it was initially marketed to conestoga wagon drivers on the National Road between Baltimore and Wheeling.

    1. SDS-PAGEwas performed as described previously (Laemilli, 1970).10-40 μg protein samples were mixed with 4X SDS loading buffer and either incubated at 50 ̊C or 90 ̊C for 10 min. Denatured samples were loaded either on8%or 10%SDS-PAGEgel and run in Tris-Glycine-SDSgel running buffer at 70-100 Volts for 2-3 hin a Mini-PROTEAN®3electrophoresis unit(Bio-Rad).After electrophoresis,gels were either visualized by coomassie brilliant blue (CBB) stainingor processedfor western blotting as described below

    1. the melancholy mournings of the turtle,

      gilmanhernandez already linked to the video I was considering, but (according to a cursory search of YouTube at least) videos of turtle sounds are also likely to be videos of turtles mating or attempting to mate, so how 'mournful' they are is perhaps up to interpretation... 😂

    1. Unfortunately you need to install the postgresql package, because Homebrew does not currently provide a standalone libpq package.

      Interestingly enough, I found that that "brew install libpq" installed from "https://ftp.postgresql.org/pub/source/v11.0/postgresql-11.0.tar.bz2 ... Summary 🍺 /usr/local/Cellar/libpq/11.0: 2,561 files, 27.2MB, built in 4 minutes 30 seconds."

      This may be my favorite line of the entire code of conduct! I'm doing my best to resist....

    1. When you think the problem to be solved is the high cost of textbooks, inclusive access programs and OER adoption are just two competing approaches to solving the problem.

      There was an interesting example of this during a short conference on digital textbooks, back in late 2014. Cindy Ives interim VP Academic at Athabasca (!) presented the etext pilot project in partnership with publishers. Ives’s approach was quite pragmatic and there’s nothing wrong with doing a pilot project on something like this. By that time, Ives was already involved in OER projects. It still struck a chord with those of us who care about OER, including Éric Francoeur who took an active part in the event and did work to create a free textbook through international and interlinguistic collaboration.

      To me, a key notion from the ‘r’ in “OER” is the distinction with those content bundles we still call “textbooks”. Sure, it’s already in the 5-R model. But the “Remix” idea in music is to a large extent about unbundling.

    1. Encourage researchers not to transfer the copyright on their research outputs before publication.

      This statement is more generally applicable than just to TDM. Besides, "Encourage" is too weak a word here, and from a societal perspective, it would be far better if researchers were to retain their copyright (where it applies), but make their copyrightable works available under open licenses that allow publishers to publish the works, and others to use and reuse it.

    1. If the space doctor’s ideas were wrong, your phone wouldn’t be able to tell where it was.

      If all of the space boats travel at the same velocity and the same distance from the Earth's surface, the time shift of the on-board clock due to relativity would be the same. The difference between the clocks would be almost the same. How would the trouble appear?
