    1. BlackRock employs a stable of former policymakers, underscoring the importance the company occupies in both financial and policymaking ecosystems, in something akin to a shadow government entity.[157] Good government groups have documented 118 examples of “revolving door” activity by the company—cases in which a government official joined BlackRock’s roster, or vice versa.[158] In one particularly troubling example of how Washington’s revolving door operates, in 2017, a former BlackRock executive was put in charge of reviewing the FSOC’s work for the Treasury Department.[159] Unsurprisingly, the Department’s conclusion was that FSOC should “prioritize its efforts to address risks to financial stability through a process that emphasizes an activities-based or industry-wide approach,” the company’s preferred position.[160] This conclusion all but ensures that BlackRock will not be designated for greater regulation by the FSOC under the Trump administration.

      To Big To Fail? Above The Law? Shadow Government?

      The term "shadow government" comes up often when investigating Revolving Door partnerships between corporations and former government policymakers. One particular public corporation, BlackRock Investments is the poster child of revolving door activity and comparisons to a shadow government.

      BlackRock is front and center in the manipulation of todays Real Estate bubble.

      BlackRock should be marketed as;*The Largest Asset Manager and Keeper of The Neo-liberal Flame; We Kill Children to Make You Money and We Enjoy Doing It!*

    1. The operative content object is the content object to which a request is directed – this is the content object that the user specifically wants, and that the request primarily operates on.
    1. urql stays true to server data and doesn’t provide functions to manage local state like Apollo Client does. In my opinion, this is perfectly fine as full-on libraries to manage local state in React are becoming less needed. Mixing server-side state and local state seems ideal at first (one place for all states) but can lead to problems when you need to figure out which data is fresh versus which is stale and when to update it.
    1. On the difference for writing for one's self and for others. Of course there's also the need to be able to re-decifer one's notes again in the future. It may be best to keep more detailed for your future self as if you're writing for the public.

      I like the idea of distance in "communication space" which comes up in the comments. This is related to context collapse and shared contexts which are often too-important in our communication with regard to being understood in the far future.

    1. Forty years ago, Michel Foucault observed in a footnote that, curiously, historians had neglected the invention of the index card. The book was Discipline and Punish, which explores the relationship between knowledge and power. The index card was a turning point, Foucault believed, in the relationship between power and technology.

      This piece definitely makes an interesting point about the use of index cards (a knowledge management tool) and power.

      Things have only accelerated dramatically with the rise of computers and the creation of data lakes and the leverage of power over people by Facebook, Google, Amazon, et al.

    2. In 1791, France’s revolutionary government issued the world’s first national cataloging code, calling for playing cards to be used for bibliographical records.

      Reference for this as well?

    3. Linnaeus experimented with a few filing systems. In 1752, while cataloging Queen Ludovica Ulrica’s collection of butterflies with his disciple Daniel Solander, he prepared small, uniform sheets of paper for the first time. “That cataloging experience was possibly where the idea for using slips came from,” Charmantier explained to me. Solander took this method with him to England, where he cataloged the Sloane Collection of the British Museum and then Joseph Banks’s collections, using similar slips, Charmantier said. This became the cataloging system of a national collection.

      Description of the spread of the index card idea.

    1. Linnaeus had to manage a conflict between the need to bring information into a fixed order for purposes of later retrieval, and the need to permanently integrate new information into that order, says Mueller-Wille. “His solution to this dilemma was to keep information on particular subjects on separate sheets, which could be complemented and reshuffled,” he says.

      Carl Linnaeus created a method whereby he kept information on separate sheets of paper which could be reshuffled.

      In a commonplace-centric culture, this would have been a fascinating innovation.

      Did the cost of paper (velum) trigger part of the innovation to smaller pieces?

      Did the de-linearization of data imposed by codices (and previously parchment) open up the way people wrote and thought? Being able to lay out and reorder pages made a more 3 dimensional world. Would have potentially made the world more network-like?

      cross-reference McLuhan's idea about our tools shaping us.

    1. Against Canvas

      I love that he uses this print of Pablo Picasso's Don Quixote to visually underline this post in which he must feel as if he's "tilting at windmills".

    2. All humanities courses are second-class citizens in the ed-tech world.

      And worse, typically humans are third-class citizens in the ed-tech world.

    1. Why isn’t there anything on our class’s Canvas page? Because Canvas and Blackboard are evil and must be destroyed. So-called “learning management software” is very possibly the worst software ever created by anyone for any purpose, and I will not add to the store of suffering in the world by making use of it. I explain in more detail my objections to Canvas here.

      Awesome AND true.

    1. Stay engaged. As mentioned above, you are expected to check your GVSU email twice daily, read new posts on CampusWire twice daily, contribute to the discussion board daily, and make at least two significant contributions to CampusWire per week. Make daily engagement with the course a habit, and don’t take days off (unless it’s a weekend and you have all your work done).
    2. Budget your time. MTH 124 is a 5-credit course with no meetings, so you will need to plan on spending about 15-20 hours per week doing mindful work. That’s 3-4 hours per weekday if you choose not to work on weekends. If you are taking other courses or have job of family responsibilities, you’ll need to think about where to put these hours in your daily and weekly schedules. In my experience, the #1 reason students don’t succeed in online courses is overcommitment and not managing time well.
    1. I particularly enjoyed the California water commons, with its quiet nod to Elinor Ostrom’s original post-graduate research on emergent cooperation between county water-boards.

      A quiet nod here in it's own right. Now I want to dig into Elinor Ostrom's research and work.

    1. I can refer to a section of page in a book by using #(booknr)p(pagenr)(section), for example #8p113a. There are four sections in my journals: A (upper left), B (down left), C (upper right), D (down right).

      An interesting page/section reference method.

    1. We still do not understand how information practices from the worlds of learning, finance, industry, and administration cross-pollinated. From the fourteenth century onward, accountants developed complex instructions for note-taking to describe holdings and transactions, as well for the recording of numbers and calculations. By the seventeenth century, merchants, and indeed ship captains, engineers, and state administrators, were known to travel with trunks of memoranda, massive inventories, scrap books, and various ledgers and log books that mixed descriptive notes and numbers. By the eighteenth century, tables and printed forms cut down on the need for notes and required less description and more systematic numerical notes. Notaries also were master information handlers, creating archives for their legal and financial documents and cross-referencing catalogue systems.

      I'm noticing no mention here of double entry book keeping or the accountant's idea of waste books.

      There's also no mention of orality or memory methods either.

    2. Humanists had the tools and even the concepts to invent the cross-referenced thematic library catalogue, but they did not do so. We do not know why it took several hundred years and the Italian director of the British Museum, Antonio Panizzi, to create a truly modern reference catalogue through his “Ninety-One Cataloguing Rules” in 1841.

      Origin of the modern reference catalogue...

    3. Why did a figure such as Leibniz fail to use his own tools? Perhaps messiness was the source of his creativity. This is a fact of intellectual originality with which Google must still grapple—libraries, after all, allow for the type of manageable disorder which is often the spark of creativity.

      Manageable disorder, messiness, and even chaos can be the source of boundless creativity.

      There's an idea in complexity theory that the most interesting things happen at the edge of chaos.

    4. Ideally, skilled readers organized notes into personal “arks of study,” or data chests. Vincent Placcius’s De arte excerpendi contains an engraving of a note cabinet, or scrinia literaria, in which notes are attached to hooks and hung on bars according to thematic organization, as well as various drawers for the storage of note paper, hooks, and possibly writing supplies. Both Placcius and later Leibniz built such contraptions, though none survives today. While these organizational tools cannot be directly linked to modern computers, it is difficult not to compare them. Placcius’s design looks strikingly like the old punch-card computation machines that date from the 1880s, and the first mainframes, such as the 1962 IBM 7090.

      "arks of study" being used as early data chests or stores is a fascinating conceptualization

    5. In effect, Too Much to Know is a reference book about reference books, containing chapters on early “information management,” note-taking, reference genres and “finding devices,” compiling, and the impact of reference books.

      I love all of these various topics.

    6. The humanist remedy for information overload was to produce an unprecedented number of manuals about how to read books. They outlined what Blair calls the four S’s of early modern information management: storage, sorting, selection, summary.

      I'd love to have a list of these and some of their similarities. What would oral cultures have done? How would/did they manage their overflow of information, besides overwriting the new/improved and forgetting the old/unuseful?

    1. Sam Bowman. (2021, January 25). If the govt can’t keep a few thousand people fed in hotel quarantine, how exactly was it supposed to provide for fifteen million pensioners self-isolating in Great Barrington-style ‘focused protection’ while the virus was spreading across the rest of the population?

    1. the three types of power commonly discussed in management theory: power-over, power-with, and power-to. These three types of power were first identified by the Mother of Modern Management, Mary Parker Follett. You may also recognize her as the person who coined the term “win-win.” Here are the three types of power: Power-over is extractive. Power-over is extracted from other people, the natural world, etc. Power-over means getting more of the pie. Power-with is gained when we work together, i.e, collective action. Power-to is generative. Power-to is the power we have to create new things. Power-to means making the pie bigger. 

      An interesting break down of power.

    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. The same is true with my time. So I started blocking all 24 hours of my time (mental breaks, yoga workouts, prepping dinner, sleep, everything) into my digital calendar. There is no time unaccounted for.

    1. This technology has come into action with an aim to reduce human power and streamline the warehouse operation more effectively. To the fact, in the current scenario, RFID has become one of the most important tools in the supply chain manager.

      Thanks to RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology, as it is changing the way of tracking inventory by making the process speedy. It is one of the most competent ways to track items and transfer the data.

    1. Assessing Open Source Journal Management Software

      this is a good start of a mega analysis of all journal management platforms, isn't it?!

    1. Yes, Virginia, PMs Are Responsible for Accessibility

      Link to Session

      Angela Hooker, Microsoft

      Why build in a11y from the start?

      • Much easier / less "expensive" than adding it after the fact.
      • PMs are expected to set expectations and manage scope. Set the expectation from the beginning that team delivers accessible product.
      • Consider budget, timeline, people, & other resources. The design phase is "too late."

      Getting support from leadership

      • Talk about ROI & $8+ trillion in disposable income that people with disabilities have worldwide
      • Helps the org be more competitive
      • Show them how inaccessible content hurts. Demo use of product with a screenreader with no visuals, ask them to navigate with keyboard only. If possible, have a person with access needs do that demo.

      Include multiple accessibility reviews in your timeline

      • Team should check their work as they go along

      Choose the standards and level of compliance you'll achieve

      • Compliance and accessibility are not the same. You can conform to WCAG 100% but be unusable for people with certain disabilities
      • If project is used globally, consider laws worldwide. Some countries require specific documentation & standards will vary

      Put accessibility requirements in contracts with outside vendors

      • Be specific about the standards they need to meet
      • Ask for proof they can produce accessible work

      Carefully choose the tech you'll use to build your project

      • If you don't have a choice in what tech you'll use, see if team can fix those a11y issues. If it would expand scope or timeline to do so, flag as risk for leaderships

      Document all your team's work

      • Good to have on hand for showing "good faith effort" to be accessible
      • Prepare a general statement about project's a11y status.
      • Document known a11y issues and create a roadmap for resolving

      Get training for your team

      • Pointing toward info on the web is risky, as there is lots of misinformation. Start with info from W3C a11y curriculum.

      How do you coach your team and oversee their work?

      • Don't make it about any one person. Discourage things like "if we can't make you happy, we can't move forward." It's not about you being happy, it's about putting out the most usable and successful product you can!
      • Publicly praise team members as a way to motivate them to prioritize a11y in the long run

      Written content comes first

      • This is the easiest to remediate, so get this out of the way.
      • Ask people with cognitive impairments to read through with you to find out where things might not be clear

      Working with designers

      • Annotate design docs to indicate to engineering where they'll need to consider a11y
      • Review mockups & wireframes for missing a11y considerations so eng can raise concerns or questions
      • Start with user personas based on people with disabilities
      • Invest in usability testing at several points during project build

      What if you're updating a legacy project?

      • Start small
      • Have an auditor review for a11y and create a plan to give team "quick wins." Create roadmap for remaining items.
      • Talk to team responsible for product to find out what questions/concerns they have
      • Get training & other needed resources for team

    1. It is much easier to track what is going on within the activity. Instead of transporting additional state via ctx, you expose the outcome via an additional end event.

      Note: It's only super easy to see what's going on if you have the benefit of a diagram.

    1. NOTE: Your strategy should be supported using project management best-practices found within the Management Practices. These practices have been developed by industry, spending billions of dollars each year in projects. Of course, they would want their projects to succeed.

    1. Establish structured daily check-ins: Many successful remote managers establish a daily call with their remote employees.

      make sure there is space during standup for chit-chat.

    1. The great thing about working with reinteractive is you get to work directly with the developers, which is a huge plus. As a technical founder, I find proxying through a project manager adds unnecessary layers of complexity and creates opportunity for human error.
    1. Encapsulation is used to hide the values or state of a structured data object inside a class, preventing direct access to them by clients in a way that could expose hidden implementation details or violate state invariance maintained by the methods.
    1. DSLs can be problematic for the user since the user has to manage state (e.g. am I supposed to call valid? first or update_attributes?). This is exactly why the #validate is the only method to change state in Reform.
    2. The reason Reform does updating attributes and validation in the same step is because I wanna reduce public methods. This is to save users from having to remember state.

      I see what he means, but what would you call this (tag)? "have to remember state"? maybe "have to remember" is close enough

      Or maybe order is important / do things in the right order is all we need to describe the problem/need.

    1. One can now picture a future investigator in his laboratory. His hands are free, and he is not anchored. As he moves about and observes, he photographs and comments. Time is automatically recorded to tie the two records together. If he goes into the field, he may be connected by radio to his recorder. As he ponders over his notes in the evening, he again talks his comments into the record. His typed record, as well as his photographs, may both be in miniature, so that he projects them for examination.

      This is one of the most important aspects of the essay. Noting that he is continuously talking about the work of a scientist, he stresses the act of recording, of looking at reality. This is radically different from what Ahrens claims in his book "How to take Smart Notes", in which there is not a single hint to the fact that you must look through the window and not just into previous works.

    1. Using integrations with other tools in the product stack such as Jira and GitHub, progress on specific items can be viewed directly from the digital product roadmap, offering an accurate view of how well things are sticking to the schedule

      Why not just use built in tools in Jira and Github? Still struggling to see how roadmapping tool differs from, for example, Github project boards

    2. Translating these concepts into attractive visual product roadmaps that connect with a diverse set of internal stakeholders,

      In a small organization like Hypothesis, I'm not sure that a visually pretty roadmap is a pressing need. Willing to keep reading, but color me skeptical.

    1. There are lots of trees around us but we don’t know which one plant is harmful for us means a trigger to pollen allergy. Let’s know the pollen allergy symptoms which include sneezing, nasal congestion, wheezing etc. Don’t worry if you are suffering through this allergy, just stick to the allergy medications suggested by your doctor for better allergy management.

    1. Theemergence of the termcontent strategyitselfrepresents widespread recognition that componentcontent management was in great need of aroadmap.

      For me this is one of the key sentences of this paper. It is impossible to understand content strategy without taking component content management into consideration. For an academic approach to content strategy component content management is a key.

    2. In its most commondefinition, a genre is a rhetorical action that istypified and socially recognized based on recurrentsituations; members of organizations use genresfor specific communicative and collaborativepurposes [6], [7]

      This might be translated following the approach of semiotic practices defined by Fontanille et.al.

    1. "Organizational change management ensures that the new processes resulting from a project are actually adopted by the people who are affected.”

      Definition of change management

    1. React will update state throughout the user’s session. localStorage won’t change.When the user ends their session, save whatever the state is at that time to localStorage, making it available for hydrating in the next session.

      Is this safe/reliable to defer saving until then? What if browser crashes? I guess that's why onbeforeunload is needed. Hopefully onbeforeunload is reliable and can't be skipped (unless browser crashes?).

    2. So rather than continuously keeping localStorage in-sync with React state, let’s simply save state to localStorage whenever the user ends their session, either by leaving the app (‘unmounting’ the component) or refreshing the page.

    1. Microsoft says it will make changes in its new Productivity Score feature, including removing the ability for companies to see data about individual users, to address concerns from privacy experts that the tech giant had effectively rolled out a new tool for snooping on workers.

      It's great that MS has reacted so quickly to the outcry around the privacy of workers.

      I thought it would be super-interesting to see how academics might have responded to the idea of institutional administrators keeping tabs on the number of hours that they'd spent in meetings (via Teams), composing and reading emails (via Outlook), writing articles (via Word), and so on.

      And yet these would be the same academics who do this kind of monitoring of student work.

    1. Almost all interfaces today, with the exception of TheBrain visual user interface, are limited to organizing information into hierarchies, where a piece of information can only be categorized into one place. For simple applications this is fine, but for users engaging in more complex business processes, it is simply inadequate. A document will have a variety of different issues or people associated with it – with hierarchies one cannot show all these relationships without multiple copies of the information.

      Shelley Hayduk also identifies the issue that most information management software uses a file cabinet metaphor (i.e. hierarchy). This has the limitation that a piece of information can only be categorized in one place. For more complex things, this is inadequate.

    1. Imagine you have hundreds of tenants spread over a number of units, apartments, condominiums, etc. Now, can you remember each of them individually, whether each one of them has paid rentals? What is the payment period? What is the lease expiry date and much more? That’s complex, but possible when you have a Landlord Studio management app with you. With this app, you can;

    1. This conflicts in very basic ways with what other engineering disciplines expect. Toyota's stylists might be able to sell their renderings in art galleries, but you can't drive to work in one. In software, you can.

      I don't really understand the sentence. Does it mean that you can't really use a project's design until it's built, in classical engineering, while instead with software all that detailed design is actually the product?
