    1. Evaluating poetry by heritage

      தண்ணீரும் காவிரியே தார்வேந்தன் சோழனே மண்ணாவ துஞ்சோழ மண்டலமே - பெண்ணாவாள் அம்பொற் சிலம்பி யரவிந்தத் தாளணியுஞ் செம்பொற் சிலம்பே சிலம்பு.

      பொருள் :-

      வற்றாதது காவிரி ஆறு. சோழமன்னனே மன்னருள் சிறந்தோன். சோழநாடே நிலவளம் மிகுந்தது. அம்பர் என்னும் கிராமத்தில் வாழும் சிலம்பியே பெண் என்று சொல்லத்தக்கவள் ஆவாள்.

    1. Every note is only an element which receives its quality only from the network of links and back-links within the system.

      Every element receives its value based on the network of links and connections it has with other elements. This is just as true for ideas on index cards in a zettelkasten as it is for people within a society.

      idea/index card:zettelkasten :: person:society

      What other elements in complex systems is this analogy true for? Is it a truism for all elements in complex systems? What other examples can we come up with?

    2. Possibility of linking (Verweisungsmöglichkeiten). Since all papers have fixed numbers, you can add as many references to them as you may want. Central concepts can have many links which show on which other contexts we can find materials relevant for them.

      Continuing on the analogy between addresses for zettels/index cards and for people, the differing contexts for cards and ideas is similar to the multiple different publics in which people operate (home, work, school, church, etc.)

      Having these multiple publics creates a variety of cross links within various networks for people which makes their internal knowledge and relationships more valuable.

      As societies grow the number of potential interconnections grows as well. Compounding things the society doesn't grow as a homogeneous whole but smaller sub-groups appear creating new and different publics for each member of the society. This is sure to create a much larger and much more complex system. Perhaps it's part of the beneficial piece of the human limit of memory of inter-personal connections (the Dunbar number) means that instead of spending time linearly with those physically closest to us, we travel further out into other spheres and by doing so, we dramatically increase the complexity of our societies.

      Does this level of complexity change for oral societies in pre-agrarian contexts?


      What would this look like mathematically and combinatorially? How does this effect the size and complexity of the system?


      How can we connect this to Stuart Kauffman's ideas on complexity? (Picking up a single thread creates a network by itself...)

    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2021, December 18). One thing I keep coming back to in my thoughts is the formerly respected scientists who completely lost their way in this pandemic. Is there something we could be teaching young researchers that would help minimise this in future? Are there norms of science we could strengthen?

    1. In order to truly have checks and balances, we should not have the same people setting the agendas of big tech, research, government and the non-profit sector. We need alternatives. We need governments around the world to invest in communities building technology that genuinely benefits them, rather than pursuing an agenda that is set by big tech or the military. Contrary to big tech executives’ cold-war style rhetoric about an arms race, what truly stifles innovation is the current arrangement where a few people build harmful technology and others constantly work to prevent harm, unable to find the time, space or resources to implement their own vision of the future.

      She's talking about monopolies here. How can we break the monopolies of big tech?

      Here again is an example of the extreme power of granting corporations the ability to be protected as "people".

    1. And the well-known jurist Jacques Cujas stated that ‘hee is a Learned Man non qui multa legit sed qui can fitly turne to Authors et use them according to his occasions. Non qui multa memoria teneat sed qui optima in libris optimis posset inve-nire’ (he is a learned man not the one who reads a number of books but the one who can fitly turn to authors and use them according to his occasion. [He is a learned man] not the one who keeps in mind a number of things but the one who can find the best passages in the best books).21

    1. தத்துவ அறிஞன் கலைஞன் என்றால் வரும் காலம் அவனை கண்டுகொள்ளும் என்ற நிச்சயம் ஏது, இவ்வாறான கேள்விகள் மூலம் அனைத்தையும் விலக்கி ஏதுமில்லா வெளியில் இருந்துகொண்டிருந்தேன். பின்பு ஓரிடத்தில் ரமண மஹரிஷியின் ஒரு மேற்கோள் படித்தேன்- “How do you treat others?” “There are no others” அனைத்துமாதல் என்பது எவ்வளவு மகத்தானது. முன்பு நீங்கள் சொன்ன ஒரு கதை நினைவுக்கு வந்தது. தன் வயலின் மேல் ஒரு கொக்கு அமர்ந்த போது உடல் விதிர்த்த விவசாயி அந்த வயலாகவும் கொக்காகவும் கூட இருக்கிறான். அனைத்தையும் தானாக்கி தன்னை அனைத்துமாக்கி என்றுமிருத்தலே விடை. வெண்முரசு என்றும் இருக்கும். அதை இயற்றியதால் நீங்களும்வாசிப்பதால் நானும் கூட.நன்றி.

    1. How people use to write was on Papyrus which was made out of hands and other natural things you find in nature. People also wrote with black and red ink. And they would make those into scrolls. What is papyrus?

    1. The release of Capybara 2.0.0 removed the wait_until method from the API. This seems to have frustrated a few people,
    2. Now after a long debugging session, our developer has found the timing issue. They now realize that there is a wait_until method in the API, and immediately think that, "hey, this sounds like what I need!"
    3. Its existence confuses people into thinking that it is necessary, when in fact it isn’t.

    1. இவர்களில் இஸ்லாமியர் தங்கள் தலையில் கட்டும் துவாலையால் கொல்லப்படுபவரின் கழுத்தை பின்னாலிருந்து இறுக்குவார்கள். முன்னால் நின்று பேசிக்கொண்டிருப்பவர் அவர் காலை பிடித்து முன்னால் இழுப்பார். இந்துக்கள் பட்டுநூலை பயன்படுத்துவார்கள். ஒரு நிமிடத்தில் கொலை நிகழ்ந்துவிடும். குருதி சிந்தப்படுவதில்லை. உடல் புதைக்கப்படும்.  ஆகவே தடையங்களே இருக்காது.

    1. customers

      'users' or 'citizens' or just 'everybody affected by the outcome of the process' would be better than 'customers' here IMHO.

    1. it is not about the product

      it is not about the product, but about the process—Christopher R. Rogers

      In humanity there is no product. We're collectively about the process.

      Similar to the idea of human "being" not human "doing".

      Sadly corporations have been exerting power over people and turning us into products or inputs in their processes and dramatically devaluing and erasing our humanity.

    1. As we are drained of our “inner repertory of dense cultural inheritance,” Foreman concluded, we risk turning into “‘pancake people’—spread wide and thin as we connect with that vast network of information accessed by the mere touch of a button.”

      I'd prefer to be a "cake person".

    1. Companies do tend to use scripts but the good ones will allow their staff to stray off the script once they are experienced enough to do so as long as it benefits the customer and the company, usually this involves fixing the problem more quickly.
    2. I find most tech support is filled with inexperienced and frustrated staff who just run off a script. They're not paid well. They are Tier One support to filter out most of the incoming calls. Tech support is designed in tiers.
    3. Tech support works with scripts. Just get to know these scripts by heart and answer all questions from the script you can in one long sentence, before they ask it. Like in "Hi I have a problem with this and that...I have restarted the router, I have checked the cables, the red light is on, the green light is off, not other lights are blinking......etc.etc.etc. That way the person at the other end of the line can just go click-click-click and you'll be 10 steps further in their script in 5 seconds.
    4. So, +1 for play ball. Level 1 is supposed to filter out all simple issues (and once upon a time, you'll have forgotten something, happens to all of us), and they are not supposed to be creative. They get a script that has been refined over and over. Learn the scripts, prepare the answers, and you'll get to Level 2 more quickly than with any other method.
    5. Very often the first people you get through to on tech support lines are reading from a script.
    6. They have to ask you the dumb questions, either because their employer demands they do, or sometimes because their computer system doesn't let them get to the next part of the script unless they play ball.
