    1. Best Bible Note-Taking System: Jonathan Edwards's Miscellanies

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqq-4-LiFVs

      Overview of Jonathan Edwards Miscellanies system along with a a few wide-margin bibles. Everhard apparently hasn't heard of the commonplace concept, though I do notice that someone mentions the zettelkasten system in the comments.

    1. Most of this is material I've seen or heard in other forms in the past. It's relatively well reviewed and summarized here though, but it's incredibly dense to try to pull out, unpack and actually use if one were coming to it as a something new.

      3 Productivity hacks

      • Zen Meditation (Zen Mind, Beginners Mind by Shunryū Suzuki
      • Research Process -- Annotations and notes, notecards
      • Rigorous exercise routine -- plateau effect

      The Zen meditation hack sounds much in the line of advice to often get away from what you're studing/researching and to let the ideas stew for a bit before coming back to them. It's the same principle as going for walks frequently heard from folks or being a flâneur. (cross reference Nassim Nicholas Taleb et al.) The other version of this that's similar are the diffuse modes of learning (compared with focused modes) described in learning theory. (Examples in work of Barbara Oakley and Terry Sejnowski in https://www.coursera.org/learn/learning-how-to-learn)

      I've generally come to the idea that genius doesn't exist myself. Most of it distills down to use of tools like commonplace books.

      Perhaps worth looking into some of the following to see what, if anything, is different than prior version of the commonplace book tradition:

    1. With the web API, you can only pull data at rest, meaning you'll need to sync your Sense to the Fitbit app before you can fetch the data. The endpoint you'd use to fetch this data is the Intraday Heart Rate Time Series endpoints. If you'd like to test this endpoint, you can do it with the Fitbit API Explorer.    If you're looking to fetch real-time/raw data with 1sec detail level, you'll want to use the Device API and SDK to create a clock face. You can get further assistance from other developers and our moderators in the SDK forum here.

    1. Wear OS is a smartwatch operating system created and maintained by Google. It was announced on March 18, 2014 as Android Wear, only to be rebranded as Wear OS on March 15, 2018. Wear OS is an Android-based operating system that receives semi-regular feature and security updates, just like the version of Android that powers billions of smartphones around the world.

      Wear OS description

    1. The data is queried directly from your Fitbit account and inserted into Google Fit. To do this, you must first log in with your Fitbit account and give FitToFit access to the data that you want to transfer. You will then be asked to connect to your Google account, into which the data from Fitbit should be inserted.

      Cannot directly interface with fitbit with Google fit, can only export processed data from fit bit and send to google fit...

    1. The Google Fit APIs for Android are part of Google Play services. The Google Fit APIs are supported on Android 4.1 (API level 16) and higher. Using these APIs, your app can do the following: Read near-real-time and historic data, including data from Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices. Record activities. Associate data with a session. Set fitness goals.

      Google Fit API for Android allows raw data access!!!

    1. Sensors API

      Fit bit's sensor API... only preprocessed data and not raw. Fit bit does not use Android API for sensor access..

    1. As mentioned before, sensors such as the Empatica provide some raw data (E.g. raw PPG), although the cost is very high (around $ 1700 US). Moreover, smartwatches such as the Moto360 or the LG G Watch R can be programmed to provide HR data. However, you should consider that this is preprocessed data (from manufacturers) and we just have access to the processed data (not the raw PPG). Therefore, if you wanted to make things such as Heart Rate Variability analysis, this approach is not highly accurate. I have been working with the Polar Chest Band (H7) and it seems that we can access both HR and RR-interval data with an Android app (currently working in an APK to extend it in our PhysioVR framework).

      Thread on finding devices that provide raw data

    1. Access raw sensor databookmark_border Table of contentsList available data sourcesAdd a listenerRemove a listener The Sensors API lets you read raw sensor data in your app in real time. Use this API to do the following: List data sources that are available on the device and on companion devices. Register listeners to receive raw sensor data. Unregister listeners so that they no longer receive raw sensor data.

      Google fit allows access to raw sensor data

    1. Depends on vendor, it would be possible to access the raw ppg signal of wear os sensor, should you have access to sensor hardware driver. Some researchers did analysed PPG raw signal from Huawei watch 2 and here is the paper.

      android /wear OS allows for raw PPG data access, but need drivers...

    1. Each Fitbit device includes a variety of hardware sensors that have been exposed through our Sensor APIs.

      No info on PPG sensors... not accessible through API?

    1. Unfortunately this is not available via an API at this time.

    1. Third party apps do not have direct access to the heart rate sensor.

      Thread that explains how to access heart rate data by simulating a workout... No direct way to access sensor

    1. You can use HealthKit and have your app request access to the Blood Oxygen data (HKQuantityTypeIdentifierOxygenSaturation)You can find out more about the HealthKit framework here: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/healthkit

      Response from Apple employee when asked about retrieving raw PPG data.. Need to use HealthKit and can only get processed data

    1. as far as I know there is no way to access the raw PPG from the watch

      No way to access raw PPG data from apple watch... this guy has an app that does some processing on the data from apple..

    1. A Flutter plugin to access the PPG sensor.

    1. 7 This answer is not useful Show activity on this post. I spent some time figuring out if it's feasible to get the raw PPG signal from android API, and contrary to what some may say, it is definitely possible to do that. And here is how to do it:

    1. 7:09 - Discussion of a custom template for use cases; this sounds a bit like some customization similar to Open Scholar on Drupal

      • Uptick with faculty looking for tools to be online. They've gone from 6 or 7 in past years to 17
      • Sharing resources with colleagues within the department or at other institutions

      Shannon Hauser, University of Mary Washington

      • They've seen a disconnect between their LMS (Canvas) and Domains with the LMS winning out

      Colin Madland, Trinity Western University

      • Didn't have a culture of online teaching
      • Fine arts department started tinkering and others within the department are using that template. They spent some time and thought in the Summer and that made it easier for them in the fall.

      Jim Groom talked about a "motherblog" (a planet made via RSS). How can we center the idea of a webmention hub to do this?

      There was a lot of reversion to what was comfortable in the move to all online pedagogy. Professors were comfortable with lectures, so they stuck with that. There wasn't an emphasis on actual learning.

      I should note Glenn Zucman's art work to Colin to pass along to their art department. There could be a community of use cases that might help each other experiment and expand on their ideas.

      Library Futures, Jennie Rose Halperin @Library_futures @little_wow

      Idea of artificial scarcity being imposed on digital objects is a damaging thing for society.

      Ideas to explore:

      Libraries as a free resource could be reframed as a human right within a community.

      Librarians as local community tummelers around information.

    1. Manifold – Building an Open Source Publishing Platform

      Zach Davis and Matthew Gold

      Re-watching after the conference.

      Manifold

      Use case of showing the process of making the book. The book as a start to finish project rather than just the end product.

      They built the platform while eating their own cooking (or at least doing so with nearby communities).

      Use for this as bookclubs. Embedable audio and video possibilities.

      Use case where people have put journals on the platform and they've grown to add meta data and features to work for that.

      They're allowing people to pull in social media pieces into the platform as well. Perhaps an opportunity to use Webmentions?

      They support epub.

      It can pull in Gutenberg texts.

      Jim Groom talks about the idea of almost using Manifold as an LMS in and of itself. Centering the text as the thing around which we're gathering.

      CUNY Editions of standard e-books with additional resources.Critical editions.

      Using simple tools like Google Docs and then ingest them into Manifold using a YAML file.

      TEI, LaTeX formats and strategies for pulling them in. (Are these actually supported? It wasn't clear.)

      Reclaim Cloud has a container that will run Manifold.

      Zach is a big believer in UX and design as the core of their product.

      Ed's 5 Big NOTs of Teaching

      • Knowledge is NOT simply content
      • A textbook is NOT the only perspective
      • A course is NOT an isolated context
      • The teacher is NOT the sole authority
      • Students are NOT empty vessels

      Hegarty's 8 Attributes of Open Pedagogy (see reference below, which I'd like to read).

      "It was you, me, and Mike Caulfield." - Jim Groom (Don't we all wish we could say this...)

      I'd watched this live during the conference, but with morning duties, it was definitely worth watching again, especially for the student project diagrams at the end.

    1. A circular electronics system - one in which resources are not extracted, used and wasted, but re-used in countless ways - creates decent, sustainable jobs and retains more value in the industry.

      This sentence caught my eye because it seems like an obvious solution to reduce the amount of e-waste and materials used to create new products. It is upsetting to see that many people resort to being wasteful and using up the world's resources at such a quick rate before thinking about reusing and remodeling what we have already created.
