    1. Close to half of all Hypothesis annotations are private notes

      Given that the default behavior in Hypothesis is to post publicly, a ~50% opt-out rate seems like a pretty strong signal. I'd be curious to know what the opt-out rate would be if publishing defaulted to private notes rather than public annotations.

    1. Three Teacher’s Dilemma games

      Here's a document I wrote when I was working on peer-to-peer learning games in 2008.

      The figures in this section show off a variety of games structured to motivate peer-tutors to find the ZPD of their tutees, and picks appropriate challenges accordingly. The first is based on question difficulty and response accuracy, the second adds expectations about accuracy into the mix, and the third incorporates observed learning gains into the game.

    1. Researchers measure extreme poverty as living with less than 1.90$ per day.

      Definition of extreme poverty is <$1.90/day.

    2. People are considered to live in extreme poverty at a consumption (or income) level below 1.90 international-$ per day. International $ are adjusted for price differences between countries and for price changes over time (inflation).

      Definition of "extreme poverty."

    3. Therefore the series is poverty headcount (1.90$ per day) as far back as possible (1981) from the World Bank and all observations before 1980 are Bourguignon and Morrison (2002) 'share of the world population living in extreme poverty'.

      Describes how the definition of poverty varies on statistics prior to vs after 1980.

    1. in 2013, based on $1.9/Day, the World Total based on headcount (%) is 10.94.

    1. The chart also lists 1980, which is close to 1981. 55% live in poverty and 31.5% live in extreme poverty.

    2. Original source of the 1950 75% claim was the chart on pages 6-7. Incorrect, in that 75% was an approximation of the 71.9% statistic in the second column, but this was actually poverty and not extreme poverty, which was only 54.8%.

    1. At first, the progress was steady: in 1950 75% of the world were still living in extreme poverty. But today, those living in extreme poverty are now less than 10%.

      Note that this article was published in 2017, so "today" presumably refers to 2016/2017.

    1. Users will not be able to do actions on items (such as “Add To Cart”), but they still get a solid browsing experience.

      Seems like more than a minor drawback for an e-commerce site.

    1. If an annotated page or the text that was annotated disappears, it can be retrieved from an archive and its annotations can attach to the archival copy.

      In addition to snapshotting the URL of the document on which the annotations are being added, it might be worth also snapshotting the hyp.is or via.hypothes.is URL that displays the document with public annotations.

    2. Archive annotated pages

      Very nice!
