    1. philosophers are fascinated by the human ability to acquire language. As-suming the relevant input


    1. I am manually installing dev keys into the oauth2_credentials table. Initially that failed because I omitted the scheme part of the auth server's url. It used to be separately configured but now it's part of the value in the authorization_server column.

           client_id     | client_secret    |  authorization_server
       9382000....000013 | Fg8W .... z755gp | https://hypothesis.instructure.com

    2. I'm running a dev instance on a Digital Ocean droplet, using nginx to reverse-proxy localhost:8001, and with SSL turned on in nginx. The cloud hosting enables me to share the setup with others. SSL makes Canvas less grumpy when talking to the LTI app.

      If you go this route, note that Pyramid's route_url will return non-https URLs. The fix for this -- or anyway, one fix -- is not in Pyramid or the LTI app, it's the last line in this snipped from nginx.conf:

       location / {
                  proxy_pass         http://app_servers;
                  proxy_redirect     off;
                  proxy_set_header   Host $host;
                  proxy_set_header   X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
                  proxy_set_header   X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
                  proxy_set_header   X-Forwarded-Host $server_name;
                  proxy_set_header   X-Forwarded-Proto https;

    1. This movement toward open and interoperable web annotation sets the stage for a democratization of the scholarly arts of close reading, line-by-line analysis, and accurate citation.

    1. Obesity was highly prevalent among the study sample; 64.6% of females and 41.2% of males were obese according to Polynesian cutoffs (BMI ≥ 32 kg/m2). Females were less likely than males to have hypertension (31.7% vs. 36.7%) but equally likely to have diabetes (17.8% vs. 16.4%).

    2. Obesity = BMI >32 kg/m2, hypertension = systolic blood pressure ≥140 ...

    1. First and foremost, that we make groups a first-class object exposed by the API. And second, that most (but not necessarily all) access to annotations is mediated through groups.


    1. make

      Now on Ubuntu 16.

      Installed yarn like so:

      npm install -g yarn

      At which point make complains:

      The engine "node" is incompatible with this module. Expected version ">=4.4 <5 || >=6.3".

      The node package with Ubuntu 16 is 4.2.6, so I had to upgrade node to get make to work.

      This in turn seemed to require:

      sudo npm rebuild node-sass --force

      NPM "I sure hope you know what you're doing."

      Me "Um, not really."

      Seems to have worked.

      Now on node 6.11.1, npm 3.10.10, yarn 0.27.5

      Nope, that forced update was a bad idea. Starting from scratch after the node upgrade ... ok, that worked.

    1. You should have Node v4.x installed.

      Is this still true? On a fresh rebuild of h, client, and browser-extension it seemed that node 6.x is needed, at least by yarn for the client build.

    1. <meta name = "DC.Relation.IsPartOf" content = "http://foo.bar.org/abc/proceedings/1998/">

      This, in conjuction with a chapter or chapter or section identifier in dc.identifier, appears to be just what we've been reaching for w/respect to syndication of annotations across the OER landscape.

      For an ebook it might be:

      <meta name="dc.relation.ispartof" content="isbn:‎978-3-16-148410-0">
      <meta name="dc.identifier" content="chapter2">

      For an OER text it might be (OpenStax example)

      <meta name="dc.relation.ispartof" content="https://cnx.org/contents/GFy_h8cu@10.117:agVo2CPX@12/The-Science-of-Biology">
      <meta name="dc.identifier" content="chapter1/section1">

    1. using an HTML meta tag to identify annotation preferences

      This is just a back-of-the-napkin sketch of an idea, not a formal proposal.

    1. Early results from 2017 suggest the individual market is stabilizing and insurers in this market are regaining profitability. Insurer financial results show no sign of a market collapse

    1. searching for a solution strategy is an extra burden on top of applying that strategy. We can therefore accelerate learning by giving learners worked examples that show them a problem and a detailed step-by-step solution, followed by a series of faded examples.

    2. the Japanese drew inspiration from Deming's ideas on continuous improvement in manufacturing, while the adoption of code review over the last 15 years has done more to improve everyday programming than any number of books or websites. But this kind of feedback isn't part of teaching culture in the US, the UK, Canada, or Australia. There, what happens in the classroom stays in the classroom: teachers don't watch each other's lessons on a regular basis, so they can't borrow each other's good ideas. The result is that every teacher has to invent teaching on their own.

    3. Our experience, and some recent research findings, lead us to believe that taking notes collaboratively helps learning even more [Orndorff2015],

    4. Watching instructors make mistakes shows learners that it's all right to make mistakes of their own. Most people model the behavior of their teachers: if the instructor isn't embarrassed about making and talking about mistakes, learners will be more comfortable doing so too.

    5. First, as noted in Motivation, most people don't actually want to program: they want to build a website or check on zoning regulations, and programming is just a tax they have to pay along the way

    1. A person's mindset can be shaped by subtle cues. For example, if a child is told, "You did a good job, you must be very smart," they are likely to develop a fixed mindset. If on the other hand they are told, "You did a good job, you must have worked very hard," they are likely to develop a growth mindset, and subsequently achieve more

    1. CORRECTION: This story has been corrected to reflect that CIT Bank, successor to OneWest after a 2015 merger, was the entity that filed foreclosure proceedings against Ossie Lofton over a 27-cent payment error. The story has also been revised to clarify that there were two separate foreclosure proceedings against Lofton. At the time the second foreclosure was filed in 2016, Mnuchin had sold his stake in OneWest and was on the board of CIT.

    1. Hypothesis annotations of a PDF can be centralized, no matter where the article is hosted or whether it’s a local copy

      Centralization and decentralization are slippery terms. I would rather say that Hypothesis can unify a set of annotations across a family of representations of the "same" work. Some members of that family might be HTML pages, others might be PDFs hosted on the web or kept locally.

      It's true that when Hypothesis is used to create and view such annotations, they are "centralized" in the Hypothesis service. But if someone else stands up an instance of Hypothesis, that becomes a separate pool of annotations. Likewise, we at Hypothesis have planned for, and expect to see, a world in which non-Hypothesis-based implementations of standard annotation capability will host still other separate pools of annotations.

      So you might issue three different API queries -- to Hypothesis, to a Hypothesis-based service, and to a non-Hypothesis-based service -- for a PDF fingerprint or a DOI. Each of those services might or might not internally unify annotations across a family of "same" resources. If you were to then merge the results of those three queries, you'd be an annotation aggregator -- the moral equivalent of what Radio UserLand, Technorati, and other blog aggregators did in the early blogosphere.

    2. I’m much less committed to having one canonical “place” for annotations than Hypothesis is

      Hypothesis isn't committed to that either. The whole point of the newly-minted web annotation standard is to enable an ecosystem of interoperable annotation clients and servers, analogous to comparable ecosystems of email and web clients and servers.

    1. We develop tools and services that aid in Social Media verification. We look at verification from a journalistic and enterprise perspective.

    1. Simply rating an article as “credible” is not enough; we need to understand what parts of it are credible, how the conclusion about its credibility was reached, and how to communicate that credibility effectively.

      And we should be able to refer to those parts as standard first-class web resources!

    1. The North Carolina Republican Party actually sent out a press release boasting about how its efforts drove down African-American turnout in this election. 

      Key question: Did they "boast" or did they report a fact?

    1. API tokens

      This token enables an app to interact with the H service on behalf of a user, in the same way that the logged-in H client does.
