#Rationalism is a philosophical position or view that #reason is the source of knowledge.
Vernon J. #Bourke wrote that rationalism is defined as a methodology or a theory "in which the criterion of #truth is not sensory but intellectual and deductive."

Cant help but think that reading books is like having a superpower. By reading you effectively tap into the brains of all these very talented, intelligent, knowledgable and experienced awesome people who decided to share what they have learned.
I almost feel as if I am cheating when I read a new book, almost like some sort of analogue matrix... Arguably somewhat slower, error prone and unreliable yet... Cheating.
To all these hard working authors, writers and knowledge workers who enable me to cheat in life.
I am looking for #online training on #ethicsInTech or #aiEthics.
Level: postgraduate (or "second level": after Bachelor)
Workload: at least 100 hours!
This distance-taught programme looks impressive:
Programme Director: Professor @ShannonVallor
It also is very selective and expensive 😀
Harvard and LSE have interesting modules but i personally avoid business approaches.
Would you recommend another distance postgraduate #learning programme on #ethicsInTech or #aiEthics?

Aaaaand...back into the online course I've been taking to learn web development! I guess it's a good thing there's not a deadline because I keep taking really long breaks. 😂
I somehow managed to pass the HTML forms test even though it's been months since I've done HTML coding. Now I'm going to finish the HTML part of the course. 😄 I'm excited.

After being on the job market for close to 3 months now, it's with a sigh of relief and a rush of excitement I can finally see the full-time occupation of doing job interviews to an end.
Starting gently now in June, and full-time in September, I'm joining Ludenso as VP of Platform Engineering!
It's been a wild and educational ride, and I've met with so many interesting companies, but in the end, I chose to go with Ludenso for the ability it gives me to improve the fields of teaching and learning – especially in the classroom. Having a daughter who says she hates school is naturally a strong, personal motivation.
It's been a long time since I was as enthusiastic about work as I am now. I'm eagerly looking forward to the adventure this surely is going to be!

Hey everyone! In this video, I demonstrate a cool flashcard program I built using Python and the Tkinter library. It's a great way to learn and memorize programming terms or any other set of information.
The program randomly presents flashcards with terms on one side and their meanings on the other. You can flip the card to reveal the meaning, and if you already know the term, simply click the 'Known' button to remove it from the deck. It's a fun and interactive way to study!
I've uploaded the complete source code for this project on my GitHub repository, so you can check it out and try it yourself. Here's the link: https://github.com/raimoncoding/flashcard_programming
I hope you find this program interesting and useful. If you enjoy the video, please give it a thumbs up and consider subscribing to my channel for more programming projects and tutorials.
Thanks for watching, and happy learning!

The latest episode of my #podcast: Redefining Society is served… consume it while is still warm and crunchy 🎙️✨😬
#Book | Inside The #liberalarts: Critical Thinking And #citizenship | A Conversation With Author Jeffrey Scheuer
This Episode of Redefining Society Podcast is sponsored by: Bugcrowd, BLACKCLOAK, And Devo!!!
Get ready to dive deep into the fabric of society as we explore the future of #education on Redefining Society Podcast with your host, Marco Ciappelli. Today, we welcome Jeffrey Scheuer to discuss critical thinking, liberal arts, and the true meaning of citizenship.
Welcome to this thought-provoking episode of the Redefining Society Podcast with your host, Marco Ciappelli. Prepare to dive deep into a compelling conversation that investigates the very bedrock of society — education. Is there something fundamentally amiss with how we're imparting knowledge to the next generation? Are we teaching them how to learn and critically think about what they're #learning? Listen in as we explore these burning questions and more.
In this episode, Marco engages in a riveting conversation with Jeffrey Scheuer, the author of "Inside the Liberal Arts: Critical Thinking and Citizenship." A book that ambitiously endeavors to merge the realms of liberal arts, critical thinking, and citizenship into a comprehensive whole in just under 200 pages. Jeffrey takes on the challenge of explicating the elusive nature of liberal #arts, critical thinking, and their inherent connections, a task rarely undertaken in earnest.
As you listen, contemplate Marco's ethos: he's not here to provide definitive answers but to encourage his audience to ponder different perspectives and cultivate their own thoughts. In a world where the term 'liberal' has become so politically charged, Jeffrey offers clarity by tracing its roots back to ancient Rome. 'Liberal arts,' he posits, originally meant 'the skills of a free citizen of the Roman Republic,' and miraculously, still carries that connotation. It's about citizenship, about the transactions between the individual and the community, and this conversation delves into what it truly means to be a good citizen.
Today, in the age of information overload and evolving technological landscapes, are the education and media industries keeping pace? Are they fostering informed, enlightened citizens or merely consumers of information? What's the role of critical thinking in navigating the ceaseless waves of data and stimuli we encounter daily?
Join us as we discuss these fascinating topics and more. Let's redefine society together. If this conversation makes you think, Marco has done his job. Share your thoughts, spread the conversation, and make sure to subscribe to the Redefining Society Podcast for more insightful discussions. Remember, we're here not just to consume information, but to critically think, engage, and shape the world around us. Let's start the journey.

@chris_spackman I like to point out that a #learning curve has two portions. The ramp and the plateau.
For a #tool that needs to onboard casual users, you want an easy ramp (and therefore almost certainly a low plateau).
For a #tool you are going to spend a lifetime using, the ramp is irrelevant but the height of the plateau is paramount.
@stancarey Thank you. This is encouraging me to fight my own tendency to care at all whether something's "originally" a noun or a verb. Seems like completely wasted effort, when flipping them all around has been a natural feature of the language for centuries. #learning #StagnationEqualsDeath

Things that make me go hmmm.... https://blog.duolingo.com/pronounce-spanish-b-v/
I don't like disagreeing with experts, but the advice here of "just pronouncing" every v as a b despite people not being able hear the difference is terrible for my spelling memory.
In their English example "there" and "their"; I pronounce these words differently to aid with my spelling. No one notices anyway. So it's just for my own use. But recommending homophonic conformity seems incorrect.
“One important function of the baths in Roman society was their role as what we would consider a ‘branch library’ today.
Many in the general public did not have access to the grand libraries in Rome and so as a cultural institution the baths served as an important resource where the more common citizen could enjoy the luxury of books.”

Hello #Horrorhub & #mastodon my name is Darcy, and I’m your friend to the end 👻
I enjoy all things spooky and horror. Some of my favorite horror films include: The Ring, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Audition, The Orphanage, The Conjuring, Annabelle, X, and The Hills Have Eyes.
One of the greatest impediments of #learning is #teaching. Which is why, in the #qomenius approach to learning, we take teachers out of the equation, and let small groups of 4, 5 or 6 people learn "all by themselves".
The advantages are innumerous.

I started out with Olympus film SLRs (I still have my parents’ old camera, the one I learned on when I was a child).
I dabbled in various point and shoot brands as Christmas gifts and thrift store finds brought in different styles of pocket, instamatic, and digital cameras, and eventually got a Nikon D3100 14ish years ago as my first “good” DSLR. I gave that to my daughter to encourage her interest in photography… 🧵

Lessons that I have learned in life and wish I had learned earlier.
1 ) Walk away from people who hurt you.
2 ) Wrong is hurting people unnecessarily; Evil is deliberately hurting people unnecessarily.
3 ) It is much better to be alone than to be in a bad relationship. Never be afraid of walking away (I have done so even when it left me unhoused)
4 ) Always save everything that you want to keep in files that you have multiple backups of, this includes links to anything that you might want to share.
5 ) The first thing that you need to learn about any online space is how to block, keep yourself safe.
6 ) You do not have to set yourself on fire to keep anyone else warm. Take care of yourself.
7 ) Trust your inner impression, if you feel that you are in danger or that a person or organization might hurt you get away as fast as possible.
8 ) Live your own truth, do not let others tell you who you are.
Quick tutorial about blanket traits implementations in #Rust
In that thread I articulated some observations on why discussing #teaching and #learning can be hard: https://www.harihareswara.net/posts/2021/it-can-be-hard-to-talk-about-learning-and-teaching/
"It can be hard to accurately remember the experience of not having a skill... what your mental models were, what perceptual gaps you have since fixed...
...people will use different words to describe the same experience, or will have divergent conscious memories..."
"People don't learn like that!" often means "I have no conscious recollection of learning that way."
Twice in the last month, someone has lamented near me that they have a bunch of learned-through-experience knowledge in their head, and they don't know how to draw it out into lessons to #teach their colleagues.
This is called "tacit knowledge". And fortunately, we actually know some ways to elicit it from experts & use it to train new learners!
I've appreciated Cedric Chin's blog series on this:

There's a category of things you cannot (competently) learn by only reading a book (or a website), or even watching a video. Some examples: rock climbing, beekeeping, gardening, woodworking, driving. No matter the sum of written knowledge or videos on these things... you have to roll up your sleeves and actually apply those skills to learn (and master) those things. #learning #knowledge
...and they lost me. I'm at the "do I give up, or hope it will click later" crossroads.
My naive guess had been plasticity of the cell membrane itself, storing experience like a bruise or scar, but as usual, nature was both far more clever and far more efficient:
Memories may be stored in the membranes of your neurons https://theconversation.com/memories-may-be-stored-in-the-membranes-of-your-neurons-200981
>Pinpointing where memories are stored in the brain and how they are transmitted could provide new targets to treat neurological diseases and serve as models for neuromorphic computing.

I'm really passionate about story telling. I make little indie games and write stories. With both mediums I tend towards the dark but quirky, think of Addams Family and youve got the right idea.
I love sharing the projects I'm working on. I'll post often about them. More formal write ups go on my Blog/Portfolio. Link for that and all my socials are in my bio.
I'm still deciding if I want to move to this new account fully from my @email@example.com account. So far I'm really liking CalcKey so I'll probably move over when I can

When you revisit a test, that's a great opportunity to refactor it, especially if you have created Test Factories or Test Data Builders.
In today's #Learning #Ensemble, we did exactly that. Not only fixed the (broken) tests, but made them so much easier to read and understand.
There's also something very satisfying about making a test shorter AND easier to understand.
