Short GaFilk con report

January 15th, 2013 (11:39 pm)

First GaFilk in many years, first filkcon with a tablet (WOW! what a difference that makes). Saw many friends, met a few new ones, sang, laughed, forgot melodies and words, and laughed some more. Picked up a copy of Debbie Ohi's "I'm Bored," along with other books. Bought Cat's CD from BandCamp (http://catfaber.bandcamp.com).

I want a teleporter and a Time Turner, in case the schedule for 2014's GaFilk doesn't mesh as well with mine as I'd like.

Being a layperson in another field (psychology)

January 2nd, 2011 (08:08 pm)

As an historian in an interdisciplinary field (education), I have plenty of experience being a "quick read" on a topic so that I can teach it or participate in a research project. That's very different from reading in an area just for the pleasure of learning something about a field. In the past few weeks, I finally accumulated enough time during holidays to finish reading Claude Steel's Whistling Vivaldi on stereotype threat and Antonio Damasio's Self Comes to Mind, a general-reader book on neuroscience that focuses on human consciousness and what he calls our "autobiographical self" (the part of your mind that will later remember yourself reading this entry and being annoyed at this self-referential parenthesis). More thoughts on an historian reading psychologists behind the cutCollapse )

I recommend both books.

A very serious threat to the open-source software movement and to net neutrality

I think we now have a perfectly logical explanation for the Doctor's appearance at MIT this week. It's just not a very comfortable one.
