Read: The Sea Is Not Made of Water by Adam Nicolson ★★★★☆ 📚
Somewhat about the life in 3 tidal pools the author made. Shoreline nature, history of Argyll, sea & planet. I particularly enjoyed the ecology of the shore, the relationship between limpets, winkles crabs & seaweed.
Modern college students aren’t organizing their files into folders and directories, forcing some professors to rethink the way they teach programming.
An interesting and extensive post about generation Zs lack of understanding around the file system. Most of the pupils l teach, 10×11 years, have even less of a clue. Being brought up on phones and tablets. Being 1-2-1 iPad in school will not help. We do try towards the end of primary seven to use our laptops a bit more as they will move to PCs in high school. It is hard to get up much enthusiasm for the process given the time it takes to get up and running with a PC compared to an iPad.
I’m a folders person myself, but not particularly well organised. I do have a fair understanding of file paths, transitioning from classic Mac to OSX with slightly different representations of file pasts certainly helped that. URLs can help too, but browsers want to hide those now.
Drummer has a lot of interesting features, I am kicking the tyres a little. When I started this blog I used pivot, a flat file php blogging system. It also had this sort of feature, although they didn’t call it a glossary. I would think someone could write a WordPress plugin to do the same sort of thing.
A previous outline & blog system from Dave Winer, Fargo, had a post to WordPress feature. I am wondering if this might be possible for Drummer too.
This is a useful guide. I remember Oliver Quinlan, a guest on Radio EDUtalk talking about the eloquence of the command line compared to pointing and grunting.
I enjoy using the command line, often with Raspberry PIs, but it is easy to miss some of the basics which this guide covers well.
The report, from albert, a Bafta-backed sustainability project, also found that individual action, such as recycling, was far more frequently featured than issues that are much bigger drivers of the climate crisis such as energy and transport.
Smart research by Albert Subtitles to Save the World 2 – Editorial analysing subtitles. I’ve played with srt files for fun but this is serious!
Keeping this one for the “charming” Going to have a re-listen.
