Wikipedia’s peer production model is not immune to “rich get richer” mechanisms.
Wikipedia is not a dictionary, manual, directory, or a variety of other reference genres.
Encyclopedia have always struggled with the limitations of synthesizing knowledge into paper documents because when the knowledge changes, so must the paper. Wikipedia was not the first encyclopedia to use the online medium to rapidly and inexpensively revise content in response to changes, but its unique “anyone can edit” model had the effect of entangling current events with the viability of the project.

“We always get pushed to the back because we are not usually the ones that are writing the book of the past. It was always them writing and they wrote about people they thought were acceptable. And now we’re getting a little bit more desire to pull up everyone else that’s made a difference.”
Really overwhelming article about David Fincher.
Some people dedicate their work & understand the real meaning of their work. They worship what they do & his creations whether it's Hollywood movies, Screenplays, or Ads did amazing work for the industry.
Best can be extracted from Good but what if it's already Better?
Books resolve this tension. With a book, the conversation takes place inside someone's head and without the risk of being judged by others. It's easier to be open-minded when you aren't feeling defensive.
Yeah, this site can actually be a fun way to understand how computers write a poem. I personally visited it & tried it, I felt happy to see how decent poems also comes from the computer. But on the other hand, the thought "whether tech searches lead humans inability to take stand for their creations came into mind?"
Jonathon Keats's an experimental philosophical approach can actually open your mind to nature. He has implemented & discovered various projects which can be helpful to understand nature & climate change. He creates & works on alternate realities that provide perspective on our society. And then a technique to create a philosophical instrument.
Band to a bristlecone pine tree is one of the timekeepers he's discovered to observe the level of CO2. It's a clock that varies with the changing climate.
Yes, well behaved job culture is important for an employee. If the company expects the same from an employee it should also reciprocate the same. During these, so many of you facing the same problem. And at the EOD it comes with disappointment that after giving so much to the job results are not in our favour. Then comes this - Even if your manager were certain the problem was on your side (based on, say, seeing other people handle an identical workload without difficulty), she would still be having conversations with you about your workload and how to prioritize tasks. And if you were just not well suited to the pace of work, she’d be having more serious conversations with you about your performance. It’s even worse when you’re desperately trying to flag the problem and they’re not only refusing to discuss it but making you feel like the problem is you.
There's no need to be exhausted for a company which doesn't know your & your efforts value. But at the same time, it's our need!! You’ve got the strain of the pandemic plus the unexpected and traumatic death of a family member. And you’re in a job that involves working with trauma.
You deserve a job where you can say that you need help and be listened to. You deserve a job where your legitimate concerns about your role and your workload aren’t minimized and turned back around on you. You deserve a job where you can eat lunch and pause to drink water and not spend the weekend exhausted. This job isn’t it. It’s not you. It’s the job.
What should we call it? Showing new direction to the music & creating some extra-ordinary stuff with that idea, this article is all about that. Both had wide contribution in this software. Generating a rhythmic profile in real-time says all the functioning of the software.
Adapting our human creativity to the computer’s strange musical material was an education in itself.
Once we started being delighted and astonished by the system’s output, we could stop pretending to be computer scientists and concentrate on the business of making weird music.
In attempting to harness computational creativity, we never nursed the hope of one day replacing ourselves as composers.
We are thrown into a world awaiting construction and completion by human thought and action, left to fend for ourselves, and the trauma of birth – thrust from the darkness into the light, left to make sense of it all.
We should not expect or demand totalizing relief for fear of neutering our effective, inquiring selves. Humans are philosophizing animals precisely because we are the anxious animal: not a creature of the present, but regretful about the past and fearful of the future.
The inquiry comes to an end when we’re not anxious, but rather sated and blissful.
Deep thoughts about biology & physics together in this conversation. Some explanations really needed to be a rethink, because we've forgotten that the difference between physics and biology is that they are different languages for talking about the same world.
What I find is that when I focus on any one of those properties, you can always find examples and counter-examples. If you were loose enough in your understanding of what it means to copy yourself, for instance, then a spreading fire is a self-copying phenomenon. But to call a fire alive is a really contentious extension of the domain of that word.
You accept the reality when it could be touched by own gesture. This article is enough to realize, that we human beings are blessed by the "touch sensations". T&C applicable.
Touch is the sense that has paid the highest price. There is no care, there is no cure, without touch. Touch on the skin can reduce heart rate, blood pressure and cortisol levels – all factors related to stress – in both adults and babies. It facilitates the release of oxytocin, a hormone that provides sensations of calm, relaxation and being at peace with the world.
Insightful thoughts in this article. The thought of pessimism holds us in the same loop of negativeness. Perhaps the best way to understand our engagement with pessimism is to observe those occasions when it does not attract us when we put it aside with distaste or boredom.
Life is chaos, a long sequence of uncontrollable disasters, but this idea is expressed with great control and elegance, suggesting heroic adaptation, appropriation even, rather than capitulation
