What are your preferred alternatives to Google Drive's shared documents for writing/editing? Preferring ones which don't require accoutn/login!
Sounds like you're derailing. Actually people can multitask and just because people are working on trying to deal with the issues of hacker culture, doesn't mean they don't also care about whatever the 'smartphone battle' is. And ya also dealing with community problems is a lot more accessible of a battle than fighting Google. I do both, deal with the community and fight Google. Don't say that one of the things I do distracts me from the other that is what's derailing.
Dear free and open source community,
I want you to recommend projects that welcome people that never contributed to FOSS before. I am planning to do a workshop this year to encourage people to make their first contributions. What I need:
- A page explaining how they could contribute.
- General recommendations and documentation.
- Where they can contact people involved in such projects in case they have questions.
I'm late to the #introductions, but here it goes. I'm 30, she/her, from #Germany. I work as a environmental scientist at a university, pursuing a PhD degree. I need some #python #programming skills to do that.
I'm fairly into #crafts, especially #fiberarts like #knitting and #sewing.
I enjoy #boardgames a lot, I also started playing #shadowrun about a year ago.
#games like #citiesskylines or #civilization5 have quite a few hours on my steam account.
Plus: Trying to improve my #french ;)
Also, coming from Kansas I just gotta say: New Jersey is such a cute little miniature state.
So she came home from her shift at the checkout and rode her motorbike up the coast to practice. Just past this bridge she called me full of her wild ride.
She’s still 17. She earned this motorbike in a year of 5am and 6am shifts.
This evening she said “how do you guys deal with it, knowing you can just get up and go anywhere you want? How do you live with it?”
Focusing on the bike I’d missed what a milestone this is: that specific threshold of freedom.
I've made it halfway through my crazy two weeks... Today was a Bernstein Centenary Day 'Total Embrace' at my uni (I was the organiser/instigator) and it involved 6 sessions run by me, colleagues, and my MA students- ranging from an academic panel, to a community choir, to a showcase of a recent musical theater performance. Super fun that Dame Patricia Routlege came and participated in the WHOLE day. She is lovely.
Two days rest and it's the Netherlands for the next event.
I volunteer with a group called Virtually Connecting that organizes virtual conversations with people at conferences, to link them with people who can’t attend. We have a bunch of conferences in April, including one more session for Creative Commons Global Summit Sunday April 15 3:45pm eastern time (Toronto, Ontario, Canada). See here for that event and see website for other events coming up! https://virtuallyconnecting.org/blog/2018/04/07/vconnecting-at-ccsummit-in-toronto/
I've signed up for an open online course on Learning Analytics Fundamentals, with George Siemens and others. I'd like to know more about what the hype is about: https://courses.edx.org/courses/course-v1:UTArlingtonX+LINK-LA-FUNDx+3T2017/course/
Classes are now over for me and I just gave our final exam, so all I have left is marking...thus I think I should be able to complete this four-week course!

@mawr this paper explains a lot of the problems and proposes a much saner alternative: https://blog.acolyer.org/2016/10/24/whats-wrong-with-git-a-conceptual-design-analysis/
