Re: Goatwatch 2019

I know, right? Sadly, the security has become a lot more persistent too so goatwatch hasn't been as fun the past few years as it used to be.

I mean that each post would be an essay-ish summary of an interesting thread (or maybe a few related threads). "x argues this because of that reason. y agrees, but adds something else. z disagrees with everyone." (but make it sound meatier, more formal, like brainpickings, with a primary emphasis o...

Re: Technical Issues

Yeah I'm just super busy these days and getting close to finishing a paper for work that has been hanging over me for way longer than strictly necessary so trying to stay focused on that. I will have a bit more time later in the week to look into things but help will make things faster. So either I...

Re: What are you reading?

Re: What are you reading?
