Things may have seemed quiet here on the Zotero front over the past few months, but the development timeline tells a very different story: we recently recorded our 10,000th commit to the code repository, and the pace of development associated with the Zotero Everywhere initiative has only accelerated since then.
Over the next two weeks, we’re unveiling the initial fruits of this labor, including: An entirely redesigned website including full read and write functionality. Based on our own public API, this site brings full interactivity with your library to any browser. A few design quirks remain, but we wanted to put all the new functionality into your hands now while we continue to iron out these issues in the background. A beta release of the standalone version of Zotero. New browser connector betas. New word processor integration. Finding the Best Programmer's Font. Finding the Best Programmer's Font. Tag #software - oAnth-miscellaneous. Original article - theatlantic.com - 201106: What's especially neat about it is that someone who has never programmed -- someone who doesn't even know what a program is -- can learn to write code that solves this problem in less than three hours.
I've seen it happen. All it takes is a little hunger. You just have to want the answer. That's the pedagological ballgame: get your student to want to find something out. It's like sitting a kid down at the ORIC-1. Along the way, of course, they'll start to pick up all the concepts you wanted to teach them in the first place.
Project Euler, named for the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler, is popular (more than 150,000 users have submitted 2,630,835 solutions) precisely because Colin Hughes -- and later, a team of eight or nine hand-picked helpers -- crafted problems that lots of people get the itch to solve. The problems range in difficulty and for many the experience is inductive chain learning. Cf. Detect - Learn - Control. Ghostery. Ghostery. HTTPS Everywhere Launches, Aims to Better Secure the Internet [for FF & SeaMonkey] 2011-07-05. Original URL at "But as was already said, the decomposition of society may be seen especially in the disappearance of significations, the almost complete evanescence of values.
And the latter is, in the end, threatening to the very survival of the system. When, as is the case in all Western societies, it is openly proclaimed (and in France the glory goes to the Socialists for having done what the Right dared not do) that the sole value is money, profit, that the sublime ideal of social life is to enrich yourself, is it conceivable that a society can continue to function and reproduce itself on this basis alone? If that is the case, public servants ought to ask for and accept baksheeshes for doing their work, judges ought to put their decisions up for auction, teachers ought to grant good grades to the children whose parents slip them a check, and the rest accordingly. I wrote almost fifteen years ago about this, that the only thing stopping people today is fear of penal sanctions. . [ ] HTTPS Everywhere. HTTPS Everywhere is produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site. The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by using clever technology to rewrite requests to these sites to HTTPS. Information about how to access the project's Git repository and get involved in development is here.
