Hey everyone, Moodle is looking for a Technical Architect to assist me on the MoodleNet project I'm leading.
I'd like to encourage applications from far and wide, so please consider applying.
Note that need to be within five hours of UK time - or be willing to shift your hours to accommodate.
Please boost, so that awesome, suitably-qualified people on Mastodon and the wider Fediverse see this opportunity! https://social.coop/media/HKVLGA-LEL_w9FTKxCg
Happy #anniversary social.coop! 🎂
I found some higher resolution PNG buttons! https://creativecommons.org/about/downloads
I'm finding it surprisingly difficult to put a CC-BY image on my slides/handouts. When I include PNGs as images through Pandoc they are big and fuzzy, especially on Beamer slides. Neither the EPS or SVG works when making PDFs with Pandoc. (Except that it did work with one slide deck for a reason that I haven't discovered.)
I'm assuming that if I have the text and no image the legal status is the same, so maybe this isn't worth thinking too hard about.
General call out to folks. We're starting a History and Philosophy of Science reading group. We will read the first chapter of https://www.amazon.com/Exact-Thinking-Demented-Times-Foundations/dp/0465096956 and we will meet on https://www.worldtimebuddy.com/?qm=1&lid=2147714,2078025,100&h=2147714&date=2018-3-10&sln=10-11 and we will meet in https://discord.gg/ERQUGp6
All who have done the reading are welcome, spread the call. No RSVP needed.
FYI, recent #socialcoop arrivals, this interview provides some good context for our instance: https://medium.com/open-collective/social-coop-a-cooperative-decentralized-social-network-c10980c9ed91
I edited https://www.openstreetmap.org for the first time, to add a great coffee shop in Dún Laoghaire.
By the way, I am https://scholar.social/@twsh as well.
'Humanizing the Economy' is a popular suggestion.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
