Have any culture ever devised a proper notation? I'm not speaking about utilizing the Latin (a-f/A-F) as the .
For instance, is there ever a which would mean "ten" in any context, just like 2 means "two", even if standing alone.

Well it looks like I won't miss the delivery because the appointment I thought was today was actually 2 weeks ago.

OK. 😐

Well, I got Neverwinter Online to run under Linux, so that's a win for the day.

(All it took was copying all the files from my main Windows computer into the virtual drive created by PlayOnLinux after the first 5 times it failed to install.)

1. I am expecting a package before 8pm today.
2. Tracker says it's "Out for delivery."
3. I will be away for just over one hour for a previously scheduled appointment.

How likely is it that it'll show up while I'm gone?

I am an IT Support Technician at St. Johns River State College with my Master's in Instructional Design and Technology from the University of Tampa. My career goals are to become an Instructional Technologist specializing in Distance Education and Accessible Technology. You can find my portfolio at www.ericwhitmer.com.

So, we've got Arizona, Kentucky, Oklahoma, and West Virginia with teacher strikes in the US. Starting to look like a real movement pushing back against a low tax-low spend society. I'd like to see a few more join in. I'd like to see enough that you need a single serving website like areteachersinmystateonstrikeforfairness.com. I'd like to see Texas teachers go on strike, too.

I'm giving a 10 minute presentation to a faculty group on how can be helpful and how I can help them find OER. Hence the uptick in talking to myself lately. I'm certain it will go fine, but I'm thinking I need to run through it again.

Today a 4th grader asked me if I knew what GitHub is. (He spelled it to make sure I knew what he was asking.)

When I explained it enough to show that yes, I knew what it was, he asked if we were going to upload things there.

They're learning.

Minor annoyance: no matter how much I stress that actor-network theory was developed over time by Michel Callon, John Law, Annmarie Mol, and yes Bruno Latour, students still say things like "Latour's actor-network theory." Interesting how a theory stressing complexity in the generation of knowledge gets reduced to One Man's Invention
