MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses)

From: andrew cooke <andrew@...>

Didn't know these were a thing.

   Robert Zemsky (2014) argues that they have passed their peak: "They 
   came; they conquered very little; and now they face substantially 
   diminished prospects."

Weeks 3-6

From: andrew cooke <andrew@...>

Date: Sat, 25 Jul 2015 11:54:11 -0300

Week 3 jun 08-12 - half week before travelling to japan + japan
Week 4 jun 22-26 - in japan
Week 5 jul 06-10 - installed new OS on desktop; GML parser
Week 6 jul 20-24 - improvements to GML parser; AutoTypeParameters

This is a bit frustrating.  My free time seems to be whizzing past and I
haven't kept records to see what I am doing.

As in the summary above, about half of the issue is that we went to Japan.

Otherwise, I feel I have been putting a lot of time into proggramming Julia,
and not enough on new ideas.  I have a pile of books in the post, butntohing
has arrived.

Also, various health worries.  First vision.  Now something weird in my right
hand / arm (twitching at night).  Unclear if it's the "normal" noise, or
another outbreak.  Don't have enough "hard evidence" of an outbreak and need
to see doctor in 2 weeks anyway, so probably waiting til then (context: every
time I have gone, worried, we have found nothing).

Japanese Graphic Design

Seeing the Tokyo Olympics logo reminded me of one the best exhibition we saw
in Japan recently.  It was a retrospective on the work of Ikko Tanaka.

We tried to find a poster, but failed.  Perhaps one day when I visit Moma they
may have something.
