  • Novice to Expert: How Do Professionals Learn?

  • Recent research has found that the transformation of meaning structures (schemes and perspectives) can occur without critical reflection. This phenomenon seems to be explained by a concept called implicit memory-the unconscious development of thoughts and actions. This paper involves a review of related literature on implicit memory from the fields of neurobiology and psychology and its implications for the theory and practice of transformative learning.

  • Real-Time Collaboration (RTC) and conferencing project. Written 100% in Java, it features presence, instant-messaging (1:1 and group), persistent session-based file/web browser/image/chat/whiteboard sharing.

  • The core of STXXL is an implementation of the C++ standard template library STL for external memory (out-of-core) computations, i.e., STXXL implements containers and algorithms that can process huge volumes of data that only fit on disks.

  • Dyna is a Turing-complete programming language that makes it easy to specify dynamic programs and train their weights. You write a short declarative specification in Dyna, and the Dyna optimizing compiler produces efficient C classes that form the core of your C application.

  • LingPipe is a suite of Java tools designed to perform linguistic analysis on natural language data.

  • Peter Unger   Oxford University Press 2006

  • This online library collects education CS material from Stanford courses and distributes them for free.

  • Systems Scientist  (Cybernetician at Large)

  • TransJVM is a Java package to assist compiler writers targeting the Java Virtual Machine.

  • for much of this afternoon I have been dreaming that I am in an armchair reading Raymond Tallis and waking to find that I am. None the less, his latest book, which I am reviewing for the Graun is very important. Amongst other things, it is a prolonged and lethal attack on the Churchlands, and, to a lesser extent, Daniel Dennett. Below the fold a sample of the argument.

  • A philosophical appraisal of historical positions on the nature of thought, mentality, and intelligence, this survey begins with the views of Descartes, Turing, and Newell and Simon, but includes the work of Haugeland, Fodor, Searle, and other major scholars.

  • This is a free archive of high-technology entrepreneurship teaching resources, such as video clips, case studies, course outlines, and recommendations for ways to get involved in the community of entrepreneurship educators

  • Since software doesn't exist in nature (although I confess I haven't checked religious texts for allusions to assembler or comments about COBOL), it must be the result of human creativity. But is software art? No. Software can be used to execute our ideas and create art, but it's a tool rather than a statement. The rules and syntaxes of programming languages restrict our thought processes, which inhibits artistic expression. And while the arts also have rules and syntaxes, new art is often created when rules are broken and syntax is ignored. Doing so when writing computer code merely generates error messages.
