Last few weeks have been a bit hectic and my post queue dwindled, but here are some Saturday links:
1. The I Quit Academia genre. I like the meta-idea. I also notice that often the people leaving academia use the word “corporatization” (or some equivalent) to discuss what they dislike about the public or non-profit institutions they are leaving, in contrast to the less bureaucratic for-profit enterprises they are now joining. Should we conclude that corporatization means “becoming less like a 21st century corporation and more like a 20th century bureaucracy”.
2. Do things, write about it. This is about blogging, but the title could apply to science too.
This is one of those things where the there is a solution (zero-based) which is not intuitive at first but is actually more intuitive in the long run. With 1-based indices and inclusive splicing, you always need to keep track of +1s and -1s all over the place.
