Father’s Day, Juneteenth 2022 – Nate Angell

No highlighted text in this annotation.

I found the history of Father's Day to be an interesting read...it was not clear to me that it has had as diverse support as Mother's Day...and seems though Father's Day likely would not exist had it not been for the support of commercial interests.

Oh yes! I've been to Oaxaca and it is great! Each area of Mexico tho has it's own special foods. Puebla is famous for its mole poblano, a spicy sauce made with chiles and chocolate!

That seems like a lot of signatures for what might be a sort of small matter!

Innovation in Higher Education. Wait, what?

Innovation is opening up educational policies and practices.

A tool one can use to think about different ways of opening education is [Open Learning Experience Bingo](http://xolotl.org/okp-learning-experience-bingo-2-0/), a "game" you can apply to learning experiences and identify and/or imagine different ways to open them up.

A Declaration of Independence by a Princeton Professor - Quillette

I defy any of my colleagues to argue persuasively that defunding campus police is a good idea, even at idyllic Princeton.

Has Katz not encountered persuasive arguments for why one might support systematic change in policing?

evil

Is "evil" really the right word? Profoundly immoral and wicked? Doing the work of the Devil?

a small local terrorist organization

Much has been made out of these few words. No doubt calling BJL "terrorist" is incendiary. Does Katz believe incendiary rhetoric makes his case more convincing?

A Declaration of Independence by a Princeton Professor - Quillette

“Establish a core distribution requirement focused on the history and legacy of racism in the country and on the campus.” There would be wisdom in this time of disunity in suggesting (not, in my view, requiring) that students take courses in American history and constitutionalism, both of which almost inevitably consider slavery and race, but that is not the same thing. Not incidentally, if you believe anti-blackness to be foundational, it is not a stretch to imagine that you will teach the 1619 Project as dogma.

This section demonstrates how calls to "objectivity" undermine critical thinking. Objectivity becomes its own dogma.

reason other than their pigmentation

It boggles Katz's mind that advantages for certain people have been established and are still working today for "no reason other than their pigmentation"? Does Katz believe that structural racism is no longer in operation?

civil war on campus

Like armed conflict? Very dramatic.

A Declaration of Independence by a Princeton Professor - Quillette

No one is in the middle.

Rush to judgment; unsound research. Because Katz's friends' POVs and POVs he found online are all extreme, all POVs are extreme.

A Declaration of Independence by a Princeton Professor - Quillette

In 1776 there were “united States” but there was not yet the “United States”; in these past two months, by contrast, at a time when we are increasingly un-united, “black” has become “Black” while “white” remains “white.”

A focus on "proper" writing: recognizing the historical specificity of why "united" might not yet have been capitalized in 1776, but avoiding an understanding of why today one might capitalize Black and white differently.

whose first words every American child knows, or used to

More nostalgia; Katz projects his own experience and the experience of people like him onto "every American child".

just a few minutes ago

Hyperbolic nostalgia for the loss unexamined hero worship of "founding fathers".

A useful, critical taxonomy of decentralization, beyond blockchains

Subsidiarity, which uses “data cooperatives, collaboratives, and trusts with privacy-preserving and -enhancing techniques for data processing, such as federated learning and secure multiparty computation.”

Another value of the data cooperative model might be that each individual might not have time to research and administer possible new data-sharing requests/opportunities, and it would be helpful to entrust that work to a cooperative entity that already has one's trust.
