Anonymization

"Collapse" book notes
---------------------------------------------------------------------

"Lactational amenorrhea": temporary infertility after birthing when breast      
feeding                                                                         


Cooperatives ("Co-ops")
---------------------------------------------------------------------
A coop is a social and educational institution as well as a mutual employer.

A coop should not restrict the rights of it's employees any more than a regular
"citizen". Eg, contracts should have no non-compete provisions, no restrictions
on employee's activities and behavior outside of work, no muzzling effect on
blogging, etc.

Some Tech Coops:

Julia (programming)
---------------------------------------------------------------------

reload("MyModule"); M = MyModule()

then do, eg, M.myfunc(). Don't need to export stuff.

*do* need to symlink the project dir into ~/.julia

there is a way to recreate a new top-level "Main" module: workspace()

the workspace() function in combination with include() kind of works


Programming Language Design

Recursive Make and Variables...

If using recursive make, it's good to review the rules about environment
variables, passing, exporting, etc:
