This is super cool. I should start learning how to do data mining myself as soon as possible, whether to social science data or otherwise.

books

Volunteered at the used book sale today, got these books:

  • Blueprint for Counter Education (1970) — had enormous posters inside with weird hippie/political philosophy student rhetoric on it! It’s so cheesy, it’s cute.
  • I and Thou, Martin Buber
  • Not a Piano Key, Yaacov Luria
  • Science of Education and the Psychology of the Child, Jean Piaget
  • Foods of the World: Wines and Spirits
  • Socialist Humanism: An International Symposium, Erich Fromm

My book-acquiring behaviour reveals that I am still a big social sciences nerd and a big Jew, and a wino.
