  1. Last fall, I invested in a blockchain startup. Now, I have a goal of creating a paid position in the company within a few months. There looks to be some very big investment just around the corner, and they are launching an extremely exciting product within a couple of months. I do not have any concrete skills that are directly relevant and that can be easily monetized in the company - yet. Therefore, my intention is to learn by showing up. Basically being at the office pretty much every day and absorb. I have money for spending for a few months to come, so I can afford to be there without getting paid for a little while. Plus, of course, my equity may do a job giving me an "income" as well. So, wealth will most likely increase anyway, but I of course need some income to pay bills etc. While showing up is usually a great way to learn stuff in general (and I have good experience of this), I think I may need a strategy for exactly how I should be showing up in this context. Does anybody here have experience immersing yourself in a new business? What is my best strategy here, be as curious as I can? Ask questions as often as possible? Help brew coffee as often as possible? Be as critical (constructively, of course) as possible? Etc etc Advice would be much appreciated
  2. How to read?

    Usually the reason I pick up a book this days is to learn about subjects I'm personally interested in. My issue is that lots of times I finish a book and don't remember a lot about it. I have an idea of its basic structure and remember specific passages but even then if I go back and read the paragraphs I'll probably discover I missed some important aspect of the text. Unlike many, to me, reading in itself is not a pleasurable experience. I enjoy and love specific books, I like learning, but not the action itself. I'm trying to figure out if I can change some of my reading habits to improve my understanding. This are some ideas and the potential problems: Book Club: I think probably this one would work best for me. Read the book and then discuss it with people, the downside is I would have to read stuff others selected. Make a blog post about it?: This looks like a lot of work and I'm a terrible writer. Read about subjects that are on the news: I think this would help me relate the stuff people talk about with the things I read but that would limit a lot the books I can select. Reread specific chapters: I'm doing this and I think it helps, I try to go back and read chapters that for some reason pop in my mind, but I don't like rereading a lot. Do you have some advise? What do you do?
  3. Online philosophy courses?

    Hey, I was wondering whether someone could recommend something along the lines of "online course in philosophy". I want to learn more about philosophy starting from the basics. Cheers!
  4. Interesting article, got my mind blown a little at one of the studies they use as examples. Imo totally worth the read, enjoy https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/freedom-learn/201506/how-early-academic-training-retards-intellectual-development
  5. Anyone learning programming?

    Hi! I've recently begun learning programming "full-time" about two months, with a focus on web development. So far I've done Codecademy's Python, HTML & CSS and Javascript, done most of Learn Python The Hard Way and am doing a couple Coursera courses. My aim is to actually learn enough to be able to find an entry-level job in the field, and go from there. As you can see, I'm learning using online resources, and am really trying to avoid my country's god-awful state (higher) education. I was wondering if anyone is planning to embark on or is currently on the same journey as me? I'd really like to connect up, I believe that the right company can be very stimulating while learning - and there's not much of it physically around me (I live in a small town currently). Also, if there's anyone who is currently working in the field (be it Web or not), could you give me 20 minutes of your time? I have some questions on the subject, and I'd be very grateful to talk to someone who has experience. Maybe you could PM me? Thanks a lot!

    When I was 8 I thought that the past was all in black and white.
  7. Hi, FDR I am in the planning stages of creating a curriculum for homeschooling, and it would be great if my product could fulfill the needs of people like the ones here. I am looking for secular homeschoolers. I would like to know about the textbooks and classroom resources you use. Ubiquitous topics like algebra, chemistry, and music have been done very well. I would like to fill niche areas, instead. Does your homeschooled child have access to courses such as: engineering, hydrology, thermodynamics, ecology, mycology, nutrition, food chemistry, quantum mechanics and do any of these courses resonate with you? Would you purchase course materials for these or other course topics? I appreciate your feedback. When my product goes to market, I will give generous discounts to anyone who provides honest feedback. Best, Tibor
  8. Hello All, I have been an FDR subscriber/donor for years. To quote my favourite philosopher, "I hope you're all doing very well". I sit on the board of the Compass Centre for Self-Directed Learning, a charity in Ottawa, Ontario that provides support and guidance to teens that have chosen to pursue their educations outside of the conventional government school system. Many homeschooling and unschooling families in Ottawa use the services of Compass. Compass is competing for a prize being awarded by the Canadian Scholarship Trust. The prize is for innovation in education, and goes to the idea with the most votes on their web site. If you support the project of getting kids out of the government school system, please give us a hand. Go to http://learningproject.cst.org/ideas/376 and register. Registering is a minor hassle, but once that's done, it's very easy to vote. You can vote every day for the next couple of weeks. Many thanks. Jared
