I want to help people learn what they want to learn, faster
. A key part of my research
is to do my best to eliminate learning curves. To do this, I must explore how people learn and how software can be used to help them out.
Let me teach you
If you would like to learn something about which I am knowledgeable, I will gladly help you. The only thing I ask in return is that you give me insight into how you learn. A few things I do:
However, don't feel restricted to the above. For example, I'd be willing to learn Perl or Python. I really just want quality information on given topics, and perhaps some insight into what is hard to understand about them.
You can help
I need to know how you learn. I want lists of gotchas and ahah-moments: these provide insight into harmful misconceptions that stunt learning. For some idea of what this documentation might look like, see narbsy on learning SQL
If you do anything approaching a decent job, I'll offer to compensate you for it with electronic money (PayPal
is preferred). Feel free to contact me
about getting a tsunami account and doing this.
You will be using a custom lightweight markup syntax
. Suggestions are welcome and might get implemented close to real-time if they're very good/easy. Start here!
