beimwort Ich finde das Spitzenkandidatenprinzip ja persönlich ganz gut, aber diese ständig neuen demokratietheoretisch fragwürdigen Heilserwartungen an kleinere Änderung des politischen Prozesses in den letzten Jahren sind echt ungesund für alle Beteiligten.

JessicaCalarco Mentors shouldn’t knowingly contribute to academia’s culture of cruelty. It’s okay to prepare students for cruelty ("Here's a rough review I got and how I dealt with it”). It’s not okay to inflict cruelty for practice (“I’ll be harsh on you, so you’ll be ready for Reviewer 2”).

vrooje The serendipitous chorus of “NO” in response to “I don’t need the mic, I can just shout” is heartening to see from attendees! A great example of mild but positive social pressure that helps our community be more inclusive.

cdutilhnovaes This observation has profound philosophical implications, in that it suggests that there isn't anything like an atemporal essence of what math proofs really are. As the practices of mathematicians change over the years, so does the very concept of what counts as a proof.

cdutilhnovaes As I work on the chapter on math practices for my deduction monograph, I came across this book, which looks super interesting (I just started reading it). It shows that the concept of mathematical proof has changed and continues to change over time.
