random_walker Software companies can be breathtakingly clueless when there's a layer of indirection between them and their users. Everyone who's suffered through Blackboard will have the same reaction to this: try having less functionality! edscoop.com/how-canvas-cam… pic.twitter.com/CQ7r1nfP64

random_walker And that's exactly what's wrong with Blackboard. It has every feature ever dreamed up. But like anything designed by a committee, the interface is incoherent and any task requires at least fifteen clicks (and that's if you even remember the correct sequence the first time).

random_walker The point is, some products are sold directly to the end user, and are forced to prioritize usability. Other products are sold to an intermediary whose concerns are typically different from the user's needs. Such products don't HAVE to end up as unusable garbage, but usually do.

Puettmann_Bonn 43% der -Anhänger nennen den "Handlungsbedarf beim Klimaschutz" (sehr) groß, die der anderen Parteien zwischen 99% (Grüne) und 79% (Union). Zeigt einerseits wieder die Isolation der Rechtsausgeflippten, andererseits ihre Zerrissenheit in Sachfragen jenseits ihrer Feindbilder.

emilymbender Hey friends: I think I've read somewhere that "genetic" is dispreferred when talking about relationships between languages. Is that so? What's better? What should I read?

aclanthology (For papers with 3+ authors, use "etal" for the second author).

aclanthology Our keys are reasonable semantic (author1last-author2last-year-firstword) so you may be able to guess them. In testing, Overleaf won't tab-complete all keys, but there is no slowdown.

aclanthology For ease of citation, and to save yourself some time, you can download the entire Anthology bibtex (aclweb.org/anthology/anth… [24 MB]) and import it into your Overleaf document. Then point to it with

\bibliography{anthology,acl2019}

and you can instantly cite anything.
