A note on groups:

From an op-ed piece in the New York Times by David Brooks:

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Carnegie Mellon have found that groups have a high collective intelligence when members of a group are good at reading each others’ emotions — when they take turns speaking, when the inputs from each member are managed fluidly, when they detect each others’ inclinations and strengths.

Participating in a well-functioning group is really hard. It requires the ability to trust people outside your kinship circle, read intonations and moods, understand how the psychological pieces each person brings to the room can and cannot fit together.

Notes on using the wiki:

  • To create a new page as a subpage to an existing page, edit the existing page and add a link by inserting [[/name of new page|text visible for the link to the new page]]. Then save your changes and click on the link you just created. This is what the link will look like:
    text visible for the link to the new page
  • To upload a file, e.g. a pdf file with graphs, first save it on your computer with a name that begins with your userid on the wiki: e.g. 'georges.quantile_plot_for_assn_1.pdf'. You can then include a link to the file within a wiki page. Note that all file names need to be unique on the wiki. If you use an existing name, the original file will be overwritten. Sometimes you will, of course, do this intentionally.
