Some fun stats from product sidehustle land 👇

Since March 2015

2695 hours
1.8 hrs/day average

3-ish products
~2800 sales
$139,208 revenue post fees
$81,767 expenses

$21/hour 🤔

This must be why most people share only the revenue numbers #open
Now the obvious question: Why would anyone do this?

Well for starters it's still better than a coding job back home. My first job building websites was for $7/hour.

That was in high school.
I eventually got better jobs, yes. Mostly thanks to moving into freelancing, being picky about clients, and choosing to work for foreign clients (primarily US startup land) whenever possible.

That got me to about $70,000/year. It was great. Lived like a king.

An often misunderstood element of the next generation of credential based digital #identity systems is that they are no longer reliant on any single issuer being trustworthy. 1/n
Rather, they rely the combination of many issuers, and many #verifiableclaims in order to create a reliable web of trust. As with any network, this ability to establish trust between peers scales exponentially with the relationships inside it. 2/n
This network effect fundamentally shifts the power balance from centralized issuers, or federated identity managers, towards individual ID holders. The trade-off here is 1) the ease of #compliance and 2) #automation of services across contexts in an ever expanding ecosystem. 3/n

What’s that you say? I haven’t tweeted in a few days about this AMAZING JOB w @AutisticaUK & @turinginst that I’d love for you to apply for or share with anyone you know?

GO ON THEN. A thread about our values and project outcomes! 🌟🙌🏿🙌🏾👩🏻‍💻👩🏿‍💻👨🏼‍💻👨🏾‍💻😬🥰💖🥳

The values are attached as a pdf to the job description linked above. Here’s the direct link: turing.ac.uk/sites/default/…

Before I dig into them I want to give a quick shout out to Georgia Aitkenhead who wrote the first draft based on our long conversations. THANK YOU Georgia!
The values are only loosely ordered. Don’t read too much into which ones come first etc. They’re ALL important.

When you apply for the job PLEASE address the values in your cover letter. It’s an essential requirement that you have a commitment to these values.

A little thread telling you one of my motivations for this #CitizenScience collaboration between @AutisticaUK and @turinginst.

It’s about how non-autistic folk can adjust our behaviour to make places easier for #autistic people to live and work.

In 2016 I was selected to attend #OpenCon @open_con - a conference to support #EarlyCareer researchers in #OpenData #OpenAccess and #OpenEducationalResources.

We were asked to watch a couple of videos before arriving in #DC to make sure we were all on the same page.
The video/webinar that stuck with me the most was the one on #Diversity, #Equity and #Inclusion in the #Open community.

And in particular the section by @pennyb which starts around 15:30

(1/x) In mir wächst der Gedanke,dass für #OER in DE/DACH derzeit "eierlegende Wollmilchsau"-Problematik besteht: OER soll so viele Funktionen erfüllen, dass es an klaren und eng definierten Einsatzszenarien fehlt.

(2/x) Diese Einsatzszenarien müssten m.E. nach a) skalierbar (vgl. Konzepte wie Flipped/Inverted Classroom, die gut kommunizierbar sind) sowie b) konkurrenzfähig sein ("herausragende Alleinstellungsmerkmale" [USPs] gegenüber der Konkurrenz besitzen).
(3/x) In den USA z.B. existiert das große Alleinstellungsmerkmal des kostenfreien Zugangs für Lernende ("equal access"/Phänomen "textbook broke"). Auf Kosten als Argument zu setzen ist riskant, aber funktioniert dort derzeit. Es gibt einen klaren Mehrwert:

So please excuse me for a bit of a rant....

There’s a lot in common with #bruceoake recovery, #PortageandMain and other initiatives in Winnipeg. I remember moving here 16 years ago and experiencing it and was caught off guard.
At my arrival or shortly after Glen Murray was mayor and he was trying to get public support for user fee based trash collection. He did public meetings and more expousing on the benefits of user fee systems- something very common & with economical sense
It went nowhere, which is unfortunate in my opinion. But things carried on in Winnipeg and good things happened. A new arena was built but that too came with controversy and issues. A world class human rights musuem too, but not w/o issues.
