    1. Minimum Viable Rhythm

      Love this idea

    2. A focus on continued learning, teaching and helping other member's self-development

      I love this! Feels super in line with bell hooks' All About Love

    3. Why do we track the value of casual contributions?

      I definitely agree in the reasoning behind tracking casual contributions, but when you get to the part about DisCO Ley Lines, I think and underlying problem becomes way more salient:

      value tracking, especially in the case of tracking for the purposes of some sort of recognition by a large third party is a sure fire way of "abstracting" an individuals labor. How do we address this feeling of "heaven is high, emperor is far away" when talking about value tracking, especially in relation to DisCOs unrelated to the DisCO Mothership? That line in particular makes this document less transferrable as a tool for teaching people interested in starting their own DisCOs because it is specifically addressing people's labor in relation to the Mothership.

      TL;DR maybe remove the Ley Lines bullet

    1. <aside> is appropriate if the side note "could be considered separate from the content"

      From a programmer's perspective:

      • It shouldn't be in an <aside>, if it is actually directly about what is in <main>
      • An <aside> should be able to be evaluated on its own, (almost entirely) in isolation from, and not dependent on anything in, the <main> content. This could be especially important/relevant for screen readers.

    1. When was the last time you heard of a public utility starting up in someone’s garage?

      Rethorically pleasant, but a misleading statement. Until some years ago, you had probably also never heard of a billion-dollar company starting up in someone's garage. The productive potential of garages has risen astonishingly.

    1. If your desired username is already taken, we will be happy to help you acquire it for your account or channel, provided that you have that same username on at least two of these services: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

      Strange policy - "acquiring it for you" implies "taking it from someone else". To make a Telegram account and be sure others will not take it from you, you thus have to also check and create accounts on those other services.

    1. not clear how it can be applied toReLU autoencoders

      But other sparsity measures than KL divergence are still applicable, e.g. penalising the sum of the absolute activities (\(\sum_i \left|h_i\right|\))

    1. a probabilistic model QQ that in some sense approximates the natural distribution of data PP

      Note that many sources use the letters P and Q the other way around.
