Summaries and further readings

  1. Editor's Workshop – Staszek Krawczyk
    After a general discussion on linguistic correctness, we've run through a few texts (provided by the participants themselves) to discuss some writing, editing and proofreading problems in the Polish language.
  2. Some Songs by Jacek Kaczmarski – Staszek Krawczyk
    I've performed a number of songs and talked about them a little bit. You can read about Kaczmarski here. You may note that a very similar point appears in the program of the 2nd Offtopicarium; however, we only found time for few pieces there, so now I was able to amend for this.
  3. Complexity – Artur Piróg
    What makes life a so beautiful phenomenon? Why we are homeostatic creatures? The difference between machines and living organism is the level of complexity and dynamics of its structure. We are homeostatic creatures. Studying of living organism encounters a non-intuitive obstacles just because of its complexity and resistance to current computational methods of analysis.
  4. On individual communication vs mass transit - Krzysztof Zieleniewski
  5. Warp drive - Star Trek vs. reality – Piotr Rożek
    Interstellar travel is essential element of science-fiction. Unfortunately, distances in our galaxy are so large, that using today's technology would take thousands of thousands of years. One of technologies that have some physical justification is used in e.g. Star Trek - warp drive - an engine that would curve the spacetime in specific way that traveling with speeds higher than speed of light would be possible.
  6. Mathematics and collaboration (ODP file with slides) - Krzysztof Gogolewski
    I discussed two highly successful applications of technology to mathematics: improving the Zhang's theorem on bounded gaps between primes and writing a book on homotopy type theory. Computers can assist in two ways: allow communication and organisation (via blog comments, revision control etc.) and find/verify content (finding admissible sets of primes, formal verification of theorems in a book). To preserve rigor, tools used for the second purpose should necessarily be open source.
  7. Learning by playing - Piotr Migdał
    Education should use child's curiosity, rather than inhibit it. Games and playing seem to be natural ways of learning, and have great potential to be used.
  8. About Social Phobia - Marta Czarnocka-Cieciura
    A short description of very common, but not so well known psychiatric disorder.
  9. Chirality in nature - Aleksandra Klimek
  10. Jazz and all that - improvisation, swarm intelligence and ant computations - Daniel Borek
  11. Paradoxes of rationality - Tomek Kołodziejczuk
  12. Polyamory 101 - Marcin Kurczych
  13. The changing map - how to survive interesting times - Petros Polonos
  14. Do It Yourself 2.0 - Maciej Sawicki
  15. How not to screw up an event - Kamila Stępniowska
  16. A few words about animal minds - Zuzanna Borzymowska
  17. LilyPond - software for music notation - Jan Warchoł -
  18. What offends me about "correct Polish"? - Bartłomiej Chromik
    Why standard Polish is perceived to be the only correct variation of this language?
  19. Sign language - the question of identity - Olga Pokorska
  20. Diary studies 101, or what is writing diaries all about - Małgorzata Joanna Adamczyk
  21. In what way does language limit us? - Jakub Ślęzak
  22. Physicist on the stock market II: 8 months later - Grzegorz Link
