The real name policy is foolish anyway, but it goes beyond that when they can't even recognize what constitutes a name. There are so many variations that they should simply accept names, they can't disprove them anyway.
I kind of want to yell at them and say, look, if I want to read a person's posts, I want to see them all so I can decide which ones I'll read and which ones I want to skip. Gah!
I met Marc Roth last week and was inspired by his personal story -- he got himself a membership at the TechShop in SF while he was homeless, taught himself how to use the machines, became a TechShop instructor and now has his own business!
He has a vision for a Learning Shelter -- a makerspace, shelter and 90-day training program to give its participants (all homeless) the skills and experience they need to get a job.
I think this would be an amazing opportunity for our SF tech community to apply our skills & expertise in order to help our neighbors. But first it needs to exist!
There are only 4 days left to his Indiegogo campaign and he needs our help to make this happen!
On the left in the included picture is a random starting grid. Sometimes I like to fold a grid to make it more symmetrical (arguably unnecessary in this case, but I just needed an example). The two colors are just to make it easier to see where new bits are added.
On some occasions, it's like I folded a piece of paper up the middle with wet paint so that the patterns on both sides get mirrored. Then I get example A.
On other occasions, it's like the wet paint was on one side of the fold so that there's only new pattern on the side that didn't have paint. Then I get example B.
I've been thinking of A as "mirrored on itself" and B as "mirrored", but I am quite certain that if I use those as terminology that people will be confused because they're too similar.
So. Does anyone know of standard terminology for this sort of thing? Have ideas for better terminology? I'm vaguely considering "folded" vs. "mirrored", but am not sure that's right either.
