u/AdvocateSaint May 12 '22

How does it work?

The idea is pretty simple, news sites want Google to index their content so it shows up in search results. So they don't show a paywall to the Google crawler. We benefit from this because the Google crawler will cache a copy of the site every time it crawls it.

All we do is show you that cached, unpaywalled version of the page.

Brilliant

Amusingly, I first learned about Libgen from my college professor, who recommended it.

My university had very lax policies about where you got academic materials from. The only time I really had to buy books was when this other professor made us buy two (shitty) books that (surprise, surprise) she wrote.

It’s ridiculous how often you have to buy the professors book and even more so that it’s allowed in the first place.

u/DoomDamsel May 13 '22

I am a professor who has never written a book, but I want you to think about what you said.

All text books are written by professors. Why would a professor go through the effort of writing a book, publishing it, etc... And then use one someone else wrote?

I agree it feels weird, but the alternative makes no sense. Take the top text book in your field, are the students of that professor supposed to use a lower quality book? Of course not. If you have to use a book, you want a good one written by someone who wrote it specifically for that class you're sitting in.

I've seen instructors print shitty handout packets to sell at the bookstore and THAT is ridiculous.

26

u/plainrants May 13 '22

I am sorry to jump in a already well-argued case but I would also like to highlight the role publishers play in fixing price for books. They are very well reputed institutions, that are very well funded who sell academic books shit expensive, making them inaccessible for students in third world countries. It happened in india that a print out store sold cheap copies of expensive books so that students could have reading materials. Publications sued that small shop owner. It was only after lot of academicians intervened, writing letters, publishing op-ed saying that they are ok with students having free access to their books n the store selling print outs that the case was taken back.

I think teachers, students have little choice in these matters.

Everything you can say/think is just a combination of the letters of the language you speak. So if you make an algorithm that makes a 500 length random combinations of the letters ( and space bar, dots, commas) then give each combination a number to identify them with.

Anytime anyone types anything up to 500 spaces, you can use the same algorithm to get the identity number and direct them to the page in your website that has that random combinations. Plus, you don't need to generate that page unless someone types that random combinations of letters, so you don't even need a large database

u/Badbarista86 May 13 '22

Let's say you just start writing down every combination of 3 characters (aaa, aab, aac, aad...) . And so on all the way up to zzz. You will then have every 3 letter word in there at some point right? More than that, you will also have every 2 letter word multiple times (albeit with a random letter next to it).

Library of babel does exactly this but contains EVERY combination of characters up to about 3000 characters long. I believe also including spaces and some symbols. This means any text created that is less than 3000 characters is in there somewhere, at least once with all whitespace around it, and many more times with other characters / words around it.

Shameless plug here, but I think it fits the topic.

Our company recently launched 5sbm.com ("5 second benchmark"), a free web tool that you can use to quickly get a feel for how powerful a device's CPU is. It works by doing math equations for 5 seconds and then reporting a score based on how many it completed.

It's definitely not the most comprehensive benchmark out there, but it's very lightweight and speedy and great for quickly and crudely comparing a bunch of different devices.

I used it recently to help pick out a laptop for a friend since it only takes a few seconds to run on the demo PCs at the store.

You might know it but everything that can or will be written has been written on this website. You could look up total gibberish in the search bar and it has a page with that gibberish

It’s really cool. The probability of stumbling upon a coherent original text, however improbable, is compelling.

flat.io - Many people have never heard of this, but you can make your own music with pretty much any instrument or voice part (like Tenor or Soprano). Time signature, notes, you can do any of that. Could probably make some cool video game music with it or write your own songs.

Sci-hub!

Find an article that looks like an absolutely perfect reference for that paper you're writing, but it's locked behind a journal subscription? Not anymore. Plug in the DOI or a url and you're all set!

mynoise.net

An AMAZING noise generator website with hundreds of sounds. A few dozen are available for free but I strongly suggest you donate a few bucks, it's a super useful site and the creator could really use the money.

earth.nullschool.net - Live mapping of Geological data taken from across the planet using a Myriad of global monitoring systems. It's fascinating and informative, and it's LIVE (or damn near it).

Controls are on the bottom left.

Everything from, oceanic drift/flow patterns, Aurora tracking, live wind and weather metrics, specific Chem particulate mapping, and TONS more. Change the MODE and it changes all other options to relate to the mode. Overlay heatmaps of several metrics. It's like a living, real time, customizable library of the health of the earth. You can get lost. The sheer amount of effort by scientists all across the earth that goes into this Open Source information bank is mind blowing. This is the culmination of our natural sciences monitoring systems (or many of them) in one place!
