19 August 2021 – What I Learned Today

  1. Many classrooms on campus are in bad shape.
  2. It is not easy to do batch work in OAKS.
  3. There are at least two kinds of mindfulness approaches, one based on simple mindfulness and one based on compassion. Both are effective at improving affect, but may have somewhat different impacts on other-regarding behavior (compassion seems more likely to invoke stronger benevolence towards others).

Rose: I had a nice walk with my wife this morning.

Bud: Learning more about mindfulness.

Thorn: Not being able to easily batch tasks in OAKS.
