Sorry to burst your bubble, but don’t all Americans live in their own little worlds?
> The entire framework of the “bubble” conversation reinforces, unintentionally or not, the bias that the “real America” is white, rural and Christian. White Christian conservatives, according to what appears is the dominant assumption, have no bubble to escape because they have ownership over the social norms and cultural conventions of American identity. The atheistic, lesbian nurse in Chicago or the Muslim schoolteacher in Los Angeles should not have the expectation that the “real America” will make accommodations to understand her, but she does toil under the pressure to appreciate the “real America,” even as mainstream discourse implies that she is not part of that parochial precinct.

Rbenv and Bundler
> I have been an occasional user of RVM to date. I like the problems that it solves; the ability to switch between different versions of Ruby and isolate per-project installs of Gems. But I just can’t gel with the way that it solves them. Aside from arguments about curl | sh installs and shell overrides, it just feels like there is too much magic involved. I’m not a fan of magic.

Keeping Your Bundler Gems Isolated
> I recently switched my laptop from rvm to rbenv.
>
> The first time I ran bundle install in a project, it installed all of the gems into the gem directory for the Ruby version I was using with rbenv. I was hoping it would keep them isolated to the project.
>
> Although it's not automatic, this is easy to do:
> bundle config path vendor/bundle
> Now bundler will install all gems into the vendor/bundle directory of each of your projects. You should probably add that directory to .gitignore.

Making use of Data Skills
Data Carpentry learners and instructors come from a variety of backgrounds and research disciplines. Many of us, myself included, don’t think of ourselves as “computer people.” We’re here because, at some point in our career, we found ourselves doing repetitive and error-prone computational tasks by hand when someone looked over our shoulder and said “Why on earth are you doing it like that!?” This person may then have leaned over our keyboard, typed for a few minutes, and finished the work that would have taken us the rest of the day. At least in my case, this happened routinely, every time a certain person happened to walk past my work station, until it eventually became more work to try to justify my process (“But I only have to do this once”. I’d say) than to capitulate and try to learn the computer magic.
