As usual, @zephoria frames complexity in a way that does not excuse, but instead invites deeper reflection, especially self-reflection. https://twitter.com/zephoria/status/1172547697498304513

So proud to have given @carlmalamud a home and support for so long. Our association began in 1993 with “Geek of the Week,” (the first podcast IMO) and rarely have I been so happy to be a fanboy and a backstop. https://twitter.com/carlmalamud/status/1172206119252480000

A refreshingly contrarian perspective on #AI. @garymarcus argues that we need to start over with first principles like time, space, and causality if we want AI we can trust. https://nyti.ms/2ZFZ23F
Excellent analysis. The downside risks are enormous, and the upside of action insufficiently considered. It always strikes me as odd that climate mitigation is seen only through the lens of cost rather than through the lens of opportunity. https://theweek.com/articles/850637/deadly-hidden-risks-within-most-prominent-economic-model-climate-change
"When you’re arrested, convicted and sentenced, everything is done for you, automatically. It should be automatic for redemption as well.” The work of @codeforamerica shows how government services done right can transform lives. #ClearMyRecord https://nyti.ms/2LypK4i
Good summary of the @CNN #ClimateTownHall. It is so great to see the impact of @sunrisemvmt in routing around the @DNC to get this critical issue on the table for the 2020 election. Even the @GOP is starting to realize denial is not a winning strategy. https://www.vox.com/2019/9/5/20850009/cnn-climate-town-hall-2020-presidential-democrats-winners-and-losers

I've got to try this! "If you were to place [hotdish recipes] on an X/Y chart where X = how much it looks like barf, and Y = how delicious it is, they would be maxed out on both accounts. That's the charm of a hotdish." https://www.eater.com/2016/5/15/11611558/what-is-hotdish

"that game of both-siderism is really dangerous, and here’s why: The conversation should be about who has power and who is not being given a voice." https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2019/09/rural-white-voters-trump/597160/
Sounds right to me. https://beta.washingtonpost.com/opinions/evangelical-leaders-are-tidying-the-kitchen-while-the-house-burns-down/2019/08/ 29/49d09a14-ca95-11e9-a4f3-c081a126de70_story.html?outputType=amp
And indeed, there are many of us who see that there are lots of small stupid regulations and not enough of those that really affect the powerful. And those of us in tech also build regulatory systems. We know our apps and platforms won't work without them https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2019/08/16/politics/elizabeth-warren-regulations-critic-kfile/index.html?__twitter_impression=true
