When I think of Chomsky and Foucault, they'll always be encased in amber of this wonderful public discussion from 1971. Thoughtful, courteous, values-driven. youtube.com/watch?v=xpVQ3l…
Spinoza on early modern cancel culture (given the reception of his Theological-Political Treatise, which was both widely banned and condemned "[a] work “forged in Hell by a renegade Jew and the Devil", Spinoza was hardly being paranoid).

That, and everyone should be free to live their lives as they wish without an external power telling them how (be it church, gvt or social pressure). And we get our right to live freely by reciprocating and respecting the freedom and dignity of others... twitter.com/clairlemon/sta…
Today in 1837, in Kensington Palace, an 18 year old Victoria heard that her uncle had died and she was now Queen. Her first requests were for a separate bedroom (she had always been forced to sleep with her mother) and an hour alone every day (hitherto forbidden).

I didn't think I'd read this book but now I'm sure I will. Oh, wait... (Sounds fantastic - congrats @davidmcraney) twitter.com/davidmcraney/s…
Incredible. Putin now has whipped the Russian people into a hate filled hysteria against sovereign Ukraine. Massive destruction of the cities and innocent civilians. Outright piracy of grain. Now the objective is destruction of the state…. and a people. twitter.com/TimothyDSnyder…

Absolutely nailed on that if we had a Labour government the story of a PM trying to appoint a mistress to a key post in government at public expense would be leading the news, rail strike or no rail strike.And if newspapers were deliberately suppressing the story having run it1/2

Another magnificent blast of insight from @sosofancy on the sham and shortcomings of the ESG debate - and better ways to spur real action. Enjoy and retweet! medium.com/@sosofancy/the…
@ciarancannon Read it myself. If get chance read @kncukier ‘Framers’ book. There is a trick being missed I think in how we understand it all

Now I'm very nervous as to what the context was... I'm sure I said it -- only worry what I meant by it! Will have to listen to the show anew! twitter.com/nbrez/status/1…
Just released by @nathanbenaich: a crowdsourced database cataloging 143 university spinouts. If you're in academia and thinking of starting your company, this is a must-read. Lots of great insights. twitter.com/nathanbenaich/…

remember how yesterday i said that academia had its own problems? this is a great report on one: the all-too often cumbersome process of spinning out companies from academic research. we need our academies, but (many of) our academies need to do better twitter.com/nathanbenaich/…

I vote for data - not blindly but because it's better than the alternatives: an unexamined view of reality. twitter.com/IAI_TV/status/…
Recent discussion on Shangri-la Dialogue and the Chinese/US speeches as well as China’s moves in the South Pacific. Bottom line, the US needs to up its game and get ahead of the narrative and diplomatic context China is setting: youtu.be/rc-6aMvvboE

Brilliant. To explain the brain, there's no one better than @davideagleman twitter.com/davideagleman/…
Can't stop thinking about Roman Ratushnyi. In the US, people like him run for Congress and become prominent politicians. He too could've pursued a career in politics but died in battle against Russia. Roman was 24,he was one of the best in his generation.A huge loss for #Ukraine.

Likewise! And I loved your Abraham Wald reference on looking where the bullet hole aren't, not where they are. Deeply relevant. (And a great example of reframing a problem...) twitter.com/RupakGhose/sta…
Had a fabulous time learning from my co-panelists... and thinking: "OK, so regulating AI is going to be even harder than I have long thought!" Very productive conversation with excellent questions from the @USChamber's AI commission members. twitter.com/USChamberTech/…
Wonderful conversation with the great @nbrez on the power of mental models - and how we can improve the world by changing how we choose to see the world. #framers twitter.com/nbrez/status/1…
Is it time to embrace a human-centred rather than data-centred science, or is Big Data making scientific theories obsolete? @kncukier, @j2bryson and @NoortjeMarres lock horns over the limits of Big Data. @LukeRobertMason hosts. iai.tv/video/dreams-d…

My favorite conversation about #framers - with a remarkable writer, thinker and person, @nbrez. We didn't talk AI or business or data or politics.. but about society, mindfulness, tolerance... and improving oneself to improve the world! twitter.com/nbrez/status/1…
THREAD Let's start a long thread about how Russian book market prepared Russians for a full-scale war against Ukraine, NATO, the West, and promoted stalinism and nazism, and how this was ignored by the West. Keep seat belts fasten, you will see a lot of nasty things here.

Today the front pages of @dallasnews @HoustonChron @ExpressNews @statesman all carried our story on Chief Arredondo. I don’t know of another time this has happened. Grateful to these papers for trusting our reporting and sharing it with their readers. texastribune.org/2022/06/09/uva…

“Russian Warship - Go Fuck Yourself” coffee in one of my local supermarkets in Kyiv. Quite attractively priced as well.

The fight to keep Boris Johnson in office leaves no space for proper strategy or policy. All the policies that appear from the PM from now on will be rushed, rehashed desperate attempts to prolong his survival by another few months. The UK cannot be governed in this way. twitter.com/bbcquestiontim…

Or they're thinking deeply how to be effective knowing that one only gets a few swipes at the monster and can't be seen to be hysterical or a broken record... It's not obvious how to defang the beast. twitter.com/dangillmor/sta…
@kncukier The bits aren’t ready to run the show yet, Kenn. Give them a few years, though, and all bets are off. 😎

Looks great. But I'm confused, dear @cccalum: why the human instructors when you're supposed to have bots running the show?! That said, can't wait...! twitter.com/cccalum/status…

Thoughtful thread by @TimothyDSnyder against giving Putin an offramp in Ukraine. But it may not be correct. Another way to frame things is that if ending the killing is the aim, then an offramp is useful - though we'd still need to deter future Russian aggression at every step. twitter.com/TimothyDSnyder…
