@katiezavadski “F---ing Sith Lord,” “Horrific Leakers,” & “Berserkazoid Craziness”: The Mooch Recalls His Brief Shining Fortnight at the Center of US Politics, by @WilliamCohan… Wish he’d been asked about🇷🇺sanctions, RDIF & if he now supports what he opposed at #WEF17?
This is something, coming from a guy who missed the birth of his child—& had his lawyer demand a paternity test?

Does suing CNN & forcing a journo to resign for accurate reporting have permanent benefits?
World chess body has Swiss bank accounts frozen after (Putin-linked) president is accused of links to ISIS oil deals… After @Kasparov63 failed to have him removed, maybe Team Spectre decided enough was enough—& this was the only way to take back the org?

As per ⬆️, an excellent post by @katiezavadski, examining RDIF & Dmietiev! And a great thread follows. Hope to see Scaramucci, Thiel & Goldman Sachs looped in, just in time for Davos!
@katiezavadski So T-rump, Scaramucci & Mnuchin are going to #WEF2018. What about Schwarzman, Bonderman, Black & or WEF Young Global Leaders Dmietriev & Thiel? Or Milner? Is there an RDIF reunion scheduled?

Also, out of curiousity, any chess tourneys or events scheduled?
@katiezavadski Wonder if Scaramucci can get another reporter canned for accurately reporting on what he said in public at #WEF, like he did last year? Or were his legal threats to CNN enough to prevent anyone from taking the risk? Are the Mooch & Thiel now press-proof?

Thinking a lot lately about the VIPization of American culture & how its displaced the notion of equality. Curious about when this started..
I'd like to read a history of VIP sections:)When did they become mainstream/acceptable/legitimate? How are they justified to kids?Any recs?
By legitimizing VIP sections, the #loligarchy has commoditized inequality & aspiration & even my hypocrisy;) Can't we do & build better?

Why is O'Malley still running? There is no way a white man will be either Hillary's (Castro) or Bernie's (Warren?) choice for VP. #DemDebate
"You'll be very happy...I'll let you talk then" #shhhO'Malley
I still wouldn't recognize O'Malley if I saw him in the supermarket. #DemDebate

yes...which is why the OpenAI team's lack of diversity is so discomfiting....
Long @NewYorker profile on Bostrom & the state of AI; not a single woman (unnamed wife aside) mentioned or quoteILtp
If OpenAI is not committed to offering open access to their data, is the "Open" just sqLi4KSCoJ

Is the % of journalism comprised of journalists writing about journalism &/or about other journalists steadily increasing?
Contemporaneous w/ the rise of "selfies" maybe journalists writing about other journalists is its equivalent-selfie journalism-"sournalism"!
Peak sournalism: when journalists go beyond writing about journalists & journalism-& become the story itsrohZSZBJ

New data suggest GOP 2016 nominee will need to win nearly half of Latino vote #lol…
Given voter demographics, campaign coverage feels like a fraud perpetuated by a media, flush with CitizensUnited $ & drunk on T-rump clicks
No matter who wins this election (or even if it never fucking ends), the media is lost.

Ex-Googler exposed company-wide pay inequality with crowdsourced spreadsheet How many owe @EricaJoy for a pay bump?…
Btw, @ericajoy did this after Google was caught colluding w/Apple & almost every huge co, to not recruit & keep salaries down, for a DECADE.

Is anyone comparing the amount of media coverage given to each presidential candidate? Wondering how Trump compares to Sanders..
Comparison of the amount of media coverage given to Trump &…RJEB
Are you a journalist who shares this view? If so, there's a solution-STOP writing about Trump-cover Sanders instead!

Experiment confirms quantum theory weirdness; proves reality does not exist until measured
.@BillNye exposed the secret meaning of the universe to @amyschumer Hope quantum weirdness becomes the new universe!
So, the universe isn't telling you anything- its just quantum weirdness you're sensing. But don't worry, until measured, its not reality.

Protip: Don't tell other people how to feel. Even more so if you have more power & privilege than they 8dax #really??
I generally presume most of us have good intentions-& are oft misunderstood. Here-obviously-my compassion was a misguided mistake:( #sorry
Isn't it hilarious to mock other people's feelings about behavior that many have told you makes them uncomfortable?

Hmmm: based on prior user behavior, Twitter can tell if a certain @verified user tweets about a woman, when it'll spawn abuse from followers
Given a consistent pattern of threats & abuse, at what point will Twitter & @verified user become liable for the predictable harm caused?
This is what we, as a community, allow and enable--and putting up with it makes us responsible for it. Our participation legitimates it.

Palantir founder charged w/ sexual assault… Banned from Stanford for 10 years, Lonsdale blames her mom & rape culture?
Stanford ban aside, if that letter is indicative of Lonsdale's judgment (or his teams), should Palantir be trusted w/ nat'l & corp security?
Would you trust your most sensitive data to a company that was started & is run by a 31 yo who dates his 20 yo intern? Should the Pentagon?

Just how is it a pipeline problem when most of those dudes (jobs, zuck, ev, jack etc) don't have degrees & didn't study CS or engineering?
when only women & POC need qualifications, the real pipeline problem isn't education, its blockage by the status
Black women are the most educated group in the US. Yet, Facebook claims its abysmal diversity is pipeline problem?…

Dear people I admire, WHY ARE YOU STILL TALKING ABOUT DONALD TRUMP?? Don't you know he's the spawn of Voldemort & thus must not be named?
From 1990:… (for decades we've been complicit--the media & political establishment even more so) #loligarqogA

Rt @escapist Obama: "Listen, I'll take responsibility. I'm the president.". (Music to my lil ears)
In the shadow of our future, these (from @Potus's cabinet too) are even more heartbreaking to read.… #loligarchy
Not emotionally or ideologically prepared; can his Farewell rival my favorite Obama speech? #ThanksObama…
