@katiezavadski “F---ing Sith Lord,” “Horrific Leakers,” & “Berserkazoid Craziness”: The Mooch Recalls His Brief Shining Fortnight at the Center of US Politics, by @WilliamCohanvanityfair.com/news/2018/02/t… 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?

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?
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?
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

yes...which is why the OpenAI team's lack of diversity is so discomfiting....
Despite what its marketing suggests, Anomalisa is as heartwarming or life-affirming/life-changing as an episode of The Affair. (aka its not)
(Anomalisa is still an incredible film-but, "the most human film" it is not...its more man than human...& really, he could be Noah Solloway)

Zite, my favorite ipad app of all time, is shutting down today-thanks finding what I read-& for fostering my obsession w/ quantum weirdness
I really miss Zite; maybe they just don't know me as well, but the other app's algorithms just serve me listsicles & I'm getting stupider...

Venture funded. With an 18 year old founder. Wonder who the default terms of the contracts it "writes" wil
Trusting a service to collect signatures, store contracts, or even to provide an NDA (which are realistically unenforceable) is one thing...

"I used to say Osama Bin Laden was the...Donald Trump of the terrorist world." Gina Bennett, CIA analyst #Spymasters
Spymasters interviews all 12 former & current CIA directors...but, since its unclear if its all fiction, Mandy Patinkin is the narrator.

Feel creepy eavesdropping on participant break chatter on #platformcoop livestream...but I don't want to miss the program resuming.
(I'd think nothing of it if I were at #platformcoop-& wish I was-but wish they'd mute the mics as folks prolly don't know they are live)
Socialism doesn't start with a warm kiss..
Socialism starts with cheap champagne, aka Prosecco, which is less alliterative but at least affordable.

Let's say I wanted to capture all the tweets (& users) in support of Amazon's culture ...what app, tool, software etc would you recommend?
Trying to collect tweets that defend or deny Amazon's practices; there are fewer than I'd have guessed-& more quitting than I'd think.

Et tu @icecube? Really? Decades later, as an adult, why doubledown on the misogyny of your youth? Don't words matter?

Confused: doesn't @SenSanders agree with @lessig on campaign finance reform? If so, what is this about?
Also confusing: Rather than supporting single issue candidates or running as one, why doesn't @lessig build ballot initiative campaigns?

Twitter is deleting stolen jokes on copyright grounds #chillingtheverge.com/2015/7/25/9039…
Misleading celebs & joke aggregator accounts that copy but don't credit are lame-but, will taking down tweets much later deter them at all?
