Hey, did you know you can access aggregate voter data from Florida's elections? dos.myflorida.com/elections/data…
The data are not user friendly. You download a zip file, which contains .txt files for each county. You can copy and past into a spreadsheet or upload into a statistical software package. #OpenAccess #Elections dos.myflorida.com/elections/data…
Weird thing though: the aggregate voter information is there for most of the counties, but NOT PALM BEACH @pbpost . The # registered in each precinct is missing. So are the # of votes for each candidate. Just zeros. At least as of today.

0/ Can you believe we're already 10% through the year!? When you consider all that's transpired in the #crypto/#blockchain so far in 2019, that fact becomes less surprising.

Below, a 17-part thread based on what went down over the past day or so. Helping you stay informed!
1/ 🤝 @AirSwap's [ $AST ] @Crypto_Bobby announced the team's newfound "ability to support fiat on-ramp directly on AirSwap through [their] integration with" @SendWyre.

Fiat<-->#Crypto within users' self-custodied wallet, all whilst using #AirSwap's trading interface!
2/ 🐟 @Ethereum Foundation grantee @LeapDAO - a decentralized adaptive organization delivering layer-two Ethereum scalability as a global public utility - revealed its first public deployment of a Plasma Network! leapdao.org/blog/Plasma-Te…

A #data informed look at how the #human experience of #lawyering has changed over time.

Just as #clients need better #value propositions, #law firms need better business models. Meaningful #legal #transformation will occur where the two intersect.

legalevolution.org/2019/02/pay-ho…
H/T to @augierakow @robsaccone for the post #inspirelegal 🤓 email chain that #inspired this tweetable.

(Bc I’m a tweetable factory. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Another reaction to this @wihender post: we NEED to deal with #automation anxiety in #legal.

Legacy models of law practice aren’t built for the pace of #business and volume of #information of the #digital age.

More #hours from more #lawyers can’t be the default answer.

Last month a friend asked me "what's the best resource you've read thus far on human decision-making?" 1/
After thinking about it, I decided to recommend her one of the first such resources I ever encountered, seven years ago: Doug Hubbard (@hubbardaie)'s How to Measure Anything. 2/ amazon.com/How-Measure-An…
While I don't agree with every word of it, How to Measure Anything is quite possibly the most important and useful book I've ever read on any topic. Here's why. 3/

Another card consolidation scheme. "Curve".
Whether you're a small business or a giant payments provider, if some nobody startup tries to wedge itself between you and your customers, f$%^ them up, with extreme prejudice. Seriously.
My previous comments on Curve's lazy, cynical, parasitic business model:
Another failed scheme from a few years ago, "Fuze"

Below, I've condensed 19 of Friday's #crypto developments into one single #Twitter thread. All for your convenience. Enjoy!
1/ 🗽 New York State's D.F.S. granted both @LibertyX (fiat-to-#bitcoin service) and @RobinhoodApp (#crypto exchange) a #BitLicense to operate their respective businesses in the state of #NewYork. The latter also received a money transmitter license. dfs.ny.gov/about/press/pr…
2/ 📊 Social, peer-to-peer user #data network @3Boxdb has partnered with @AlethioEthstats to deliver the first #Ethereum block explorer with built-in social profiling functionality.

A new paper in @sciencemagazine from #Belkaid lab at #NIH described an #alternative differentiation #pathway for #commensal-specific T cells in presence of inflammation. Do the data presented support conclusions? Let's dive in.

science.sciencemag.org/content/363/64…
1. #Commnesal S. epidermidis–specific -#MIIINA:H2-M3+ CD8+ T cells ordinarily differentiate into Tc1 or Tc17 subsets. However, when co-exposed to chitin or sand fly (source of #inflammation), Tc17 subset also produce type II cytokines.
2. In such condition, type II #cytokines such as IL-5 or IL-13 are produced by CCR6+ Tc17 cells (out of which 30% are IL-17+). However, there is no overlap between IL-17+ and IL-5+/IL-13+ CD8+ T cells. So, the authors conclusion about "paradoxical phenotype" is unsubstantiated.

1. Let me share my #MSExcel story to encourage learning.

Despite being an accounting student, the 1st time I saw MS Excel was during the 6 months #EndASSUstrike of 2003 or so, I was in 300L. I enrolled for a Desktop publishing training at a business centre.
2. Desktop Publishing was very popular then, following the Y2K computer compliance. Someone came to the business centre to do some printing jobs. The operator opened MS Excel to calculate his cost and I wondered what the grid lines were all about. I wanted to know more.
3. He couldn't really teach or tell me more about it as his focus was on Corel Draw but I was amazed at how some grid lines would add up figures. Seeing A,B,C....on one side and 1,2,3 on another side with lines joining them, for me was a miracle. I was very fast with typing

Apple has a section of their website answering questions doctors may have regarding their latest #ECG technology. Where are the answers to the REAL questions #patients want to know about? For example, if I get an alert:

We have begun collecting all human behaviour and putting the machine in between human beings and every transaction in life. In doing that, we are increasingly operating our society on a new basis.
The omnipresent smartphones and digital businesses around us have caused a permanent shift in our societies.
We are now operating with a new form of social science that we don't understand yet, but which we are already using in much the same way that physics was used to change European society in the 17th and 18th centuries.

0/ Investors breathed easier today as the price of large-cap digital assets like #bitcoin [ $BTC ] and #ether [ $ETH ] managed to hold steady.

Whilst many were glued to the charts, I was trawling through the interwebs for the latest from the world of #crypto. You're welcome 😉
1/ 📣 Fresh from launching v1.1.3 of its #mainnet, @NULSservice [ $NULS ] detailed the design architecture of NULS 2.0 in the below 23-page paper.

Allows #NULS to be more than just the underlying infrastructure of the #blockchain. Many more uses to come! nuls.io/api/v1/downloa…
2/ ⛏️ @UbiqSmart [ $UBQ ] has successfully hard-forked to #Ubqhash.

Having done so, Ubiq is now decoupled from #Ethash and, thus, is no longer vulnerable to rental hash attacks. This marks the first time an #Ethereum fork has forked to a PoW mining algorithm.

[THREAD] As a systematic public market investor, #VentureCapital was an asset class that felt opaque to me based on only my limited exposure of #AngelInvesting & my friends in the industry. In this article, I set the context for Unpacking Alpha in Venture Capital.
1.) It is a challenging asset class to digest & I am sure a majority of large institutional pools of capital would struggle to list more than a handful of brand name VC firms or investors.
2.) That said, top decile returns in VC are extremely impressive so I decided to take a deeper look with a view to create an ecology map & building an institutional footprint from first principles.
