I have a Treisman story, but actually it's a @JoeBiden & @DrBiden story, or maybe it's a story about my mom, or about expertise & competence.

I met Uri Treisman [@uritr] once & said "my mom says hi" & he said "who's your mom?" so I told him & he said "your mom is famous!" 🧵 1/
Spoiler: My mom is not famous.

Treisman was at @TeachersCollege for a math edu colloquium, & I said that he & I were the only ones in that room to know who my mom is: True ✅

People can be famous in specific circles. Outside (& inside👀) edu spaces, many don't know Treisman. 2/ Image
Look Treisman up. His work in (math) education is important!

Meanwhile: My mom is a child psychiatrist & if she has a claim to fame it's probably that she has worked on @PBS' cartoon Arthur [@arthurpbs] for so long that they made her into a character!

1. I didn't watch the #DemocraticNationalConvention. But when I'd read allegations that the words "under God" were removed from the Pledge of Allegiance during the event, I looked into it. Here are clips from all four nights when the Pledge was recited.

SARAH COOPER!!!! @sarahcpr
This conversation with those that were “voted off the island” is really something. Gives me so much hope. It is the America of unity, not division. #DemocraticNationalConvention

Last night of the #DemocraticNationalConvention. Two reminders:

1. Anything other than support for the Biden-Harris ticket in my mentions after this, all 100lbs of me will karate chop you Miss Piggy-style.

2. If you text or DM during the convention, I know you don't know me.
This clip titled "this time next year" is wonderful. Reinforces the message of a better tomorrow, post-Trump and with a President Biden. I look forward to a 2021 filled with hope.
Really good idea to have Yang with his highly activated YangGang at this convention.

Night 3 of the #DemocraticNationalConvention is stacked with powerhouse voices including:
Gabrielle Giffords
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham
Secretary Hillary Clinton
Speaker Nancy Pelosi
Sen. Elizabeth Warren
President Barack Obama
Sen. Kamala Harris
Expect rage tweeting from Trump
The focus on gun violence at the #DemocraticNationalConvention should make it clear that both parties are NOT the same. No, it isn't a choice between the better of 2 evils. There is only one evil: Trump-GOP, in bed with the NRA, a death cult unconcerned about the lives of victims
I remember the day Gabby Giffords was shot and I cried in my kitchen. Watching her come so far is inspiring. So so so so so so so very grateful that she is still alive and still fighting for righteousness.

Former @VP44 @JoeBiden has officially been nominated to be @TheDemocrats’ candidate for @POTUS after an unprecedented virtual roll call across 57 states & territories.
I loved seeing our union’s diversity tonight. There’s never been a presidential race or #DemConvention like 2020 ImageImageImageImage
The @AP reported on the reimagined roll call at the #DemocraticNationalConvention apps.npr.org/liveblogs/2020… A distributed experience was arresting & interesting. (I had wondered about including uniformed military in Guam; that was an error in judgment but it didn’t mar the moment.) ImageImageImageImage
Leave the delegates.
Take the calamari.

5 minutes into Day 2 of the #DemocraticNationalConvention and I still have to say, the Dems have made the best of this format. This keynote is a great reminder of the grassroots people power of the Democratic Party. Not one Qanon nut in sight.
This keynote is making it clear that we have an impressive and diverse Democratic bench.
I am so old school partisan Democratic that I enjoy these endorsements from the Kennedys and the Carters.

I can admit when I’m wrong.

This was much better done than I would have ever dared hope. #DemocraticNationalConvention
I really hope there’s a WhyWeRan website that this is directing people toward.
Can’t really go wrong handing off to Stacey Abrams for the big finish. #DemocraticNationalConvention

Kind of beautiful watching this intro with diverse faces that look like my America -- America, the beautiful.
My God -- the Democrats are knocking this out of the park. It is only 5 min in - and despite not being "live" and "in person together," I am literally weeping.

Aldo Martinez: "Due to the lack of leadership from this administration I've seen the worst of the worst. I know only because I have answered thousands of calls from people that are sick."

Aldo is a #DACA recipient and frontline responder.

.@amyklobuchar: “The President may hate the Post Office, but he is still going to need to send a change of address card come November.”

This is exactly why we should fund USPS, not the wall.
