.@TwitterA11y, people with disabilities need things to be accessible on BOTH ends.

The fact that the #AltText process is not easier on the writer’s end can make it difficult for #spoonie peeps & those with #cfsme to make posts that are accessible for the #VisuallyImpaired.
I know others are working on it, but with all of the algorithms out there, it should be possible to make viewable *predicted* text of what’s in a picture, so we can quickly approve it, or make edits.

That wouldn’t just “make life easier.” It’s about #accessibility & #autonomy.
#Disabled autonomy is more important than than many abled ppl realize.

So many things in our lives are based on the assumption that we “have someone to help us,” simply bc systems are falling short. It’s #ableist, & forces us to rely on others. We may not HAVE others available.

1/10: Do state actions affect the #psych #wellbeing of govt benefit recipients? In a new #openaccess @JPART1991 paper, @MartinBaekgaard, @SassMikkelsen, @JonasKrogh and I investigate this in the context of Danish #unemployment benefits. Short answer: Yes! academic.oup.com/jpart/advance-…
2/10: To test the question, we rely on survey, quasi, & natural experimental evidence, utilizing the fact that in March last year, as part of the #COVID19dk #lockdown, the usually strict active #labormarket policies of DK were suddenly suspended -> benefits became unconditional.
3/10: In other words, from 1 day to the next, unemployed ppl did no longer have to comply with a lot of demands (job training, work requirements, mandatory control meetings with caseworkers, documentation requirements, etc.) to receive benefits. What happened to their well-being?

The news cycle is a confusing space sometimes;

Eg1.
- #ElectricCars are the future for the planet
V's
- Mining #Lithium batteries is destroying parts of Bolivia/Chile/Argentina

2.
- Decentralised #Cryptocurrencies are the future
V's
- Mining #Bitcoin = huge energy consumption
The narrative around everything nowadays is all about #Values

Corporates latch onto every opportunity

Individuals the same (just read some of the stuff on LinkedIn) 🧐

Life & business is essentially a game
#Winning is always key! (Be nice tho)

The rest is Perception=Reality
I'm a #football fan & I see a footy angle in almost everything I read! 🧐

Not sure if these connections stand up, but here's what I saw;

- #Bolivia former President #EvoMorales was ousted in 2019. Evo a #SimonBolivar anti-imperialist styled leader

The people behind #CommunicationRights are not obstructionist behaviorists. @NeuroClastic has speech language pathologists, psychologists, educators, OTs, MTs, researchers, neuroscientists, & nonspeakers who communicate through AAC, spelling, & sign. #ActuallyAutistic #Autism
These people may have an aggressive approach to bullying autistics & our allies out of our own narratives & using their white (that's all white people) privilege to maintain the #monopoly on #Autism, but they are NOT allies. They are #oppressors. We can and do communicate. See?
We have orgs, individuals, & initiatives championing #CommunicationRights. @U4CommChoice @Communica1st @ekverstania @autselfadvocacy @awnnetwork_ @ReachEveryVoice and so many more. It's 2020, and we are #nonCompliant with a #Behaviorist agenda that parades itself as #science.

Can't agree more about most #DAO projects are like countries with parliaments but without the relevant executive #government @verbine Would love to incorporate an executive structure to Digital Native Organizations #DNO on #Autonomy Network. Thread here 👇👇👇
For the success of Community owned organizations and Digital companies there is a need for a strong executive team while I also feel a need for a strong governance council. #token #governance models #cryptonetworks
To solve some of the short comings of #DAO models we are proposing a model of Digital Native Organizations(DNO) with

1. Digital Ownership
2. Governance with decentralization as a range rather than a state
3. Token incentives for all stakeholders

#Autonomy Network #crypto #DNO

The paradox of #decentralization and team #Leadership defines the future of #Crypto ecosystem. Excited to share my perspective on progressive decentralization in this thread
It starts with the purpose of the token. Is the project using the token to enable community ownership or is it predominantly inclined towards crowd funding ? #tokenization #crypto
Tokens inclined towards #Community #Ownership are on the right path towards progressive decentralization

"Actions speak louder than words" "Speak softly and acquire a bigger stick" Ignore the #DumbExperts who can't even interpret govt policy from its actions and keep asking govt to spell it out for them in words😢: business-standard.com/article/defenc…
2/ The commentariat has difficulty in deriving Govt policy intent from actions, only when the implication is positive, they find it very easy to unambiguously divine Govt's policy intentions from statements of random party people, when the implication is negative!🤓🤡
2/def The 21st C version of #Autonomy: One aspect is to develop mutually beneficial strategic relations directly with US allies, without the intermediation of the USA. This will make them immune from vicissitude of US domestic politics.

Personal "data #ownership" - "pure" or otherwise - is a #misnomer, and #rights frameworks clearly struggle when predicated upon notions of #DataSubjects - and when the #value (to others) of information about us lies largely in its #relationships (to others').
I'd unpack @martintisne's first point a bit further; the impacts we experience are of course based in the way we are #discriminated (for or against) by those who treat us as members of a #class by virtue of shared #characteristics on which they pass #judgement - but is that...
..."more" about "other people's #data" or more about the #judgements, and who's making 'em?

While I share concerns around 'purely' individual(istic) rights - "every woman for herself"! - the perils of #GroupRights lie in the degree to which they can undermine what must remain...

Attending @FboroFriday, we're inspired by #aerospace industry leaders and know one thing for certain: the future of aerospace is all about collaboration 🤝

Thanks for having us #FIAConnect!

After an insightful week at @FIAFarnborough, we wanted to share a few of our highlights:
We really enjoyed the #sustainability in #aerospace session: Dr Cristina Garcia-Duffy, Head of Technology – Strategy and Integration at @UKAeroInstitute, shared the ATI market outlook and the aircraft that will be coming into the market between 2020 and 2040+ ✈️🌱
Adefunke Adeyemi @IATA#25by2025 ensures better female representation in senior roles. We wanted an intentional approach from the industry and for the c-suite to walk the talk. At a 2019 EU #aviation event, 30 CEOs of 30 #airlines committed to the initiative" #WomenInAerospace

#miltwitter, #FieldCatering, how can we do it better! A fortune is being spent on #CRV, #IFV, #Robots and #Autonomy but a #Army (#Navy and #Airforce) marches on it stomach attributed to Napoleon Bonaparte. So what is the newest and latest?1/3 Image
What does #good look like? Why are cooks still in tents? Does the catering create a unnecessary Logistics burden that modularity can address. Who has the best Catering system in the world? (The ADF quality is excellent but the deployed facilities are a logistics burden). 2/3 Image

At the request of my new [South-African, obviously] colleague @MPlagis, I swallowed the 163 pages of the #Semenya award yesterday.

It wasn’t the most pleasant literary experience of my life, but at least I learned what a judicial ‘hot tub’ is.

Here is a book review:

#Sportslaw
1. In short, what is interesting in the award is actually also what the #CAS forgot to mentioned in its press release, the core of #IAAF’s winning case turns on the concepts of ‘biological males’ & ‘sports sex’.

#Semenya #Autonomy #Sportslaw
2. But let me start by regretting that the #CAS hearing was not public because @caster800m’s testimony (see paras 73-87) recalling what she went through since 2009 would have deserved a global audience.

1/ #medtwitter #twitternists #proudtobeGIM

I've been sitting on a @SocietyGIM #sgim19 debrief #medthread since the meeting, and thought I might finally take a swing at it - here goes ..

I am considering whether I can do more division/systems leadership in coming years .. ->
2/ Theme of the conference was 'Courage to Lead', and single best workshop for me was :

Crediting Alfred Burger, Emily Fondahn, Brent Petty, Nathan Spell, Dan Steinberg - can't find them on Twitter, so giving proper 🗣🗣.
3/ would like to share key concepts for all of us trying to lead in academic medicine or in #advocacy spaces.

First key Slide/thoughts:

$Uber’s and $LYFT’s disappointing debut seems to be impacting “innovation” stocks more broadly. Two problems nullify that relationship:
First, $UBER and $LYFT no longer are innovators, as #autonomy will destroy their business models.
Second, given the serious overvaluation in private relative to public equities, many more $IPOs will fail. We see many like for like companies valued in the private markets at 2-15 times those in the public markets as measured on price-to-sales.

@auricules @mikydoyle @Matt_S_Stephens A)
It's the other side of the coin - females are to remain pure while males are expected to aggressively pursue sex. Both types of shaming target those who exclude themselves from the sexually economy of commodity vs shared experience.
Value is placed on gender adherence to...
@auricules @mikydoyle @Matt_S_Stephens B)
...one's assigned role i.e. supply/demand.

Females supply their bodies.
Males demand use of bodies.

Both must maintain reputation in spite of mixed messaging & what they actually want (or DON'T want.)

Yet this system is painted as somehow virtuous.
@auricules @mikydoyle @Matt_S_Stephens C)
In doing so, predators are excused from harmful behaviour. Targets are quantified according to gender, perceived level of attraction, ect
Girls don't report assault for fear of disbelief.
Boys fear being labeled homosexual.

Sex offenders are judged & prosecuted differently...

1/ What's wrong with #lawfirm compensation? Let @jordan_law21 count the ways.As predicted 🔮 (by me, about what I was going to do 😇), a #tweetstorm. First the link: law21.ca/2018/09/how-co…
2/ Next, my favorite #micdrop 🎤 quote: "law firms incentivize their lawyers to act in ways that are counter-productive to lwayers' happiness, clients' satisfaction and the firms' effectiveness." and 💥goes the 🧨-- more #truthbombs follow.
3/ 💯 agree that legacy compensation systems (and the attendant infrastructure of #tech, #process, #policy, governance as well as resulting #culture) emphasizes #lawyer effort over #client outcomes (namely, the billable hour). BUT I add here: what would be a better #alternative?
