How do we do history?
And who does it?

Big questions to start with! But I want us to think methods.

In this paper I'll be looking at railway history, but it applies to all 'types' of history really.

I want to make the case for collaboration & breaking barriers.

2/15 I'm thinking from an academic & a British context - but we see hints there may be similarities elsewhere (@DrJSchramm's paper, next, is a good fit!).

We're fortunate so many people are interested in railway history - a great advantage over other topics.

3/15 There's a long & rich tradition of openness in railway history, bringing together lots of different types of researcher: amateur, enthusiast, academic, & more.

The @JTransportHist, for example, started off over 60 yrs ago as a mix of amateur & academic work.

We’ve just had a paper published and I would like to tell you a story about people in science being nice to each other – a thread…
This is a large, collaborative effort – 54 authors across multiple institutions, led @MountSinaiNYC and @CVRinfo. But the science in the story is quite simple (and you can read it in the paper), so I’ll explain it quickly before telling a different story (which you cannot)
Briefly, here’s the science of it. THE BACKGROUND: (i) Viruses need to make mRNA that host ribosomes can translate into proteins Baltimore classification of viruses

Thread > Temporary public realm changes: 10-point checklist

How can spaces adapt for the new normal?

A challenge for local authorities and others, for legal and planning frameworks, and creativity in re-imagining hidden and underused spaces.

Thanks to @DrSDMillington (1/12)
1. #Safety

Barriers between people and traffic need careful consideration - TFL research suggests removing some barriers can promote safer and slower driving.

Where possible, it may be safer to close streets to traffic.

(TFL research:…)
2. #Adaptability

A key quality of Tactical Urbanism - to ensure places can adapt to changing trading conditions and help manage other potential disruptions to high streets

e.g. 2m social distancing - how quickly could infrastructure be reconfigured if guidance changes?

Data surfaced by LinkedIn from 20+ million jobs revealed the 15 most in-demand soft & hard skills. The study looked at the skills that are in highest demand (based on hiring rate) relative to the supply of people who have those skills.
The top 5 most in-demand soft skills are:

#1 #Creativity

Connecting dots—that are seemingly unrelated—to generate original, useful solutions is an incredibly valuable skill in every employee, regardless of what industry or country you’re doing business in.
#2 #Persuasion

Persuasion is convincing others to buy into your idea or a different way of doing things to build consensus or make a decision. It’s one of the most powerful communication skills for all employees to have in their skillset.

Some highlights...

What is Postlab?

@paul_matthijs: Postlab saves you from emailing project files, keeping versions around, and shuttling media.

(Video jumps to 04:13, watch through 04:56)
How do Productions work in Postlab?

• They can store #FCPX Libraries *and* #PremierePro Projects.
• Changes are tracked.
• Libraries and Projects are versioned.
• Think Project Locking, not Bin Locking.

Our second expert-led #COVID19 seminar has kicked off – this one’s on PCR diagnostics. Professor Will Irving has introduced Dr Kate Templeton, who is now talking about how to diagnose in the first seven days: it’s vital testing, results and reporting all happen at the right time.
PCR testing has to happen within ten days of infection. But what's the right sample? In mild cases, the nose gives the greatest yield, followed by the throat. But in hospital cases, just 65% of nose swabs are +ve, while ETT hits 100%.
The PCR test: incredible speed of development. The work began on 20 Jan with PHE Colindale, control dispatched on 5 Feb and live by 10 Feb. Testing ramped up quickly up to 1,000 a day within a week, peaking just under 4,000.

En un post anterior mencionaba que creo que Ecuador debe enfocarse hacia el desarrollo agrícola, y tener como objetivo que en 20 años seamos la más grande potencia agrícola del s. XXI, en función de los ratios de producción y márgenes o ganancia.
Para conseguir un #ECUADORPOTENCIAAGRICOLA debemos hacer cambios sociales, políticos, culturales, empresariales y tecnológicos.
De esto último tratarán éste y los hilos futuros, de cómo usar las nuevas tecnologías para desarrollar el sector agrícola del país.
El objetivo es incentivar a los empresarios, gobierno, inversionistas, hacia la explotación de estos nuevos recursos.
En 2050, se necesitará un 50% más de alimentos en el mundo.

Over the past few weeks of #covid19 confinement - or #shelteringinplace as they say in the US - we have been able to witness (and sometimes support) a number of organizations in their move to #remotework
We believe our experience with implementing #NWoW - #futureofwork in North America - is a helpful lens in seeing both the challenges and changes organizations face when switching to #remotework... some observations:
Organizations that are technologically well-equipped for #remotework before #covid19 were obviously advantaged, but... it was much easier for organizations that were already culturally fit/ready! #orgculture

Range anxiety is a real concern for changing our mindset around #ElectricVehicles.

Just how close to the left of the needle can we go?

Tomorrow I’ve got a few offsite #CSIRO meetings between #Newcastle & #Sydney, so why not come on:
“A day in the life of an #EV

Starting, NOW!
Off on the first leg of the #EV trip, leaving work for the day: I have an 8am meeting so will get a head start.

Leaving the charging point behind & starting with a ~full charge + range of 429 km.

Bring on tomorrow’s #RangeAnxiety experiment!
@TheDriven_io @AEVA_National #CSIRO
First leg of #RangeAnxiety experiment 🧪went as expected:

16 km trip from Office to Home, 15 km reduction in range.

Now to take the dog 🐕 for a bush walk & await the next experimental leg.

Top Ten Reasons Adults without Autism Deserve AMA (Applied Misbehavior Analysis)

1. ABA is a marketing campaign built around controlling behaviors. It stifles freedom of thoughts and removes autonomy, innovation, self-determination, and creativity.
2. AMA seeks to validate each person's individual strengths, accommodate their disabilities, and provide for them a set of circumstances wherein they can thrive to meet their full potential.
3. ABA reinforces behaviors undertaken in the interest of "social consequence." Those social norms go unquestioned and maintain the status quo. The status quo maintains dominant power structures and keeps minority populations marginalized.

"Accomplices Not Allies: Abolishing the Ally Industrial Complex – Indigenous Action Media":… - Remind you of anyone, who gets financial gain from being such an "ally."
“Exploitation & Co-optation”
Those who co-opt are only there to advance self interests (usually it’s either notoriety or financial). As these “allies” seek to impose their agenda, they out themselves.
Certain folks in the struggles (usually movement “personalities”) who don’t upset the ally establishment status quo can be rewarded with inclusion in the ally industry. Ahh we see the beginning of it now. #Metis

“...people usually gain power through traits and actions that advance interests of others such as #empathy, #collaboration, openness, #fairness...when they start to feel powerful or enjoy position of privilege, those qualities begin to fade....(1)
...The powerful are more likely than other people to engage in rude, selfish and unethical behaviour” #RebeccaSolnit citing #DacherKeltner on his work studying relationship between empathy and power
“If power generates a cushion of obliviousness around it, those of us with power need to counter it. That means, first, treating people with respect, regardless of their status: not taking the invitation to disdain or ignore” #Solnit

Steven Soderbergh's The Laundromat, inspired by the #PanamaPapers, is on @netflix this weekend! 🍿

But do you know where all the documents came from? Or what happened to Mossack Fonseca (the firm at the center of the investigation) after we published?
@netflix If you're new to the #PanamaPapers – or just didn't keep up since it was released in 2016 – this quick overview will show you *some* of the change it created. #laundromat
Or go back to where it all began. Our 2016 announcement about the #PanamaPapers – the world's biggest journalism #collaboration. We worked with more than 370 journalists from nearly 80 countries. (That figure has since grown.)

Here's what we found:
