#WAGMI Metaverse

I attended a session on "Fundamentals of Metaverse" by @5aelo hosted by @0xTPH | @adityamohanty_ | @abhayjani4

It was an amazing and valuable session
Sharing my learnings in this thread

😍What is Metaverse ?
It is a place where we can live, shop, work, interact and have fun from anywhere at anytime

It is a piece if space and time where you can do all things you want in an interconnected manner in a 3d space in the internet.

The current issue of @Nature has three articles that show how to make those error-correcting mechanisms achieve over 99% accuracy, which would make silicon-based qubits a viable option for the large-scale quantum computational devices.

Don't overspecialize.
It will make you overdependent on other people.
Always be a #generalist.
The problem with doing a #PhD degree is that it makes you highly specialized in a minuscule area of academic interest.
Utter rubbish!
Sheer waste of time, financial resources and cognitive capabilities.
Many people who are struggling to find decent work after Postgraduate Qualification, such as MSc/MA/MBA, end up enrolling on a #PhD Degree program.
How bloody melancholic that is!?
Seen many such cases in Life and Hard Sciences.

Passion project time! I love the HP-45 #calculator. It's beautiful on the outside, but I wanted to show people that it's beautiful on the inside, too. So, as a #coding & #retrocomputing challenge I wrote a simulator, & I'm now making it available to all. (Retweets welcomed.) 1/7 Image
The simulator was designed for the Z80-MBC2, a computer designed by @Just4Fun_J4Fun with a #Z80 processor running CP/M. (If you like #retrocomputing, do try it.) But after some tedious wrangling, I was able to write code which also compiled for Windows, Linux & MacOS. 2/7 Image
I like the sense of retro-tech and (unfulfilled) futures which the terminal application provides: it's a #hauntological calculator. It's also flexible: you can change what's shown on the display &, for slower machines (say, an 8MHz Z80), you can run in minimal mode for speed. 3/7 Image

The fact that one is able to buy/sell #cryptocurrency is because someone mined it in the first place. This is what proof-of-work(#PoW) basically is. There would not be any proof-of-stake or proof-of-authority cryptocurrency models, had PoW not conceptualized in the first place.👇
Banning #mining means banning proof-of-work, which is the fundamental pillar behind generating all #cryptocurrencies. Many gamers in India use their computers to earn some pocket money through mining as well as #NFTgaming. For many, it is how they feed themselves.

December 1st and today starts my traditional Women in STEM advent calendar. Some I have tweeted about before, some are new. Time to open door no 1.

#WomenInSTEM #STEMcalendar #AdventCalendar #STEMedu #STEAM #TechEdu #DandT #DT
Door 1 - Hertha Ayrton. British engineer, mathematician, physicist, inventor. Known for her work with the electric arc + discovery with waves and ripple.

1899, she was the first woman ever to read her own paper before the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE).
#WomenInSTEM Image
Door 2 - Katharine Burr Blodgett. Physicist and chemist. Invented the nonreflective glas. Which improved everything from eyeglasses to the camera on your phone. She was the first woman to receive a PhD in physics from the @Cambridge_Uni

On #InternationalWomensDay we'd like to pause and celebrate just a small slice of the enormous contributions to science women have made here at SFI.

Read the thread below for links to some of their own favorite research papers, and a few nominated by other SFI faculty members:
First off, these papers on #FoodWebs led by our VP for #Science, Jennifer Dunne:

[@royalsociety Proceedings B]

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.

My #health is up & down, and I'm used to it.
I get around, or I lay down (laying down while typing right now)
&now that my forearm is burnin, I'll be doing this a little less as previously stated.

fine enough, but lets talk bout-
-internalized disabili-phobia. (gimmee a break,& gimmee the word if it exists)

it kinda works like internalized homophobia really. I pulled inside all of the shit I've heard for years. all of the hate, all of the "there's no place for you, so go and die already". all inside-

With all the AI-buzz going on both in threads here and out there in the real world, something struck me.

Contemplate this.

And not the other way around.

Because the obvious implification, is that we have emerged from and still exists in a causal sea of conscious energy and potential.
