Where do I begin?

Some disclaimers are in order.
1.) I disavow anyone who uses this thread to harass people.
2.) I'm aware that the subject matter I am going to talk about enters "conspiracy territory." I'll walk that fine line and do my best not to wander too far into that.
In fact, I'd like you to vote in this poll simply as an acknowledgement of the above.

It'd make me feel better.
In an earlier thread I simply asked if there was public interest in discussing the role of the banks in regards to the Patreon situation.

The results were significantly overwhelming in favor of that.

I'm operating under the impression that the same applies here. Again.

On the eve of the #2ndAnniversary of the #DeMonetisation that we know was a #DemonetisationDisaster I present a Tweet thread on my analysis of just one of the many claims made for it - that it would boost #cashless #digital transactions. It did not do that. Here's my evidence:
The analysis and paper (Draft 1) is here:
on issuu: issuu.com/home/published…
and
on Scribd: scribd.com/document/39252…
But here in this thread I present the main results. Previous analysts used a simplistic approach of doing a before-after comparison. But this is a spurious method
It leads to the Post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy. See rationalwiki.org/wiki/Post_hoc,…
My analytical approach was simple. I used the figures from RBI and took the monthly data upto Oct 2016 on each idicator and treated it as a regular time series data. (see robjhyndman.com/hyndsight/fpp/)

Key element of #AI is that neural networks are code. It's just written by machines - #Code2point). Still need to be maintained, develop tests, refactoring and organization. #ODSC
Need to set up unit tests for #AI neural networks. How to meet tests, tune dataset, tune model, tune optimization. #ODSCWest

Right, so lots going on and I'm thinking of doing some stuff. But I need your advice and feedback! If you could answer the following polls (comments also welcome) that'd help loads!
I am thinking of writing an old skool email newsletter. Probably monthly. It'd be a mix of what is on here but possibly with a bit more #digital, a bit more #France and other things that are interesting. Would you subscribe? (I've not included 'maybe' - I need binary!)
I will be hosting a live podcast all about #Europe and #Brexit with a heavy #FBPE, #StopBrexit, #PeoplesVote slant. Would you be interested in...

Now up: Zachary Brown, Lead Data Scientist at S&P Global on #DataScience and #OpenEducation for the enterprise. Dayjob: #AI, Sidehustle: building #digital skills using #opensource #ODSCWest @School_GC
#DigitalLiteracy - Why? Effective work today requires a lot of associated learning. @linuxfoundation @github #VersionControl #Visualization -- continuous learning is critical. Optimal tools & processes are probably not the ones you are using now (Matlab vs. Scikit-Learn)
Need an evolving understanding for what tools are available today to get your work done. If you want your business people to work with your #datascience team, they need to understand what data is and what it can do. Also helps to avoid chasing buzzwords and bling.

Takeaways from @Dell financial call today... Dell is taking share across the board...will do $90-$92B in revenue this fy. Setting up for tough compare for next year. Dell citing favorable spending environment, assumptions are 2X GDP for IT spend...
Dell citing attractiveness of 1-stop shopping (end-to-end - edge->core->cloud) I surmise their cloud is VMware with AWS...Since EMC transaction, Dell is posturing as a much more strategic supplier than either Dell or EMC was as an independent company.
new sales comp plans implemented by Dell - @JClarkeatDell fingerprints seen on the enterprise storage biz which he took over about 1 yr ago. Storage was sucking wind post EMC transaction & is now gaining share. I think IDC numbers coming out soon showing Dell EMC gains

Let's start our #GlobalEChats on #music!

Among our #discussion topics: 1. #Stakeholders in music and what happens to them? 2. #Production of music 3. #Consumption of music 4. New #technology out there!
Firstly, let's talk about how scary #technology and #advancement can be to #music.

Some stats:
The US lost $12.5 billion a year in total sales due to pirated music.

71k jobs were lost; $2.7bn in annual earnings; $1.1bn of that would have been earned by the industry.
Source:

sheffieldav.com/education/how-…

But as with any #tech #disruption, there are always negative externalities.

In the #music industry, most of the bad press came from #piracy. Sites like Napster and P2P torrenting were rampant back in the day.

As the new #academic year beckons, I'm preparing new lectures and materials, including on the EU single market. The irony that I, as a British citizen, may not be allowed to work in the EU without a visa post-March isn't lost on me.

#PeoplesVote #StopBrexit #edchat #educhat
Given that the UK will be days away from leaving the @DSMeu when I deliver one of the lectures... on the #digital #singlemarket it's going to call for some agile teaching because I have no doubt the UK government will still be making it up as they go along as they have thus far.
However, whatever the stress caused by this, my thoughts will be with fellow British lecturers, academics & researchers in the EU27 and EU27 lecturers, academics & researchers in the UK who do not know their future.

The closures that @Rachael_Swindon highlights should also been seen in the context of government policy. She is completely right that this is how the Tories are reducing #socialmobility but it is also how they are reducing access to other vital services for the most vulnerable.
It has long been government policy (in common with other countries) that people should access government services online. Other countries recognise that there is a need to keep other options open to protect the most vulnerable. The UK government took a different approach.
The UK government decided to tell people who had difficulty accessing #digital services that they should go to the #library where staff would help them. They then gave no funding for the training of library staff or for their time or for the equipment needed.

#Zuckerberg | You remind me of “Kalden” in the book “The Circle”; the founder of a big data company, growing out of his control, influencing elections.
#Zuckerberg | Nearly every year since 2003 there was a wrongdoing or problem for which you had to apologise; twice in 2017 and three times in 2018 and we are only May! Are you capable to fix it?
#Zuckerberg | You said you will apply the new #GDPR, but are you telling the truth? Since the outbreak of the #CambridgeAnalytica scandal, you transferred European data of non EU citizens to servers outside Europe, which is forbidden.

Interesting call to action from @markthompson1 and colleagues for #legogovernment Who doesn't want better public services with more resources going directly to serving those in need powered by a digital commons (the what)? What we really need though is more on the how! - #thread
1) I'm a big fan of @markthompson1 and his beligerent poking of government to be and do better in the #internet age. His thinking on #platform government #paas #gaap is right on the money. However, some things to consider as part of the debate...hopefully helpful...
2) I'm not sure comparisons between government and the big #tech #innovators of the past 10 years do the #legogovernment argument justice. There are too many differences for the comparison to be helpful. Think lack of democratic accountablity for starters (more now than ever!)...
