It has been a while since I found topics in tech that engendered my curiosity to the point of wanting to writing about them. Namely; privacy, A.I and innovation. To write about these topics is to form robust mental models. I also want to build things.
I decided to start writing about privacy because of one obvious yet curious scenario; the stark contention between liberties that privacy must protect as a natural human right with advances in technology, which are beneficial yet pervasive in threatening those freedoms.
I think most us have a basic idea of this. It's sometimes clear in those brief moments of apprehension when we want to use an app that promises us great user experience. We get into a process of exchanging our information (data) for value.

#Doctors and #Medicine need an #AI update.
Bold and convincing book.

@EricTopol
#ArtificialIntelligence has the ability to bring the fourth industrial revolution. Healthcare is deemed to be an industry which can get transformed the most.

#DeepMedicine
@EricTopol is a #cardiologist, historian of the present and a #MedicalFuturist.
He believes that the way we practice medicine now ( #ShallowMedicine ) relies too heavily on human inputs and is thus plagued by human biases and imperfections.

A few comments is response to "Planet of the Humans". Gibbs (& Zehner) slay many "green energy" myths once & for all – while exposing the foundation "movements" as part & parcel of industry/capital & ruling classes – which they are.
Added caveat: Industrial civ. is destroying all life on Earth. Human destruction of #biodiversity is not created equally: "Tribal peoples are the best conservationists & guardians of the natural world, & 80% of our planet’s #biodiversity is found in #tribal territories."
Link to caveat:

"An analysis of #population growth that accounts for the vast differences in consumption across #class & region is critical in examining the worldwide environmental crisis."

Since pretty much everyone under quarantine has to use digitized primary sources, I thought it might be useful to point to #digitalarchives that *explicitly* acknowledge & caution users abt #archivalsilences in their contents, and describe their work to rectify them.

A thread.
1/ A note: Most people appreciate the easiness of online access to archival material, but tend to forget that all #digitization is selective.
2/ This means that what you see online is usually not “everything” that an institution holds abt a topic. It's important to understand the digitized together w the physical. Even if you can't access physical records now, you'll be able to better contextualize what you see online.

While most people are rightly focusing on short-term measures against #Covid19, including #lockdown and #socialdistancing, I wonder how the medium to long-term political development will be like? In this thread, I want to collect the good, the bad and the ugly of this #pandemic.
How may societies react, and what may happen politically, if #Covid19 runs its course? In other words: How will #pandemicpolitics look like? Short term: I Assume we can halt the further exponential spread within the next 2-4 weeks due to isolation measures, but what comes next?
After 4 weeks or so, we will begin to reestablish normal life, based on what we learned ourselves and observed in other countries. Maybe schools reopen again, as they seem not to be central to the pandemic. More people will want to get outside and need to go to work.

In the past months, we at @GlobalYAcademy have started to improve the visibility of young global scientists. I'll starting sharing more about what I learned through this about #digitization #academies #wikipedia and the visibility of researchers. Here's a picture of NYAs
#gyawiki
NYAs are national young academies. There are around 50 of them, some have a long and prominent history, some have just started *this week*.

Have a look globalyoungacademy.net/national-young…
NYAs are great (*I'm biased, as Executive Member of the GYA... :):
- scientific excellence is understood both in conventional terms, but also in terms of societal impact
- terms are limited. You have 4-5 years to *really* do work
- are typically very diverse! (@WikiWomenInRed)

Is #ROI a fallacy of AEC tech? For example - Can someone point me to a well-researched study with documented data collection and calculation methods and data excerpts that shows return on investment related to #BIM tech adoption in #AEC as an industry?
The top search result on Google is an @autodesk white paper where #ROI of #BIM is framed through a "customer perception study" - so it's valuable if customers think they're getting value? Not a single dollar figure is cited in this paper. Laughable. damassets.autodesk.net/content/dam/au…
More results are case-study driven and not easily extrapolated to indicate a larger #ROI rule or trend (imo) - note in this 2011 example that they frame it as "potential savings". Also note that #BIM and "pre-BIM" are not fully defined or qualified brikbase.org/content/bim-re…

Hello again! We are pleased to be telling the #polyam / #nonmonogamous (hi)story of Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892-1950), the American poet, feminist, and playwright.
Millay is very well-known among #polyam communities today due to a number of articles that @brainpickings wrote about her “polyamorous” love letters: brainpickings.org/2016/02/22/edn…
Along with this beautiful biography of Millay by @Ballad_BobDylan: amazon.com/What-Lips-My-H…
