🚀 We are live! Here is the correct streaming link for all of today's discussions and performances, starting with a panel on complex time with David Krakauer, James Gleick, Ted Chiang, and David Wolpert in a few moments (measured linearly...):

"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

1) "“How can you think yourself a great man, when the first accident that comes along can wipe you out completely.”
or as @FeeriLee would say "How can you consider yourself the great S**t if you put all of your eggs in one basket."
2) Optimization is the favorite word for many people, governments or corporation, looking that input and output are "well" used, while everything extra is a "waste" or what is better called redundancy..which end up beign way better for the unkonws (as @paulportesi would stated).
3) This happens everywhere, beign even pathological, specially when not all risk are created equal, some will look at easy to spot risks, but the most terrible and common in our modern times, are the silent ones.

The consequences of the #covidcrisis are the macroeconomic topic of the day. Many observers & researchers compare the situation to the global financial crisis of 2008. A key difference is the large rise of household debt & asset prices that pre-dated the financial crisis. 1/17
In a new paper w/ Alina Bartscher, @MSchularick & Ulrike Steins, we explore the drivers behind the built-up of household debt in the U.S. before the financial crisis. We exploit newly available long-run microdata on the financial situation of households from 1949 to 2016. 2/17

Tbh your “analysis” of both Joe & Hillary’s messaging is pretty reminiscent of mansplaining from a cis/het White guy who isn’t reflective of the Democratic base aka marginalized Americans who understand that racism/misogyny/homophobia/greed are America’s moral stains/sins. 😒😷
As if we don’t already know the oppressor doesn’t like messaging that reads oppression for filth...

2/7 "Fragility is quite measureable, risk not so at all, particularly risk associated with rare events." - NN Taleb #Risk #Fragility #Systems Image
3/7 "Complex systems that have artificially suppressed volatility tend to become extremely fragile, while at the same time exhibiting no visible risks. In fact, they tend to be too calm & exhibit minimal variability as silent risks accumulate beneath the surface." - Taleb/Blythe Image
