Thread: For a good couple of years now, I have heard @makemytrip stories through #youtube videos, have admired the progress, and got inspired. Today had a privilege to listen to #MakeMyTrip Founder @DeepKalra at @headspin_io #Automation #Hackathon wrap. (1/N)
Trying to list down a few things which I could capture from all the wisdom which was flowing and ones which I will probably remember for a long time.

1. People (#customer) have to come back for a reason. Make sure to give them that. (2/N)
2. Sales were saying go back to the #Corporate job but the heart was saying "Too Early to Give up".

3. Customer Retention is the most important thing.

4. On #UX: I (Customer) am going to give you 5 minutes of my life to you. You have that much time to grab the eyeballs. (3/N)

Much debate on #SciComm. Little formal guidance exists. Those on academic committees that oversee ethics & professionalism are unfamiliar with social media. And now we are in a crisis and #pandemic of many levels. #publichealth very different from industry (1st vs rest).
In #publichealth one, the 1st points are be first & be right

There is an inherent tension between these two

With disrupted public health coordination, like cutting off from WHO, changing guidance from CDC (masks only for clinicians, no everyone wear them) how to be accurate?
In comparison, industry guidance #SoMe guidance. Industry has a lot more experience with this and uses it for marketing, market share, customer outreach, customer brand recognition, brand management. The focus is prestige, optics, reputation - there are monetizable traits.

Umbereen S Nehal MD MPH: who is this person? Several people have been asking

A thread

Where am I from? Hooboy.
Let’s say, citizen of the world, human ping pong ball. Third culture kid. Genetic mutt

Born: 🇺🇸
🇵🇰 parents - when my parents born colonial rule, pre-Pakistan
To thoroughly annoy my Twitter bestie, @DrvanTilburg

Am an ENFP - a cross between Snoopy, Robin Willians, Ellen Degeneres, Dr. Seuss, Charles Dickens, Upton Sinclair

I border on ENTP - love new info and love to challenge in order to break through barriers or limitations
My great-grandfather was given title "Khan Bahadur" (brave). As a judge, a brown man under Colonial rule, he threw the book at a British attorney. "Learn the law" if in his courtroom. Hence my stiff moral backbone

My mom & me:

By its very nature, @Europeanaeu supports #eResearch by offering a wealth of resources coming from 3,700+ data providers. In the past few years, these resources have been increasingly complemented by sophisticated #tools for their reuse and enrichment. 1/15 #DHgoesVIRAL
As you may have heard, @Europeanaeu grows, in terms of new collections and tools, mainly thanks to @EU_Commission's funding for @DSMeu. You can get a clearer idea from the ongoing call for proposals under #CEF Telecom Programme: bit.ly/340X0u2

October @stratisplatform node map is surprising and possibly a bit 👻.

TLDR:
1) 2,586 nodes 🔥🔥 🔥
2) #Brazil 🇧🇷 is highest growth - 1025%!
3) #China 🇨🇳 say “Hi!” with one #Csharp node.
4) New countries - 🇭🇺 🇮🇷 🇱🇦 🇨🇳 🇹🇼
Germany 🇩🇪 continue to dominate Europe in this #DigitalTransformation. Hungary is new. While smaller countries like Portugal, Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia, Ireland, Malta, and Spain continues their explosive growth! Please join $stratis #hackathon @devpost @EUBlockchain
Middle East has a slight uptick. Bahrain 🇧🇭, Turkey 🇹🇷, and Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦 maintain their lead and continue their growth. Iran is new. I suspect we will hear some news from #Bahrain and #Turkey in 2020. Please join $stratis #hackathon @devpost

0/ 'Twas very much 'M&A Mondays' in the #crypto/#blockchain space, with not one, not two, but *three* announcements revealing the coming together of two previously discrete projects.

A heap of other developments took place on Monday, too, so let's get into it, shall we?
1/ 🐱 @Efolioapp - a P2P marketplace to buy and sell #crypto tokens - unveiled its solution that brings English auctions (as distinct from Dutch auctions) to @0xProject [ $ZRX ]!

Bid for NFTs with either an #ERC20- and #ERC721-compliant token. Neat! medium.com/@emoonmarket/0…
2/ 📣 Per @Cheddar, Facebook hired most of the @Chainspace_io team; its first major 'acqui-hire’ in the #crypto space.

Who is Chainspace? A #blockchain startup self-described as "a planetary scale smart contracts platform." cheddar.com/videos/faceboo…

How the accounting industry is LITERALLY KILLING YOU.
#accounting #cpa #cloudaccounting #qbconnect #snh

A thread.
Yeah I know, you got some new apps and your practice is all stream-lined and your clients are happy, cool cool cool.

But as a whole, accounting is a industry that does not take their health seriously.

And statistically, that means you don't either.
Let's change that.

Here's a short list of 7 problems & solutions which will lead to better work and better health.

There's been a lot of talk about #electionsecurity since we know #Russia will try to hack the #2018Midterms.

This thread will give brief overviews of #votingmachines, #opensource software & #handmarked #paperballots. THREAD 1/10 #MondayMotivaton
Jurisdictions don't have 💰 or staff to buy new machines frequently or keep the ones they have up to date with security updates. There's no voting machine that can't be hacked. 2/10 nytimes.com/2018/02/21/mag…
Manufacturers & election officials say since the machines aren't connected to the internet, they can't be hacked. But that's not accurate. Polling places transmit voting results using modems. 3/10 #technology #hack #telecommunications
