Am going to take my time to carefully consider my prediction for the final now I'm on a roll, since I have been asked... #humblebrag
Having previously said Italy would be 'favoured' in a final against England I have to decide whether to stick with this, their victory over Spain somewhat less comfortable than it might have been.
To get to a major final you really have to be good at not losing, and England and Italy are the two teams who deserve to be in the final. On that basis you can't expect anything other than a tough, pretty even game.

Many of my podcast guests tell me I ask really excellent questions. #humblebrag Maybe it's just like courtesy small talk but it happens often enough I'll try to believe it.
I've always been a question asker. As a third culture kid, I often asked questions that are not appropriate because I had to navigate multiple cultures. Many out-of-context questions.

Of course, I also asked too many questions of my religious establishment. 🙄
The kinds of questions I ask on my podcast is for the most part completely inappropriate in everyday living.

The most basic one: Tell me your story.

Most people are simply not trained or ready to answer that Q off the cuff.

1/ today $TWLO has a market cap of ~$49B and announced they're acquiring Segment for ~$3B.
while it's easy to #humblebrag "i was fortunate to be a seed-stage investor 12 yrs ago" (see i just did it) and make a splash on @VCbrags, i have another story to tell.
2/ about 8 yrs ago i invested in a small #SaaS startup from Australia that was just a few people and had raised <$500K, was doing maybe $10-25K in monthly ARR (sorry if i'm forgetting exact #s but it was pretty early)
3/ we invested $100K from 500 Startups and they were part of one of our early accelerator batches, i think #5 around summer or fall 2012. they were smart, and had a functional product with a clear use case and customers.

Indeed, just made a similar point on Radio 4 (#humblebrag), trade deals may not be significant to the economy as a whole, but for individual products they can be the difference between domestic production disappearing, stable, or growing strongly.
Usually food - check out banana wars, chicken tax, citrus black spot, feta cheese just for starters. Textiles can be quite sensitive - bra wars. Then the obscure, broom makers in NAFTA. Or even a story today about a milk product... politico.eu/interactive/th…
And then ask, so what should UK priorities be in trade deals? Is it food and drink products, if so which ones (Scotch? Cheese?). Is it cars, or ceramics, or should we focus on services? All have supporters, lobbying intensively. But we don't know which will win. And lose.

1/ @TransferWise Q1 Mission update:

How our team’s been making money work better internationally
⚡️faster,
💸cheaper,
📲 more convenient

All the way from our 1̶6̶ 2000+ “offices” around the world.

PS! We’re very much hiring!
2/ This is not about the pandemic. Yet it shows us that nothing’s more important than our health. Money included.

But money shouldn’t be another thing to worry about. Right now we need it to be exactly where it’s needed, when it’s needed.

3/ Here’s Q1 in full 👇

⚡️25% of transfers now get to their destination in less than 20 seconds (up +1.5% from last Q).

This was mainly due to the roll out of instant payments to Mexico for all transfers up to $1000USD; and significant improvements across Asian countries.

@JohnBoelts @manan73 @channah_rock @RobertWager1 @UArizonaCALS There were a number of factors in why irradiation of leafy greens as a food safety treatment looked promising then stalled out.

But first: it’s safe, effective, flexible, and thoroughly studied.

So why is it still so niche?
fda.gov/food/buy-store…
@JohnBoelts @manan73 @channah_rock @RobertWager1 @UArizonaCALS The big spinach outbreak/recall of 2006 was tragic for the victims, and was insanely expensive and sector-damaging for spinach and had a giant spillover impact on all leafy greens, bagged and whole head.
@JohnBoelts @manan73 @channah_rock @RobertWager1 @UArizonaCALS But while the spinach outbreak/recall was huge, there were multiple lettuce outbreaks/recalls about every year. Looking at 19 big lettuce recalls and one gigantic spinach recall, pressure for action was high.

Public, industry, regulators all needed something done.

#Humblebrag alert: Harvard's Shorenstein Center has just published a very long and detailed case study on how great @motherjones is: shorensteincenter.org/mother-jones-c…
@MotherJones As the case study makes clear with many charts and graphs and an in-depth timeline about all things @MotherJones, our success is due to the relationship with, and support from, our readers: shorensteincenter.org/mother-jones-c…
@MotherJones If you care about non-profit media, or really just media, there are lessons learned (and pitfalls that still remain) in how we have steadily grown as others have boomed and busted. We bet on readers, not advertisers or VR or pivoting to video or... shorensteincenter.org/mother-jones-c…

I vaguely remember that one of these two betrays me but I can’t remember if it’s Kendra or Hammond. #DeadSpace
Probably just my terrible aim making it hard to hit them, but I thought for a second that one of the neceomorphs was wearing armour on their legs. #DeadSpace
This looks alright for an eleven year old game... Wait eleven years old..? O_o #DeadSpace

I find it elitist when people insult followers with a low follow count. I also try to reply to people. But I’ll make an exception for something clogging my mentions today. I don’t get why people reply to trolls who created their account 2 months ago and have <100 followers.
TROLL: “Starz doing DMCA takedowns of news stories about torrent networks is within copyright law allowances!”

ACTUAL COPYRIGHT EXPERTS: “Um, not even close. Even if it was a hyperlink it is fine.”

TROLL:
I honestly do try to reply to everything I see. “I see” is doing a lot more work here since my follower count shot up in January. I’m on here to interact and Twitter has gotten harder for me to use in that regard.

Let’s do it.
Goals of workshop:
1) What is the current state of the field - what do we already know?
2) What are the funded near-future plans? What might we know soon?
3) What are the potential future advances that could be important?
4) How can NASA help?
Intro by @Astro_Wright - what are technosignatures?

(Autocorrect has no idea what to do with the word ‘technosignatures’ if you get even a single letter wrong.)

OK, if you're following #nebrasummit , I'm wrote up some stuff* re the @RasputitsaRide section from earlier
*stuff being long rambling Kramer fashion Tweeting, because promoting doesn't have to be complicated but a complete understanding helps
First: Go read this:

Wrote up what seems like a random topic because a separate example can be helpful in getting people to see the forest through the trees
this should be an appropriate enough background to talk about why Rasputitsa was such a weird foreign body at #nebrasummit today. I'm sure y'all have your own perspectives on how to talk about Customer Empathy BUT ATTEND AND WRITE YOUR OWN TWEETS NEXT TIME

Amid all the lovely #humblebrag posts in our timelines, think of the #LawStudents trying to decode the language used by referees in legal directories, to find out about firms/chambers and their lawyers... [1/n]
'wealth of experience' = [equity partner nearing retirement]

'massively improved its positioning' = [hired a marketing Svengali with directory contacts]

'Rising star' = [desperate for partnership, and will use this as ammunition]
'Friendly' = [unworried by a firm's time-recording system]

'Pro-active' = [charges for work in solving problems which haven't yet arisen]

'Engages in ADR' = [a convert to mediation after a swingeing adverse costs order and a client complaint]

February 2014

instagram.com/p/kDl7aLN0vx/

The idea of “Attaboy” was for makers to share what they are working on and keeping each other motivated throughout the development process.

It was email-based and never got any attraction.

Seems familiar though, right? 🤔🚧
Later that month (2014)

instagram.com/p/kvoFSdN0kN/

A mock-up for a mobile app. I figured maybe email wasn’t the right medium. I never built the app though. Didn’t have the coding skills nor market validation.
February 2015 (a year later)

instagram.com/p/y-oPsKN0ou/

You can’t tell from the cryptic copy in the design mock-up, but this was an iteration of the same idea.

I got it fully built, but it proved to be over-engineered and I never felt it was good enough to launch. 🤷‍♂️

1/ #NixHearing opens tense as he attempts to make a statement while @DamianCollins asserts Q&A format. Soon asked how he felt about Channel4 undercover films. He blamed representation on editing of “hypotheticals” but @JoStevensLabour reads CA statement when he was suspended.
2/ @JoStevensLabour asking about the ethics of the CA/SCL reads brochure text of their ability to manipulate SEO on political opponents. @DamianCollins asks about Ukrainian girls: “that works very well” Nix: “that was a lie to impress the client.” #NixHearing
3/ @DamianCollins asks about brochure for Mongolian candidates that offered infiltration and sting services. @pow_rebecca asks about SCL offering the “dark arts” and Nix does the whataboutism on Channel4 equating journalistic practice as falsely equivalent. #NixHearing

There are two things that have helped me build my freelance business and nearly triple the salary I had in my in-house role less than one year ago: relationships and positioning. 1/
Relationships aren't an immediate gain either. I've never gone into meeting someone expecting that they would turn around and do something for me. That's called a transaction, not a relationship.
Real relationships are built from a place of "how can I help *you*?" or "this person is interesting to me". Going into new relationships with people under these two circumstances has yielded incredible results. 3/
