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.”

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

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)

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)

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/
