Book proposals: What’s involved? How do you write them? Here are 14 tips from editors Emily Andrew of @McGillQueensUP, Randy Schmidt of @UBCPress and Dan Quinlan of @utpress. They’ll have more to say at a panel at #congressh in Toronto. A thread… 🧵 Image
1. Before you submit a book proposal, meet with an acquisition editor to form a relationship. This way when the proposal arrives it will have a face and a conversation attached. 🤝(@eandreweditor) #bookproposal
2. There is no protocol to contacting an acquisitions editor. Reach out to them by name. Our contact information is online, we will know many of your colleagues and peers, and we are approachable. Leverage mutual contacts and relationships. (Dan Quinlan, @utpress) 📧📞#Editors

I have had boating accidents, paramilitary engagements, conversations with royals and billionaires most everyone from street thug to famous king pin.
Vitalik Buterin went from street urchin to co founder of Ethereum after following me to India. God protects me through good people
FWIW I don't think @VitalikButerin is a good person, nor can I understand how he sleeps at night. Ethereum sounds like a snoop of my network interface while I plugged into ETH Zurich after knocking on some doors after some early cryptography #meetup (circa 2001)
FFS it sounds like something Aaron Swartz (co founder of Reddit) knew got him killed. He knew me. I was in Queenstown, New Zealand at the time. It was significantly more difficult to spy before/without submarines, and now there is star link.

After taking a Twitter sabbatical (things have been busy), I thought I would take a note from @jurijuri and discuss my insights into #meetups...since I run @WhoMeetup. A thread. /1
Meetups, at their heart, are socially-oriented.

There's no rule that says you *have* to show a video, or *have* to do anything.

Too many people act like "meetups don't matter"...and they do.

#Meetups can provide a low barrier of entry to fandom /2
At its heart, @WhoMeetup doesn't "compete" with Gally or Chicago TARDIS...

we take our cue from groups like @chicagonerds, @RaksGeek, and @DownInFrontLive and focus on *community* rather than "commodity".

And we've done a lot since I took over @WhoMeetup in 04/2012. /3

#JSM2021 panel led by @minebocek on upskilling for a statistician -- how to learn??
@minebocek #JSM2021 @hglanz no shortage of stuff to learn. First identify what you don't know -- that comes from modern media (blogs, twitter, podcasts; groups, communities -- @RLadiesGlobal or local chapters; professional organizations -- @amstatnews ).
@minebocek @hglanz @RLadiesGlobal @AmstatNews #JSM2021 @hglanz What do the job postings require these days? (This is how the content for the @CalPoly stat/data science program was developed.)

My hair's getting long, but not long enough to tie into a ponytail, which is my intention in this time when we avoid barbers. You can see how long my hair has become in the selfie I posted today. In it I sit at my desk...
...working on my laptop, my immense desk towering over me and clutter filling the space that is not filled by electronics. I chose black and white for this composition as I do for all my best selfies. It's unique because...
...I show myself from the back, a trick I mastered by resorting to the ten second timer in one of my cameras. I don't know how I feel about this photo -- perhaps you have something to say. I'd be very interested.
