"You don't see radio changing gradually and suddenly become radar. #Darwin's theory doesn't work for #technology, and we have to make a new observation."

Unlike the two-parent #inheritance typical to (but not ubiquitous among) #complex organisms, #technology inherits features from n parents - a "vast ancestral #network" more like horizontal gene transfer networks in #bacteria.

"Life did not invent #DNA."

Experimental support for the #hotsprings hypothesis for life's origin: David Deamer of @ucsc on nucleic acid polymerization in the wet-dry cycling of Darwin's "warm little pond," powered by #geothermal. Lab results confirmed in #hydrothermal pools.
From "boring statistical partitioning" in the fission of early protocells to the complex #homeostasis-driven #mitosis of the cells we know - Doron Lancet of @WeizmannInstSci on the gradient between closure of #autocatalysis #networks to complex regulatory mechanisms of #biology.
"Life is an integrated nested network of dynamic #kinetic cycles."

(1/10) The #payment #networks really are incredible businesses. Consider this: @Visa is used at nearly 55M merchant locations, has issued 3B+ cards and processes $11T worth of payments each year. It's current market cap is $355B.
(2/10) In fact, if we look at the stock performance of the 3 biggest payment networks in the US (@Mastercard, @Visa & @PayPal ) over the last 3 years vs FAANG or the S&P 500, they are absolutely crushing it:

+ FAANG: +127%
+ S&P 500: +38%

Attending a really exciting @BritishAcademy workshop, 'Linking Data in Prosopography: Late Antique, Byzantine and Early Modern Studies', with no formal presentations and discussions collaboratively recorded on a Google doc! #Networks #Prosopography #Twitterstorians @ERC_CONNEC
Beginning with Charlotte Rouche raising issues of categorisation of data models, definitions of prosopography, and reconciling data collection with scepticism - do you include Zeus/Jesus in your database? #LinkedData
As a user you need to know what you're not going to find in a prosopographical database; how do you define the boundaries, who do you include and exclude, on what basis? Discussing Clergy of the Church of England Database: theclergydatabase.org.uk

It's a full house here despite the weather, but no one will be turned away at 30 John St/@MadeinNY for @aajanewyork panel talking #journalism, #layoffs, #freelancing, and more!
When laid off, it's ok to take your time to get your bearings, rejuvenate, focus on you. Also ok to keep sending out resumes and networking if that helps you process & grieve. #aaja #journalism #layoffs #freelancing
