There are relatively few American’s who died after turning 100 buried @ArlingtonNatl, even fewer who are female, & only a mere fraction of those who served as intel officers

Captain Stephanie Czech Rader was a woman ahead of her time

“[The #OSS] gave me a gun, but I never carried a gun. I thought, ‘What the heck was I gonna do with a dumb gun?'” Stephanie’s most valuable weapon: her wits.

It wasn’t until decades later that the details of her amazing story were declassified.

#WomensHistoryMonth
Stephanie, the daughter of Polish immigrants, grew up immersed in Polish language & culture in an immigrant neighborhood in Poughkeepsie.

She was the 1st person in her family to graduate college, & she eventually earned a master’s degree – in chemistry.

I'm going to tweet a while about something @jessewilson threw my way about @mozilla #oss archetypes blog.mozilla.org/wp-content/upl…
the section "Benefits of Open Source" is amazingly complete. It emphasises that while each benefit is not mutually exclusive to another, they also don't imply others as well. Ex: leading a standard comes with benefits, though that doesn't imply engagement or quality goals
quick racking of brain for benefits or goals not listed.. one was "obviate platform shift costs" from netflix, which is similar to others listed except iirc the idea was obviating platform shift costs by being the platform you'd shift to

✨🧠 The ecosystem that has grown up around @TensorFlow in the last few years blows my mind. There's just so much functionality, compared to some of the other, newer frameworks.

👉Consider this an ever-expanding thread for me to take notes + wrap my brain around products. Ready?
1) @TensorFlow Extended (TFX)

It's no secret that I 💕 #TFX and all of its tooling for deploying machine learning models into production. If you care about keeping your models up-to-date and monitoring them, you should check out the product + its paper.

2) @TensorFlow Hub

If you want to train your model on a small data set, or improve generalization, you'll need to use something called transfer learning. #TFHub modules make it easy—and are available in an #OSS marketplace: tfhub.dev.

Excellent advice from @fchollet

Missing: Disclaimer: The [job] market can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent. The Thomas theorem may apply.

Nikola Tesla, Walter Pitts, Vincent van Gogh, Alan Turing, Socrates, HP Lovecraft,…

You may not be that clever.
I'm not that clever, and yet, my thoughts revolve around quitting my job more and more. I'm willing to accept austerity, poverty, and misery. But not homelessness. I'm compromising, in an explicit and clear way. Do you compromise consciously?

Life is short. You are what you do, not what anybody says or thinks. What do you want to be before you no longer are? How much of your life do you need to compromise to afford that? There are no guarantees of time left, try to cut some corners.
