1/x Prior to #DevconVI, at #RollupDay, @VitalikButerin talked about β€œHardening rollups with multi-proofs”. Here is a thread of brief summary.
2/x Nowadays, almost all #rollup protocols are still on β€œtraining wheels”, as proofs are either in development or can be easily overridden by simple governance.
3/x Even if we have proof systems ready say validity proof for zk-rollups, due to the complexity of the generated proofs, it’s quite tough to ensure there’s no bug in the proof. One example below, for a simple code snippet in #PSE zk-EVM impl, it has 34,469 lines of circuit code.

As promised last week, I’ve got a new thread 🧡 for you: sessionals, the academy, and job action. Strap in, cause I’ve got a LOT of feelings about this one. #ulfastrike #PSE #worthfightingfor /1
Let’s begin with a primer: what is a sessional? Well, me, I’m a sessional right now at ULeth. I was hired for a single term to replace someone who had to take sick leave, which is one of the reasons why I’m participating in this strike from NB. /2
But at the moment, I’m not really representative of sessionals at ULeth or in Canada. Sessionals are academics with the same credentials as full-time tenured faculty (PhD, publications, etc) who have been hired for a short-term contract to teach a course at a PSE institution. /3

Making money in #PSE is hard. When I realized that many of us are in this situation, I asked my friends to share ideas for Quarter 1 so that we will have something to begin with. Their ideas are varied because their trading strategies are different.

Find the one you relate to.
DMT @DMTagora teaches THE Vantage class and manages fund. If I won't have time to trade, he will be the only person I will go to.

His first buy will always be at the support. No to break out trade unless his existing shares has a low aep.

If unsure, he will sell. ImageImage

The UCP are choosing to gut Alberta's post-secondary institutions {'cept the religious 1s} #UofA is being targeted disproportionately {could it be b/c #yeg voted NDP?πŸ€”}.
It's students at Alberta's biggest university (1 of the best in the world) who'll suffer. See how: #PSE
What can students do about the #UCP attack on Alberta's universities?
Yes, budget sit'n is dire. But budget choices are being made based on: 1]ideologies of small gov't via downloaded (not lower) costs, 2]failed austerity models, 3]pork-barrel politics #PSE

The #UCP attack on Alberta's post-secondary institutions is based on contested data & politicised interpretations. It will hurt #students, unnecessarily:

At the Canadian Consortium for Research meeting today w/ @MitacsCanada #CSPF and @NSERC_CRSNG colleagues, where @VB_Lisa opens by discussing #SupportTheReport efforts, asking how can we foster next steps for fundamental research and the #NextGenCanSci in Canada?

#scipol #thread
James Compton, prev prez @CAUT_ACPPU shows that there was a massive increase in student population, but this has slowed over the last 3 years. It would have slowed more, were it not for international students. Yet, #PSE funding from fed has been flat, has decreased at prov level
... Tuition has also increased over time. Faculty wages are not the culprit though, the % #PSE expenditures on wages has diminished over time. There is also more reliance on contract staff ➑️ and academic staff are not being renewed

After a quick photo op with the @DSP_SPE #scipol #NextGenCanSci #dreamteam, I'm attending the #CSPC2018 panel @sciencepolicy on the social implications of emerging technologies w/ @ideas_idees @SocMedDr @emmeslin @Scienceadvice
Discussion questions for 2-way Q&A at the emerging technologies panel #cspc2018 ⬇️
Directions: There are some questions that are easy to answer, others that are more important that are harder to answer (@emmeslin). The social implications of new tech, esp if algorithms can exponentially increase biases and misinformation, are the latter (@SocMedDr) #CSPC2018
