Can computational methods assess the #sentiment of complex texts? In an article with my fabulous colleagues from the @WZB_Berlin, @unipotsdam @LMU_Muenchen @JungeAkademie, we answer this question by applying #dictionary and #scaling methods on a sample of #literature reviews🧵
The article is also a practical #guide to help researchers select an appropriate #method and degree of preprocessing for their own data. Our #corpus consisted of 6.041 summaries of reviews of contemporary German #literature acquired from @perlentaucher00 (2/9)
The linguistic #complexity of #literature reviews differ from other texts with regard to their #language-- ambiguity, irony, metaphors, etc.-- are comparatively difficult to capture with #computational approaches. So how did our different methods fare? (3/9)

1/n 🧵 ICYMI "Scaling of Hunter-Gatherer Camp Size and Human Sociality"

New paper (@UChicagoPress) led by José Lobo (@ASU) & co-authored by a team incl. SFI's @BettencourtLuis (@miurbanchicago) & Scott Ortman (@CUBoulder), result of an SFI working group:
journals.uchicago.edu/doi/10.1086/71… Image
2/n
This new research deploys #ScalingLaw insights to understand the population-density driven transition from temporary hunter-gatherer settlements to permanent sedentary city life.

Image
3/n
Previous research on the impact of densification on the transition into city life has yielded conflicting results, some suggesting that hunter-gatherer groups actually thin out as they scale. (In what ways might this reflect transitions in the scaling of microbial organisms?) Image

🧵 THREAD N°25 : les rollups

Après le thread tranquille d'hier, retour aux sujets techniques avec le thread du jour sur les #rollups, une méthode qui permet d'accélérer les échanges sur une blockchain 👇
1/ Avant de lire ce thread, je vous recommande de lire celui-ci sur les solutions de #scaling pour bien comprendre les enjeux des rollups.
2/ En quelques mots, les #rollups sont une solution qui permet d'effectuer 10, 100, 1000 transactions en une seule transaction, multipliant de fait par 10, 100, 1000 la vitesse du réseau.

1/ @avalancheavax is a highly customizable #Layer0 that enables the development of an infinite number of #blockchains on top.

It can support the adoption of #EVM for any custom VM that implements the innovative #AVAX consensus. Image
2/ The #AVAX #protocol has the only #consensus capable of #scaling the active validator list while maintaining high transaction performance, sub-second finality, and unmatched #decentralization.

It is composed of four mechanisms: Slush, Snowflake ❄️, Snowball, and Avalanche
3/ #Avalanche #Consensus uses “repeated random subsampling” to vote: when a validator #node receives a transaction, it randomly queries other validators until the network achieves consensus.

X-Chain, C-Chain, and Platform Chain are 3 #blockchains making the Primary Network Image

Tragic! Astoria oregon debates not so affordable "workforce" housing

As shelter is closed!
Why is the heritage square project skewed for people making more than 45k a year?

#mortgage #debt to cover the cost based on higher rents
Why do rich kids in astoria think 45k income as 60% average mean is "low income"

We're considering licensing our @nextjs @sanity_io @tailwindcss @typescript engine to other businesses.

Web devs and agencies, would you ever consider using a licensed website engine?

Not too dissimilar to what @divjoy does!

Start projects with the hard stuff done already.
The engine has a cli to quickly build pages, modules, dialogs etc.

We scaffold the whole process from frontend module to Sanity data model and storybook demo.

Our pages are all modular so adding a new module to the library makes it available across the CMS for all pages.
Pages are linked up and routed, they are infinitely nestable and a sitemap is auto generated as you go.

Pages are rebuilt by next without any manual deployments.

All pages have live preview by default.

Buttons are setup to internally link to any pages by name, so no 404s.

How the #DigitalDevelopment community thinks about sharing #information, #resources, and #data and partners to advance #DigitalTransformation will be key to creating #impact from our efforts and ensuring country #governments can replicate them to better serve their #citizens.
DIAL thinks about #partnerships in everything it does—in fact, were founded in 2015 by a partnership of #global #donors seeking to connect incredibly promising #DigitalDevelopment efforts that had failed to achieve #scale.

You're struggling to scale your e-commerce #operations to a new level? Here are 5 easy ways on how to #scale horizontally👇🏻

THREAD 🧵 (1/6)
1️⃣ Foreign markets.

Chances are, that you're running your operations mainly in the United States of America. Think outside of the box. The world is big enough for you to scale in #untappedmarkets such as DACH, NORDIC, BENELUX, etc.

(2/6)
2️⃣ Foreign languages.

Not only should you consider #scaling in untapped markets as previously mentioned but you should also adapt to the local language. Tested this several times and it will significantly boost your #CVR and just overall performance-driven #KPIs.

This week at SFI: "#Complexity and the Structure of #Music: Universal Features and Evolutionary Perspectives Across Cultures", an #interdisciplinary working group assembled to explore new frameworks for understanding music. Stay tuned for highlights!

santafe.edu/events/complex…
"Every pitch class set is connected to every other pitch class set."

– @mbnUNT, co-organizer of this week's #musicology working group, presents on how to understand the #topology of #harmonic structures in music with #network diagrams (e.g. Pic 4 with #JSBach's BWV 66):
Once you represent a musical composition as a network, it is possible to examine the evolutionary dynamics of its harmonic content over time, as explained by @mbnUNT in his opening talk for this week's SFI #musicology working group.

(Ironically, this #Beethoven is #scalefree:)

Always a delight to speak with ⁦@xenditco⁩ ‘s Moses and Tessa #scaling #TIAconference #SEA #tech Image
@xenditco 1/ When do you start scaling? When you have Product Market Fit. What does PM Fit "feel" like? Imagine someone took 2 fingers, stuck them in your nostrils, and yanked hard, upwards. That's demand pull! HT @zealoustiger for this pic
2/ On the topic of scaling, we discussed life pre-scaling (optimize your company activities around experimentation pace) and post-scaling (optimize your company around the ability to grow).

"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."

Addy Pross emphasizes the importance of motion to the persistent forms of self-organizing #complexsystems at SFI today

Remember how the Software Industry mis-read one paper and got stuck with an "implementation described above [that] is risky and invites failure."
Yup, that was #Waterfall. We might have seen some sense with #agile and now we risk to undermine this again with #scaling nonsense
Turns out plenty has already been written on the pitfalls of scaling (yup, already in the 70's, 80's, 90's....) and there are some great books and papers that lay it out explicitly and bluntly. Some of these papers supposedly know by the industry.
If there is one paper you should read, it is "How Do Committees Invent?" by @conways_law.
It's not just the origin of "Conways Law", it's also packed with compelling observations about scaling and legacy systems we're doomed to write.
Read it today.

1/ Food Delivery Retail Chain Business have moved from Technology to Operations (#FoodTech to #FoodOps). Ordering Food Online has became a regular necessity in Indian Cities. Third Party Delivery Companies need to standardize the Package Size and other aspects, if they want to
2/ Scale the Business. Customers don't like to be left guessing. Guessing push people to look for options and drive them away from business. It also creates distrust. Customer like, What you see is What you get. The CEO's of Food Delivery Retail must meet and come to a Collective
3/ Consensus. In the long run Defining Standards would Scale the Business. #investors #operations #FoodTech #FoodOps #Retail #Business #Scaling #Strategy #Management #Swiggy #Zomato #UberEat #FoodPanda #Delivery #CX #UX #CEO
