んで黒人俳優のSilvan elf(と髭無し女性ドワーフ)盛り上がりを眺めてるのですが、#theringsofpower #JRRT精読

英語圏:予告篇以来「原典に忠実じゃない」「Wokeすんな」
日本語圏:本編公開後「ダークエルフと黒人エルフて違うの?→ポリコレするなら本気で/オリジナルでやれ」

な感じ…(続
#theringsofpower #JRRT精読
ただ日本語圏ではHistory of Middle-earth全12巻も最新のNatureOfMiddle-earthも邦訳がないので
01)エルフの容貌については、#JRRT の最初期から最晩年までにいろいろ設定や範囲に変更があり、どの時点のものを「原典」とするかで違ってくる

01b)エルフの肌についてのfair of skinという表現は「白い」「美しい」いずれを(も)意味するのかEldar以外も含むのか…はけっこう微妙
01c)「ト翁は「黒い肌のエルフは絶対存在しない」とは書いてない!」等の「悪魔の証明」を誰かが言い出しかねないし^^;

As much as I love everyone FINALLY embracing remote work from anywhere, been in this game for a while now…

In 2016, I set out to build a globally competitive AI #startup from Sault Ste Marie, Canada.

Here’s how that went:
I had a vision.
I had a dream.

I wanted to revitalize a steeltown with tech.

I wanted to prove that you could build best-in-class tech from ANYWHERE in the world. In 2016.

I was proven wrong.
I was literally laughed at by Toronto investors.

Most Waterloo investors didn’t believe my dreams could be possible up “North”.

I ultimately determined that local Soo investors would have been more likely to fund a cupcake shop than deep tech AI; despite endless attempts.

Et si je lançais un thread de mes #lectures pour 2022 ? Hop, c'est parti.
1- "Elder Race" d'Adrian Tchaikovsky. Novella entre #SF et #Fantasy, sympathique mais qui m'a moyennement convaincu malgré de bonnes idées. Les quiproquos engendrés par les différences de culture/langage sont cependant bien gérés. Peut-être lue sur trop de temps pour en profiter. Image
2- "Vivez l'Aventure > Minecraft, Les mines de Kômoriom" par Alain T. Puysségur et Vladimir Subbotin. Revival de la série de Gründ, ici en s'appuyant sur #Minecraft. Aventure sympa, pas trop complexe avec énigmes accessibles aux + jeunes (avec juste un tout petit peu d'aide). Image

#SF 2021: 1000s's of overdose deaths the lethality of fentanyl, the infamy of nonprofit profiteers, 1000's of predatory drug dealers, nonexistent law enforcement, shit policies & the power of the brain’s opioid receptors to suppress/surmount human instincts to live.
Endless failures but the most egregious is our nihilistic @SFDAOffice @chesaboudin a man who lacks both a moral compass & a conscience to protect these kids. “As long as we have people who are addicted to drugs, who are willing to destroy their own bodies and their own lives, no
amount of investment in law enforcement is going to solve this problem.”
— San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin, The Wall Street Journal. Let that quote sink. Chesa's sole job is to protect citizens esp. vulnerable kids like Scott but Chesa adamantly refuses to prosecute

Friday afternoon around 3 he & friends parked in the Marina. Shortly after they noticed men breaking into their car.

Kane & his mates gave chase. That’s when he said they were held at gunpoint.

Kane joked with me that he would never come back to SF.
In reality he says he *will be back in SF for your in December. Though he says he won’t be bringing anything valuable with him and reminds others not to keep valuables in the car. #FilipinoAmericanHistoryMonth #SF

#BroadbandForAll is not only about online connectivity but it's also a job creator! It's a needed solution across sectors that impacts our health, education, jobs, and even remote family visits with elders. @CAGovernor @Rendon63rd @SenToniAtkins @NancySkinnerCA #BroadbandCantWait
In California, Gov. Newsom proposed $7B for broadband that the legislature should vote into action now to start closing the digital divide. We don't have time to waste anymore. #BroadbandForAll #CABudget #BroadbandCantWait @CAGovernor @Rendon63rd @SenToniAtkins @NancySkinnerCA
Sacramento set aside $7B to build high capacity broadband infrastructure for all, but might vote tomorrow to "think it over." CA's largest 5 foundations @calfund @TSFF @siliconvalleycf @sd_fdn @eastbaycf support entire investment w/out delay #BroadbandForAll #BroadbandCantWait

We're listening to public comment and debate for an environmental impact appeal to a coffeeshop before @sfbos at 1801 Mission Street. It's already called a "tech hub" cafe, a "high-end" cafe, and a "luxury" business twice.
The cafe will be located within the American Indian Cultural District (which includes Mission Dolores and Dolores Park), which callers say was not consulted on the proposed cafe. americanindianculturaldistrict.org/cultural-distr…
A caller brings up the "Walmart effect" of the proposed cafe at 1801 Mission St. FYI the cafe is the Creamery, which wants to move from 4th and Townsend. Background: sfchronicle.com/local/heatherk…

NEW: #COVID in 2020 closed schools and stores and cast social inequities in stark relief. Now we're seeing signs of an #SF that is more civic-minded. Reforms that have been elusive for years helped renters, businesses, the unhoused, and others. thefrisc.com/5-silver-linin… 1/
The changes hardly offset the pandemic’s toll; more than 500 of our neighbors are gone. But there are clear improvements spurred by COVID. We’re taking a closer look at 5 of them — streets, spaces, homelessness, housing, and Muni. 2/
With Slow Streets and Shared Spaces in particular, we're looking at an inconceivably quick set of transformations, the most dramatic since @SundayStreets kicked off in 2008. Can you imagine the ordeal something like that would have required pre-COVID? 3/

Conservatorship is a hot-button topic in #SF.
But for Supervisor @RafaelMandelman, the issue isn’t just about policy. It’s personal. We spoke with him about his experience conserving his mother & why he thinks conservatorship can help move SF forward.hrsy.media/6LW9qS (1/5)
.@RafaelMandelman’s mother battled mental illness and homelessness throughout her life.

“I'm a freshman at Yale, and I'm on a payphone in the library talking to her in a homeless shelter, which was this sort of crazy dichotomy," he said. (2/5)
This personal experience led @RafaelMandelman to become a major supporter of conservatorship in SF.
But he’s disappointed with its slow implementation so far.
In nearly two years, just one person has been placed in court-ordered treatment. (3/5) sfexaminer.com/news/conservat…

Jonathan D. Chang’s portrait (below, left) of Vicha Ratanapakdee, 84, killed on the streets of #SanFrancisco has became a symbol on #socialmedia in the fight vs anti-Asian violence in the US. Join me, the Thai-American community & others for #JusticeForVicha #VichaRatanapakdee
Originally from #Thailand, #VichaRatanapakdee 🙏moved to #SanFrancisco to help care for his grandkids. After finishing his daily routine of prepping his grandsons for their day, he was on his usual morning walk when he was violently shoved & kicked. #RIP thaienquirer.com/23795/opinion-…
“Disgusted, angry & sad”: L.A. artist Jonathan D. Chang says about killing of Vicha Ratanapakdee in #SF.

Indeed. One more unprovoked attack against Asian Americans, many elderly.

Vielerorts steigen d. Kosten für #Wohnen. Die Forderung nach #leistbaren Wohnen ist eine nachvollziehbare polit. Forderung. Verschieden Instrumente stehen zur Zielerreichung zur Verfügung. Viele Städte (uA #Berlin #SanFrancisco, #Wien) haben eine (teilweise) #Mietkontrolle 1/n
D.h es gibt in diesen Städten #Höchstmieten, #Mietendeckel #Mietobergrenzen, ... gleiche/ähnliche Konzepte. Ich möchte hier kurz empirische Evidenz diskutieren, die zeigt, dass diese #Mietkontrollen kein adäquates Mittel sind, sondern wahrscheinlich sogar kontraproduktiv. 2/n
Vorab diese Politikmaßnahme ist nicht neu & wurde von ÖkonomInnen theoretisch ausführlich behandelt. Hier etwa eine Schrift aus dem Jahr 1981. Mit Beiträgen uA. von #MiltonFriedman, #GeorgeStigler 3/n fraserinstitute.org/sites/default/…

Today in pulp... my Top 20 DAW book covers from the early years of this legendary imprint.

I'm only looking at the first 10 years of DAW (1972-82), but believe me there's plenty to choose from! #SundayThoughts Image
I'll choose two DAW covers from each year between 1972 & 1982, which I think set the bar for pulp sci-fi cover design. It will be quite an eclectic mix. Image
I'm not ranking my Top 20 DAW covers, just suggesting they're amongst the best of DAW's first 10 years in terms of capturing the feel of the 70s and early 80s. Feel free to disagree... Image

If there's a large migration of talented people from SF and NYC to Austin, Austin has a shot at being the next Silicon Valley.

#SF #NewYork #SiliconValley #technology #Austin #Texas

(Thread)
2/n

Remember: Texas actually has a long tradition of innovation.

For example, the integrated circuit was invented at Texas Instruments.

More recently, Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Apple have announced major campuses in Austin.

Google is building a new riverside building, and Facebook already has one.

L’#expoWisigoths est une occasion en or de parler des "Barbares".
Ce terme, utilisé originellement par les Grecs, est souvent employé aujourd’hui dans la création artistique pour définir un guerrier solitaire ou une horde. #Boucherie
Alors empoignez vos scramasaxes, sellez votre fidèle poney alezan, parez-vous de votre peau de bête autour de la taille, et allons sur les chemins de la réception du "Barbare" dans la #CulturePop en compagnie de @MathieuS31
#threadBarbare
Le terme "Barbare" définit au départ celui qui ne parle pas la langue commune, donc l’Autre.
Mais bizarrement, cet élément sera peu repris dans la création fictionnelle du Barbare, au contraire de leurs caractéristiques physiques et sociales.

Hey #CCSF Board Trustees, we know you have a mtg tomorrow and will deal with some issues in closed session. Public comment is very limited; 2 minutes is hardly enough.

There’s a coalition of students who are concerned about Chancellor/administrators, grades, & BUDGET.
We need an independent forensic audit to understand the financial situation. Of the past years. Anything less would be disrespectful & frankly lazy. Be diligent.

We’d like to talk to one Trustee before tomorrow’s mtg to understand what you’re doing to help #CCSF students now.
#CCSF needs clear, unified leadership right now. That includes our Trustees actively seeking feedback and input from a variety of involved students, including critics. Don’t put the entire burden on Student Trustee or our school reps that are barely surviving in this pandemic.

PLEASE HELP. a friend of mine -- who is in an at-risk group -- thinks this is all a hoax (more below). can you PLEASE post vids in reply? esp. from the #sf #bayarealockdown
if you are a medical worker maybe ask if patients would mind being videoed ?-- i KNOW y'all are too busy for this, but maybe it can help keep others like him at home.
because "it's all hype" doesn't cut it., and i'm worried that he is going to not shelter in place, and endanger himself, and those closest to him, two of whom are also in high risk groups!
