If, like me, you have the desire to help but are unsure of how, because things feel seismic and primal and massive, I propose one thing we can always do to avoid #paralysis is begin with personal practice. #BlackLivesMatter

We become what we practice.
#Practice a skill and you become better at it. Cease its practice and you become better at its opposite. There's no status quo. We are always practicing something. #BlackLivesMatter

If I cease practicing the acquisition, validation and refinement of knowledge, I don't just become worse at learning, I become better at misinformation and ignorance. #BlackLivesMatter

Here's my promised #tweetorial for the month of October 2019. The theme is "How to Communicate your Ideas in Groups, without being Downed". Ready? How many times have you experienced the inability to put across your point of view to another, because the person whom 1/n

PSA: If you’re applying to speak at an event, often the only thing those selecting a #speaker use to make selections is the talk title and description. So I have some #speaking tips to share when replying to a #CallforPapers or #CallForSpeakers...
1. If your title is confusing, weird, unclear, too cutesy, or it feels like you put no effort into it, that may work against you. Organizers want talks attendees will be interested in and it must be easy to understand what the talk is about based on the title alone
2. If your talk description is all about you, it’s only 1 sentence, it’s sarcastic/unprofessional, it isn’t aligned with the event focus/theme, or it’s totally self-serving, you might need to rethink things
