As someone who studied aeronautical engineering and flies a lot, it’s almost criminally unfair that I never get to be on the flights where I get to see what true engineering looks like in practice
Normal people: “oh my god our engine blew up”

Me: “oh this is fascinating, will they also jettison fuel before landing and if so can i see it???”

I really wish Nazis didn’t threaten to and try to murder me so many times I had to move to a different country away from my family. I also wish that was criminal.
Who’s responsible for climate change?

- the person who gets to see her wife four times a year, doesn’t own a car, takes rail transit for most travel, or
- corporations

Neoliberalism is the death sentence for us all

My absolute favorite genre of tweet is “omg this is what it would look like if the COMMIES got their way” while posting a picture of something that is very much happening under capitalism
In any case, pictures of empty shops are rather foolish because the carrying capacity of a supply chain isn’t best measures by the literal inventory space of shelves but rather the speed at which they can be restocked.
Regardless of economic system, there will always be emergencies that occur where spikes of demand outstrip the inventory capacity of local shops. This is not surprising

Was chatting with a coworker today about what "data strategy" means and figured I'd share some thoughts since it was a good discussion. You can take these concepts and apply them to fighting white supremacy or pandemic management, if you'd like.
To understand how to use data effectively, you need two things:

- a vision for what you want data to help you do; and
- a plan for getting all of your people fluent with how to use data.
The rest is implementation details. But broadly speaking, you can break down the way data is being used in (at least) four escalating categories:

- descriptive
- diagnostic
- predictive
- prescriptive

Each of these builds on the one before it.

The clear abuse of “emotional support animal” is ableist and has made it significantly harder for disabled people who rely on service animals to receive appropriate accommodations.
This is not to say that all support animals are fraudulent. But the element of training is essential, and there needs to be better regulation of support animals as service animals.
