Retweeted by Rita J. King@adamclarkestes All of those symbols are glyphs. The word "foolproof" starts and ends with the glyph that symbolizes "unknown."@adamclarkestes the comment from HAL is about how perfect and foolproof his model is. He will never make a mistake.That comment from HAL (see last tweet) is about how perfect and foolproof his model is. He will never make a mistake. cc @Grady_BoochJust accidentally copied & pasted a comment from HAL 9000 in Imagination Age font. I feel closer to the singularity. The technium doesn't need that many people.For what grievous offense are the turkeys being pardoned?@WeizmannInst @WeizmannScience @edyong209 that's great! I'd love to see a link to the piece.
@Entrepreneur That title was given to me by NASA Langley's think-tank and it grew from there. I never would have "self-proclaimed" it. 2/2@Entrepreneur I love when you publish my work but please change "self-proclaimed futurist." 1/2I can't wait to read @brainpicker's review of ‘Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs,’ by @lirarandall! hours into a lecture about the history of software architecture at Science House. Wish you were here @Grady_Booch.Learning about "planning poker" in depth at Science House today.
Being a futurist for @SciEntEx is absurdly fun.
I can't help but laugh at how my father would have reacted to seeing this when I was a tween. @PixarInsideOut I agree. Inside Out is one of the best movies of all time.And above the Chrysler Building #nyc will check that out, thank you!@alexanderchee That sounds productive and efficient.@alexanderchee I can't believe it's 2015 and we still don't understand social media.This sounds like a vetting/hiring blunder with a social media manifestation. Not a "social media blunder." @JosephSteinberg "social media blunder" implies that the thinking is okay as long as he didn't tweet it.@Inc @JosephSteinberg that's a vetting/hiring blunder with a social media manifestation.Happy creative weekend, everybody.'s bold push into genetically customized animals (thanks @journal__club!) #crispr

@hoffmanpaul let's go get @pickover sometime and bring him to Science House.@nytcorneroffice I would love to invite you to Science House. We specialize in visualizing culture and leadership development for orgs/teams@Penenberg @nytimes Yes, I agree with that. The rigor and discipline are extreme, but possible.@Penenberg @nytimes poor editing and slipshod reporting are also problems, but not the same problem as inherent bias, a human inevitability.@Penenberg @nytimes When Fukushima happened I consulted to many different media outlets because I understood spent fuel rods and more.@Penenberg @nytimes I covered the nuclear industry for several years with no prior experience. Had to learn from scratch how to "see" it.@Penenberg @nytimes I have mixed feelings. Sometimes familiarity can lead to habit and blinders.@authorsahunt @ScrivenerApp @GramrgednAngel @lisajanicecohen an error message told me to delete it and download it again from the App Store@GramrgednAngel @authorsahunt @lisajanicecohen thank you! I have accessed the backup.@BenedictEvans not just is a challenge to balance but it's partly because our ideologies, goals and realities aren't aligned.@BenedictEvans Twitter sometimes too short to convey context.@BenedictEvans yes, the point is that the communications were encrypted, not explicit. That's what I meant.@BenedictEvans interesting. Will read, thanks.@BenedictEvans of course. But the history of warfare tells us that explicit comms are uncommon and foolish.@BenedictEvans PS. I'm not saying I'm a crypto-advocate. Just careful about assumptions.@BenedictEvans How do you know who they are in advance? The assumption that they are being explicit in emails is a big one.@jackschofield that's what I ended up doing. No such thing as too paranoid when it comes to a manuscript. @ScrivenerApp@juliangough thank you for the info. Haven't solved it but also haven't lost my work so that's all that matters. @ScrivenerAppThank you, everybody who responded about @ScrivenerApp. I have accessed the files and I'm manually backing up the whole work.@GramrgednAngel @ScrivenerApp @IlanaCT @ScrivenerCoach thank you. This is a huge emergency for me and I need help.@ScrivenerCoach I don't know what to do and it's a huge emergency for me. Can you help?@ScrivenerCoach scrivener just crashed with my entire book in it and the error message says to delete it and download again from app store.Anyone who uses @ScrivenerApp? It just crashed and told me to delete it and my entire book is in there. I need help.@ScrivenerApp I'm having a huge Scrivener emergency. The app crashed with my entire book in it and says it's damaged. Need help right now.@JoyceCarolOates how do you choose from among the applicants?
@stylinfunk @desireedawns that is *not* a current picture of Paris@KJP @Benioff that picture of Paris is *not* from tonight.
Social media truly reveals the full spectrum of the human condition during a crisis.The @WolframResearch code one-liner contest includes an honorable mention for a @nytimes word cloud.
