Retweeted by Use Your Imagination @mecredy @likaluca Lots of things, but at the core: I pared back on non-essentials and mental clutter. @likaluca This is a great takeaway. @likaluca I take my work seriously but I do not take myself seriously. @likaluca I feel younger now than I did when I was actually younger, and I'm much, much happier. @Raphaeleads Creativity is everywhere, in everyone. @cccalum It wasCoffee cup on a chess board is the most Science House looking Matisse I've ever seen. https://t.co/5W0LMl6yssSome Matisse women https://t.co/GySIEkx5EK

@erikhinton WhatWe can predict eclipses 1000 years in advance. Dramatic testimony to the unyielding regularities underlying the natural world. 🌙

@ibogost Not being allowed a CPK was, oddly, a pivotal identity altering event. @ibogost I have NO IDEA what I'm looking at here but I'm calling my mother to thank her for not allowing me to have a Cabbage Patch Kid. @elspethreeve I am in awe of this work, Elle. @jesticide @mariskreizman Which side is proud boys? @Beschizza @villagevoice Isn't guaranteed once you agree to ToS @Beschizza I wrote a cover story for @villagevoice in 2001 about Terms of Service and free speech, which isn't guaranteed.Inviting me to speak at an academic conference on AI is like inviting Mary Shelley to speak on transplant surgery
