Just got the new book by @dorogovtsev@twitter.com & @jffmendes@twitter.com: “The Nature of Complex Networks.”

Looks fantastic!

Humbled to see my name in the “shout outs” and have a few of my papers cited. As someone who admired the authors' towering work as a PhD student way back, this feels surreal.

Straight to my never-ending pile of bad visualization examples...

This chart in today's @thetimes@twitter.com is a crime against mathematics, political science and data visualization.

I had the baby.

I decided that I should take the consequences of my actions.

I was just a teenager but I thought, 'If I'm old enough for sex, I'm old enough to look after a baby.'

Find yourself a Democratic Party establishment that fights as hard for reproductive rights as it fought to crush Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaigns.

How a decision fuelled and made by Christian fundamentalism still ends up making Muslims the face of regressive oppression!

Thoroughly political decision and an attack on the autonomy of poor and working class women. Culmination of decades of right wing activism while Dems stood by and did nothing. twitter.com/SCOTUSblog/status/

Die Gesichtsausdrücke sind so lächerlich... Sie erklärt, dass der Himmel blau ist, und die anderen gucken so an, als ob sie über Stringtheorie spricht.

I always thought that a disease like Alzheimer's serves as a definitive proof of our mortality — since if our memory is gone, then so are we, even if alive — but not that it fully disables *sentience*. I'm not sure I agree, since sentience can be intermittent and transient...

Home Secretary Priti Patel has approved the extradition of Julian to an American hellhole. A new appeal will now challenge the political rottenness of British 'justice'. Either we raise our voices as never before, or our silence colludes in the death of an heroic man.

Few people are so contemptible as Priti Patel.

An amoral henchperson of a lapdog UK government, unconditionally subservient to the US.

I can't help but marvel at the gigantic irony that the leading ML conference cannot solve a relatively simple reviewer matching problem.

RT @zacharylipton@twitter.com

The NeurIPS AC paper matching was so devastatingly bad this year that it puts the conference at risk. We’d be better off pumping the breaks & redoing assignments, even if it cost 2 weeks versus going ahead like this. I don’t know a single AC less than crestfallen by their pile.

One day we'll tell stories about how people thought language models were intelligent with the same incredulity of people thinking that cameras steal your soul, or that the train in the movie was actually going to crash into people.

On 13 June, Tony Blair is to receive a knighthood. The royal citation won't mention the lies and the deaths of hundreds of thousands of men, women and children. Meanwhile, Julian waits to be sent to a hellhole in America for exposing war crimes. Happy Jubilee.
