carlosgr_nlp @zehavoc @soldni @ani_nenkova Oh, come on, that's sad. Then, every other journal website in every other field: "We only publish elite, top-tier, groundbreaking, seminal papers" - and they proceed to publish several hundred papers a year. The level of low self-esteem and inferiority complex in NLP is absurd.

annastayshaa My 8yo in the car today: "Do you want me to throw the confetti in my pocket?"
Me: "No not in the car! - why do you have confetti in your pocket?"
8yo: "It's my emergency confetti, I carry it everywhere in case there is good news."

EhudReiter Talking to student (not at Aberdeen)
Me: You're excited by end-to-end neural techniques, but unlikely to work in your (health-related) domain; major safety issues and limited training data
Student: But this is the only thing ACL/EMNLP/etc will accept, and I need to publish!

geruchtekellner @personaldebatte War mal mit meinen Eltern und deren erweitertem Freundeskreis wandern. Viele ältere Leute. Mit dabei waren zwei Personen, die sich vor gut 30 Jahren hatten scheiden lassen, seitdem null Kontakt. Sie zu ihm: "Entschuldigung, waren Sie nicht mal mit mir verheiratet?"

geruchtekellner Ich fand das ja nie witzig, weil der einzige wirkliche Witz an der Sache ist, dass die innovativste britische Uni einfach auf halber Strecke zwischen beiden "places" in Milton Keynes gebaut wurde, aber so im Lexikon kriegt mich der Humor dann doch. pic.twitter.com/XsGrlpDCSJ

Agreed. Having had five years of high school French, I took a class on French phonetics during my Erasmus stay in Paris. It was an eye-opener. twitter.com/adimit/status/…

At one point I couldn't remember why I had switched from oh-my-zsh to prezto. Luckily I've found a new reason to stick with prezto: prettier default for agnoster prompt venv segment.

vaspider (He was delighted. He thought it was great.)

And so we talked through the necessity of the exam, and the doc asked her permission, and gained it.

But she was 8, and had enforced her boundaries around touch with a man in authority. I was proud.

vaspider And when I knew the lesson had gotten through was at a check up when the doctor was touching her belly and she said "pink elephants! That's too ticklish, I don't like it!"

Once I explained, the doctor laughed, and said "oh wow, did you give your kid a safe word?"

Yes! I did!

samopriya Devastated to learn that the Mari don't use their letter ҥ /ŋ/ to write foreign names with /ŋ/. Instead, they follow Russian convention — нг. I think it'll take me a few weeks to recover from this revelation.

jabjibber The first article, Built to Last by Mar Hicks is superb. It's about COBOL, an ancient but still-useful programming language so derided in the industry that I never considered learning it til now. But it also torpedoes the linked logics of Silicon Valley & austerity. Check it out twitter.com/logic_magazine…
