EnglishGibson So I guess the rule is:
“Always travel ‘nach’ a country unless its name begins with an article”.

Thus:
nach England fliegen
nach Griechenland fliegen
nach Irak fliegen

but:
in die USA fliegen
in die Türkei fliegen
in den Irak fliegen

EnglishGibson One thing about not having learned German at school is that I never had certain mistakes beaten out of me early on. Until recently, for instance, I was still saying “nach den USA fliegen“ instead of “in die USA fliegen“.

frachtschaden Das Problem an dieser Form von Legitimation ist, dass sie einem schnell auf die Füße fällt, wenn man selbst durch so eine Sanktionierung betroffen ist, eben weil die organisierbaren Formen von gesellschaftlicher Ächtung stark vom gesellschaftlichen Klima abhängen.

frachtschaden Es handelt sich eigentlich um eine psychosoziale Sanktionierung von Meinungsäußerung, die dadurch legitimiert und mit Meinungsfreiheit im Einklang steht, weil sie keinem anerkannten Prinzip von Gewalt(en)ausübung entspricht.

frachtschaden Und weil man aus dem double-bind aus Pro-Meinungsfreiheit (mehr aus humanistischer Tradition) und insgeheimem Zensurwillen wieder nicht raus kommt, läuft alles wieder nur über Organisation von gesellschaftlicher Ächtung.

talkpod Pleasant surprises from
• Yes, Big Tech are all up in NLP, but there’s work for everyone.
• A lot of intimidating methods I didn’t learn are no longer used.
• I’ve been out of NLP a while, but talks weren’t over my head. I let some info go by, and learn from the rest.

hardmaru My contribution to the “science” vs engineering debate. I think papers should be about explaining reproducible ideas clearly, not about winning datascience competitions. (In the ideal world ;) it should be okay to sacrifice performance for clarity, simplicity and reproducibility. twitter.com/rjeli_/status/…
