lecktuch Und nein, wir möchten uns kein aus Kondomen oder Gummihandschuhen basteln.

Das ist mühsam, unsicher, unsexy, nicht groß genug, ein haptisches Desaster und schmeckt durch Zusätze oft auch scheiße.

Außerdem muss sich auch niemand ein Kondom stricken.

LindsayPB Power is like transport: it's better for everybody if it's as cheap as possible, and as reliable as possible.

What this means? Public transport and nucler power are both lousy investments - but they bring *huge* benefits to the wider economy.

Do the damn math.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 9:28 PM, Jul 29th, 2019 via Twitter for Android)

LindsayPB It's the same thing as transport. Roads are heavily subsidised. Railways tend to be heavily subsidised in many places too.

Neither make any money.

Equally, if they didn't exist, doing business would be impossible.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 9:28 PM, Jul 29th, 2019 via Twitter for Android)

LindsayPB Let's draw a line between "business case" and "economic case".

Business case is not terribly appealing. Nuclear plants are long-term investments with slow returns, and they depress power prices.

Economic case? Cheap, reliable, clean power. For decades.

wilkeraziz Hey @ACL2019_Italy Thumbs up for projecting a timer along with slides, it really helps session chairs. What about we use the conf app (?) to gather (and up/downvote) questions from the audience? Chairs could use that to make better use of those precious minutes after a talk!

AlvinGrissomII I really appreciated this talk.

I have a lot of concerns about what hate speech detection is trying to do. When these systems go wrong, which is often, it's always marginalized people who are hurt the most.

I don't trust humans to censor speech; I certainly don't trust machines twitter.com/emilymbender/s…

Grumpfdalm Ufff, @wiyppodcast, ich hör euch gerne, aber was ihr über nichtbinäre Personen zusammenimprovisiert habt, war kaum zu ertragen. Dinge nicht zu wissen ist voll ok, aber dann spekuliert doch bitte nicht herum, sondern recherchiert oder holt euch Expertise.
