hannawallach "Won't having to prioritize ethics make ML less fun?" Yes, it will. But that's your privilege talking about your ethical debt. ML was never fun for people involuntarily represented in datasets or subject to uncontestable, life-altering decisions made by ML tools. 11/11

hannawallach "I want to do something to fight racism. But I want it to be BIG and guaranteed to succeed." No. Expecting that anything worth your time to do should be big, visible, and rewarded is your privilege talking. 8/11

hannawallach "I didn't know what to do, so I didn't do anything." That isn't good enough. You're a researcher -- you know how to learn about a topic. 5/11

hannawallach "Are you saying there's racism in ML? Give me examples!" Yes, there's racism in ML. Why are there so few Black members of the ML community? Racism doesn't just mean hate crimes -- it means systemic oppression, including living with continual, inescapable microaggressions. 3/11

hannawallach I'm tired. And if I -- an enormously privileged member of the ML community -- am tired, you can bet that less-privileged members are absolutely exhausted and crushed. Why? Here is a short list of things I have heard in the ML or ML-adjacent community over the past month. 1/11

TomBasgen Hey, before the media folks do too much rehab work free for the cops, remember that this all started because 3 cops let a 4th cop slowly strangle a man to death on camera while a bunch of regular people begging him to stop.

There's a video, you have eyes.

astefanowitsch Ich habe, anders als @habibitus, tatsächlich mal um die Unterstützung der Polizei gebeten, als ich wochenlang telefonische Morddrohungen erhielt. Meine Erfahrungen mit dem Staatsschutz des LKA Hamburg waren dann sehr positiv, der zuständige Beamte hat sich viel Zeit genommen, 1/

EnglishGibson “Please cover mouth and nose and keep distance to each other.”

It’s ok, whoever translated that BVG announcement, you can use determiners! Remember, English has no grammatical gender to worry about, so there’s nothing to stop you from saying:

“Please cover YOUR mouth and nose.”

cliff1976 @EnglishGibson Are you saying they leave the determiners out when a compound object is of two different grammatical genders? So they can avoid having to say "Bitte ihrEN Mund und ihrE Nase abdecken" or similar? OMG is THAT the reason they don't use determiners‽ *pfennig fällt*

VeitKlapp Mein Opa hat mir heute erzählt, dass immer, wenn Oma sauer auf ihn ist, er den Deckel vom Marmeladenglas festdreht, damit sie wieder mit ihm reden muss.

Genau DAS möchte ich auch mal.

frachtschaden Bemerkenswert, wie aus einer Sequenz von Motiven (anstatt eines Themas), die in der Trompetenstimme fast eher an "Chinatown" (1974) erinnern, durch eine Iteration das Enterprise-Thema wurde:

_noujoum Geht mir tatsächlich auch seit Jahren so. Müsste eigentlich früh schlafen, um am nächsten Tag wieder produktiv arbeiten zu können, bin aber super trotzig, dass mir nur so wenig Zeit für mich bleibt vom Tag. Mit weniger Kapitalismus wär das nicht passiert. twitter.com/daphnekylee/st…

daphnekylee Learned a very relatable term today: “報復性熬夜” (revenge bedtime procrastination), a phenomenon in which people who don’t have much control over their daytime life refuse to sleep early in order to regain some sense of freedom during late night hours.

tesseralis My suggestion is we name the main branch "canon". Consider:

* "we'll add it to the canon"
* "we've updated the canon"
* "oh is this canon?" "no it's fanfic (another branch)" twitter.com/Una/status/127…
