I'm excited for this. Pretty sure we'll discover amazing people and ideas who otherwise would never have made it to the TED stage. Including you?! https://twitter.com/TEDTalks/status/1133442018334728192

Confidence is complicated and this is an important talk. Thank you, @MsPackyetti. As a parent, I really related to your stories of how easy it is to crush (or buoy!) a spirit, all in the name of teaching. So grateful for your candor. https://twitter.com/MsPackyetti/status/1130489999625998338

“The politics of revenge, retribution and fuck-it-all” is a hell of a phrase. https://twitter.com/Chris_arnade/status/1130635819864252416

In other news, @KarissaScience and her team at Los Alamos recently created the world's first computer simulation of a gene (a billion atoms). Wowza! https://phys.org/news/2019-04-scientists-billion-atom-biomolecular-simulation.html

Haunted by the video of the Guatemalan kid being reunited with his dad. Haunted. And mindful of the fact that we *can't* look away, because that's how this happens.

I thought feeling exhausted was just part of the modern condition. And then, this talk from @sleepdiplomat, and a lightbulb went off: we don't prioritize sleep, and it kills us. Yikes. This talk has changed everything for me! https://www.ted.com/talks/matt_walker_sleep_is_your_superpower

There are a handful of bylines I remember from looking at NYT front pages as a little kid. Robert Pear is one of them. Then I got hired as a copy editor at NYT and got to work with him. 1/x https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/08/obituaries/robert-pear-dead.html

I have been without a phone for nearly a week and apart from the fact I can't change the radio station or pay my bills, it's been glorious.

I find the way Es Devlin embraces the necessarily transient nature of her art so beautiful as to be painful. Gah, this talk! https://www.ted.com/talks/es_devlin_mind_blowing_stage_sculptures_that_fuse_music_and_technology
