Sometimes you check just a few examples and decide something is always true. But sometimes even 9.8 × 10⁴² examples is not enough!!!@gregeganSF and I came up with this shocker here on Twitter. To see what's really going on, visit my blog:https://t.co/Yw0S0Iyyx9 pic.twitter.com/1FThY9skeZ

Friends! I am so happy to share that my little booklet “What is Applied Category Theory?” is now available on the arXiv. It’s a collection of introductory, expository notes inspired by the ACT workshop that took place earlier this year. Enjoy! https://t.co/EPYP19z14x pic.twitter.com/O4uVhj401s

If it's ever bothered you that an infinite set (unlike a finite set) doesn't get smaller when you take away an element from it, you might enjoy my essay "A New Game With Infinity", which describes a different way to measure the sizes of some infinite sets: https://t.co/DgNEG796Oz

My paper (with @JmBuldu), "Frequency-based brain networks: From a multiplex framework to a full multilayer description", is out in final form (in @netneurosci): https://t.co/axoq1ELHDA

Can you find the easter egg in the paper? Hint: This is Spinal Tap.

Check out Tai-Danae Bradley's new short book "What is Applied Category Theory?" It's free, it's friendly, it's fun. It explains the big ideas, then applies them to chemistry and linguistics.

You can follow her here on Twitter: she's @math3ma.https://t.co/nx5mbQ1nGJ

Perhaps a decent time to announce this: I'll be giving a webinar October 8 at ipSpace on connectivity in graphs and why this mathematical concept matters in network design. It is a paid webinar hosted by @ioshints . If you're interested, here's the link: https://t.co/hB0JpfHke6
