A classic example of why we need to complicate our narratives about celebrating "diversity." This lab is led by a woman of color and has students of color in it, and they are doing some fuckshit that aids and abets mass incarceration, housing, and employment discrimination. https://t.co/1ncfbLYd0J

This is nonsense economics, and to a spectacular extent.

It may or may not make electoral sense for the LibDems to try to win Tory voters by becoming the George Osborne party.

But we have recently seen the long-term harmful effects of lying to the public about basic economics. https://t.co/OnW1dQL40Y

Behavior and complex information: tell people the average contribution to a public good and they will cluster around it; tell them the distribution of donations and they will contribute all or nothing. Don't believe it? Check it out! https://t.co/XUmeIRJvUy

Today I was working with David Spivak and Brendan Fong on our new course, Programming with Categories. It will take place in January at MIT as part of IAP. We'll introduce categorical concepts and teach elements of Haskell to illustrate them. Yes, all 18 lectures will be recorded

I am not sure how many people have a favorite function. I do and it is x^x. Not because it is particularly useful, but because of the expression any student (me included when I was younger) have on their face the very first time they encounter it πŸ™‚ pic.twitter.com/7h3hSpx2p6

Cross section calculations include a factor of the relative velocity of the two particles: vA - vB.

What does this factor mean, especially given that it looks like it can be *twice* as large as the speed of light for two photons hitting one another head-on? (1/4) pic.twitter.com/gocN5vQPot

Fun fact: the most massive supermassive black hole discovered is TON 618, 66 BILLION times the mass of the Sun. That makes its event horizon, the point beyond which not even light can escape, ~1300 AU. With the solar system being ~122 AU, TON 618 would swallow it 11 times over!

In math, often a good idea that solves a problem you've stewed on for months just suddenly comes to you.

This is the time when any good mathematician should immediately stop thinking about it and celebrate this little win, before discovering the sign error that ruins everything
