The internet, and the world, is worse off without him. I miss him very much.
My friend Peter Eckersley died last week. The @WSJ published this very nice obituary that captures both many of his accomplishments as well as quite a bit about how he lived and was. https://www.wsj.com/articles/peter-eckersley-helped-encrypt-internet-traffic-to-foil-snoops-11662732014
After many with years @lucyluwang as a friend, it's so great to have her as colleague! Welcome back to @UW!
New iSchool faculty member @lucyluwang uses the power of artificial intelligence to make scientific documents more accessible and usable. #UWdiscovers
My year at @CASBSStanford was one of the most important years of intellectual growth in my life & career. @margaretlevi's direct engagement with my research, indirect influence through her own scholarship, and leadership of the center are among the most important reasons why.
End of an era
This day, 31 August, is @margaretlevi's last as CASBS director. She remains connected w/the Center as a faculty fellow
I'd like to organize a John Henry style competition between a top sushi chef and this inarizushi making robot and call it "Aburaage Against the Machine." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN5CfIHACLM
Stop to consider that you might not be the only person who gets a Google Scholar alert every time your paper is cited, opens up any citing papers listed in the alert, and then Ctrl-Fs for your own name.
Ooohhh... I think I've uncovered a new variant of citation practice:
The "begrudging-dripping-with-contempt-footnoted citation"

New paper by @jdfoote from my research collective!
Online communities are deeply interconnected and interdependent.
@jdfoote argues that systems theory can help us to study interdependencies, and that online platforms have the sort of data that is enabling really exciting new research. https://blog.communitydata.science/a-systems-approach-to-studying-online-communities/
Today's Featured Article on @Wikipedia is a riot. Literally and figuratively. @workingclasshistory would definitely appreciated it! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dispute_between_Darnhall_and_Vale_Royal_Abbey
We are coming to Paris for #ICA22 next week! Check out this blog post to get stickers and see presentations by @groceryheist @carlcolglazier @FloorFiers @jdfoote @kayleachampion @makoshark and @aaronshaw! @icahdq https://blog.communitydata.science/community-data-science-collective-at-ica-2022/
Software patches to online games are an excellent example.
After a software patch, the hundreds of pages on a game’s fan wikis about characters, item, and other gameplay need to be updated. There are categories enumerating separate pages about patches themselves—that’s how important patches are! 2/🧵
Add me to the list people who picked up COVID at #CHI2022. Positive test and all the symptoms. I had a negative PCR on a sample taken the day AFTER I returned to SEA so hopefully I didn't share it with anyone in NOLA. Test frequently and take care of yourself everybody!
Caught in the act! Presented my first CHI paper with @makoshark, @sayamindu, and @aaronshaw this year. Really rewarding experience. Thanks to everyone who attended and to all the folks in the @comdatasci lab for helping me along the journey. https://twitter.com/acm_chi/status/1521629338285838336
Presented my paper with @makoshark and @sayamindu in #CHI2022!! My first in-person CHI presentation!Thanks so much for everyone who came to my talk - happy to chat more!
A "hybrid" course at #CHI2022 in which the instructor and all registered (paying) attendees were remote. Someone was guarding the door to make sure nobody snuck in to watch the Zoom session being projected to the completely empty room.
I'll be at #CHI2022 in New Orleans to support my group presenting their work (including awesome papers by @ReginaRCheng, @sejal_khatri, and @Stefania_druga). It's been too long! Let's meet up!
Come meet us at CHI 2022 https://blog.communitydata.science/come-meet-us-at-chi-2022/
Awesome new paper by @jdfoote makes a compelling argument for a return to systems theorizing in communication research now that we have the data and methods to deliver on its promise. Check out the thread! https://twitter.com/jdfoote/status/1520069248047063042
