Last Friday was the @uwdub@twitter.com retreat—@UW@twitter.com's annual day-long get-together for people working at the intersection of people and computing. I was the faculty co-organizer w/ @jonfroehlich@twitter.com. Zara (@uwmhcid@twitter.com) put together this awesome video documenting the event! 🤩

There are a *bunch* of other incredible computational communication scholars running as well! I hope you'll vote for me but I actually feel pretty conflicted myself! If one of the other candidates gets the plurality, I think that would pretty awesome too! (5/5)

I've posted a candidate statement that you can read on the election site. The things I'm most psyched to do include increasing the presence/profile of computational methods in the field/@icahdq@twitter.com & working to increase diversity, , and within @ica_cm@twitter.com. (4/5)

This is basically a "service role." Leadership plans the conference, goes to meetings, and so on. I'm running because although I teach at @UWComm@twitter.com, my background/training is outside com. @ica_cm@twitter.com provided a home for me and an path into the field. I am running to give back. (3/5)

You need to be a member of @icahdq@twitter.com and the @ica_cm@twitter.com sub-group to vote. If you do computational work in/around communication, you should *definitely* be a part of @ica_cm@twitter.com! Details on how to vote are on this page: icahdq.org/page/Election2019 (2/5)

I am running for Vice Chair in @ica_cm@twitter.com (the International Communication Association's Computational Methods group)! The winner will later upgrade to Chair. The election ends in a few days (Oct 15). If you are a computational communication scholar, I hope you'll vote for me! (1/5)

The other keynotes are @_sagesharp_@twitter.com, @lishevita@twitter.com & @abbycabs@twitter.com! I'm *even more* humbled to be at the top of the program with those three! @seagl@twitter.com 2019 is going to be great!

As a lifelong Seattleite and most-of-my-lifelong free software person, I am *incredibly* honored to be giving one of the keynote addresses at @seagl@twitter.com this year.

I have known @zephoria@twitter.com for many years. She is *so* deserving of the @EFF@twitter.com pioneer award. Her speech is important and incredibly timely. I feel honored to know her and to have worked with her!

A new paper I worked on describes how Discord moderators build innovative solutions to scaling problems with tools from their past experience w/ Reddit as guides & templates. The work was led by Charlie Kiene w/ Aaron Jiang. mako.cc/copyrighteous/how-disc

Spam/phishing email from the "atdot.cc support team" elicits a fleeting happy fantasy before reality rushes back in. Alas, if any such team exists, I am the only member.😔
