The founders’ genius lay in their willingness to cast doubt on fixed ways of thinking inherited from the past. To make them final arbiters is to traduce their spirit. Jefferson might disagree, but he would enjoy the ensuing debate.

Twitter Studies Considered Unsurprising

“It's hard to imagine a result that we could get from these data that we wouldn't subsequently be able to reconcile with what we already know about life,” he says. “If your standard for data-driven social science is that it deliver deeply counterintuitive yet still believable results, I'm not sure that's possible.”

I haven't read he Menczer research, but it sounds cool. More of CSCI "we built this awesome thing" kind of paper than a "we are answering this question" kind of paper. The polarization question is one I am actually actively working on. The only way to answer it convincingly (for me) is with randomized trials. Although I suppose with enough longitudinal data you might be able say something descriptive but still interesting.

I say this a lot, but Twitter is the fruit fly of web-based social science. It's bound to be rather uninteresting, but provides a good place to verify what we already know with enough scale to actually measure subtle effects.

Crazy lady who lives above me lowers a tray of cat food for the cats living in our backyard. She also feeds the pigeons and squirrels who live back there.

Listening to "Watch the Throne," the new Jay-Z and Kanye album. Look at how blatant this is:

Track 9: "Who Gon Stop Me"
Flux Pavilion - I Can't Stop

Track 12: "Why I Love You"
Cassius - I Love You So (HQ)

I realize these are "samples," but as +Benjamin Gillespie points out, these are current and popular songs, which are just being rapped over. I realize that everybody steals from everybody, but this is just lazy. "Coincidentally" both of these songs were remixed on a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix by Nero (released November 2010):
