Still haven't written Goodbye Minsky yet, but here's some local elementary school politics tied into the theme of maintaining cognitive diversity...

Well, define "too much", as I said the UK are strikingly successful for so few people.  You & I both chose to live there!

I don't believe universities can be replaced. Study is fun but painful. We need to go to the universities to share the fun and the pain with others.

The UK Govt wants to 'where possible ensure that research outcomes are exploited for the benefit of the UK."  Fortunately, since the UK is part of humanity and we all benefit from science, we're all set.  https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/higher-education-teaching-excellence-social-mobility-and-student-choice
Generally I agree with what they say about UK research and the utility of limiting bureaucracy, though note the UK already has the shortest funding applications I know of – and get excellent results from that I might add.  If there's a problem in exploitation, it's probably due to the lack of general education at the undergraduate level impeding technology transfer.  Maybe they should consider going to four or five year degrees like the US or Europe.  (Note that nominally Europe has switched to the British system already, but basically the British 3rd year is like the 1st year of a US or EU MSc, but there's no breadth outside of major in any of the three years, at least in England and Wales.  Scotland has a system more like the US one, at least for students doing honours degrees, which are most students.)
We’re seeking your views on our proposed next steps for higher education reform.

Why is it easier to use your Google credentials to sign into Overleaf (which doesn't even have a Google+ account) than +Google Scholar (which also doesn't, ha. Why do I?)

Also, when will the "new" Google+ support hangouts? That's the main thing I use Google+ for, accessing hangouts. They seem to work better here than on Gmail.

Documenting a number of recent insane assaults on foreign academics by the UK's conservative government.  (I'm sure Trump wouldn't be any better.)

http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/david-bowie  I remember watching this (1979).  I didn't know who Bowie was then, and I didn't really get into rock until after Lennon's death covered the airwaves with Beatles, but I was impressed by the costumes.  The Margaret Thatcher look was particularly striking.

I posted this blog on data, policing, #blacklivesmatter, policy & +Ted Rall right before I did an upgrade of my blogger and linked it to +Google+. I think it's really important so I'm posting it here with the others, even though it's a day older.

Dear Dr. Joanna Bryson,
 
On behalf of the organizing committee, we sent you a formal Invitation Letter several days ago for your participation of our congress as the Speaker of Track 9: *Advanced Materials for Energy* at the upcoming 5th Annual World Congress of Advanced Materials-2016 (WCAM-2016), which will be held during June 6-8, 2016, Chongqing, China. In case of missing this grand event, I am writing again to extend to you our sincere invitation.

Dear Elsa,

I hope you aren't training Google's spam filter such that I'll be missing any real invitations in the future.

These guys are great. TBH I only ever get the veggie pizza, but it's awesome. We ate once at the restaurant; that is not fancy, prefer getting them delivered :-)

Nice coffee shop. Music was a little annoying: exactly what you heard on the radio in the midwest in about 1984. But mellow and good vegan choices.

I have a new favourite pub in London! Fantastic spaces, locally-sourced food, yet definitely a pub not a restaurant. And the beer is great! I went with the house brand and was very happy.

This place is a post office. It has all the things you need, stamps, boxes, tape, cards etc. for purchase. It's clean. I was there before Christmas, it had two people working hard & professionally, who were familiar and friendly to the regulars, professional and friendly to everyone else despite an insane line of people who came at the last minute when they were meant to close (fortunately we'd come 20 minutes *before* the close.) I think reading the low reviews here tells you exactly how hard it is to work a job like this. I have a lot of respect for government workers.

Beautiful wide open yet cosy space built in 1910. Certainly the best-smelling pub I've ever walked into. The Thai food is fantastic & very authentic (at least as I was tutored by a Thai friend; I've never been to Thailand myself). The only sad thing is that it's a Fuller house, and the Fuller beers are no better even that close to their brewery.

Beautiful old pub & space, sadly most of it is dedicated to food now so the bar areas get very crowded, but still not something to miss if you're in the area.
