Moon over the Empire State Building. http://t.co/DMKjtCvtVg@IBM @WSJ Better to be essential than cool, I agree. I'd love to invite Ginni Rometty to Science House.@brendanjcahill if you replaced the blondes with physicists, entrepreneurs, mathematicians, coders & artists you'd have Science House.@MikeTwomeyETR I covered Indian Point for several years as a journalist. It was fascinating. @rlovingerYou know it's Creative Weekend when you get dressed into pajamas."My family's from an island where the mythological sirens lived. They're the original futurists & their song echos if we listen." @RitaJKing

@rlovinger I wondered what would happen with the license renewal. Did they say why it hasn't been renewed?@rlovinger I've been out of the loop for awhile but some part of my brain still contains the memory and always will. How was the doc?@Geomoji @tedgonder happy to help! @ScienceHouse@austinkleon yes I totally agree with you. You, as an artist, *do* feed people with your work.@austinkleon the context seems to be she's proud of being an artist despite artists being parasites but being a mom is more important.@austinkleon Problematically these messages often lead women to panic and think their lives aren't important if they don't have kids.@austinkleon Lots of women are tired of being treated like mothering is life's *only* worthwhile activity.@austinkleon I am *so* deeply offended by that Maureen McHugh comment about artists being parasites and only moms matter.

One of the best nights of my life was with Derek Walcott and Mark Strand. https://t.co/qDK5HouAKfA brilliant thinker, @cetesse--and one of my favorite people. https://t.co/eMuzjNcRhI@TimeOutNewYork I'd love to invite you to Science House--built by Abraham Lincoln's son & redesigned as a cathedral of imagination!@carolyn_greg I was just talking about an incredible meditation experience I had with SSRS.@mims before GPS I was constantly prepared to start a new life from scratch in any town in which I got lost.@seanmcarroll @JenLucPiquant ...would love to invite you both to @ScienceHouse.@seanmcarroll @JenLucPiquant I'm a huge believer in creative pairs, being half of one myself. Please let me know when you're in NYC...@digiphile unless everything is jammed all the time, won't it be a constant game of cat and mouse?There will always be another camera. https://t.co/QKlMtGLxvx@seanmcarroll All of my questions were answered by a day spent with your blog. You're a great writer. You and @JenLucPiquant!In bed with a cold, I spent yesterday reading @seanmcarroll's spectacular Preposterous Universe blog: http://t.co/lJO0ocQWnC@mikearauz partly because he published in 2013, not decades ago....@sciam "confirmed absent" feels like very strong language. We don't *know.*@nraford exactlyWe should keep looking but, the first word that came to mind is melancholy. https://t.co/x0YiBIM4gX

Love this so much. https://t.co/5w3Ql7py1E@Yet_another_ODE @melissapierce @michael_nielsen thank you all, you made my day :)@michael_nielsen I DM you my email@michael_nielsen why do the probabilities change over time? And *how* can they change over time?@michael_nielsen monkeys typing Shakespeare?@michael_nielsen conceptually familiar with matrix yes@michael_nielsen how do you know when you've discovered or created a Hamiltonian?@michael_nielsen I'm brushing up on entropy a) to understand Jeremy England's work more b) to explore an idea about determinism.@michael_nielsen *very* minimally@evanoneil two of them have already pinged me :)@Yet_another_ODE @melissapierce translate please?@ekbarbarossa problem there is I'd never go back out@michael_nielsen can you tell me what it means?@melissapierce it doesWhen you study entropy: "The time development operator in quantum theory is unitary, because the Hamiltonian is hermitian." Uh-huh.It's *finally* that kind of day! https://t.co/i7elt0VpeJUrban gardener checking in at Science House. #nyc https://t.co/xH3LXfIIZg

@hodgman Don't forget--other people's destinies include how they will react to you being topless, nursing a bottle of dressing.@hodgman It is your destiny, yes. Let me know if you have more questions. It is my destiny to answer. Or not. We'll see.@hodgman Go ahead! Tonight at Science House it was established that entropy will win and determinism rules human behavior.Now would be a good time to come get your zombies, @RichardGarriott. See last tweet :)"I used to build rockets." Former boss when I was futurist at NASA think tank, explaining @elonmusk. http://t.co/ZojKrJ8luH@jrhusney I am so happy for you! @undercurrent @Quirky @Mattel

One of the best things about Sky Guide is that you can see stars hidden on the other side of the planet. http://t.co/uGUN60KOucIf you have kids who love science and FUN, check out the GALXYZ app from @GalxyzLab!@DLeonhardt I've always thought it's more advantageous to focus instead on what *unconventional* wisdom tells us.@tarditi just a little too far, I see we agree on this.@BiancaJagger @LinkedInPulse @lucymarcus @LinkedIn I love that one, Lucy.@wello, thought you might want to see: https://t.co/fGY8tYB3Ae@tarditi at least she didn't go after Ol' Dirty Bastard.
