If machine learning algorithms can be used to predict movie ticket sales imagine what they can do for elections.

In the future, if you want to work with a big studio or a major label, every note in your song, every word in your script, every actor in your show is going to be looked at by machine learning algorithms to make sure your creative decisions are marketable. Now do politics.

When you're improvising in jazz if you count the pulse of the music in half time your nervous system slows down to ballad speed and it feels like the space between beats expands. Meditation does something similar to me when i'm off the cushion. I don't move slower, time does.

Ideology is a helluva a drug. It can make you hear things that were never said and see things that never happened.

The first thing you do in the morning conditions your nervous system for the rest of the day. You don’t get a chance to fully reset again until you sleep. Plugging your nervous system into everyone else’s outrage and chatter is not the Breakfast of Champions.

What’s your take on the research showing that meditation induces sleep spindles and NREMS? Do you think meditation restores hippocampal memory and facilitates learning like a nap? or does it disrupt the benefits of real NREM sleep later at night?

make sure you’re properly grounded before you plug into the electric tremble. tweets are like electric shocks—they’ll jolt your nervous system into mindless reactivity if you’re not careful.

twitter isn’t for persuading people—it’s for inciting them.

electronic information is now a recreational drug. most people use twitter like a bong to try to self-medicate away their pain.

there's nothing i could put in this tweet that would be worth distracting you from whatever you're doing. unless what you're doing is scrolling through tweets.

as long as most people are more or less technologically illiterate, all of the moral and ethical questions about our technology will be answered by the technologists. Is that really what we want?

"In this world which is getting more closely and closely interconnected we have to learn to tolerate each other, we have to learn to put up with the fact that some people say things we don’t like. if we are to live together and not die together we must learn a kind of charity."

The media and universities are used to controlling the narrative by pushing ideas and people they don’t like outside the Overton Window of respectability. That game is over. Ideas and people don’t wither and die out on the fringe anymore, they just form new centres.

In our electronic culture you can’t punish people by kicking them out of the 'mainstream' conversation. The internet doesn’t work that way. The web doesn’t have a centre - it’s all fringe. Mainstream is just another stream.

i've never hearted a single tweet. i'm starting to realize how anti-social that is. kind of like never smiling at people. except when i smile i don’t have to worry about being dry humped by a bunch of algorithms. well, at least for now.
