mayhplumb I talk about this a lot

I had an "intellectually rich home life", and it is a huge privilege

wzuidema (and I'm not just saying that because I'm grumpy about the rejection of our single submission -- although I indeed am grumpy: 2 very supportive reviewers given us both a 4.5 were apparently not enough to offset one reviewer dismissing not the work but the paradigm)

wzuidema My twitter feed is full of happy people announcing 2, 3, 4, or even 5 or 6 accepted EMNLP papers. Sincere congratulations to you all -- but zooming out, I'm wondering whether it is a good thing that relatively few labs have become so good at delivering what NLP/ACL reviewers like

eveewing once I read an article about procrastination & it said "people who say they work better under pressure only say that to rationalize their behavior & have no basis for comparison bc they've never felt how it is to work with plenty of time before a deadline"

peterbreuer Das ist nicht zwangsläufig ein Augenproblem und kann auch an der Nase liegen. Um das Problem einzugrenzen, schauen sie bitte einen Kniffel-Würfel an: Sehen Sie mehr als drei Seitenflächen auf einmal, sollten Sie einen Augenarzt konsultieren. Herzlichst, Ihr Dr. med.

VerbingNouns I… really… REALLY really like teaching. This is something I keep forgetting and then re-realising when I get the opportunity to make or revise lesson plans. Something about organising information into bite-sized, ordered chunks? And imagining and patching potential pitfalls?
