#Lawyers #LawStudents #FediLaw if you haven't noticed yet, there's a #Netflix show titled "Pepsi, Where's My Jet" based on that commercial we all read about in 1L contract law and/or saw on TV in the 90s, and I'm enjoying every single second of it.

Actually, it's hilarious that the most Stanford guy in the world tried to get the Cal football stadium named after his shitty ponzi scheme (which then promptly collapsed)

It's almost like he *knew*


Two Chicago economist on a walk:

"Was that two hydrogen atoms I just saw?"

"No, if it was, they would have already fused into a helium atom"

New study: "Between 2018 and 2021, the excess death rate for Republican voters [from #COVID19] was 5.4 percentage points, or 76 percent higher, than that of registered Democrats. The majority of the difference, though, was concentrated after the introduction of COVID-19 #vaccines: after vaccines became available, the death rate gap between #Republicans and #Democrats widened from 1.6 percentage points to 10.4 percentage points."


US: Nearly nine-in-ten Black adults say policing (87%), the courts and judicial process (86%), and the prison system (86%) require major changes or need to be completely rebuilt for Black people to be treated fairly.

Frantically, you open ChatGPT.


Kinda disappointed nobody's troll-sued the RNC to take Trump off the ballot on 22nd Amendment grounds yet

There is an effort underway to reframe work that attempts to address harmful disinformation — even work specifically aimed at mitigating malign foreign disinformation — as "censorship". If we accept that frame, we will enable the dismantling of the very nascent defenses that we've built over the past ~6 years, as our society has begun to realize the vulnerabilities that emerge from the intersection of technology, human behavior, and influence operations.

What an absolutely garbage week so here is my cat who was rescued from a dumpster as a baby and who bogarts my lap, my laptop, and every soft thing in the house

The original sin of both tech boosterism and tech criticism is to focus unduly on what a given technology *does*, without regard to who it does it *to* and who it does it *for*. When it comes to technology's effect on our daily lives, the social arrangements matter much more than the feature-sets.


What's the weirdest law school final exam you've ever heard of or taken? When I started teaching con law at NIU, my students told me that one of the professors who used to teach the class before me just had students write down as much of the Constitution as they could from memory. I kid you not...that was their final exam and that's how I unexpectedly starting teaching con law my very first year I was there. #law #lawprofs #lawschool #lawfedi @law

For no particular reason today may be a good day for you to listen to Brandi Collins-Dexter on Kanye West and her book, Black Skinhead, and to buy a copy. https://techpolicy.press/black-skinhead-a-conversation-with-brandi-collins-dexter/

And now for a classic, the 30th-anniversary new edition of Bonnie Honig's Political Theory and the Displacement of Politics. This is a text worth returning to: https://www.cornellpress.cornell.edu/book/9781501768446/political-theory-and-the-displacement-of-politics/#bookTabs=1

This #FollowFriday, I thought I would start a list of @genderpolitics academics, so you can easily find people to follow. Here's how it works:

1. Add your information the Google Doc (link below)

2. Don't add someone else without their permission, but feel free to share with friends and colleagues

3. Manually or automatically follow people from the list - instructions in the document!

@politicalscience @communicationscholars #polisci #gender

I'm hiring a predoc!! Please circulate to anyone who might be interested.

I'm particularly keen for predocs to play a role in widening, not narrowing, the pipeline for academia. So even if your background is a bit non traditional, do consider applying!
