Togelius: The differences between tinkering and research
I appreciate this. I generally find stuff that's tinkered with to be more approachable than stuff that's just good research. Maybe it's a matter of accessibility or not knowing the language of research well enough?

Professor Chai Reviews Madeline Miller's 'Circe'
DALLAS MORNING NEWS -- May-lee Chai's latest book, “Useful Phrases for Immigrants: Stories,” will be published this fall by Blair. She teaches creative writing and literary translation in the Master of Fine Arts program at San Francisco State University. Chai reviewed Madeline Miller’s novel “Circe” for the Dallas Morning News.

“Miller’s re-imagining of the witch Circe from “The Odyssey” makes for an intriguing, feminist adventure novel that is perfectly suited for the #TimesUp moment,” Chai writes. “‘Circe’ is also a smart read that has much to say about the long-term consequences of war and a culture that values violence and conquest over compassion and learning.”

Jewish Contraptions: Professor Johnson Co-Curates Exhibit of Kinetic Commentaries
TABLET -- Over email, the exhibit’s curator, Renny Pritikin, explained that the theme emerged when he and his colleague Mark Dean Johnson of San Francisco State University surveyed more than 100 Jewish California artists. According to Pritikin, among those surveyed, “a large group referred literally or poetically to the idea of the machine, or the contraption. So we went with that as the theme of the show, thinking Rube Goldberg to Bernie Lubell.”

Anthropology Lecturer Jeffrey Schonberg Discusses How Photographers Gain Access to Subjects
NIEMAN STORYBOARD -- Jeff Schonberg is a professor of anthropology and documentary photographer at San Francisco State University. He and his research partner spent 10 years documenting the lives of homeless drug users on the streets of San Francisco. He has also worked on projects involving the illicit drug economy, HIV and youth violence in the neighborhood where he lives in Oakland.

Schonberg tells his students that the same parts of themselves they use to build relationships in other areas of their lives can also be used to earn access. He explains that people sometimes emphasize certain aspects of themselves — age, gender, marital status, common interests, political views and so on — to relate to others whether they realize it or not. For many, finding a baseline common ground is a natural way to engage with new people.

In this series of booklets introducing Slow Culture, we examine the eight eternal human motivations that form the basis of this framework. These motivations manifest themselves differently depending on the time and place, and their trajectories — shown below — trace a broader transformation in collective mood that’s dominating today’s zeitgeist. It’s not the end of the road, but it’s where we are, and Slow Culture will help us fathom what could be next.

To Know Entity Resolution is to Love Entity Resolution
Entity Resolution: Recognizing when two observations relate to the same entity, despite having been described differently. And conversely, recognizing when two observations do not relate to the same entity, despite having been described similarly.

Nice to know that I'm not the only person using "entity resolution" in that way.
