#OnThisDay in 1716, the great German polymath Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz died. Read @firstname.lastname@example.org's essay on how Leibniz's early vision of computation and the “combinatorial art” speak to our own age of data, algorithms, and artificial intelligence: https://publicdomainreview.org/2016/11/10/let-us-calculate-leibniz-llull-and-computational-imagination/ #OTD
Finally got round to reading Data Feminism by @email@example.com & @firstname.lastname@example.org cover-to-cover. It's a brilliant book that delivers a compelling argument. If you work with data, regardless of discipline, it's a must read. https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/data-feminism
