Greetings critical code scholars!
I share for your consideration these slides from a lightning lecture I gave last October, on how data science would do better if it took lessons from drag. I was inspired by a Wednesday evening visit to Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood. My drag emoji doodle was inspired by a particularly epic ghost look of @themistyviolet 's that night.
I'm an assistant professor of computer science. I had been to drag shows before, but when I left that night I experienced a newfound sense of, I want to work here. Realizing I have no transferable skills to the drag scene, I wondered what exactly was missing from my work life that was so joyfully salient there. I decided it was the honesty.
