@VickiBeen however, study confirms what was done, doesn't consider what might have been or might now be done. The apparently straightforward scientific approach of looking at what there is data on, from a political standpoint chooses status quo vs #possibilism. https://t.co/NqeJvm9P8N

@dillonliam @fabulavancouver the commentaries in papers here illustrate a basic problem, from a policy & political standpoint: they're reasoning from a study only of what was done, not what might have been or now be done. https://t.co/9mlh0bd46a @aminawrite @mkomaromyMD @JFinSF @MKushel @hkanzaria @choo_ek

@dillonliam @fabulavancouver @aminawrite @mkomaromyMD @JFinSF @MKushel @hkanzaria @choo_ek Covid-19 homelessness "hotel strategies" enacted have possible but rarely considered alternatives, & many problems in practice, eg as described here https://t.co/EJ4eqXn2ui. Medical outcomes of those helped are only part of evaluative criteria; eg, what % of needy got help? 2/n

@rasmus_kleis a way report-issuers could add helpful journal/peer-review aspects without impairing goals noted eg timeliness, is to publish with a forum context that invites & presents responses: counteract reports' insular tendency. Call it an "open report"? https://t.co/aK8jJTCuKQ #scholcom

So we publish much of our work first as reports. We want them to be timely. We want them to be relevant. We want them to be accessible. (Journal publishing, which is slow, focuses on "contribution to the literature", & relies on specialized jargon, work against these goals.) 6/19

Reading about the housing crisis in Montana this weekend, and man, no matter where you go, NIMBYism is the one, unequivocal constant. This is about Bozeman, but it could just as easily have been written about SF or Palo Alto. https://t.co/Y1Ykq6y6Uq

@jmartNYT @AlecMacGillis @Starbucks also/or, what are possible forms of 'newspaper' that'd make business, social sense to Starbucks and customers? Perhaps one: semi-automatically & uniquely assemble array of local outlets/platforms incl local govt, nhood associations, writers, influencers, as early coffeehouses did https://t.co/ctL8NByfVi https://t.co/TLsmeJmbzo

@SonjaTrauss here for that. "Il n’y a pas de hors-texte": there is no outside-text, ie unnumbered page (hors-texte) in the larger book of culture & society. Related, arguably, to the idea that there is (or should not be) no person outside citizenship, or outside city (suburban). #horstexte https://t.co/kSHA4m9A86

@ananyaUCLA @MBridegam @abolishurbanism also, so many months later, we still see little willingness to consider alternatives, or critique issues in hotel rental+acquisition strategy, or consider how they may have and are undermining it. Largely, conceptually, we are all still "prisoners here, of our own device" https://t.co/KAqa33Moym

@alfred_twu @rocks_lab @RottenInDenmark @eean @SonjaTrauss @NGryphon @mattyglesias maybe the joy of being part of a Great Chain of Being, a great long river of people and building? You never know. That Soviet schoolchild dreamed of creating this if given a magic wand, and most people seem to like e.g. the Royal Crescent, in Bath. https://t.co/wgQP5g361S https://t.co/jZ1EFzIGmS
