Finally! I was waiting for something like this : Table 2 Net - CSV to GEXF

This is really neat, finally a simple tool to convert CSV data to GEXF ready to be ingested by Gephi!

Acting as if one is Already Free: David Graeber’s Political Economy and the Strategic Impasse of the Left

It is here that I think Graeber’s work is most valuable. I want to explore those parts of his thinking critically important to developing a Left that is post-Corbyn, post-Sanders, post-populism in general – but still in the first phase of an epochal pandemic. Particularly in the wake of Joe Biden’s electoral success in the US, in the wake of electoral defeat for Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour and selectoral defeat for Bernie Sanders, a new argument about strategy and tactics is beginning to play out in the English-speaking Left. This debate has only just begun to grapple with what capitalism portends in a world of environmental decay. But the questions Graeber foregrounded, most notably on political economy, can provide important signposts. I don’t claim that this is the only reading possible of Graeber’s work. But I do argue that the questions therein, and at least some of his answers, should be more central to the Left.

How Facebook, Twitter and other data troves are revolutionizing social science

Ricardo

« Les classes dominantes ont financé les options politiques xénophobes, climato-négationnistes et sexistes qui ont conduit aux votes dits populistes »

"Avec le libertarianisme autoritaire, la perspective qui se dessine, c’est celle d’une remise en cause du socle minimal de droits sociaux et environnementaux nécessaires pour la vie normale des populations qui commence à être remis en cause dans les pays du Nord."
