ICYMI: Social Media

Did you know that ESnet is providing the high-bandwidth network connections that allow scientists to tap into the Office of Science's supercomputing resources for COVID-19 research?
Finished watching my first 2 @SciPyConf videos. Loved the talk by Rollin Thomas from NERSC, plus Fernando Perez, Min Ragan-Kelley, Brian Granger, and the rest of the Project Jupyter team.
