The rapid degradation of domain value is a very important fear to consider. Web developers, even now, are faced with something of that anxiety: depending on geographical distribution their income has either flat-lined or is beginning to experience that foreboding little dip.
In previous global crises — such as the 2008 financial crisis and the 2014 Ebola epidemic — the US assumed the role of global leader. But the current US administration has abdicated the job of leader. It has made it very clear that it cares about the greatness of America far more than about the future of humanity.
America's nationalism does not bode well, for it and for the world.
Yuval wrote a book about the death of liberalism, I believe. Need to go read it now.
Such a beautiful, beautiful article. Also, again, brings to mind an argument I've been making for a while. People who tell you facemasks are ineffective are lying. They're simply saying this to prevent you from snagging up all the facemasks and leave nothing for health workers. I understand the need for this, but I do not appreciate the dishonesty of the argument.
See that old fling? Her airways were well-protected by the mask. She only transfers the virus because he touched her physically.
Anyway - I love this article because it ticks the 'narrative' checkbox I've been waiting for. If facts won't do it, let stories.
Some contextual information: @can called out Ben on Twitter for sharing the chloroquine research 'paper', and Ben defended it, but eventually capitulated when it was revealed that the Stanford(?) PhD publisher had had their PhD revoked.
Given that Ben himself fell prey to 'weird' information, this is a thoughtful successor to Zero Trust Information.
I quite like this article, although I felt that the normal distribution graphs were rather arbitrary.
