The democratic rebellion against the fascist regime in Belarus is about two months old now.

People still protest every Sunday, still in impressivly large numbers.
ten thousands of people are detained, several have succumbed to their torture wounds.

Several sources to follow the resistance:

New Contrapoints video is out! :3

"I appreciate that you..."

"It's a plastic bag. Help."

I really like this heat map visualisation that shows how infections move through age groups over time. France (positivity Test Rate) v Berlin ( 7 day incidence per 100k pop). So ignore the numbers, but the visualisation still works. - can we have this too?

OMG - es ist alles wahr! Schmeißt die Datenautobahn weg - Daten sind das neue Glitzer!


Hot take - Data is not the new oil. Data is the new glitter:

- Lures humans in with its shininess
- Very easy to accumulate
- Found in places you least likely expect to find it
- Almost impossible to get rid of
- Everyone insists on using it w/o thinking through the consequences

One of the worst crimes of social media, among many, is how algorithmic content presentation assumes people have no interest in individuals, only topics. It's so inhuman!

Why are so many US news anchors screaming at my face like they were wrestling announcers?
This is such a weird cultural habit.

Also: Doing election forecasts like it was a weather map. Wat.
