It’s a good test for how we (people, government, corporations, markets) react to worldwide emergencies. I’m glad people are mostly staying in. If masses go back to “bah, it’s just a flu” and start congregating en masse again, this thing that we may or may not get an immunity to will carry on. Once we know the fullness of its path in time, then maybe relaxing and kicking back and having big parties will be alright. But just two weeks ago, my FB feed was filled with “Just have chicken pox parties like we used to have”.

If you have it, stop watching news. You are the news. You write it. If any friends are telling you you’re gonna die, unfriend.

You might not be that sick, but somebody else out here might get real sick.

I am just studying this abstracted cat draw in 1954 from information theory and data compression and what it represents, so when you said “nerdy abstract” I currently fit the bill :P It’s alright. The reason I’m studying this stuff is so I don’t have to think about negative news for a bit.

 

mid 2000s left, 1954 right. Yandex image search, after showing me a lot of the cat image, started showing me similar but different images and one of the first was this animated gif. I know it’s another plug for yandex image search but I really like how well it handles “similar”.
