Really good (Dutch) thread on covid-19 statistics collection methods (+ implicit assumptions) twitter.com/mzelst/status/1305

Lots of news on covod-19, but what is underreported in my opinion: infections are hitting older age groups again. Nice dataviz (heatmap) on twitter

real world code: you do a lot of rituals with types for the compiler, and in the end a wrong password leads to an io exception...

Local news: An article on the ban of the usage of glyphosate to kill all plants (before re-sowing) on ground leased from the municipality that focuses on the impact to farmers, who need it to 'grow nice pasture'/create ecological deserts.

You can also view it as (an example of the) functions as a service security model. Where this one is sharing worker processes between tenants instead of routing requests to a single instance.

Good read on the security & spectre mitigations (v8 isolates, no native code, limiting API surface that provides timing, isolating workers with high cpu usage) used for cloudflare workers blog.cloudflare.com/mitigating

Three years late in finding it but there's a good/very clear blogpost on neural network noise reduction by Xiph/Mozilla at jmvalin.ca/demo/rnnoise/

Usually when I plot something and last samples are (near) zero, I think the dataset is incomplete for recent samples. But here? No: Not noise, signal, COVID19.

Also the amount of Netflix traffic from local caches dropped (46% during lockdown, 67%) before. Hypothesis: Different distribution of content consumption by viewers than before lockdown?

Nice visualisations in a report on the effect of COVID19 on internet traffic at the application level. Reports a large increase in bandwith usage (known), extremely large increase in video conferencing (gut feeling, now based on data) storage.googleapis.com/site-me

It's pervasive. Words have meaning, that you may not get. And some interviews make you realise – more than others – how close you've been to it. This one did that for me: volkskrant.nl/sport/terrance-p

This friday I'm participating in a live demo of the setup of RPKI from scratch. If you are interested (or want to see how easy it is to improve routing security): facebook.com/events/1839723463

So... were there 0 or 4 images available? One view , two ways of filtering...

A good (but slightly unfortunate) use for a stacked bar chart: Show totals & distribution of total.

Wondering whether it was a concious choice to use raw numbers (c.f. proportional numbers) for this map. Since I do not know the population size of European countries by heart, with proportional data I would be unable to estimate the totals.

Black out tuesday. Wondering about the selection criteria for the screen takeover.

twitter.com/N_Waters89/status/ - posting this without checking whether the Bellingcat reporter really reported 92 incidents of police violence agains journalists…

In deniseyu.io/2020/05/23/habits- (via HN), communicating generously is the one I like most to apply/when it is applied.

"assume your peer is a competent, intelligent, reasonable person who is asking a question because they’re lacking context, that they’ve already attempted to procure on their own."

GitHub published a deep dive on a golang bug. Much more interesting than the java things I deal with for work. What overlaps? The usage of application performance metrics. github.blog/2020-05-20-three-b
