Great thread on statistics memes!
Doing this in an existing repo actually is a communication issue. Happy we finally switched it.
Cleaning up my work inbox that catches error emails. Process threw exceptions in a loop, every exception was an email. This is why you implement a circuit breaker pattern 🤘
Bloomberg actually uses one of the map techniques in the thread by Tufte today (https://twitter.com/EdwardTufte/status/1324770109123121160).
What I'd like to see: Purple american maps at the county level. Show that a large amount of Biden's support comes from outside the large cities
Beautiful datavisualisations of elections results at bloomberg https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2020-us-election-results/georgia - should have known about these yesterday!
Really good (Dutch) thread on covid-19 statistics collection methods (+ implicit assumptions) https://twitter.com/mzelst/status/1305541298619928576
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
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 https://blog.cloudflare.com/mitigating-spectre-and-other-security-threats-the-cloudflare-workers-security-model/
Three years late in finding it but there's a good/very clear blogpost on neural network noise reduction by Xiph/Mozilla at https://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) https://storage.googleapis.com/site-media-prod/meetings/NANOG79/2208/20200601_Labovitz_Effects_Of_Covid-19_v1.pdf
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: https://www.volkskrant.nl/sport/terrance-pieters-over-racisme-in-het-hockey-het-is-klaar-nu-ik-durf-de-confrontatie-aan-te-gaan~bcc4e017/
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): https://www.facebook.com/events/183972346373123/186010836169274/
A good (but slightly unfortunate) use for a stacked bar chart: Show totals & distribution of total.
