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 🤘
Beautiful datavisualisations of elections results at bloomberg https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2020-us-election-results/georgia - should have known about these yesterday!
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
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.
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
I like this New York Times front-page data-visualisation…
Jittered violin plots on nrc.nl (https://www.nrc.nl/nieuws/2020/04/27/waarom-rutte-zo-voorzichtig-is-de-epidemie-laat-zich-lastig-meten-a3996722): Would they have chosen these because they are much more intuitive than boxplots?
I made a quick chart based on stichting NICE data (with pandas/altair/jupyter lab) that I could not find for the Netherlands: cumulative outcome after n days.
…but there is much more potential for visualizations.
A real world example: properly salted hashes that leak (https://www.rtlnieuws.nl/tech/artikel/5095321/covid19-alert-datalek-crypto-digibyte-coronavirus-ministerie-app) can be leaked if users have bad passwords
After 3 clicks I'm no longer sure open-source would give me more confidence in the apps…
SURFnet (in Dutch) on the changes on their network at the start of the network. Traffic patterns inverted, traffic links to consumer isps close to congestion (and traffic being rerouted), research networks perform fine due to being over dimensioned
Besides zoom's end-to-end encryption not actually being end-to-end on my calls, it is not enabled by default.
