I spent months working on domain-specific search engines and knowledge discovery apps for biomedicine and eventually figured that synthesizing "insights" or building knowledge graphs by machine-reading the academic literature (papers) is *barely useful* : markusstrasser.org/extractin…

In the face of nearly 800k deaths. Complacency and lack of vision. It’s no surprise that people think the moon landing was fake. Who could believe a country that can’t do simple rapid tests could have gone to the moon 50 years ago?
Jen Psaki somewhat mockingly asks reporter at the White House Daily Press Briefing if the US should be sending out rapid #COVID19 tests to every household. In the UK you can order 1 pack (containing 7 tests) everyday. gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rap…

“Cancellations up, outrage down — model that!“ -@tylercowen on living in a “post-outrage” society. I’d call it “moral stagflation.” The more moral outrage we “print,” the less it buys.
