Here's a link to the actual #Seattle #CoronaVirus Assessment Network site, and the screenshot explains who's backing it and in what capacity.


This person has a point.

Quick, temporary #FreeRadical policy update:

Effective immediately, medical advice regarding #COVID19 not sourced from legitimate scientific or medical outlets is forbidden content. If you see someone advocating essential oils or colloidal silver or other junk quackery, please report it.

This is not a free speech zone. Misinformation that makes people dead is not “oh well we all have opinions”.

Other #admins, I beg that you please consider a similar policy.

the unpleasant truth is that Seattle house prices will not be overpriced until the mid-millions.

unless salaries crash.

or unless price controls are put in place on real estate.

> To make matters worse, Seattle is a city that's vastly overvalued, which means housing values could crash like never before. When the housing bubble burst in 2007, by 2009, a Seattle house worth $400,000 lost about 25 percent of its value ($100,000). These same houses are now worth about $800,000.


False. Not a bubble.

Estimate that average software engineer & above makes 150K per. 300K per couple. 900K is now conservative house buy.

I am not worried, per se. We have relevant supplies and a few more are ordered.

Later today I plan to take a walk on the beach - I live nearby. I'm getting a bit of a cabin fever.

How you doing, ?

:: cough, cough :: hello from the Puget Sound, epicenter of the CORONA VIRUUUUS.

I have a stupid cough thing. Almost better. Mostly staying in the apartment so as not to cough in public and get Disapproving Looks from the locals.

The deaths continue. A lot of food places are slowing down, I hear. Tech companies have mostly asked employees to WFH.

c19 has many cases in major corps in the city by now.

A lot of sickness hitting the Seattle area suddenly.

Not sure if it's normal random spikes or if covid19 is here and just causing non-pnemonia sickness.

Does anyone know of an offline map app like #OSMAnd+ for desktop GNU/Linux?

my first essay is half formed in my head.

I should write a draft 1.

The thesis is that corporate dashboarding obsessions are effectively equivalent to a debordian Spectable.

'throwaway parsers' is pretty much the sed/awk sweet spot, even though they can't readily support richly structured languages. For those, the easiest I've seen is, honestly, DCGs (in prolog-land)...

Let me say this a different way: if you're shy and retiring, you don't contribute very well. As a senior engineer in an organization, I WANT you to contribute. You are valuable, but if you don't assert yourself, your value in relation to others is diminished.

I will generally coach others if they ask. I have asserted myself to press for assertiveness in others if I've thought it critical enough.
