We need to push for more #coronavirus transparency. 4 months into the pandemic, there still seem to be disagreements about data and no clear picture. The Shutdowns are not a solution, we need Data to move forward!
What does the future hold for Biotech? After (and If!) this pandemic, are we going to invest heavily in biomedicine to ensure that this doesn't happen again, for any infection, or are we going to go back to life as usual? The crisis proves way too costly to dismiss future threats. Are we going to see investment in biowarfare defense? After all, covid-19 is bioterrorism. by aliens
What's going on with Coronavirus stats. We are now at 4 months of the pandemic and there are still no statistics on the prevalence of the disease on the general population. If this is such a crucial parameter in models, how come there arent WHO teams around the world sampling random populations? World is blindly moving forward not knowing how to proceed.
Social media broke the internet. Its the ephemerality more than addictiveness. people need to post multiple times a day to stay relevant, or else their content is practically lost. And then they need to resurface their stuff from the past because people just don't see it.
Social media prides on being faster than forums of the past, but we got to wonder whether that's true. a lot of content is recycled in 100 different media, which creates a sense of velocity that is fake. 1000 people scrolling their feeds at 10 posts / hour are not seeing more information than 1000 people browsing 1 forum per day. SM is just fooling them that they get novelty , when they really get slightly colored versions of the same stuff

The novel virus epidemic is forcing workers to consider remote work and rethink they way they work. Remote work is is also making the knowledge economy immune to the effect of the virus. Expect big changes after the epidemic. The status quo of office work in overpriced cities is going to receive a major overhaul.
This benefits most the tech communities outside SV, which has turned to a bubble of its own making
It's not just that google is filled with spam, twitter is filled with fake activism, facebook is filled with self promoting selfrighteousness. It's that reddit is also chock full of outrage. Conversation is over, nobody 's listening, everyone wants to type.
So, where do we go from here? The success of group chats and group discussions shows the way. As others have discussed, the success of WhatsApp groups is a testament to that, ditto for the success of facebook groups. A smaller , curated audience can be representative of the population at large without being a mob.
Civil discussion is on its way back. Except, it will not be public.
