Made some good progress today. Now, I am done.
Today was filled with a few tasks that I thought would take me hours, and instead took seconds. Not bad.
TBH I've found the housing market data similarly confounding. Pretty new to housing & homelessness data sources, but it always seems that the published stats are the easy-to-count kind not the useful-for-policy kind.
I've repeatedly said that the COVID stats we have aren't ideal. Case counts aren't fair to large states; vaccine counts aren't fair to small ones. And there's little compariative data (until lately).
Effective democracy requires feedback loops. Good feedback requires good data.
Comparative data is really important because it allows people to more effectively judge their local government's response in comparison to other known units.
CA is currently doing very well, so if SD's rates are similar, then I feel confident saying we're doing well here!
Really interesting that San Diego County COVID situation has remained essentially a mirror of the state as a whole (numbers normalized to population obv).
I just finished setting up a Pi-Hole on my network. Pretty cool stuff.
The ads on my TV are finally gone.
California is currently experiencing the lowest per capita case rate of any US state.
This is a huge success. Lowest rate, no fourth wave. /cc @ezraklein

I just made a list of the things I need to do in order to consider my [redacted] app feature compete! It's ~22 items long.
Apparently I'm a lot closer than I thought.
Yesterday I signed out of Twitter on all my devices. Hopefully I can resist signing back in.
I do like to check my mentions, but I think I can forgo that for a while.
"Ya see, Donny here's gonna need another funding round from ya, and if he don't get it, I guess you'll have to pivot to your exit strategy friend, or you're gonna be swimmin' with the fishes."
I want a movie where classic NY mobsters threaten local businesses with Silicon Valley business lingo.
"You keep your nose clean, and I'll follow up with Donny B. And if he don't like what he sees, then uh, I'll circle back and touch base in Q4; if'n you catch my drift."
In the HomeEc classes of the future (if we ever remake them), students need to learn real-world, 21st century skills like how to manage email: using folders and writing filters.
It's a skill that takes 30 minutes to learn and will change their lifes forever.
Did I mention that the Kindle version of my book finally available? Because it is and you should get it.
