I am relieved to hear doctors in Italy have begun training/using AI to diagnose Covid-19.
It puzzles me that with all the data and technology available to us, we are still so woefully ill-prepared for pandemics; though it is always heartening to see technology being used for more than just profit.
So now that the music industry seems to have lost its sense of coolness so completely,
I'd like to dedicate the following playlist to all you non-beliebers. I know you're out there. "It's better to burn out, than fade away!"
I don't recall exactly when I became obsessed with data, but it was a long time ago. Back when Facebook was still fairly new

I haven't started actually writing here yet because I'm still in the middle of building, but I have written a few short
posts about my volunteer work for friends at Environmental Vision Exchange; a Canadian charity that travels (mostly through Africa) solving
problems. You can find it here: http://evecharity.org/blog
