This is a list of things that, once the Covid-19 thing is handled, are probably never going back. In no particular order. Buying toilet paper or other paper goods in a physical store. In-person house closings. Offices full of people who could work for home / viewing working from home as a perk. Non-essential work […]
Col. John Boyd’s “Organic Design for Command & Control” came up in conversation today so I figured I would put my copy up and make it available. As usual I’ll probably add to this over time.

This page is a collection of the different aspects of that project.

This article is part of the Syndromic Surveillance and Covid-19 collection on Thoughtfaucet. This document outlines the thinking behind my initial chart, trying to see if there was anything to the idea that Influenza-like Illness could be used to spot Covid-19 in NYC. A thread on Twitter by Farzad Mostashari mentioned EpiQuery, a data collection […]
