Four interesting, tangentially-related things worth checking out:
- Wired article by Adam Rogers on how Singapore built a system that was ready to respond to Covid-19;
- Another Wired article by Ferris Jabr looking at the obviously wrong but overlooked commonly cited statistics about Spanish Flu fatality rates and how they became “standard”;
- A twitter thread from Patrick Wyman about the decline of the Roman Empire and contemporary parallels;
- Another thread from Emily Gorcenski on how to find a location using minimal information and the internet.
