The 'Texas Paper' is getting sensationalist headlines. Remember:
- D614G is same mutation we've known about since spring & been in media all summer
- It happened in ~Jan & most of Europe & much of US had it
- Great to confirm previous work, but not 'breaking'

Worth noting that the authors of this study sat on 5,000 sequences *all summer* meaning they couldn't be used by other scientists to explore any findings in these sequences. Or to better understand Texas's epidemic during its biggest spike.
The author laments the low sequencing rates of #SARSCoV2:

“I think we need to be doing this pretty aggressively in multiple locations on a real-time basis,” Musser said. “I think it’s shameful that we’re not doing that.”

/It's shameful to sit on sequences that could be public./

My new book is out & open access.🥳

It reviews stereotypical (mis-)conceptions about old age & technology (design), and proposes a methodology for more inclusive and participatory public sector innovation: Co-creation.


Thread on chapters 👇
Introduction: There is an articulated need to engage older citizens in the design of digital services, but a lack of evidence concerning successful participation approaches. This book addresses this gap by reporting from three co-creation projects with older adults @MobileAgeEU
The 2nd chapter reviews dominant discourses about #ageing societies and technological #innovation. It argues that engaging older adults in design processes can reconfigure how and which imaginaries of old age and "successful ageing" are being scripted into technologies.

I've been working on a series of neighbourhood-level #COVID19 #Canada visualizations to track the incidence of the virus in some of Canada’s largest cities. @CoulSim has #Montreal covered, so I started with #Toronto. My progress so far. Thread🧵⬇️
By now, we are all aware of the exponential growth of cases in #Ontario in the last few weeks. This is not restricted to #Toronto, but the city certainly led the pack.
Percent change in 7-day rolling average of cases compared to one week ago:

Ontario: +74.3% 📈 (188.6/day ➡️ 328.7/day)
Toronto: +63.3% 📈 (61.9/day ➡️ 101.0/day)

My Q: Will @librarycongress host an archive of official Congressional social media accounts?
If so, which ones? If not, why?
Will it require an act of Congress for a federal social media archive to be created & hosted @Congressgov @USNatArchives? Context:… ImageImageImage
A: "there is currently not a plan to archive this material. However, the Library does archive Congressional websites & social media content [embedded] on the websites would be included"…

1/ I am reading the UK National Data Strategy. Some great stuff, some concerning stuff, but overall, I wish other countries can do this too in the open. Here is a loose thread of my thoughts while I am reading it. Nice job @la_gaia and team! #NationalDataStrategy
2/ There is something very colonial about the phrasing - "Championing the international flow of data." Data Colonialism is real and the UK doesn't need to champion international data flow, it needs to be collaborative. #NationalDataStrategy
3/ I find it strange that this strategy defines data as information. It can be a single piece of information, but the definition there is confusing data types, information and knowledge. Should be a bit tighter, because this will help others as well later. #NationalDataStrategy

The conversation about #opendata standards made me coin the term “tech wokeness” @Morchickit @anabmap @gemma_scire @mikorulez @SilvanavF
“Tech wokeness”: using civic tech on behalf of the marginalized, not by the marginalized. Replaces the ends with the means: tech availability & “good” UX are sufficient catalysts for beneficial social change.
It’s technocratic: an unalienable democratic outcome comes from us FOSS’ing this for you. If you complain it’s not inclusive or intersectional then you’re inserting politics into something that promises to remove any need for politics

Our new paper, out now in @Eurosurveillanc, looks at #COVID19 #SARSCoV2 across Europe…

A major part was reconciling different nomenclatures!

Working with @GISAID & @AineToole, we created a handy reference between @nextstrain, Pangolin & GISAID!

Using ~39,000 seqs from 35 WHO Europe countries (up to 10 Jul), we found an avg of 40 days btwn sample collection & GISAID submission, with 8% published in 2 wks!

We can breakdown timing by country (worth viewing in manuscript - Supp Fig 2!)

When we look at clades/lineages over time in Europe, we see 19A, L/V/O, A (Nextstrain, GISAID, Pangolin) dominating initially, concordant w early intros from Asia. However, must be mindful of small # samples from early epidemic & poss bias in who was tested (travellers)

Réduire par rapport à quoi ? Le numérique Fr est déjà parmi les plus vertueux au monde (mais bon, pour cela, encore faut-il y mettre les pieds) avec une vraie compétence en matière (i) de conception & exploitation de DataCenters (ii) de box, éléments de réseau à long cycle de vie
La France se distingue en effet par une meilleure maitrise des opérateurs sur la box, allant jusqu’au sourcing des composants, une chaine logistique (désolé, mais le politique Fr ayant tué l’industrie manufacturière, l'Asie reste incontournable) privilégiant le ferroviaire
Le choix des opérateurs Fr consistant à considérer la box comme un élément du réseau permet un bien meilleur cycle de vie (Encore vaillante, la Freebox Révolution s’apprête à entrer dans sa 11eme année), avec recyclage / reconditionnement des box

Em Janeiro o @Dadoscope1 publicou achados sobre dados abertos de pensionistas referentes a novembro e dezembro de 2018.
Agora com os novos dados conquistados e tratados pela @_fiquemsabendo é possível expandir dois meses para duas décadas de análises. Segue 🧶

Em janeiro constatamos que filhas solteiras adultas recebiam pensões em valores maiores do que outras classes de filhas. No total acumulado desde 1994 isso se solidifica. ImageImage
Observando por faixas etárias vemos que mulheres solteiras saudáveis com mais de 50 anos representam a maior quantidade das classes analisadas. Image
