1/ Get rid of complex, traditional backend servers while building your #websites.

🐢Slow loading times

🔒Security vulnerabilities

3/ The Jamstack is a way of building web applications that utilizes modern tools and technologies based on #JavaScript, #APIs, and Markdown (J.A.M. stack), in order to decouple the #frontend from the #backend

"#Emergence, #SelfOrganization, & #Complexity"

🧵 In today's SFI Seminar, Visiting Scholar @cgershen presents the second in his series of talks on core concepts in #ComplexSystems science, streaming now:

"In high school #physics class you are taught that with the initial conditions of a system, you can predict its future states. In #complexity, this is not means #reductionism is not appropriate, #Platonism is not appropriate..."
- @cgershen
"You can see a layer of circuits computing something. What is it computing? Itself. In a 248x248 array, you can program the #GameOfLife inside the game of life. Computers allow us to explore #Complexity, and it's no surprise complexity became a science in the 1980s."

काही महिने पुण्यात राहण्याचा योग आला. खरंच पदरी थोडंतरी 'पुण्य' असल्याशिवाय 'पुण्यनगरीत' प्रवेश मिळत नाही. हे वाक्य म्हणजे पुणेकरांबद्दल पुढं जे काही बोलणार आहे त्याआधी त्यांना खुश करण्याचा 'असफल' प्रयत्न आहे.
असफल एवढ्यासाठीच की पुणेकरांना तुमच्या स्तुती किंवा टीकेनं फरक पडत नाही. म्हणजे शुद्ध मराठीत चाटु लोकांना पुणेकर भाव देत नाहीत. उर्वरीत महाराष्ट्रातल्या लोकांनी पुणेकरांवर  कितीही विनोद करावेत पण पुणेकरांना राग येत नाही. कारण ते बाजारातून जाणाऱ्या त्या निर्विकार हत्तीप्रमाणे आहेत
ज्याला भुंकणाऱ्या कुत्र्यांकडं  लक्ष देण्यात रस नाही. याचा अर्थ त्यांना अजिबात राग येत नाही असं नाही. कारण एकदा एका पुणेकरानं 'तुम्ही सांगली, सातारा, कोल्हापूरचे लोक! तुम्हाला जर एवढाच प्रॉब्लेम आहे पुण्याचा तर इथं नोकरीसाठी का येता?' असा चारचौघात माझा उद्धार केला होता.

"I never check Google Analytics because reports are always wrong - most of my sales are shown as DIRECT or REFERRAL, and it doesn't help me."

This thread is for you if you are a #Shopify merchant who lost faith in Google Analytics' credibility on your sales data.
The basics of #traffic

Understanding where your traffic comes from will help you make sense of your organic traffic and the outcomes of your marketing efforts. Here are the two common traffic #attributions that, if not configured correctly, might mess up your sales data.
Direct traffic: Users enter your shop by typing your URL into a browser.

Common DT problems:
-The cross-domain tracking is not set correctly.
-Unnecessary #redirections
-Not having proper #UTM parameters on your Facebook Ads.
-The #GA4 pixel is installed on your website twice.

I promise a thread 🧵when the paper gets accepted. It's about the thermodynamics of traffic flow near the critical density.

Next up is to show that the entropy of an urban network is the travel time!

The paper below by @jianxi_gao @LouisShekhtman and others reveals macroscopic emergent behavior in the Beijing urban network consistent with self-organized criticality. This changes everything.…

1/ Going to #Kyiv first time since 20 Feb 2022.

#Ukraine will never be the same as before #Russia full scale #war, so during this comeback trip, I will share my impressions about dramatic and subtle changes that I see on every corner.

Join me on this journey in this thread!
2/ First hours of drive, we’re on a very good, European quality, yet unfinished, highway. New roads across the country was perhaps the last ambitious pre-war project by president #Zelenskyy.
It’s hard to grasp that #Ukraine will have to start from scratch once the #war is over.
3/ #Vinnytsia region central Ukraine. Russia attacked it with rockets just last night, but I see a granny and a little boy outside, painting their fence as we’re driving by.

Can’t stop to ask about their views on the future, but it’s obvious they see one.

(1) NEW: How bad are structural issues with the T.R. Bridge? It isn't just the public impacted by emergency repairs. STATter911 has learned both @ArlingtonVaFD & @dcfireems are restricting how fire apparatus can access the bridge for emergencies. (more) #vatraffic #dctraffic Image
(2) @ArlingtonVaFD confirms it's following the lead of @dcfireems which limits speeds to a maximum of 25 mph, prohibits fire apparatus from parking side-by-side, keeps apparatus at least 30 feet from each other & 30 feet from open bridge joints. (more) Image
(3) @dcfireems also makes it clear that heavier pieces of fire apparatus like Tower 3 and the department's foam units aren't to use the T.R. Bridge "under any circumstances." #firefighters #traffic Image

1. Hello all! @FantomFDN made a presentation on UN, for ITU (International Telecommunication Union), and this is just a guess but it was also probably about smart cities.

This is going to be a thread about how this can work in real life for traffic! Let's start!

$ftm Image
2. People living in big cities know that traffic is a huge problem. When there is an intersection, we put traffic signs/lights in order to avoid collusions.

In a 4-leg intersection, there are 32 conflict points. Image
3. The more conflict points there are, the more waiting time in signalized intersection.

But don't forget that traffic lights are just a communication language for the drivers, and the language has only 3 sentences.

This is a plot of the daily reported #COVID19 (c)ases (light blue), (h)ospitalizations (light orange), and (f)atalities (light red) in #Switzerland. In addition, I plotted the cumulative numbers added up over 14 days for (c) and (f) and over 22 days for (h), corresp. dark colors.
What do we learn from the data? The second #COVID19 wave in #Switzerland has reached levels in all indicators (c,h,f) (somewhat) larger than the first wave. The peak daily reported (c)ases are a factor 8.5 times higher than in the first wave.
The peak reported (f)atalities and (h)ospitalizations per day are 1.5 and 1.25 times higher than in the first wave. Both likely have not reached their maximum yet. Also (h) data comes in with a delay of up to 7 days from the current date, while for (c) and (f) it is ~3 days.

Last Saturday, @souvikdg and @hallidude chatted about #TechnicalSEO on the #ContentWeb series. Here’s a summary of takeaways: thread (1/12)
@souvikdg @hallidude Everyone wants to rank high on Google. Rarely do people care to understand how things work. Most want a quick fix. Hence SEO is often sold like Snake Oil. It may work. It may not work. And sometimes it may seem to work and then you’re busted for trying out evil tricks. (2/12)
@souvikdg @hallidude #Search engines are #website #aggregators, just like the food delivery aggregators who try to list every restaurant around us. But they also want to ensure that customers have a good experience. So they’ll prefer to recommend restaurants that offer great food and service. (3/12)

On why we need to increase investments in #roads: Our report, Infrastructure Priorities for Job Creation in India, finds that investing in roads has the largest impact on employment generation for agro-allied and services firms. ( (1/3) Image
The report also found that poor quality of roads are a major hindrance to businesses, as reported by 84% of industrial firms, 64.5% of services firms and 61.4% of agro-allied firms. (2/3) Image
Our working paper on Mumbai's #congestion finds that long commutes are eradicating the economic productivity of India's financial capital. Mumbaikars waste 11 days a year stuck in #traffic. Congestion also has high environmental costs. ( (3/3) Image

Between 1993 & 2017, total freeway lane-miles in the 100 largest U.S. metro areas increased by 42% (31% more than the population growth of 32%). So, free-flow on highways resulted, right, DOTs? Wrong: congestion skyrocketed by 144% (4.5X higher than the population growth).

And yes: 42% is 31% higher than 32%. Errors with percentages, especially regarding #elections, are made constantly. OK, back to crushing the “building your way out of congestion” logic: #Nashville’s traffic delay increased by 329%, or ~5.5X the % increase in lane-miles added. 3/7

As I journey back to #Lagos, the nightmare of #traffic dawn on me again. Trying to seek solution instead of complain, I noticed the major reoccurring cause of traffic is bottleneck across junctions/turning, our junctions/turning are not well planned. #FERMA @tundefashola @nitpng
I studied #URP & one of the fundamentals of #TransportationPlanning is to avoid reduce the number junctions/turning especially along major transport corridor hence the need for service lane.@tundefashola @nitpng @Gidi_Traffic @trafficbutter @EniadeYomi @Mz_dholarike @abiolanoble
Since it's almost impossible to have reduced turnings and service lane on all transport corridors, I strongly feel the need to expand the U-turning points should be considered. It's the highest causing factor for traffic. @tundefashola
