    1. If we had truly robust standards for electronic data interchange and less anxiety about privacy, these kinds of data could be moved around more freely in a structured format. Of course, there are regional exchanges where they do. The data could also be created in structured format to begin with.

      This does exist. Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR; pronounced 'fire') is an open standard that describes data formats and elements (the 'resources' in the name), as well as an application programming interface (API) for exchanging electronic health records.

    1. Alan McNally 💙. (2021, February 5). Our latest lab data for B.1.1.7 prevalence in Pillar 2 samples, as determined by SGTF. Clearly now plateauing at 80-90%. Which to me suggests there are other lineages as transmissible as B.1.1.7......... Https://t.co/toA0GyVsZz [Tweet]. @alanmcn1. https://twitter.com/alanmcn1/status/1357701944027004929

    1. i feel for for tool builders that are serious about building useful software interoperability can actually be a huge 00:45:22 spoon uh to their success um it'll make easier to acquire users it will make it easier to help users embed your own tool in their workflows um you may be also losing some users but 00:45:34 that's okay i guess because it'll create sustainable pressure to you for you to focus on an audience well and build really really useful services for them and if you do that they also won't leave as easily

      I agree. I think companies that allow their users to take their data and run when they want to just create trust. Gone are the days when users automatically thought companies had their best interests at heart, as compared with current-day surveillance capitalists.

    1. The most common impression is that a developer is someone who is a genius and is able to process massive algorithms in their head in a computer-like way to produce code. This is a misguided idea. Developers are just regular people who have invested their time to learn a programming language and to understand the tools, techniques, nuances, and quirks of the technology they are using to produce results. Any professional job, be it a bricklayer, plumber, or indeed a developer, requires you to learn the tools of the trade to build what people need. A developer, by my definition, is simply someone who creates something out of nothing. A property developer takes a piece of land and produces homes for people to live in. A web developer produces apps or websites from nothing.

    1. Youyang Gu. (2021, May 25). Is containing COVID-19 a requirement for preserving the economy? My analysis suggests: Probably not. In the US, there is no correlation between Covid deaths & changes in unemployment rates. However, blue states are much more likely to have higher increases in unemployment. 🧵 https://t.co/JrikBtawEb [Tweet]. @youyanggu. https://twitter.com/youyanggu/status/1397230156301930497

      I'm so excited to hear an update on this project!

    1. Helen McArdle on Twitter: “The good news: An astonishing 98.2% of over-60s in Scotland are now fully vaccinated. That’s an amazing uptake.

    1. But here's the twist. That edit window is wired to your personal cloud. That's where your words land. Then you syndicate your words back to the site you're posting to.

    1. To get closer to attaining coveted “rich” metadata and ultimately contribute to a “richer” scholarly communication ecosystem, journals first need to have machine-readable metadata that is clean, consistent, and as interoperable as possible.

    1. “The data does not exist independently in the world, nor is it generated spontaneously. Data is constructed by people, from people,” (source 1).
    1. Green and Murphy,Renaissance Rhetoric; Plett,English Renaissance; Middleton,Memory Systems; British Library,Incunabula Short Title Catalogue. Green and Murphy were the primary source. Middleton and Plett, who compiled memorytreatises as a distinct category, allowed me to add extra titles to Green and Murphy’s listings. An Excel file containing the266 early modern treatises graphed here can be emailed upon request.

      Sources of data for this paper. I'd definitely love to get a copy of this Excel file. Might be worth expanding to other languages, countries, and timeperiods as well.

    1. The US Library of Congress has been designated the official registration authority by the ISO and they publish the entire, official, up-to-date list as a trivial to parse text file for free.
    1. Language Range ... matches ... does not match de de, de-CH, de-AT, de-DE, de-1901, de-AT-1901 en, fr-CH
    2. Because ISO code lists were not always free and because they change over time, a key idea was to create a permanent, stable registry for all of the subtags valid in a language tag.

      Why was it not free???

    1. The O’Reilly report suggests that the second-most significant barrier to AI adoption is a lack of quality data, with 18% of respondents saying their organization is only beginning to realize the importance of high-quality data.

      Data quality is secondary in the sense that data can be cleaned but generating test data for training AI is a non-starter.
