Hi and thanks for stopping by. My name is Amanda Rush, and I'm building a homepage like it's 1999. I'm doing this for a number of reasons. First, I want to own all my content and have control over it, and to that end I am constantly updating this site so that it contains as much of my data as possible from any silo I may have an account on. I decided to start doing this when I finally got tired of all the curated timeline nonsense and the social media design element that encourages us to be horrible to each other online for clicks. I'm not saying you have to join me but of course I'd love it if you jumped ship and joined the indieweb with me. In the meantime, enjoy my content.

Read A thread by Marc Lipsitch (Twitter)

Tonight #DeborahBirx stated that models anticipating large-scale transmission of COVID-19 do not match reality on the ground. Our modeling (done by
based on work with
and me) is one of the models she is talking about.

A must-read Twitter thread from Marc Lipsitch, Director of Harvard’s Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics. He (politely) demolishes Dr. Birx’s “rosy scenario,” and also points out “we remain woefully behind on testing capacity” and “test reagents, swabs, PPE remain in short supply.”
