Author misses the way models work entirely, the larger the entity, the more statistics and averages kick in, and as a result, better model can be built.
If I create another software product I will explicitly and permanently make it unavailable to EU residents.
"The real failure of adblock shaming is that, on the occasions where I've complied, I then rediscover why I use adblock -- and turn it back on immediately."
UBI can help people pay their bills, but poverty is a lot more than a financial problem. The communities where work is drying up are the communities most heavily affected by opioid addiction at the moment. Drugs are expensive--people don't get addicted because they lack money, they get addicted because they feel hopeless or lack a sense of purpose. Maybe government assistance can help hopelessness, but it sure as hell won't give people a sense of purpose.
It going to take a big shift in culture before UBI can really work out.
You are absolutely correct though. Those first few weeks I had no idea what was happening aside from the occasional head-shot.
OK well I'm glad that the scrutiny upon me is the same as every other newcomer.
A lot of the design patterns I used to adore and look at as if they were rare gems in a sea of bad code. Over time my opinions have changed. Many patterns are good, but I don't really like to think of those as patterns.
A pattern implies repetition. Something that you can used each time you have a situation that warrents it. In my opinion, this openly contradicts "Don't repeat yourself".
So I think we should start trading design patterns for simple and well designed languages. No code always beats good code.
Wait, is it not objectively true that the autograph of a famous person tends to add value to the things they sign?
Ebay has a category for Musk-autographed stuff. People post stuff in that category, and sometimes it sells. Are you saying stuff advertised as having been signed by him would be worth more without the signature? :-)
Because someone else will be making billions ... over your back.
I also use zim wiki for not taking.
One of the fastest ways for a restaurant to die off is social media and foodborne illnesses. Only big corporate clients, naming those in the 300+ chain stores would be looking into this technology. My question to you is - do you intend to eventually work down to growing chains and smaller independent restaurants as wel?
While these smaller chains do not have as much money, we are seeing an overall trend towards SaaS solutions in this market. Things like yelp, google, etc are already being heavily used. Do you intend to penetrate this larger but lower revenue market? If so, how would the offering be different at all, in terms of pricing? It seems like right now you are using a quote by quote basis which 100% makes sense.
Regulation. How can I, as a normal end user, trust your reports though? I see you mentioned how you are validating this information, but how can I really trust it? Also, do you intend to notify users based on a specific mile radius of their home/work address (e.g. 25 or 50 miles out). I wouldn't want to get spammed with places I don't go eat out a lot
Do you intend to do any partnerships with Tripadvisor, and or yelp, or google(for reviews) to subadvertise in the same medium? Because that is generally what most people look up when eating at a restaurant if they are picky about what they eat.
Next, what's stopping your company from pulling a yelp? E.g. predatory business 2 business practices, by hiding negative reviews etc. How do you intend to combat this, if at all, or big corporations trying to buy off bad social media if this scales upward?
In addition - do you at any point intend to remove outbreak data past a certain point? E.g. an outbreak 10 years ago at a restaurant might not be relevant today - they might have changed ownership, etc. How do you intend on combating this?
I wonder as well, if you intend on targeting smaller clients eventually (restaurants) would you also be targeting foodtrucks too & or caterers?
What big data analytics did your model use to "predict" chipotle's outbreak? I am curious about case studies.
Did you also at advertise yourself at the chicago NRA show as well. If so, what was the general reception of both small, mid, and potential big clients
Also the USSR had waged labor, commodity production, bosses, and prison camps so it fails to meet several (basically all?) criteria of socialism that many people would claim except for Marxist Leninists (and even Maoists have a lot of disagreement about this).
(Ireland had some problems just after the crunch but a) entirely because they took on a bank they could have let fail and b) they’ve paid that off now.)
