The scientific consensus has shifted to admitting the possibility COVID-19 is a lab leak. Here’s the most important substack post I’ve written. It's on how deep hidden incentives in science encourage dangerous gain of function research:
"Doodle data was managed by individual PMs and isolated product teams, which worked when we were small but became impossible when you wanted to get a full view of the user, because everyone had different tracking and different tools." @firstname.lastname@example.org
Tired: startups using machine learning to detect cancer in scans with 90% accuracy.

Today we achieved the dream.
Made a function called `missyElliott` that takes a data structure, flips it, and reverses it.
I have ascended.

AYOOOOOO Couple days ago in Shanghai, a scanable QR code was projected in the sky by drones and when scanned allowed people to download a video game.
