Monkeypox is an infectious viral disease that can occur in humans and some other animals.[1] Symptoms include fever, swollen lymph nodes, and a rash that forms blisters and then crusts over.[1] The time from exposure to onset of symptoms ranges from five to twenty-one days.[3][5] The duration of symptoms is typically two to four weeks.[5] There may be mild symptoms, and it may occur without any symptoms being known.[3][17] The classic presentation of fever and muscle pains, followed by swollen glands, with lesions all at the same stage, has not been found to be common to all outbreaks.[1][18] Cases may be severe, especially in children, pregnant women or people with suppressed immune systems. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monkeypox see also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2022_monkeypox_outbreak

Zvi Mowshowitz: Covid-19 8/4/22: Rebound. Another study takes untreated Covid patients who did not get Paxlovid, and finds viral rebound and symptom rebound in 12% and 27% of participants respectively, 10% of the 27% being after all symptoms had gone away. This suggests a strong possibility that all this ‘Paxlovid rebound’ worry is more ‘this is what happens when you are looking for rebounds’ than it is ‘there are a lot of rebounds caused by this (more)

Napier Collyns was at the heart of the small group of planners, economists and forecasters at Shell (which included Pierre Wack, Ted Newland and, later, Peter Schwartz) who invented and pioneered scenario planning.

Kevin Kelly on the Scenius concept. Brian Eno suggested the word to convey the extreme Creativity that groups, places or "scenes" can occasionally generate. His actual definition is: "Scenius stands for the intelligence and the intuition of a whole cultural scene. It is the communal form of the concept of the Genius." Social Network scale? Scenius can erupt almost anywhere, and at different scales: in a corner of a company, in a neighborhood, or in an entire region. (EcoSystem?) (more)

David Chapman: Upgrade your cargo cult for the win. What does it take for an individual to do innovative intellectual work, such as scientific discovery? Mere mastery of methods is not good enough. What does it take for a community or institution to address a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world effectively? Mission statements, structures, principles, and procedures are not good enough. (more)

River Kenna: Behind-No-Scenes. LotR has great examples of one of my favorite genres of photograph: behind the scenes pictures of practical effects...their purpose isn’t to be interesting conversation fodder, their purpose is to add something to a story, to further the goals of the movie... Hanging around the parts of the internet that I do, I often get a feeling like I’m hanging around at a practical effects convention.... There is really-truly-actually magic in the air, you can see it on people’s faces and in everything they present. But… I’m not really seeing many movies being made, so to speak. (more)

Ross Dawson: If you help bring the networks to life… you will create success for yourself. It is of course now abundantly clear that networks are the underlying structure of business and society. (more)
