Zvi Mowshowitz: Covid-19 1/12/23: Unexpected Spike in Deaths. Quite a lot of deaths got reported by quite a lot of different states this week. Case numbers did not spike, and instead actively declined. What’s going on? It is right after Christmas and New Years, which means the least reliable reporting of the year, and no one cares much anymore – Indiana and Illinois didn’t bother reporting anything on either front – so the obvious explanation is this is a lot of backlog dumping with the new year....What I am not worried about, given the case numbers, is that this wave is going to get out of hand (more)

aka Feature Flag, see also A/B Test. Feature Toggles (often also refered to as Feature Flags) are a powerful technique, allowing teams to modify system behavior without changing code. They fall into various usage categories, and it's important to take that categorization into account when implementing and managing toggles. Toggles introduce complexity.

Jason Cohen says you should Focus your product messaging on your "perfect customer" (Ideal Customer, User Scenarios). You have to communicate in a picture and a few words. The good news is you have to please only Carol, and you know Carol. You even know she’ll honestly be thrilled to find you. If your ad can’t grab Carol’s attention — your perfect customer — why do you think it will grab anyone else’s attention? If you still say it’s impossible to communicate your message in 5-10 seconds, no one in the world will get your message. (more)
