July was a pretty busy month for me, the weeks seemed to fly by in a blur. But as I think back, I don’t really have any big updates that seem worthy if a monthly update.

The twitter hack was really interesting to me, the reaction was maybe more interesting through. With people calling for twitter to be better, that critical infrastructure depends on this website and the accountability of a public company. It’s especially troubling when we have a president that uses the platform to inform the public on policy changes and to call other world leaders names.

I redesigned the website to be much smaller and simpler. It now includes hospital data and rate of infection based on positive test results by number of tests given.

I read a few great books this month, mostly focusing on design
