Shocker, but a lot of reading the past few weeks has been centered around COVID-19. Only sharing things I really liked b/c otherwise this would be a clusterfuck.
Outbreak, an interactive disease simulator by Kevin Simler

Sequoia ‘Black Swan’ memo could steer companies off of the COVID-19 cliff, excellent takedown of some dangerously short-sighted Silicon Valley nonsense
Recommend The Missing Ring as a fun way to pass the time. Mystery interactive fiction!
General update: Paul & I are on voluntary lock-down. We are both working from home, not seeing any humans other than each other. We probably won't be going anywhere for a few weeks based on our current supply levels.
To pass the time, I've been:
- Playing Untitled Goose Game
- Running virtual board game nights
- Watching RuPaul's Drag Race
- Having virtual movie nights
- Planting seeds in my garden
- Virtual writing groups
- Finishing various house projects (Assembling a fancy microphone!)
- Deep cleaning
Writing has been challenging to get to, but satisfying once I'm doing it. The garden, on the other hand, is a seemingly endless source of peace.
