"As it became clear Saturday evening that Sen. Bernie Sanders would run away with the Nevada caucus and secure his position as the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential primary, MSNBC anchors and contributors lashed out at the senator and his supporters in bizarre and sometimes hysterical fashion, descending into what one observer could only describe as a 'full-blown freakout'."

"Earlier in the Democratic primary process, the Comcast-owned network was notorious for ignoring the senator from Vermont, and covering him negatively when it covered him at all."

"But Saturday marked a clear escalation in hostility from MSNBC‘s on-air personalities as Sanders’ diverse coalition of supporters propelled him to a landslide victory in Nevada, the third consecutive state in which the senator has won the popular vote."

Mostly uniformed notes on Coronavirus, Wuhan, China, and the online response


I'm not a sinologist, sinophile, nor antisionist. I'm not an expert on China, or epidemics, or eastern-region politics. But I watch and observe, and occasionally comment. This story is an interesting one, but my observations are largely speculation, exceptions generally being cited or referenced.

There are two elements of this story I'm finding fascinating, both involving viral propogation. One is biological, the other epistemic.

The Plague


It's been about nine days since I posted my exponential growth 2019 nCoV observation, followed (in comments) by predictions that containment efforts begun arond 22 Jan would start showing clear evidence in new case data by early February, and that mortality should start falling by the 15th - 22nd, another 2-3 weeks out.

The first is bearing out, the second may be beating my initial projection. Both of these trends are encouraging.

I'll emphasise: I'm not a medical professional or epidemiologist. I read and study a lot, I've watched earlier outbreaks, and I've a fairly strong stats and data background which informs views of data. But really: I'm just some guy in a cat mask making guesses on the Internet.

That said:

* Signs are encouraging.
* The risk remains very real. We'll likely see somewhere in the neighbourhood of 100,000 cases (plus or minus a factor of 2) and 1,000 or so deaths (same). I think it's unlikley we'll see grossly more, say 10x, that.
* Quarantine, containment, education, public awareness, travel and commerce restrictions, and (within pandemic regions) frequent decontamination, are very much the order of the day.
* Effective treatments are few and will probably not emerge before the epidemic peaks or subsides. Mostly health professionals are limited to treating symptoms and secondary infections, with mixed effectiveness.
* There may be some nontraditional treatments or precautions which prove effective. No, I'm not talking crystals or Goop, but potential practices to reduce particle spread or make the virus less comfortable within hosts. Salt-impregnated masks have been mentioned favourably. I could think of other possible approaches, I won't bother mentioning them simply as rumour and misinformation spreading is already more than problematic.
* Given limited treatment, beds, an diagnostic kits, I'd argue that conclusively testing every presenting case is not a useful use of resources. Confirming infections among medical personnel is, but otherwise, triaging serious cases in to care, and directing less-serious cases to self-quarantine seems reasonable. We're talking city-wide, province-wide, and country-wide control where populations number to 10 million, 100 million, and 1 billion, respectively. This is a very large-scale problem. The goal is containment and management, not acute treatment of every individual case.
* Limitations on public knowledge of disease, germ theory, medical capabilities and limitations, and public health methods, is a challenge here. China's large population includes a very large undereducated population. (Though its educated population dwarfs that of any other country on Earth, possibly excepting India.)
* Failure to continue effective management could change all of this. The goal is to work effectively.

Media and Politics


The media and online response is ... interesting.

I've seen several long YouTube monologues, the first I believe by the individual known as "Brother Mask", another by a civil rights attorney, giving first-hand reports from within Wuhan itself. Many of the reports of conditions seem accurate. Some of the criticisms arising from them ... possibly less so. There have also been numerous posts in various places -- Mastodon and Diaspora, though of course many on Twitter, Reddit and elsewhere.

It's clear that many are seeing this as a propaganda opportunity to be used against the Chinese government. And there are certainly numerous criticisms which are valid.

Given the flood of online propaganda aimed at Western states in recent years, notably by Russia, but also China, generally following a "torrent of distraction" rather than "hose of reality distortion" favoured by Moscow. Seeing this now turned at China is ... interesting and ironic.

I don't consider myself a supporter of China, though I am impressed by the progress it's made most especially in recent decades. China is simply huge, and operates at scales the rest of the world fails to comprehend -- Wuhan is the city of 11 million you'd never heard of until two weeks ago. The country has faced, and does face immense challenges, and whilst not executing perfectly, has succeeded in many ways that deserve recognition. As do its failures. I'm often critical of elements of China's behaviours, both domestically and abroad (Uyghers, Tibet, and elsewhere). China is much like the proverbial Chinese symbol for crisis: opportunity and threat.

The main reason ideologically-driven discussions, debates, or (far more often) screaming matches are so boring is that they're simply so uninformative. The positions are well-established, the participants rarely principled or in good faith, and quite often themselves blinded to realities they'd prefer not to confront.

It's abundantly clear that China grossly mishandled the outbreak of 2019-nCoV, much as it did SARS in 2003, though not managing to cover up the epidemic as long in this instance. The death, or is it martyrdom, of Li Wenliang, is portentious. Unconfirmed reports of 800 million Weibo posts within 2.5 hours of its annoucement. It seems at least possible that changes to central control over information flows may occur, though the legacy of Tienanmen Square still looms large, and information regarding it remains tightly controlled. Chinese partisans have been engaged in petty battles over map definitions within the 2019-2020 Wuhan Coronavirus Outbreak Wikipedia page, as evidenced by the Talk page. Yes, Wikipedia has its conflicts and attempts at manipulation, but they occur in public and are often countered.

China's own meddling with both independent Taiwan and Hong Kong appear to be backfiring badly in terms of trust in the CCP and central government. That seems somewhat just desserts, though not always epistemically valid information.

At the same time, there's what seems strongly to be hay-making by opponents of the government, quite possibly even factions within the CCP battling against each other (my speculation), and quite likely entities or factions within Taiwan and Hong Kong, as well as the usual rabble-rousers, xenophobes, ecouragers of chaos (viz: Stephen Bannon), and general whackadoodles worldwide.

The interesting situation is that China seems to be approaching a point at which neither a closed-down media system, nor a wide open one, is risk-free. The first, had it persisted only a few weeks longer, could have had us talking a bound an epidemic ranging into the millions of cases and tens or hundreds of thousands of deaths, as well as global economic disruptions lasting months (and a likely risk-based reduced exposure to China). The second, while guarding against the "tell the emperor what pleases him" failures of rigid control, also enables the enemies of the emperor to speak freely. It seems all but certain that China will have to move out of its comfort zone here.

Or ... and if this path is chosen, all but certainly with the assistance of all the usual Silicon Valley suspects we've come to know and love ... institute an even more pervasive, flexible, and effective set of internal and external informational firewalls which permit the flow of critically important information whilst somehow managing to disrupt attempts at political opposition.

I don't find the second possibility overly likely from a technical standpoint, but Orwell and Huxley seem to have been winning the War for the Internet so far, and it seems unwise to not give them their nod.

Norbert Wiener, the father of Cybernetics, had a strong experience with information controls during World War II, as he worked on numerous research projects for the US government and military. After the war, his assessment was that the security restrictions on communications hurt the Allied forces more than they helped. For the most part, the enemy was already aware of the research projects, so the spread of information to the enemy was not meaningfully curtailed. But the Allies, working with limited technical and intellectual personnel resources, were hurt more by the duplicate, slowed, and inefficient progress made on the projects due to the communications restrictions.

Whether Wiener's view was accurate or merely his own personal bias, I'm not sure. But China is likely to be debating the same question, if not now, then soon.

I'm often amused by pronouncements of "market psychology". For example:
"Dow plummets 600 points in worst day since August as coronavirus fears grow" [CNBC today]
Does anyone have one shred of evidence, regarding cause-effect/correlation, to support this? Who makes this stuff up??
Why not "Stock markets plummet on fears of Trump remaining in office and from watching the Senate cover up treason?"

“Investigative journalism in danger
Australia has good public media but the concentration of media ownership is one of the highest in the world. It became even more concentrated in July 2018, when Nine Entertainment took over the Fairfax media group. Mainly concerned with business efficiencies and cost-cutting, this new entity resembles Australia’s other media giant, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation. Under the very conservative prime minister, Scott Morrison, the government has abandoned any attempt to regulate the media market. The space left for demanding investigative journalism has also been reduced by the fact that independent investigative reporters and whistleblowers face draconian legislation. Australia adopted one of the toughest defamation laws of the world’s liberal democracies in 2018, while its laws on terrorism and national security make covering these issues almost impossible. At the same time, the migrant detention centres run by government contractors on the islands of Manus and Nauru are in practice inaccessible to journalists and have become news and information black holes.”

Once upon a time...

My first published research was a look at the NY Times vs. the_ NY Post_ comparing how they covered a near-disaster, a crack discovered in the Harrisburg / "Three Mile Island" nuclear plant. The Times cited government team response and status, while the Post had a large picture of a goat which I'll never forget, "Mrs. Louse H-- comforts sick goat". Which provided facts? Aroused fears?

So fast forward to now. The New York Times has a banner headline about impeachment, and the historic proceedings.
Whereas the NY Post featured a critique of Pelosi's wardrobe, calling her "swamp mistress".

Some things change. Apparently the Fox/Murdoch/Post school of "news" headlines and "fact" presentation has not, much.

Who knew? Yet I can't really say I'm surprised. Sad that the choice now is to mock conscientious leaders or focus on serious issues.

‘The Anti-Facebook’: #Wikipedia co-founder launches ad-free #social #media platform

Fed up with #Facebook and #Twitter? If so, Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales hopes you'll join WT:Social, a new social media platform that promises not to run advertisements or sell user data.

WT:Social features a Facebook-like feed on which users can share news or other content. But unlike Facebook, whose algorithms prioritize content that's sponsored or receiving a lot of engagement, WT:Social simply shows new content first.

About 160,000 people have signed up for WT:Social since it launched in October. The platform is free to join, but new users are put on a wait-list, which can be instantly bypassed if you donate money. WT:Social hopes to survive only on donations.
So why isn't he championing #Diaspora* / the #Federation? Hmmm...

Trends in U.S. Adolescents’ media use, 1976–2016: The rise of digital media, the decline of TV, and the (near) demise of print.

Below is an abstract of a study which just came out on media use among teens, across a 40-year period, including a focus on the trends of the past few years. Seems like reading may be an endangered species, along with attention span and focus.

I've researched, lectured, and written extensively (since the 1990's) about the "addictiveness" of Internet, first solo, then fused with all-encompassing "devices", now addictive to the point people cannot bear being detached. (See E.g., http://www.devicedevotion.com)

Researcher/author Larry Rosen presented stats (around the time of this study) showed variations among generations & mini-generations in media/communication preferences. Some (and adults increasingly) prefer instant communication - chat/texting.
Some (boomers, e.g.) watch TV a lot whereas other gens never watch and don't take TV's to dorm rooms these days.
You can get a sense of this (easy reading) at http://www.fenichel.com/pokeme.shtml
~
Here's the new long-term study. (I'd guess the trend has continued exponentially from 2016 through today)

Digital media use has increased considerably, with the average 12th grader in 2016 spending more than twice as much time online as in 2006, and with time online, texting, and on social media totaling to about 6 hr a day by 2016. Whereas only half of 12th graders visited social media sites almost every day in 2008, 82% did by 2016. At the same time, iGen adolescents in the 2010s spent significantly less time on print media, TV, or movies compared with adolescents in previous decades. The percentage of 12th graders who read a book or a magazine every day declined from 60% in the late 1970s to 16% by 2016, and 8th graders spent almost an hour less time watching TV in 2016 compared with the early 1990s. Trends were fairly uniform across gender, race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. The rapid adoption of digital media since the 2000s has displaced the consumption of legacy media.

Trump Fatigue?


Not sure what to make of Dan Rather v.2019, but in any event, he has an opinion too, about "Trump Fatigue", and for worse or more worse, Trump has definitely been in the news and in the comedy skits and horror stories and real-world disasters, 24/7. If it's good it's because he's the most stable genius since Einstein invented the wheel, believe him, terrific guy.... Anything bad? Hillary did it!

OK, so: I think Rather is right to talk about how the "fatigue" is sort of a blunt weapon which can be part of any "strategy", but Trump of course is incapable of anything like a "strategy" beyond "Feed Me... Love Me.... Tell me how smart I am... send me love letters."

But I don't think we should ever speak of the human being Trump - the shell of Hell. It's just so persistent! Meanwhile...
It is his handlers, sycophants and parasites who fuel his vitriol, enabling him, translating & justifying his sub-human tweets & infantile acts into "what he meant is.." Executive functioning (like dealing with facts or logic) is supported by staff while feeding his delusions via flattery and Fox (and mutual friends). It's all good theater after all, reality TV. How's it working? "Terrific. You wouldn't believe it..."

That said, here's Dan Rather. It's very short, only a few paragraphs, on Reader Supported News. There are only two comments now, but I think they fairly well cover the spectrum of opinion & reaction.

Besides, nobody has any ability to focus today, TMI constantly disrupts thinking and memory, and in the end, facts are fantasy.... Eh?

Why such a vulnerable populace? Ongoing PTSD in the U.S. since the last election and with every new day getting lower than the last prior record for evil, vindictive destructiveness, from deep in the bowels of swampy crime and corruption "like you've never seen"!

On a positive, hopeful note, I do agree with Rather that (as in Woodstock 50 yrs ago) "we need to feed each other". Resist. Or perish.

Tell HN: Social media strike proposed for July 4-5 by Wikipedia co-founder


"Humanity has been contemptuously used by vast digital empires," says my new "Declaration of Digital Independence" (https://larrysanger.org/2019/06/declaration-of-digital-indep...), which you can sign. So I'm calling a massive social media strike (https://larrysanger.org/2019/06/social-media-strike/) for July 4-5 to raise awareness of the possibility of decentralizing social media, which in my experience is wildly popular whenever proposed.

Read the FAQ (https://larrysanger.org/2019/06/faq-about-the-project-to-dec...) and use some collected resources (https://larrysanger.org/2019/06/socialmediastrike-resources/) to learn and spread the word far and wide. Look for lots of news about this soon. And get ready! Maybe we can make a long-held geek dream finally come true.
