not the ﬁrst priority: ▸ COVID-19 data sources suffer from a lack of standardization, often cannot be accessed. ▸ COVID-19 “dashboards” are all the rage, but there are frequent issues across jurisdictions with how similar metrics are being communicated. ▸ This has increased demand for my COVID tracking project. ▸ Iterating on analyses is not something we always get to do, but it is tremendously gratifying. ▸ Open data and science are also about community and communication.
