Visual Capitalist published an informative infograph showing the different pandemics throughout history with the size scaled to the number of deaths.

R0 - Basic Reproduction Number

The Guardian published an interesting interactive visualisation article describing R0, the basic reproduction number, which is the metric used to measure the contagiousness of a pathogen. Reducing the R0 of Covid-19 is funadamental in preventing exponential infections of the virus and will determine how lockdown restrictions can be lifted.

Berlin based Irish musician Delush released his debut album this week, The Journey To Zero. Delush also has a number of special bundles available on Bandcamp, including a private live stream. Listen, close your eyes and let the silky music sooth your soul in these turbulent times!

DEVS

This week I binged watched the 8 episodes of DEVS. Wow. It is difficult to review DEVS without any spoilers, apart from saying how elegantly filmed and exquisitely scored the mystery thriller is, oh and quantum computing!

My amazing wife Jenn Kirby just released a new avant-pop EP called POPPED to fund materials for the 3D printing of PPE parts she is doing as part of the 3DCrowd.uk network of volunteer 3D printers. The EP is available to purchase as a digital download here.
