My dad always used “nong”. It was quite an extreme swear word for him.

Dear Can we change the waiting music between ads. It’s weirdly 80s/Tron-like.

Jeepers. I’m surprised all these bands/singers are still alive and standing.

Can you please respond to my emails. I've now sent three emails and one web request since 25 August, but no one has responded.

Please keep us updated. I think a daily Twitter journal would be really enlightening. If you’re up to it (although you’ve probably already thought of it), a video journal would be fantastic. Storytelling around this COVID experience is important.

I hope so, but the long tail in epidemics tends to be very long. We will likely hover between 5-15 new cases for months.

It’s the same assessing agency that determines if something is “UnAustralian” and “Politically Correct”.

Models are maps. Not absolute predictions of the future. A visual and musical analogy.

Edinburgh Gardens in North Fitzroy looked a little different to this on the weekend.

gave a good response this morning about the hundreds of variables that are included in the current modelling. I think the journalists were a bit dumbfounded. It didn’t fit into their narrative.

Adrian, what are your thoughts about the epidemiological long tail? In my behavioural change research, we find that as we get lower numbers of the population, it becomes more complex (for a whole range of segmentation reasons). Is this factored into models?

But we (incredibly flawed humans) might be distracted by patterns that suit our particular biases, by hopes that things will go better than expected, and by limited access to detailed data. So models are maps. Not absolute predictions of the future. 4/4

We use probabilities to make some educated guesses about what may happen. We can be reasonably sure about tomorrow, but two months away is a bit more complex. We run through a whole bunch of scenarios, but we aren’t completely sure which one it will be. 3/4

We don’t know how tired we are going to be and/or get distracted and frustrated with the kids in the car. We are hoping that our plans are well founded. We’ve only done this trip or something like it once, and it was a bit different. So we will get some things wrong. 2/4

Models are maps. Not absolute predictions of the future. We are heading out on a very long trip. We’re not sure what the weather is going to be exactly. We don’t know if the roads will be in good condition. We don’t know what the other drivers on the road might do. 1/4
