As Hurricane Florence bears down, Brigade volunteers have resources for those affected. Text your zipcode for the nearest shelter and more.

I've written extensively about this, e.g. and: 1) Revenue as an ultimate goal isn't effective in stopping Goodhart effects internal to companies 2) Measures should be used without over-strong incentives to game, reducing distortion. cc:

Hey, look at us having a reasoned discussion. Also, yes. Curious to see whether fear or progressive ambition gets more people to share the tool and invite friends; ultimately, that is the real battle.
