“That said, I suspect that intentional constraints on scope and scale allow for deeper, more satisfying, and ultimately more useful work. I suspect that a disciplined commitment to messy truths over smooth narratives would also breathe life into technology, journalism, and public health efforts that too frequently paper over the complex, many-voiced nature of the world. And I suspect that treating people like humans who are intrinsically motivated to do useful work in the world, and who deserve genuine care, allows far more people to do their best work without destroying themselves in the process.”
Thank you Covid Tracking Project for all your work. I'm also sad that talking about caring for humans is a thing that needs to be said out loud, but it seems with capitalism constantly pushing, it is and I'm glad it was said so well here in so many ways.
