I'm getting a lot of DMs about whether I'll be at miami.

I'm sorry guys I keep applying but the Australian govt won't let me out

@stephanlivera Out of curiosity, is the rule that they won't let you out, or they won't let you back in again if you leave? Both are terrible, but the first seems worse to me.

@stephanlivera @harding The business travel exception is obviously leaving a bunch unsaid - letting anyone who wanted to go to a conference would defeat the point, as there'd be more people leaving than hotel quarantine could handle coming back. But if the line between business that's ok and not ok was something principled, they'd probably be willing to tell you...
