Help! I spilled coffee on my keyboard 😂😂😂
In my head the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" theme starts playing right at the end.
@fribbledom It's good to be part of the burn the mop-head just received.
@fribbledom but, I mean, at the same time, I can download an app on my phone, but that doesn’t mean it’s functional. 😏
@fribbledom pretty good
@fribbledom who would have thought that "Neuland" Germany - of all countries - would be the poster child here
@fribbledom fabulous cut!
@fribbledom 12M downloads in a population of 80M isn't going be useful.
That's 12M within less than a week and scientists already deem it useful at that penetration rate.
@gom @fribbledom A contact tracing app is only useful if there's a reasonable chance an infected person you encounter is also using it, or any person for that matter. A few scattered people running around with the app will contribute roughly nothing. Now if, as suggested, those 12M downloads are concentrated in a subset of the population likely to meet, then it can perhaps be of some use.
@fribbledom I think I don't have enough context to fully get this, but this is already fun to watch
@jabgoe2089 Apparently the French app had resulted in only 14 notifications being sent after 3 weeks of operation: https://www.numerama.com/tech/632499-stopcovid-seulement-14-notifications-ont-ete-envoyees-depuis-le-lancement-de-lapp.html
@jabgoe2089 app launched on 2nd June, 1.8M activations but since then 400k uninstalls. App does not conform to spec especially in the domain of privacy (which was trumpeted as best-in-class before launch), Minister now says « app’s relevance is relative » and it ends up costing 200k€ per month for hosting on Microsoft datacenters which were chosen without a public bidding process (which is against the law) and this is now under investigation by the anti corruption watchdog.
