Part I: Spatial Analytics, Presented by Mo Chen
Spatial analysis plays an important role not only in our everyday life and business, but also in the fight against the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. In this webinar we will see how the concept of spatial analysis was sparked due to an epidemic event in history. We will give an overview of spatiotemporal datasets, which serve as the foundation of almost all spatial analysis including RMDS’ Project Coronavirus. Attendees will also have a chance to see how mapping acts as a powerful tool in visualizing and informing the trend of coronavirus worldwide. Lastly, some examples will be shown to illustrate how some further spatial analysis can be done, on top of spatiotemporal datasets and mapping, to give us more confidence in winning this battle.
Part II: Epidemiological Modeling, Presented by Suyeon Ryu
In this webinar, we will discuss how we have built data-driven models upon coronavirus-related data collected from multiple sources in order to track and predict the spreading trend of the virus. Specifically, we will focus on the epidemiological SIR model to simulate the development of the coronavirus in different cities. The stochastic SIR model can estimate the termination date, infection rate, recovery rate, and R0 of the coronavirus. We will discuss how we used MCMC to estimate the distribution of epidemiological parameters, and once we have the distribution of parameters the future predictions come from simulations using the Monte Carlo method.

Normally our meetups happen at a venue in New York City, but as a COVID-19 countermeasure, we are meeting online this month instead. We will provide a Zoom video conference link 20 minutes before the meetup here and in the IndieWeb chat.
This meetup aims to bring together folks in the New York City area — but hey, it's on the internet, so the rest of y'all can come by if you want, too.
IndieWebCamp London 2020 is a gathering for independent web creators of all kinds, from graphic artists, to designers, UX engineers, coders, hackers, to share ideas, actively work on creating for their own personal websites, and build upon each others creations.
I’ll be attending remotely from Los Angeles as best as I can given the time difference and hope to get some fun new things working on my website this weekend. The etherpad for session proposals is already up for those who want to start posting their discussion ideas.
March 25, 2020 at 07:00PM- March 25, 2020 at 09:00PM
We are taking this meetup online! As a precautionary measure, it's probably best to limit face to face interactions given the current situation regarding the Corona Virus. So, the WPLA organizers are going to test out conducting our meetups virtually via Zoom (details below).
So, prep your webcams and get ready to continue our discussion on accessibility!
Our friend, Joe Simpson, who organizes the Santa Clarita WordPress Meetup & WordCamp will be going through real examples of how to make your site accessible. Be ready for an interactive and collaborative discussion!

What does the future of living in space look like? Is it going to look like the promise of sci-fi movies, or somewhat different? Join Anastasia Prosina for a peek at the necessary aspects for habitable modules to thrive in long-duration missions to Mars and why you should care.
The time when space exploration was only a matter of government has ended. In the past few years, a number of private space companies have skyrocketed. Elon Musk claims that the first manned crew to Mars will happen in 2024 whereas NASA plans to send humans to the same destination in the middle of the 2030s.
There is a lot of interest expressed on how we will get there, yet no particular plans on HOW we will sustain our presence in the severe environment. Yet, NASA estimated that the crew behavioral health is a secondary risk in manned space missions after radiation exposure. Human factor considerations increase with the longevity of missions, in particular, their application to where future travelers will be living to support the wellbeing of the crew in an enclosed environment.
Anastasia Prosina is an award-winning aspirational futurist and practitioner in Space Architecture, the nascent field of helping people thrive in small spaces in space. She is the Founder & CEO at Stellar Amenities, a company with the mission of complementing space habitats with lightweight, deployable & reconfigurable elements to support wellbeing in space. Anastasia has been involved in numerous space projects, from designing lightweight interior habitation structures for the TESSERAE self-assembling space station at MIT Media Lab's Space Exploration Initiative to working on an Iceland-based Martian Analog Habitat commissioned by Mars Society. Her other places of work include aerospace company Excalibur Almaz, 4th Planet Logistics, and Galaktika Space. Anastasia holds a Masters in Space Architecture from Sasakawa International Center for Space Architecture in proximity and collaboration of NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston. Anastasia received a Bachelor's in Urban Design from Novosibirsk State University of Architecture, Design, and Art. Lived her entire life in Siberia, Russia, she is now paving her way in the Los Angeles space sector.
