"I don’t know how close we came, but we certainly made a good, big effort to shine a light on what is happening there." - Re/Code's James Temple.

#Boston   #Technology  
Last week, Re/Code published a nine-part series on tech in Boston, which covered everything from the history of software and computing in the city, to biotech, robotics, and the state of the Boston tech scene since Facebook's departure.

Since March, a group of data-savvy epidemiologists at Boston Children’s Hospital have watched Ebola slowly spread through West Africa, ominously lighting up their dials first as a trickle, then a torrent of mentions on social media and online news reports.
Since March, a group of data-savvy epidemiologists at Boston Children’s Hospital have watched Ebola slowly spread through West Africa, ominously lighting up their dials first as a trickle, then a torrent of mentions on social media and online news reports. The group, HealthMap, has been steadily ahead of the curve tracking this year’s outbreak. One day, they hope to be a step ahead of the next big disease.

What about these titles, eh? 
Astro Teller, chief—no, Captain of Moonshots—at Google's secretive skunkworks shared some behind-the-scenes info about the Google's incubation zone for Really Crazy Ideas. It makes sense for Google to host X: big ideas come with big payoffs, he said in a conversation with Jason Pontin, editor in chief at MIT Technology Review, at the publication's annual EmTech MIT conference.

As the biggest Ebola outbreak in history continues to claim lives, a handful of researchers are using mathematical models and knowledge about the virus to predict the reach of the disease before it strikes. Among them is Northeastern University researcher Alessandro Vespignani, but he and others are stymied by a lack of data about the outbreak and the disease itself, according to a news report in Science.

Each time Crystal Law found herself zipping through Boston in the back of an ambulance, the EMT wished for one thing: A reliable way to inform emergency room staff about the patient she was bringing them.
