I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but am I the only person who thinks the mass publication of the Omicron variant by the media was due to traditionally low viewership during the holidays? It seems like the Media wants to dictate COVID’s trajectory & demise to align with their business strategy. As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.

I have a pyramid event tomorrow but I feel sick and I have a severe cold. Tickets have been purchased already, I am 100% certain it’s not covid because I took a test already.

I just got an offer from Facebook. I can choose either a SWE or a SWE, ML role. I want to focus on production code: either productionization of ML models or just generic back-end would be fine, the former is more in line with my experience. Does anyone know how much modeling is expected in a SWE, ML position at Facebook? I'm thinking this isn't the right position if I want to fully avoid ML modeling, and that I should go in as a generic SWE. What do you think? Thanks!
