I felt bad about leaving that black-pilled post up for two days while letting y’all hang on that part two for Apocalypse now. Luckily, Heartiste has been killing it today, so if you need the entertainment go check out the five excellent posts he put out.
But it costs me nothing to repost an idea I put on the Discord earlier. (Well, nothing except the time waiting for the 3 GB of daily updates to download for the desktop app. Remind me why we use this platform?)
Boneflour had posted this: http://www.unz.com/runz/race-and-crime-in-america/ (The unspoken statistical reality of urban crime over the last quarter century.)
Reminded me of a tech idea I had for predicting real estate price movements. Use the Google Maps API to map distances to a list of problematic and/or woke consumer stores over time, then average these into a composite score. If the distance to the nearest Family Dollar has recently decreased, the composite drops slightly, and vice versa for Whole Foods. Probably need to correct for a population density factor which would be determined empirically.
Voila, an indicator which indicates which neighborhoods are going black, and which are going back. Probably Google would break their API in response, but the site would likely pay off and breaking Google is just a bonus.
Free 2-week course: https://www.udacity.com/course/google-maps-apis–ud864. Might do this myself.
