So, I was notified by my (former) employer, Akamai Technologies, that I would be made redundant effective mid-March 2020. I'm locked out of their building and their network, but they still pay my salary and health benefits. In addition, as long as I agree with their terms, I get a severance package that will carry us into June, including their paying for the COBRA of that time. I am 67 y.o., so am eligible for Social Security and Medicare. Inconvenience comes because my wife, Claire, still needs medical insurance.
I am looking for a new post.
In pursuit of that, and in wanting to write up something on these anyway, I'm devoting nearly full time to three projects, one which wrapped up today.
This one, which I will open a discussion about, is introducing mark-recapture methods and suggesting how they can be used for other than counting wildlife populations, their traditional home. That is not a new idea, but it is surprising how unfamiliar other fields are with these.
