    Coronavirus Nerves: Whoa Horsey!
    March 12, 2020
    Someday a future Monty Python comedy troupe will reprise the plague scene from the Holy Grail in which a character pushes a cart through a street shouting "Bring out your dead!" only to discover one who isn't dead yet. What will be funny about our era? Perhaps it will have something to do with overreacting to the situation by reordering society, as some have suggested.
    Podcasting Around the Virus - and Beyond
    March 10, 2020
    Several conferences I was scheduled to attend have been canceled in the past week. All of the sponsors cited an abundance of caution in the face of the unknown consequences of coronavirus transmission and outright COVID-19 pneumonia. That's all to the good, but we need to get business done even in the face of the virus, because business has to propel itself forward or individual companies wither.
    COVID-19 and the End of Daily Life as We Know It
    March 9, 2020
    We apparently have no immunity to COVID-19, and a vaccine likely is around 18 months away. It takes a while to change human behavior, but if we go a full 18 months or more with people working from home and avoiding places like malls, big box stores, and other areas where people congregate -- like offices and events -- it will force a fundamental, permanent change in the way we work and interact.
    The Virus and Podcasting
    March 7, 2020
    The coronavirus scare is working its way through the economy -- even affecting CRM. At this point some vendors are canceling events rather than taking the risk of having thousands of customers, press and analysts descend on a city, swap microbes through the air for a few days, then go home and likely further spread the microbes, some of which could be the virus.
    COVID-19 and the Bleak Outlook for the Tech Supply Chain
    March 6, 2020
    Foxconn, a key parts supplier for Apple, Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony, said its plants on mainland China will resume normal production by the end of March.

    Amid Disaster, COVID-19 Presents Opportunities
    March 5, 2020
    The coronavirus presents the biggest threat to the global economy since the Great Recession of 2008 -- not to mention the threat to human life.

It threatens many sectors, and it will have a negative impact on consumer sentiment and purchasing patterns.
    Tech Industry Occupies Front Line on Coronavirus Battleground
    March 3, 2020
    The coronavirus known as "COVID-19" is posing global threats that are challenging businesses worldwide, forcing them to put new policies and practices into place to prepare for and communicate with their workforces.

    Facebook Bans Coronavirus Ad Scams
    February 27, 2020
    Facebook is clamping down on ads and misinformation relating to coronavirus. Criticism of social media platforms for spreading fear and confusion about coronavirus is rife. Still, Facebook's decision-making has raised a few eyebrows, as the coronavirus ad restrictions could be interpreted as limiting free speech in a way that is inconsistent with Facebook's general practices.
    RSA, COVID-19 and Risk
    February 26, 2020
    Two things are happening simultaneously: The RSA Security Conference is in full swing and so is COVID-19. It's a strange juxtaposition. There is geographic proximity in that the conference is going on undeterred just a few blocks from where the mayor declared a state of emergency, during the event, due to the ongoing spread of the virus. There's also topical alignment.
    Coronavirus Pandemic: 6 Things We Should Be Doing
    February 3, 2020
    As I write this, the first studies of the Coronavirus outbreak are coming in. The count now exceeds 17,500 cases in 24 countries. There have been more than 360 deaths, almost all in China.

    January 31, 2020
    WHO has declared the coronavirus a global health emergency in recognition that the disease risk no longer is confined to China. UN member countries may decide to close their borders, cancel flights, implement special screenings at airports, or take other steps in response to the notice.

    January 30, 2020
    We asked ECT News Network's roundtable of industry insiders to reflect on their own personal tech preferences, to speculate on what popular gadgets may vanish from use in the next decade, to consider the role of wearable health tools -- and then to expand the discussion to the health of the planet, tech advances in traveling on it, and the prospect of leaving it altogether.

    January 27, 2020
    When it comes to any merger, you often can't trust the reason the firms are merging, particularly if financial rather than operational managers are driving the process. When it comes to hostile takeovers, you can bet you are being misled, because the rhetoric will address synergy, but the folks driving the effort know the more likely goal is to destroy the acquired company.
    CES 2020: Prepare to Be Amazed
    January 6, 2020
    Every year I look forward to CES being over. That's not because it isn't interesting -- it is. It's because the place is a nightmare to get around, thanks to some incredibly stupid decisions that turn Las Vegas into a gridlocked mess. Coming right after the holidays, it destroys more family vacations than any other event short of a long driving trip with very young children.

    December 23, 2019
    Sometimes when you tug on the thread of a small customer service failure, you unravel a big skein of much knottier problems.

    November 6, 2019

The obvious option was to build tools that enabled users to craft systems of engagement.

Referring to it as "the world's lungs" may be an overstatement, but the rain forest is a critical global resource, and its destruction undoubtedly will worsen global warming. Given that the U.S. government has dismantled many environmental protection rules, companies are beginning to step up to work on offsets.
