“We are all in this together.” We have all heard that countless times recently. We are all together but separated, in a situation that we have never experienced before, with millions of people on enforced layoffs from work and education. We have little certainty of how long this is going to last; the initial round may be gone before this issue arrives in your mailbox but the experts warn of it coming back, maybe more than once, before technology gets the better of it. When it is here and the world slows to a crawl we can choose to lie all day and night on the sofa feeding our faces while binge-watching junk TV, or we can be productive.
