15 will get you 30

Very happy to hear we’re extending beyond the original 15 daze here in The States to another 30 (depending on the state .. the real duration is yet to be determined, based on the data).

Latest word is April 30, which is far more reasonable than Easter (April 12th) .. other estimates take us into May (Texas is May 4).

We’re doing the proper things .. we’re staying at home, maintaining physical distance and connecting constantly.

Consistent and aware behavior will get us through this. Looking at data will get us through this. Working together will get us through this.

Not miracle curesholding your breath, gut feelings  or drinking chlorine. Please don’t.

Stay the course. Stay home. Make sure that only those who have to go out are safe to go out on our behalf:

Follow the data. While the horrors of each day brings increasing top- and bottom-line counts, some rates are demonstrating things are slowing. This is because we’re managing our behavior.

“You can’t rush the science, but when the science points you in the right direction, then you can start rushing”.

Doctor Anthony Fauci .. October 24, 2001 on HealthDay News.

Holds true today.

We need to “Behave like you have it ..” .. All of us.

Stay close, stay home.

About Michael Coates
I am a pragmatic evangelist. The products, services and solutions I write about fulfill real-world expectations and use cases. I stay up-to-date on real products I use and review, and share my thoughts here. I apply the same lens when designing an architecture, product or when writing papers. I am always looking for ways that technology can create or enhance a business opportunity .. not just technology for technology's sake. My CV says: Seasoned technology executive, leveraging years of experience with enterprise and integration architectural patterns, executed with healthy doses of business acumen and pragmatism. That's me. My web site says: Technology innovations provide a myriad of opportunities for businesses. That said, having the "latest and greatest" for its own sake isn't always a recipe for success. Business successes gained through exploiting innovation relies on analysis of how the new features will enhance your business followed by effective implementation. Goals vary far and wide: streamlining operations, improving customer experience, extending brand, and many more. In all cases, you must identify and collect the metrics you can apply to measure your success. Analysis must be holistic and balanced: business and operational needs must be considered when capitalizing on a new technology asset or opportunity.
