A Ray of Hope .. and a Scary Image

I don’t agree with the light at the end of the tunnel statement bounced around .. not yet, anyway, but I am hopeful. Note that even though you can see the light, you’re still in the tunnel.

Nor am I with “game changer” statements .. through distancing, we are making progress on transmission, but not on therapy, non-proximity prevention, a vaccine or a cure. With that said, I’m a fan of treating symptoms if it gives the patient enough time to defeat the virus.

New York notes a possible flattening of the curve over the last few days. Italy and Spain as well. This means the physical distancing is working.

Then, there’s this bit from China: “The great crawl of China: Tens of thousands of Chinese tourists are stuck at a jam-packed tourist attraction after it reopened amid coronavirus pandemic“.

Stay connected. Stay safe. 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.
