I have been watching the news on the Myanmar coup. I was trying to figure out what the point was. I was tempted to make a cynical comment about how it is always about the money. I suppose that isn’t strictly true. But follow the money first if you want to save yourself some time.
I still remember tracking the news from China and then Italy about the emerging virus. I was hoping the US would be able to isolate and control it, but I didn’t see any movement in that direction. By late February 2020 we started to stock up on food. My last meal at a restaurant was February 28. I realized things would get bad when I went to visit a colleague at a tech company up the road and saw this notice on the door. This was a little over one year ago.
