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.

(I myself have begun to cull a few virtual and physical pieces of similar evidence.) Even two generations from now might be deeply fascinated by such a personal connection to this unimaginable, global upheaval.
