The COVID-19 pandemic has been a protracted traumatic experience. The last 18 months has changed me, but I don’t know how. This is my way of making sense of it all.
I need to come to terms with my up-close-and-personal look at the way that government, corporations, and NGOs respond during a global crisis. How could so many organizations rely on each other so much, yet find themselves on completely different pages more often than not?
To do this, I’m going back through my emails, texts, and DMs with officials in FEMA, HHS, CDC, California, Texas, the Biden Transition, Apple, Facebook, Google, and more.
The key thing to bear in mind is that this isn’t a newsletter, it’s therapy. I’ll post often but not more frequently than I’m able to cross-reference my own notes and formulate full thoughts.
