Always Be Curious🔎

March 29 · Issue #14 · View online
Always Be Curious is your weekly shot of sci-tech coverage. Bringing you the now, the how and the wow of science and technology with a special focus on the chip industry.

For The Netherlands, it’s been a week of unknowns. Are the measures taken really enough to curb the pandemic exponential? Will we max out the intensive care capacity? Are we doing the right things? We’ll know soon enough. Meanwhile, thousands of people are mobilizing to help each other, their neighborhoods, the needy. The same goes for scientists and engineers all around the world, who are trying their best to have a positive impact. In this week’s ABC, I’ve collected a bunch of such initiatives to show that especially in tough times with lots of unknowns, creativity and innovation will always offer a path forward. Stay upbeat, folks.
Have a good week,
