Some say it has been a year to forget, 2020. Just press delete and let it go, forever. But if you look back a few months a try to filter out the negatives, I think this year showed us a glimpse into the future, how the businesses and the economy are going to look like a few years down the line.
The way we’ve done anything since March is the way it is going to be. Education, work, collaboration, entertainment, working out, food, pick anything and you’ve got a common denominator, Technology! It was our answer to everything.
You couldn’t sell, you got yourself Shopify. You can’t go to school or university, don’t worry, your classes are going to come to you. No food ? its fine you’ve got Uber Eats. Is it really important to be present in-person to work? Now we know it isn’t. If you’re unwell, Teladoc’s got you. The list could go on and on and I haven’t even mentioned our beloved OTT platforms yet. So…did Tech win 2020?
Tech already is and will be an integral part for a business and the economy to function. It was inevitable, some would argue. But the timelines for these profound changes we saw were not. Things moved at warp speed for something that was supposed to be decades away. It would be interesting to see how the world adapts to the new ways we’ve gotten used to. I’m in the camp that believes Tech could be the springboard we all needed. As my friend Sam said in one of his tweets, we could witness a Roaring 20’s of our generation.
It might happen sooner than we think.
Until next time,
