Everything’s changing, amirite?

I think Bill Murray said it best while explaining the situation in New York in 1984 when the ghosts were let out of the…well, I don’t want to spoil it for you, let’s just say it led to this epic line:

Side note: is it just me or is there some weird acting going on by his partner in the background?

So yeah, things are nuts. Presumably some dogs and cats are living together, even. Not in my house; we’re a strict No Cats Zone due to allergies (plus they freak me out a little, truth be told), but our dogs are happier than they ever have been, so there’s that.

Among the many changes I’ve seen has been the use of video, both in terms of live zoom-like ‘conversations’ as well as video consumption overall.

Case in point, I had my first The Crisis Turnaround book talk (via Zoom), hosted by Tech Oregon last week. With The 5-Day Turnaround, my first book which came out almost a year ago, I did exactly zero Zoom/video book talks. I have several more coming up over the next few months, so this is a trend that I don’t see slowing down any time soon.

I was also excited to grab my old Spunlogic partners and record our first Spunmafia (that name will make sense when you watch the video) episode. I doubt I would have thought to do that if it weren’t for the current state of things.

On the video we discussed how we founded the company, the 10 years we spent growing it, and how/why we sold the company in 2008.

You can also subscribe to my YouTube channel to receive updates when I post more videos. (If you’re into that kind of thing.)

Due to the reception of both of those videos, I’m going to take a half-step into creating more video content. It’s always been a medium that I’ve been interested in, and while I will most definitely still write, I plan to try my hand at recording things (with friends or by myself) to see if it’s a platform that has any stick to it.

So expect to see more videos from me, and don’t be scared when you see new my quarantineed look:
