Because we can see, hear and read about fascinating developments in science, arts, entertainment, academia, technology and many more. Wasn’t it beautiful to see nations, big pharma, big tech and international organizations band together, pulling resources together to confront the Covid-19 pandemic in a way that was unprecedented? Isn’t it beautiful to track new developments in transportation and logistics showing faster and more comfortable systems?
