WFH Edition


If you haven't yet, please make sure you read Abby's email about Springbot's Coronavirus precautions, and make sure you have Slack on your phone with the General channel muted so you can stay up-to-date. And here are three more important things you should know: 1. The latest event to fall victim to Coronavirus? The Masters. It was announced today that golf's biggest major would be postponed to a later date. Sweetwater 420 seems to be holding strong, though. 2. Network providers are doing their parts. While we usually associate network giants like AT&T and Comcast with truly horrendous customer service and outrageous bills, it looks like they're setting aside their bad habits to pitch in on the Coronavirus pandemic. "With so many people in the US working and learning from home, as offices and schools close in response to the coronavirus pandemic, internet service providers (ISPs) are beginning to react. Comcast is increasing internet speeds for low-income users, and AT&T told Motherboard that it is suspending all broadband usage caps until further notice." Engadget 3. Remember when we all couldn't wait to get out of 2019? It was an undeniably awful year, and we were all doe-eyed for 2020. Well, let's all commiserate together with some all-star commentary from the Twittersphere. "The last decade was rough. When New Year's Eve rolled around, people posted about how glad they all were to start fresh. But 2020 came at us fast, and nobody's quite able to keep up. As the United States struggles to contain the spread of the coronavirus, Twitter users are realizing just how optimistic they sounded in their New Year's Eve tweets." Mashable
