Contagion & Some Thoughts
So my love affair of going to the movie theater on Friday afternoons appears to be over for a while. I have a background in genetics, as well as 9 disaster deployments. All the numbers and everything Ive researched (for days) says this is real and if you aren't at that point yet, please take it seriously.
It isnt so much about the young and strong getting sick and dying, its more about spreading it to those who are vulnerable, the older generations, those with weakened immune systems and respiratory issues like asthma, They are at far greater risk. Its going to be very different for the next couple weeks, but we will be a better world on the other side of it no doubt.
Because of this, a movie I would STRONGLY recommend is Contagion. It is a very instructive of the challenges and issues the world would / is facing, but most importantly, how human behavior can change very quickly once in a disaster situation. Its one of Steven Sodenburgs best films.
As for me, I am hunkered down in self isolation for the last week or so, and will continue with my normal work. Lots of great videos and books (yes two!) and kickstarters coming.
Be safe and assume everyone you meet has it.
