What were some of the topics during 2020 that you enjoyed getting and reading from your contributors?
In the beginning of the pandemic, I enjoyed learning about the new ways people were dealing with it from the Zoom background, which was a funny article about working with Sharon Nelson and John Simek on the Zoom security issues. And people were moving so fast to be able to help people say, “Wait a minute, think about this. Think about the technology you are sending your lawyers home with and whether their Wi-Fi connection is safe, and that all those ethics rules still are enforced.” It seems like the pandemic topics overwhelmed everything.
The irony was that we all believed that by the fall, we’d be moving past the pandemic. Here we are a year later, and we’re still in the same place. The issues are all still with us, but we must move past them and live our lives.
