We're staying positive in our home offices. But we've all got lots of online activity scheduled.

Mentioned: Dave and Sharon's how-to video on hosting a virtual party: and how to be a good guest at a virtual party:

Topic 1: Companies "doing it right" in the current environment.

Many companies are suddenly facing a new environment - and one most were not prepared for. How are they responding? We talk a few winners out there. For example:

Paypal is delaying payments on their "Working Capital" loans for ninety days. BMW - suspend the next two payments. Both of these are designed to avoid a negative hit on your credit report.

Messaging with the right tone: Examples include Nike "Stay together at home," Coca Cola, and Burger King.

Topic 2: L.A. Wants Uber's Big Data

Uber Sues the city of Los Angeles over access to their big data. And of course this leads into the discussion of data availability . . . and even into our previous conversation about the Contract for the Web.

Wherein we pick a technology to discuss what it will look like “after” the current economic downturn is over.
