Wow, what a crazy last couple of weeks in Europe and in the United States. I'm writing and publishing this during a lockdown in Spain due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) in March 2020. On March 3, there was a Tornado in Nashville, TN that affected many people and businesses and caused damage that will take at least a couple of years to rebuild.

Over the next 10 days, all events across the world were cancelled, including professional sports league's entire seasons, and all Universities classes went online only - due to COVID-19.

Not to be dramatic, but the world has definitely changed, and will not be the same moving forward.

While there are many tough times ahead, many things will be better once we get through the COVID-19 pandemic.

After taking the last two weeks to really reflect on what will continue to be relevant, my belief in Voice technology remains stronger than ever.

As such, I'm going to continue to post content, like this snippet from a longer interview with Project Voice founder Bradley Metrock. Though a lot of it, including this interview, was recorded prior to the Tornado and COVID-19 pandemic, I'm going to try to add context like this.

As the world continues to change, I'm going to be learning a lot. What's relevant and what's not in business anymore, etc., but there's no doubt that the space for Voice technology to be utilized will continue to grow.

Thanks for reading, watching and listening, and have a great day!
