Colleagues, in light of Martin French and Torin Monahan’s timely reflections on the surveillance implications of the virus in the latest issue of S and S, the predictions and reflections by the 34 thoughtful people below from Politico may be of interest.

A lot to think about and hope for, as our mediated interactions exponentially increase. Stay well and good and take care of each other as we muddle onward with the strengths we do have. Gary
