Covid-19 is changing our world and our part in it has already being upended.
The steps our governments need to take to try and suppress this pandemic will inevitably result widespread collateral damage to the economy. Hiring freezes, budget cuts, lay offs - this is what a lot of us have been hearing this past week. And hard reality is that our jobs are going to go.
As we are beginning to learn, the only proper response to shared adversity is come even tighter together as a community, accelerate the sharing of information with each other and surge support to those most in need.
Hence today, I am announcing 3 x new brainfood initiatives to better help us do those things.
Foodhall of Fame - will be repurposed into a searchable database of brainfooders available for work. We’re working overtime to launch this by next issue - when it does, I encourage you all to sign up
Brainfood Chat - free WhatsApp line for brainfooders to speed up access to content & to connect with other community members, directly on your mobile device. Again, live this week.
Brainfood Marathon - a 24 Hour Livestreaming Marathon to promote emergency hire organisations, companies redeploying staff, vendors offering community plus services and stories from you lot - how you are coping with this phase shift in our world. Follow the channel now for updates. I aim to do this within the next two weeks.
