About COVID-19 | 20th March
Ideas can spread faster than viruses. Both bad ideas and good.
In fact, an idea is very much like a Virus, its resilient, highly contagious. The smallest seed of an idea can grow. It can grow to define… or destroy you.

Apart from the actual virus that’s taking over the planet right now, there are plenty of idea viruses spreading fast as well. The speed and reach of the internet only enhance the effect of these ideas.
And once they take seed in people’s minds, they can grow, slowly at first, and rapidly later on at a an exponential pace. These ideas can end up consuming a person inside out.
In times like these it’s important to be aware of your own thinking, to be careful of the various ideas taking seed in your own head. To be deliberate about how and what you consume online and how it shapes what you think.
With that in mind we are sending this pop-up, off-schedule email, with a set of links that are helping us think better about COVID-19.
This is just a set of links that we think can help you understand the crisis better. Check them out—
