Covid has wreaked devestation across the planet, but like many disasters, has made us rise to the challenge and speed up technological change that have benefitted the world. World War II advanced many technologies like aircraft, medical and electronics to the benefit of all. Covid is doing the same and methods, equipment, platforms and acceptance of the value of collaboration over distances will be among the greatest gift covid has given us. This is a powerful force in advancing everything, while dramatically lowering the cost and time frames involved. The semi sector has been the key to this at every stage from software to computational to communications. But the greatest part of this is acceptance of increased collaboration covid forced on us out of necessity. Fortunately the semi/tech sector was at an inflection point that made this all possible and we are still in the early stages of the collaboration revolution that will pay dividends for years. The far more efficient use of resources and time alone will only add to the benefits we are already starting to see on a world wide scale. Covid has united much of the world for it is a common enemy and challenge to all. Hopefully we will have the wisdom to take full advantage of this challenge to increase the our capability to deal with future challenges. Any thoughts or comments solicited and appreciated.
