Over the past five months, technology has become more important than ever to bring people together. The global pandemic hurled us all head-first into a technological whirlwind. Virtual meetups are how society has pressed on, how businesses stayed afloat and in touch with employees. It’s how friends and families stayed connected and children finished out the school year. There have even been dance parties.
For a first-time venture, it went very well as this reporter can attest. It took about 15 minutes after the projected start time to work out a few kinks, explain the rules, answer questions and get all 16 participants on the same page.
It’s also free to participate and there are even prizes.
