Okay, about those predictions I made last year… Each December I like to make a few predictions about the year ahead. But what is a prediction without a healthy dose of reality to cut it down to size? We don’t check such things often enough, we just tend to make more. I’ll get to that part soon enough, but first: how did I do last year?
The pandemic will ebb but only slowly, but we will pretend otherwise.
Indeed, this has mostly been the case. COVID-19 is still out there, but we have all determinedly decided not to notice most of the time. The conference circuit has resumed, and the world has not ended. But who could tell? Nobody even reports on the numbers anymore.
