"It took me a while to realize that this is designed to be a curated summarized analysis of daily developments... Once I realized that, it became a huge time saver. I'm head of [business continuity] for a mid-sized regional bank... Your stuff has been pretty useful. I was ahead of the curve on getting our company's operation ready for broader "shelter in place" initiatives. Thanks."

— Conan

"It is hard to find unbiased information reporting anywhere, but especially on social media. The information and sources found here should be the first place anyone looks. Great work, and thank you."
