The Digital Life
Welcome to the second half of 2020. Let’s hope we see some improvements over the first half huh? 🙂 As cases ratchet up again in California, we’ve been busy behind the scenes helping and coaching people remotely. A big highlight this month was supporting our client Art & Creativity for Healing launch new live, WebEx based workshops. If you’re looking for something creative to do this summer, check them out. Live workshops are half off through August with code LIVE50. 👍
On to the news - we’ve got interesting articles for you this month, hand curated with care as always. Take a browse - there’s sure to be something to pique your interest. What’s a social media BUMMER for starters?! Then on to security and privacy updates, some fascinating health technology, meeting technology updates, and more. Don’t forget our tech history section and a newsletter recommendation for you.
Speaking of newsletters, if you like what you read, share it with your friends! There are handy links at the bottom. We’d love to see more subscribers. ♥

In tech history
Sony pioneers the idea of social distancing!
The first Sony Walkman, the TPS-L2, goes on sale in Japan. It would go on sale in the US about a year later. By allowing owners to carry their personal music with them, the Walkman and their iconic headphones introduce a revolution in listening habits and popular culture at large.
The price - $150 (about $500 in today’s dollars). Not bad if you compare to today’s tablet and electronics prices. Bad if you consider what you get for $500 forty years on!
