Happy birthday LinkedIn! After 17 years this platform has continued to grow exponentially. After reaching 100,000 members in its first year, LinkedIn now has 630 million users.

I read an entire book, drank a cup of coffee before it got cold, completed some neglected house projects, and then I went wild and headed down to the DMV for my Real ID.

How will this pandemic affect the way we work and shop, where we choose to live, and more?
