Hiyo from Bangkok! Cooping up in a hotel room for 14 days was quite an experience. I also wrote an extended article on my quarantine shopping experience, When friction enhances user experience. I have been out of the quarantine for 2 weeks now. It was surreal seeing how people (with masks) crowded a department store in Thailand. On the surface, things seem to go back to normal. However, the shutdown leaves scars. Some businesses close down and will probably never reopen.
The lack of encouragement for scientific collaboration was insightful and is going to be useful for my next piece. Thank you for sharing these thoughts.
