Want to be able to predict the future of America? Futurists always say to look to Asia.

Not one. Not two. But THREE porch/driveway parties spotted on my neighborhood walk tonight. Not a mask in sight. People overheard talking about their pedicure before. These people have just gone back to normal in the span of a week.

An important lesson for #marketers. The traditional channels have changed, and it sometimes extends your reach beyond to go an unorthodox route.
