(M+D Archive) Bosses, and The Bossless Under Covid-19
The reaction of recording artists and (some of) the companies that support their work has been inspiring, finding new ways to connect with audiences, and never letting the scarily heavy financial hit they're taking stop them from doing their work. Streaming gigs from empty rooms, making sure audiences still exist, even if only virtually. The response from some bosses in other companies, though, has been less inspiring. Unless you count rage-inspiring.

Step forward Elon Musk, and many other less Twitter prone bosses for who minimising the crisis and keeping the factories open was the real priority here.
