I should probably give my Notebook a name soon. Because with all the things that define my life at the moment, my notebook, my mobile phone and my tablet are even more in the center of attention than they have been before. No worries, I'm not a lonely bachelor stuck at home alone. We are a four-member family that, like everyone else, seeks the right balance between home office, home schooling and home lazing. And it works surprisingly well. But everything that happens with or for Merkle has been completely virtualized.
Being a manager at Merkle is an even more exciting job right now than it has been anyway. Not so much because the world has changed so radically in four weeks - it always does in our industry anyway. It's rather that communication and getting close to people is no longer possible so immediately. This is a real change for a company where people and culture are the essence.
