Littalics on Wednesday 2

Edition #4 - June 24th, 2020

Happy Wednesday!

I want to thank those of you who visited me this week in my new home online! It is starting to feel like home, really. Especially when people in my network use the website facilities. Indeed, digital transformation happens at the level of solopreneurs too! Hurray!
Next week I'll launch "The List", with four new categories of resources about Ethics in workforce AI: Strategic Thinking, Practices, Product Reviews, and Social Context. So, stay tuned!
Meanwhile, enjoy "Littalics on Wednesday", with new "Tweets and Treats", thoughts and articles, updated resource lists, and my warm regards from sunny Tel Aviv! Though, still more at home, and less at the beach... :)
