Virus 2.0

There is a cold virus wending its way among my team at work. Yesterday at our morning meeting there were two people who were noticeably congested and ill-sounding, and another person who said he'd been up all night coughing. That's three people on a team of ten, and last night I started to feel the probable beginnings of a cold myself. It's not uncommon for this to happen with people who work together on a daily basis, that they will share germs....

...except for the fact that none of these individuals work in the same office. Not even the same state, for the most part, and none of us have seen one another for three weeks.

What does this mean? I think it means that viruses are getting much more wily! They are finding ways to spread through computers perhaps, or to target GPS coordinates. Maybe they can travel cell phone waves now -- maybe even analog lines? This means there may be no stopping them! Watch out folks, it's Common Cold 2.0, and it is far craftier than its predecessor.
