As the Coronavirus is not only infecting people but also industries and businesses, also Conditio Humana will be closed for the foreseeable future. As our publisher and mothership, S&S Media, is generating a large portion of its revenue through conferences and events — which are not happening at this point due to COVID-19 — we need to stay put and save every penny we can.
As soon as the crisis is over, Conditio Humana will resume. Thanks a lot to my publisher, Dr. Pouya Kamali-Loibl , my dear colleagues Sebastian and Sarah, for enabling, starting and working with me on this magazine. Thanks a lot to our op-ed contributors and interview partners that agreed to join into our conversation.
The questions regarding the use of new technologies in the light of ethics is still crucial and key for the societies we want to build in the future. The Corona-crisis is an example for this as well: how do we want to use surveillance technologies in the future in order to prevent other pandemics from happening and protecting citizen’s rights in a democracy at the same time.
I look very much forward to discuss all these and other questions with you the readers, hopefully sooner than later! Thanks so much for being with us in the last year since we started Conditio Humana.
See you soon and stay healthy!
