Hey you. Yeah, you. Guess what happened in 2020? Yeah, I know. The COVID-19 pandemic, lockdowns and a few extra pounds <yawn>, but news never sleeps.

While you were video conferencing half dressed, taking a nap, streaming Netflix or learning how to work from home amid cacophony and constant distractions, you may have missed one or more tech stories that will probably impact us all in 2021 and beyond. Or maybe with the constant cycle of screaming headlines, you forgot about a major development.

The bad news is that 2021 is going to be a lot like 2020 since we're still in the middle of the pandemic. The good news is that we've learned a lot quickly. Some organizations have been thinking very seriously about the future and they have some interesting things planned or in the works.

So, sit back, buckle up and enjoy the ride.
