Be You, The Whole You And Nothing But You

The hunger for authenticity guides us throughout our lives.

From the ping of our devices to the endless items on our to-do lists, we are often pulled in many directions at once. But when you are spread too thin, you not only end up doing less, you likely are not having much fun doing any of it.

But humans are also contributing to disaster recovery and response through, believe it or not, social media and apps. Case in point: the walkie-talkie app Zello was downloaded one million times in one day during the hurricanes, according to BBC, and Techspot reports that the app has gained 6 million new users since last Monday.
