Is Barry the first dude on work-from-home videos with multimillion dollar paintings in his house? (I assume these are not just random trash copies lol).

Well, it is somehow comforting that even billionaires have crappy webcams, microphones, and have connections that drop a lot of packets.

Bill Gates is the only one I've seen that has a professional-looking home setup. Looked better than the TV anchor setups, actually..

At the very end he says: “This is not short term... the effects.” Everyone better hope he is wrong.

Another tidbit: Expedia spends about $5 billion a year on advertising... this will be less than $1 billion moving forward. Lots of other industries (not just travel) will be the same.

He is such a unit.  I agree with him on the effects.  Zero chance I take my family to a ballgame or on a plane until there is a proven, effective vaccine (or we have tested positive with antibodies and the medical community has established the likelihood of reactivation/infection).
