Episode 2

General safety and online conferencing

Humane Tech gets a new structure. Shorter and to the point. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. COVID-19 has us isolating but that doesn't mean we can't be in each others' lives.

In episode 2, I bring you general privacy and cyber security tips. Do these seven (7) things and you're in pretty good shape. Then we hit on online conferencing concerns and how to approach them. Finally, I illuminate a few of the threats we need to watch out for.


Humane Tech is not sponsored and there are no paid advertisements. Instead, we prop up each other. In this episode, I mention three businesses supporting women in the Portland/Vancouver metropolitan area (this is Oregon and Washington states).

Ps & Qs Market is offering curbside groceries service and take-out meals. Their food is wonderful and so is their staff.

Thatcher's Coffee is owned and operated by our great friend and her incredible staff of women. They support the community and now we can support them. While they are currently closed, you can support them by buying Thatcher's Blend Coffee from Roseline Coffee. We ordered two bags over the weekend and expect to brew some up on Wednesday or Thursday.

Rose Haven is a day shelter and community center serving women, children and gender non-conforming folks experiencing trauma, poverty, and physical and mental health challenges. Restoring stability and dignity for 3,500 guests annually. They are incredible people and continue to work hard through this COVID-19 crisis. We'll support them as long as we can.

We're grateful for you. Let us know what you want to hear next.
