What did the picture you just scrolled past say? Did you have to return to it to remember?
Those of you who are blessed with a photographic memory need not read on. For the rest of us who struggle to recall the name of our own children in a frazzled moment, let us discuss the possibility to remember everything.
Consider a day at work for a moment. How many phone numbers did you manually dial versus auto dial? And how many emails have auto-accumulated conveniently into your contacts list over the years? Now consider recalling all of these items from memory after your building unexpectedly loses power when miles away from your office, a wild turkey flies into power lines in the attempt to flee from one of Thanksgiving’s hungry hunters. Sounds ridiculous but it happened in 2012 in Sonoma County. The bird managed to take out power to over 2,000 residents, businesses, a computer aided Emergency dispatch system and all of the local safety departments across the county.
The popular tech savvy website, TheWireCutter.com, noted that “According to Dunn & Bradstreet, 59 percent of Fortune 500 companies experience a minimum of 1.6 hours of downtime per week. Assuming an average staff of 10,000 employees who are paid an average of $56 per hour (including benefits), the downtime loss in labor alone for a Fortune 500 firm would ring up at $896,000 per week — or more than $46 million annually.” Knock on wood that your losses will not be as high as any major corporation, but that doesn’t mean you’re at lower risk for potentially experiencing that same 1.6 hours of downtime due to weather, rolling blackouts, or simply human (or animal) error.
