Could the pandemic usher in a new era of working from home?

From a 2018 article written by Desmond...
"I hypothesize that this group of Twelve Percenters will be a loud minority united by shared displacement. With little or no work to occupy their time, they will have an outsized impact on art & culture, using various media to express their experiences. This group will use that cultural relevance as a bullhorn to the political arena similar to the Arab Spring, Tea Party, and Black Lives Matter movements."
