Social Distancing With Friends: Zammo CEO Alex Farr

A factoid for our times: Kohler’s sales of smart toilets increased eightfold during the first two weeks of March compared with this time last year.

The trend makes sense to Alex Farr, CEO of Zammo, a platform that brands can use to easily build voice apps. Touchless tech is taking off as people do their best to keep their hands to themselves. It’s a coronavirus thing.

Alex is sheltering in a cabin around 15 miles outside of San Francisco, where he can see the redwoods and take walks with his wife.

He’s also making time for meditation. Alex is a particular fan of Vipassana. “It’s like medicine without taking anything,” he says.
