Old Friends and Maintaining Networks

Today I ran into an old friend from a previous job. I think that given the state of things, now more than ever, it is important to maintain the network of past colleagues. Unfortunately, I haven't been taking the time to do that, but it is definitely something that I want to do.

If you have a group of people at your workplace, it might even be worthwhile to start some sort of regular meeting with them outside of work so that as people leave and move on to other pursuits that everyone can stay in touch. I have done this with the people from one job and I think that it is very helpful.
