You know when it’s Davos time when your friends and colleagues on Twitter drop the “D” word, and when on January 20th your twitter feed gets inundated by pictures of a cute red train trolling through the foothills of Switzerland as participants make the annual pilgrimage to the small Swiss village. If you are not part of the lucky few, you can still follow the event from the comfort of your home or office. Here is a primer on the how and where. I will update regularly as more information is released.
