Now that you’ve understood that feeling of shared fear, stress, and uncertainty, I’d encourage you to consider your situation. Imagine if your safety nets disappeared – money, expensive education, family name, etc. How does that shape your behavior?
Today was a day, y’all. My goodness. We’ve got a long road ahead. Everyone is impacted. Your friends, family, neighors, and strangers. No one is exempt. Now is a good time to understand the true power of empathy – everyone is feeling the way you are. Does that give you comfort?

About to head back to LA from Palo Alto after a very successful, though very short, business trip. I had the pleasure of presenting in the beautiful @awscloud Palo Alto office on the topic of microservices. Thanks for the opportunity!
On the other hand, I got a new car, and am quite excited about it. Another Alfa Romeo Giulia, this time in metallic black with all black exterior accents and rims. Inside is red leather. It’s a proper mid-life crisis car. 🤣
