A huge customer with whom I have a great relationship had reached out specifically for me to come give a lecture. Over the weekend my former colleagues cut me out of the email chain and set up that visit on their own. Now mind you I am close personal friends with these customers and went to dinner with them last night where I learned of this. I am going to let this play out because they have absolutely no background with this customer and they are going to screw this up. Then we will have a chat about how we move forward. I look forward to this chat. Wilson's picture seems a little too aggressive but I may get some pink boxing gloves.
    You can borrow mine! I kind of want to punch these people myself.

    Ha! I was hoping you would see that and weigh-in! They are going to walk into this customer with absolutely no background and they are going to have these folks ask where I am and tell them how close we are. This is such a needless fumble.

    Hahaha! No. It will actually be worse than that. I'm going to talk down to them. You see, Wu-Tang Clan and I have something in common.

    I think there was an earthquake in southeast PA today - or some sort of explosion. Lots of chatter all over the local sites describing similar experiences. Our whole house shook. Have not seen anything official yet.

    Can you feel an earthquake less than 2.5? Must have been an explosion of some sort or maybe sonic boom if not a quake. Dunno. It was felt all over the area.

    Earthquakes are interesting. Mainly because the ones I've been in have not destroyed the building I was in.

    Yeah, this doesn't appear to have actually been one but I have been in a pretty rough one in Cali. Was in a grocery store at the time and lots of stuff came off the shelf. Pretty existential disaster. Like, no wonder all our ancestors believed in vengeful gods. The earth can just decide to be like, "screw you and everything you've built, bwaaaaaaaaa".

    I want to buy Tom Hanks's Airstream, but my wife is weirdly skeptical of the idea.

    Fairly certain I'm gonna be about $248,000 short.
    He's also auctioning this off, which figures to be more within reach and which I would also love to have:
