Got a solid 8 hours of worrying done last night.
Having just watched the technology giants (Microsoft and Apple) announce their new products, it sure looks like Microsoft is the new Apple. While both of these announcements contained polished presentations, only Microsoft had a personality that showed real passion in what was being presented.
Maybe he wasn’t up to Steve Job’s level, but non the less, he was charismatic and enthusiastic. I was much more impressed with Microsofts products than Apple’s.

I am going to post a Go Fund Me post for a friend of mine that has always been an inspiration to me. If you feel moved by his story, feel free to contribute. While he has reached his small goal, you will see that he can use more.
If you don’t feel like contributing, then you might be willing to buy one of his books (Rolling Uphill). I gave each of my grandkids a copy last year for Christmas.
Joe and I worked together in EDS in the 70’s. I never saw him without a smile on his face.
They should make a drug that just replicates the feeling of everyone finally boarding a flight but the seat next to you is still empty.
