A person I work with announced today that his position has been eliminated. A longtime member of the team that engineered our core product, this was stunning news. If someone like him could go, anyone could go. It happens every day in companies large and small across the country, but it is still a shock.
I anticipate the arrival of summer, even San Francisco summer. The cold winds and frigid temperatures that have marked these past few months are sticking around far too long. I was at the ballpark on consecutive nights; one for a game that actually started at one in the afternoon but ran into extra innings.and finished an hour before sundown. I hung out near the park though, until after dark. The start of the baseball season always signals spring, no matter how crazy the weather is.
