LISA was my first professional conference and community. im genuinely excited for the future; SREcon is a natural home for the content, because (imo, anyways) SRE is more than just error budgets and SLOs.

did u know: in the US a car’s window sticker is referred to as a “monroney sticker,” named after oklahoma senator mike monroney who sponsored the automobile information disclosure act of 1958. legally it must include a listing of base features, options, suggested prices, engine, transmission, fuel economy, and warranty info. you can go to prison(!) for illegally modifying one.
