how much you wanna bet there’s some guy in the world that only pays for things using George H.W. Bush $1 Coins (ref https://catalog.usmint.gov/george-h-w-bush-presidential-1-coin-2020-rolls-bags-and-boxes-MASTER_BUSHRBB.html)
celebrating my cat on national dog day
being intentional about what voices we highlighted was an by design and took the effort of many people - usenix, program committees, and chairs over the years.
it's something i think made the conference and field a slightly better place.
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.
i was on my first LISA program committee in 2012. watching the conference evolve over the last 9? years is something i've been really proud to be a part of. indeed, the content changed over time. more importantly though: the people who presented changed.
ultimately it was a check to make sure rabies wasn’t a thing. cool! okay. makes sense, let’s do that. but without any context other than “can we facetime your cat to make sure she’s okay” i was pretty concerned about like: what could happen here? and why? no one told me what to expect!
apparently abby bit or scratched at the kitty ER on the 19th, which - she was in a terrible state so, not a surprise. had no idea this happened && got a call from my city’s animal control about it earlier today
maybe my new name for e*on mu*k
