Mom thought Thanksgiving was last week.
When I was on the phone with her, she confused me with my brother three or four times again.
Luckily her and I set up a durable power of attorney after my older sister passed.
This isn't what I expected in my life at 39.
1/ On outsiders vs insiders:
If you’re an outsider to tech (no exits, nobody has heard of you, early in your career) then get used to being shocked at things insiders can pull off.
Huge ridiculous fundraises with no traction. Big staff. Splashy press.
X : Didn't you work in the environment field?
Me : Well spotted. 1991 - 1994. I used to get shouted at a lot for saying nuclear power was a better option than fossil fuels.
X : Why did you leave?
Me : It was obvious that the market system would prevent change.
