What a year!

2020 - a year that will live in infamy for generations. In the US, everything that could go wrong, did. I was one of the fortunate ones who still had a job that paid well (#) and nothing really worsened in my life outside of social parts of my life.

I thoroughly enjoyed the discussions and meeting 30+ participants as part of the first cohort of my open feedback sessions. Some thoughts and analysis on that later.

A surprising side-effect of no commute meant that I got some additional reading time (more later). Starting in March, I stopped listening to podcasts, but have started to find time for it recently. In line with the industry.
