I met my geeky match at work in Eric Havir. He knows the internet, the trends, the tech, the memes as well as, or better, than anyone I know. He’s now at Microsoft (and you know they only hire idiots, right?) managing some small business products. We miss him a lot, but we’re getting along ok. Keep in touch eric!
I am, of course, talking out of my ass at his goodbye party. It’s axiomatic: give cuene a beer, clavenisms follow. Then…crickets. Poor eric had to listen patiently while his beer warmed up, thinking, “they don’t pay me enough to keep listening to this goober. I can’t wait until Bill signs my checks”.
