Job change. I no longer work in tech but work as a writer. I still do techie things, but for the most part my money comes from words I produce that generate ad revenue... To be honest, the last 3 years all kind of feel like one long year where not much has happened except lockdown, and escape from lockdown. Nobody, that I know, works downtown anymore. Anyway, if I run into something techie, I'll still post here. If you are reading this, I love you. Thank you.

I'm still alive, and I hope if you're reading this you are, too. It's been a pretty gnarly year: fires, deaths & long-term illnesses from the pandemic, crashed economies except for anybody that owned stock, and much, much more. I spent 100 days learning machine learning, and hope to use it on a for real work project soon. I'm also ditching Ruby for Elixir because of scalability and cost issues. Why spend $100 a month on a Ruby on Rails website when you can spend $10 running Phoenix "powered" by Elixir? If you are still around, I'd love to hear from you. I'm on Twitter and DMs are open.

Update on possible YouTube channel. Right now the tech industry has changed so much, and continues to change faster and have demands for more specialization. E.G. there are less full stack jobs, and more jobs that require either a specialization on the front-end or the back-end. Furthermore, the back-end seems to be split into anything that supports machine learning (ML), or a site reliability engineer role (SRE). Right now, I'm just figuring out which should be my focus.

It's been awhile. So much has changed with Internet technologies in the last 3 years. Right now it's all about React on the front end and either a really capable asynch and concurrent type technology based on Elixir or Node. JavaScript, and one mobile one is the language to know these days, if you want to change the world dramatically with your ideas. I'm going to take you through this journey of Internetting in these strange times.
