Started a new internship yesterday, working remote. A small satellite startup doing really, really, interesting stuff. Closed series A, the people are brilliant, and it seems like there's a good roadmap for the future.

Also had a little watch party (at least until the scrub) with my new coworkers (over videochat) for the SpaceX launch this afternoon. Looking forward to Saturday. Stuff I worked on is finally sending people to space!

"All that is constant about the California of my childhood is the rate at which it disappears." - Joan Didion, Notes from a Native Daughter

    there is still a tiny shred of the old BoBo in there...

I hope you're right. I grew up in a small California town and I've seen it change oh-so-rapidly over the years.

I imagine Bolinas would put up a little boom gate and gatehouse if they could find a way to square it with their hippie utopian insularity.

Its residents regularly tear down signs that point to the town as it is.

or saves 2.4 billion birds?

(no, I don't think we should actually kill all the cats. but those are some staggering estimates. more generally avifauna aren't doing great.)
