Summer in Michigan is pretty interesting. Every lake with houses near it seems to have a fireworks display. There’s been fireworks displays since Monday. My poor dog, Sunny, is terrified of fireworks so this weekend we’re holing up in the basement. She’s heard a few pops today and is happily down here beside me snoozing.

Department of Sane Workplaces
Pivotal lost a key pickup while Microsoft is proving how serious it is about open source. Ashley McNamara, Go Developer and all around amazing person, has left Pivotal to join Microsoft.
