I’ve written this newsletter from a lot of places over a variety of internet services. From the WiFi at home, to airplanes, to airport lounges, hotels, AirBnBs, VRBOs, foreign countries, and more, I’ve written DevOps’ish many different places and ways.

Oh and this was my most popular tweet this week.
