No. Contrary to what everyone I’ve talked to this week thinks, I’m not going to KubeCon Barcelona. I don’t think I was really planning on it at the beginning of the year. I believe it was added to my schedule right before my Shingles diagnosis. Let me tell you, Shingles is bullshit. I’ve been battling a flare-up of the nerve pain today and it’s gnarly af. I was going to discuss the use of the term “best practice” this week but, I need to go get some rest.

To the almost moms, this day is yours. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise; if they do, send them my way. To the moms that have lost a child, this day is especially yours.

Amidst the SEC probing into his tweet about taking Tesla private, ol’ Elon decides to smoke a blunt on a podcast with Joe Rogan (the memes are amazing by the way). Not the smartest move. The only thing dumber that happened this week was Alex Jones at the US Capitol accosting Jack Dorsey. Did you know Dorsey fasts every day? Alex Jones is so dumb, he pisses off hangry people.

Not a big deal, it’s just a lot of powdery snow early in the winter. It’ll probably be a white Christmas here in the Detroit metro area. Meanwhile, the job hunt is an odd mix of hot and cold. To be honest, I was hoping to have something pretty solid coming back from KubeCon.

There’s no need for a giveaway because you can now get Cloud Native Infrastructure FOR FREE! This week’s edition is delayed due to adventures traveling back from Kubecon (salute to those that stood up SIG-Airport). I have to say that Kubecon had some of the friendliest people I’ve met attending, sponsoring, and running it.
