I’ve been doing a ton of writing and speaking, just not here. My first post on Medium is on COVID-19 myths and has a ton of links to reliable data sources to help dispel them. I’ve been writing some on the Vertica blog, doing a few projects for O’Reilly, and I’ve been writing my usual web content and technical architecture papers. But the main thing I’ve spent my time on in the last couple of years is public speaking. I was set to travel 5 weeks out of the last six to speak at conferences. That didn’t exactly happen.
