Actually, he survived a mass shooting that took several of my friends in seattle in 2006. He was in the house.

So I think part of the move was to get away from that. Completely change gears. I don't blame him. That, and Mastercard offered him a ton of cash to develop something for them, so he took the deal and started his own shop in NY.

It was a couple years ago that I reached out. I don't think I will again for awhile.

Sometimes it's fun to talk about some code with coworkers.


Gosh, that's relatable. Even I'm not working in software, i was my own boss in the arena for a bit. But I've found in doing it so long, I just didn't have a lot of peers in general in the field depending on where I landed. It's why I sometimes liked bigger shops like MS that sucked up all the local talent. I could find people to talk to. Otherwise, it was really hit or miss. A lot of other coders don't understand my work.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
