It has been exactly one year since, together with thousands of other employees, I did not follow the infamous link sent by Elon Musk, and we were laid off from Twitter.
I won't make comments about that sad and tiny individual.
I only want to remember, salute and honor all the people I met during those 10 years at Twitter. I miss you all: you were a super capable and amazing group. So far, those had been the best 10 years of my professional career (of more than 25!).
I hope you are all doing well.
New book out :-) "Twittoons: One employee's cartoon chronicle of Twitter's accelerated descent". 86 pages in full color, >100 drawings (many of them not published anywhere yet), $12.90 (see link for price in your country). I hope you like it! https://twittoons.com
Ken Thompson interviewed by Brian Kernighan at VCF East 2019, super fun and interesting!
Many of you know that my family is helping a Syrian refugee family living in Lebanon. Last night the army went into their camp and took all their things, including some solar panels we recently helped them buy so they could charge their phones and have some light at night.
They are not allowed to work, so their situation is extremely difficult (besides the general situation in Lebanon).
I'm hoping you can help us raise some money to send them (our goal is $2500) and they can rebuild (a little bit) their lives.
If you can help, you can send the money via Venmo to:
and, of course, we will send them the money in one transfer.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
If you could also boost this message, I will appreciate it.
Creative Technology founder and CEO Sim Wong Hoo dies https://www.channelnewsasia.com/singapore/sim-wong-hoo-dies-creative-technology-founder-ceo-3184226 I still remember how awesome my Soundblaster 16 card was, and blown away by the sound quality while playing games. Every geek/IT folk in 80s/90s used those cards at some point. #RIP
