You should never miss #whiskeyFriday w/ @baratunde and @ronjdub when it’s on the menu. Period.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
(If you already know, you knew. If you didn’t, spread that)

Some folks asked me to post the audio with the slides. Long talk but apparently the Biggie and Jay Z references were a hit. Also my anecdote about a VC falling asleep on me
