One of good things about the last two weeks of December is that a lot of people who used to call NYC home come back for a visit. They do not come back to see me specifically (I am not a big fan of “…you from New York? I used to know a guy who lived there” school of conversation) , but nevertheless some of them that I used to know do meet for coffee, tea, dinner, whatnot. This season was particularly good to me, and as conversations go things turn to books and reading in general. Ideas and impressions are exchanged, authors lauded,screenwriters lambasted, and blog URLs exchanged.
So I was actually surprised that not one of these well-read people reads the excellent defensetech newsletter. For me, it is a fun way to once a month be amazed at what people do, and maybe should not.
