Reality Check

Posted by Phil Aaronson at 7:45 PM

Was just sent this picture of my Uncle Phil doing some volunteering for an English class in the West Bank. Seeing that, I think, what a pampered slacker I am. And I get this feeling a lot! My wife is a NICU nurse at Stanford Children's Hospital. Before she went on maternity leave it wouldn't be that unusual for me to give her a call at work and have her tell me to hold on for a second. A couple minutes might pass before she would come back on the line with an apology, the baby she was taking care of had forgotten to breath. No really, forget me ... I think that's a little more important.

So while this tech world I live in is fun and challenging, it's great to be reminded just how unimportant it really is. And I say that in the nicest possible way.
