Over the last few days I’ve had delivered to me two sober reminders of our own mortality.

On Friday, Felipe Gaucho passed away suddenly. I am stunned and shocked. Felipe was a great guy, liked by all. In fact, I was exchanging emails with him just a few days ago about some of his upcoming plans. My condolences go out to his family and friends. He will be missed.

And a few days earlier another friend of mine passed away as well, just as suddenly, at an unlikely age.

Technology, work, and competition is fun and tends to consume our days. But in the end it is always about people, relationships, and life. Let’s not forget.
