We move with integrity this Friday.

I touched down in Madison, Wisconsin late Wednesday evening in time to catch the sunset. I’ll be here on #workation before my big move to NYC next week, taking calls from coffee shops, indulging in local wine cellars, and snooping on Google’s soon-to-come machine learning expansion here in the city.

Keeping today’s intro brief so y’all can get to the good stuff.

Enjoy the weekend.
