As New Yorkers, we have a visual reminder of when September 11th comes around. There's starting to be enough passage of time between now and that day when not everyone in my circle was in the city at the time. What percent of the tech community, for example, which trends young and non-native NYC was in New York in 2001? What percent of today's tech community lost someone?
I lost a junior high and high school friend, Paul Battaglia. I'd like to think Paul would have been one of these NYC finance people that would have found his way into tech. He was into computers and had a geeky sense of humor. He would have been a good Twitter follow for sure, and as his college's radio station manager, he definitely would have been all over podcasting.
As I was double checking the spelling of his name via Google, I found out that last year, his mom released the final phone call he made from the 100th floor of the WTC. It's obviously very upsetting, but it also puts into context how unaware everyone was about how the tragedy would unfold. Few realized that they were racing against the time the buildings had left before they came down.
As we've watched the events of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and remember the events of September 11th, I hope we can all remember how previous and fragile life can be. We're temporary residents here and you never know when life can go off the rails. All the more reason to take advantage of today. Whatever you are dreaming about--start making it happen now. Whatever committments you were thinking about making, there's no better day than today to get started. And whatever people in your life you need to get things straight with, stop putting it off. If tragic events led to a CNN blurb about your life, would you want it to be filled with accomplishments and activity, or the things you were dreaming about or planning on doing?
Go make it happen today.
Congrats to Bowery's Mike Brown, Jr., and Andrew Norelli of Visable World for finishing yesterday's Lake Placid 70.3 Half-Ironman. That's a 1.2 mile swim, 56 miles on the bike, and a 13.1 mile run. We all placed around the top 20% mark, with Mike edging me out by 6 minutes, due in large part to some amazing transition times. So, if you're pitching him, and he leaves the room for a moment, only to come back wearing something completely different, like a wetsuit, don't be surprised.

My indoor floor hockey team (on sneakers) is experiencing the miracle of life--i.e. one of our star players pregnant and so she's out for the season. We need a replacement female player.

In any case, we need a sub, so reply here and let me know if you're interested. We're a fun group. Games are on Sunday afternoons and start in October.

Haskell has been around for almost three decades now. The industry adoption of Haskell has been scarce in spite of its tremendous benefits. That's why Eta was born. Eta is a pure functional language on the JVM that is fully compatible with Haskell 7.10.3. Most of the talk will cover the core differences between Eta and Scala, as well as some of Eta's distinguishing features. We'll also take a look at how Eta generates bytecode and how that compares with Scala's generated bytecode. We'll end with a session on how to integrate Eta into your Scala projects. Rahul Muttineni is the CTO of TypeLead, and the primary engineer behind Eta. He's in the latest Techstars class in NYC. He and Jyothsna Patnam, CEO of Typelead, will be here until October.

We're hosting the next Nonprofits Who Code Meetup at Huge on the 20th. Hope to see you again! Panel moderated by Jeffrey Zeldman, leader in web design and web standards – featuring Jen Simmons (Mozilla), Jeffrey MacIntyre (Bucket), and Glenda Bautista-Baker (Hearst)! Whether you’re technically savvy, people-savvy, or both; whether your organization’s abundantly financed or you struggle to raise shoestring budgets; and whether you’re ready or not, over the next five years, massive change will be expected from every organization with a digital presence — including your nonprofit. Digital publications, social media channels, and corporate brands will offer new modes of AI-powered customization, new modes of input (such as voice), and new products that further blur the already smoky lines between the personal and the designed, the real world and the digital. Customers will expect the same level of sophistication and service from the nonprofit brands they care about. And they’ll find new brands to care about, if yours doesn’t measure up. But the future doesn’t have to be scary. In fact, it looks pretty exciting. Join technology experts and product designers who are leading the exploration for a look into our shared future.
