Earlier on this month Andre Hedrick passed away, Linux kernel developer, engineer, father and human at all… Jeff Garzik writes a insightful eulogy, but I kept this part to every one involved on tech and programming.
There is no computing project that is worth your life. Turn off the computer. Seek help. Get outside, enjoy the green grass, the birds in the trees. Talk to people you know. Talk to strangers! Drive to Wisconsin, and find out whatever it is they do there. Build a treehouse. Park on a parkway and drive on a driveway. Make a macaroni necklace. Visit a dairy. Climb a rock. Seek life. Life is so much more than code.
