“Like most of you, a lot of my day is spent on the computer. I worried a lot about that – I wanted to make sure my day was interesting, but also wanted to share the truth. Those hours in between everything? Emails. Code reviews. Checking proofs. The things you guys do on a daily basis. These are a few of the more interesting moments, the day’s highlights, if you will.” -Ben Burns
