funny that even the viral term for setting appropriate work boundaries has a negative connotation (also funny that the biggest piece on this to resonate widely thus far landed in the pages of capitalism’s instruction manual)

Reading in a coffee shop yesterday, a girl who works there came over. "Is that HEAT 2?" she asked, visibly excited. All my life I'd prepared for this moment. I looked at her and heard my voice saying, "Lady, why you so interested in what I read or what I do?"

Personal news: I'm writing a book on one of the craziest law enforcement stings ever, where the FBI secretly ran its own tech startup called Anom & used it to wiretap hundreds of organized crime gangs globally. DARK WIRE will tell that insane story from the people who were there.
