I had an emotional trip to England back in September. I was reunited with family I hadn't seen for quarter of a century. It was the fifth anniversary of 9/11. I was due to give a keynote at the European Rails Conference, and I wasn't sure what I was going to say.
Somehow all these things came together at just the right time. The keynote is now online (44 mins). In it, I talk about terrorism, risk, fear, Ruby, Rails, and hope. I think it's one of my better talks. Enjoy.
