Adventures in traveling

This is a recording of my blog from December 10, 2019

Today was a day of false starts and a lot less adventure than planned. I got pulled into something that totally slowed down my plan to spend the entire morning digging into those Coursera classes on architecting in Kubernetes on GCP. My flight from Denver to New York City did not have a very stable internet connection.

Recently, my experiences with internet while flying have been getting worse than before. I remember this technology working a lot better. All I really do is read papers and push things forward in terms of surfing till the end of the internet. Today would have been a great opportunity to really dig in and catch up on some news and read some papers during the flight. Turbulence was bad enough that reading anything with a tiny font was going to be a problem during the flight.

It seems like the amount of turbulence has been increasing over the last few yes. I do not have any direct evidence to prove that assentation, but I’m pretty sure that it is true. Somebody somewhere probably collects that type of data. If I had a good internet collection, then I would be able to read about it and confirm or deny that hypothesis. Right now, instead, I’m writing on my Pixelbook Go in a Google Doc and watching, “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shah.”
