Don't tell me you did not prepare for this.

Mahesh kindly asked the following question yesterday:

@IgorCarron What is the context of your latest blog post, if I may ask?

I wondered a little bit if the detail of the context mattered and then I decided against providing more light to it. Not because there is something exceptional to it but rather because it doesn't matter. Next time you are at one of these meetings, challenge yourself to be that one person in the room who will ask a question at the end of each of the talks. You did not cross an ocean, get padded by friendly customs officials, exposed yourself to new bugs, traveled thousands of miles to not ask that question or make that comment and start that conversation.
