Walt wrote me a nice e-mail a couple of months after I had started my blog and complimented one of my posts as being a “smart piece”. I was absolutely beaming for a week. The thing was, unbeknownst to Walt, I was on the verge of giving up on blogging. His compliment came at just the right time that I decided to keep going.
Even though Walt was at the top of the tech world I appreciated his willingness to take a few minutes out of his day to say a few kind words to a nobody like me. He may even have forgotten, but I never will.
Thanks Walt and enjoy your retirement.
