This blog is starting to look like the beginning of the apocalypse. Not only a widespread pandemic but protests everywhere, worsen things up. I do sympathize with the cause and think its important to do something to ensure a change is made in society itself, but I also believe some people are taking advantage of the situation and even confirming the bias in many cases. Oh, the irony. What a time to be in the USA!
Although things at Tacoma are a lot better compared to other big cities, I hope demonstrations turn more peaceful so local businesses and public transportation operate without problems. Some people really depend on those!
On the other hand, things here at Liftport, are getting better. Michael made a pitch deck that feels like a first step for really funding this idea. It seems we are all making some progress on our own tasks. The online course I bought is so detailed that those 40 hours of material may easily turn in a 160-hour learning process. I’m learning a lot on Web development, but also catching a little on how to build a start-up from the ground considering fundraising, networking, and operations. And we even cleaned the office a little (we really needed it) which personally gives me some peace of mind.
Our word of the week is optimism, things will get better sooner or later (hopefully). Next week we will have our reviews as interns and see what to do for a brighter future.
