One of the strangest parts of getting older is seeing news articles about people dying. Not just the celebrities, but people I knew, or people that were well known in the tech industry. When I was youngers death seemed like a weird far away thing. You go to the random funeral every once in awhile, but it is too infrequent to really register. Now people a generation older than me are starting to die of normal old age causes. It certainly reinforces the idea that it’s important to live meaningful decades before you approach retirement age.
