@VICTORY THE CREATOR
This was the most ambitious project I’ve ever embarked on and I hope you like it. My biggest take away from this was that we need to rethink housing and this doesn’t just start in legislation. Did you know the Supreme Court made segregation illegal in 1917? Heck it’s still around today. While people can definitely argue this ultimately boils down to a class issue I’d say it’d be short sighted not to consider other facts such as race, gender, etc.

Books I’d definitely recommend
Color of law – Richard Rothstein: details the extent of American segregation
WALKABLE CITY: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time – Jeff Speck: City planner explains walkability and details a practical way on how we actually get there. (don’t agree with everything in the book, but still a great place to start when thinking about how to get to realistically peak walkability.)
Lifeblood: Oil, Freedom, and the Forces of Capital – Matthew T. Huber: A great educational read that discusses how America’s thirst for oil has rooted itself into America’s identity and so much more.
How to Kill a City: Gentrification, Inequality, and the Fight for the Neighborhood – PE Moskowitz: This has a lot of love put into it. Moskowitz travels to cities like New Orleans, San Francisco, Detroit and New York and contextualizes the displacement taking place as a result of gentrification. They interview those feeling the pressure of displacement and those, (some ignorantly), benefiting from the displacement of others. A really great book.
Also things to do other than read is to start engaging in community. Go volunteer somewhere local, go to city council meeting, actually vote for local officials who support affordable housing.

Site Reliability Can No Longer Be An Afterthought | Robert Ross – FireHydrant
FireHydrant (https://bit.ly/2URa8l8) is a purpose-built tool for reliability. With FireHydrant, businesses can better manage and learn from incidents, work with their legal and marketing teams, and all the way through customer service. This is a tool for the entire reliability lifecycle.
Reliability has become an important business metric because when there are problems, it’s more than just a few systems down within a company; it’s about the brand and image of the company.
According to Ross, reliability is not an engineering metric, but a business metric. He says, “The engineers may own the reliability and they might be responsible for the reliability, but really there are so many stakeholders that come into play when there is, in fact, an outage.” To that, Ross includes the market and legal teams, as well as public relations. He offers an example of when Slack had to issue $8.2 million in refunds because of breaching their SLAs. This reliability issue required the legal team to get involved and then marketing had to step in to smooth things over.
