What are you up to lately?
Stuart – Was sick for most of the holiday’s (not fun). I’m now Board Chair at London Public Library. Really enjoying the contract position at Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry help desk. Keeping fingers and toes crossed that it turns into a permanent position.
Derek – Had a nice holiday season. Enjoying the Google Home mini and Chromecast I got for Christmas! Was just at Kathleen’s company country-themed new year party on Friday, I came in second place in the Bloom token community rewards program to take home USD $3,000 of BLT, and thinking of becoming a crypto-focused YouTuber/podcaster.
