I was invited to talk about whatever I want. I chose to talk about a general truism that’s close to my heart: Nothing is right or wrong in a vacuum, and context matters.

It was a lot of fun and look forward to doing more stuff like this in the future.

I’m sure some of viewpoints will change in the future, but I think it turned out pretty good all considering.
