Last week: Last week, I wrote about participating in a conference that was entirely in virtual reality, so I feel an obligation to debrief you all on the experience. There are some current limitations – the headset has limited battery, using the technology takes a good amount of time to learn, and the VR environment can make you get vertigo – but there is real merit in immersive technologies. I loved the ability to turn my head and “look” at someone when they were speaking to me – it felt like a real meeting. It won’t replace a handshake, but VR can transform.

Looking ahead: I’ve already had a dozen meetings on legislation that is coming up impacting my business and the environment. In the coming weeks, I’ll continue to advocate, locally and in Tallahassee, for the positions I support. I’m very excited about proposed legislation from state Reps Overdorf and LaMarca, putting a priority on water infrastructure funding and resiliency, respectively. As an engineer, as a native Floridian and as a father, these are truly the most important issues that we’re facing in the next couple decades. We need to address these issues today, and we all need to get involved.
