Don’t Drone On

Hello and happy Thursday.

So, I’ve got a drone on the way—the Skydio 2+—and I’m excited. Before saying more, in the name of transparency you should know that I’ve met the team at Skydio and I’m a fan of their products and of how they’re operating as a company, including its support for Ukraine. That said, their drones are objectively cool—just check out this video and you’ll see what I mean.

Now, if I’m honest, I must admit that my days of extreme sports, mountain climbing, and jumping trucks over exploding ditches are well behind me. So why, you may ask, am I geeking out about this new gear?  Because drones are about more than cool YouTube videos, they are a growing part of how individuals engage the world around them, how industries operate and grow, and how nations go to war—and I want first-hand experience with this tech. But with these advancements also come some challenges. Before we get into all of that, though, let me give you some background.
