For this year’s LWIA Charity T-Shirt Fundraiser, we’re doing something ever so slightly different.
Instead of ripping into AWS with the enthusiastic precision of a bobcat on stimulants, we’re acknowledging a simple truth:
Without S3, our beloved Internet would be a boring desert of particularly crappy ASCII art.
So for once, let’s give credit where credit is due. (Not to Bezos; never to Bezos.)
Thank you, S3, for making our favorite things possible — from Netflix, Twitter, Reddit, and all the other ways we waste time at work to Slack, LinkedIn, Salesforce, and all the other services we use to pretend we’re not wasting time at work.
Your T-shirt purchase supports 826 National, a multi-chapter youth writing network that helps kids discover and hone their passion for writing.
Our hope is that at least one of these kids will grow up to be the next Corey Quinn.
