I was going to post something here saying that I’ve now been at Google for one year, but I received some mail today that kind of preempts that. I just learned that Ryan VanderWall, one of our young helpdesk guys at work, was diagnosed with advanced, metastasized liver cancer a couple weeks ago. He’s spent the last couple weeks in the hospital undergoing radiation therapy.

Go check out Ryan’s blog, and consider donating if you can.
