Congrats, team; we survived 2016.

(Well, depending on what time zone you're in, you maybe have a little more time, but I believe in you.)

As people have pointed out, 2017 will likely be worse in many ways, but at least we've been warned. ("Warning: may contain fascism," I quipped tonight.)

Email from my friend Scott:
May your 2017 be as awesome as it is Phibonacci* -- and may your whole year be prime time.**

QED,
Scott


*That is, 2017 satisfies a Fibonacci-looking identity in terms of the Euler phi Function: phi(2017) = phi(2016) + phi(2015). The last such year was 1601, and the next is 4337.

**Also, 2017 is prime.***

***And so is 20170123456789.
Addendum: My sister-in-law posted her Instagram #2016bestnine, and of course most of them relate to the baby, and thinking about this baby growing up I wonder if that would be a helpful motivator for me -- to remind myself that I want to help build a better world for hir.
