A good aftertaste of yesterday

Some days just leave a good aftertaste in your mouth when you wake up the next day.

Last night Maryam and I saw humor writer Dave Barry at the Flint Center, along with thousands of other Silicon Valleyites. I’ve never laughed so much. I remember taking my glasses off five times cause the tears were rolling down my face. And, as I looked around, the entire crowd was doing the same. He got a standing ovation at the end.

Whenever I meet someone with real talent I just sit back in awe. Dave has it. If you ever get a chance to hear him speak, definitely do it.

The rest of the day was great too! Working backward I met with Tim Connor, Venture Capitalist at USVP. He gave me lots of tips on things I should be looking at for my show. Before that I was at eBay. Met with Lenn Pryor, and a bunch of other really smart people. More on that on my show in a couple of weeks.

I must apologize to Venture Capitalist Jeff Clavier. I screwed him yesterday cause my calendar was all messed up. I owe him a really nice bottle of wine cause of that.

Anyway, before eBay I was over at Winnov, seeing the future of University and Corporate Training with Olivier Garbe, founder/CEO and one of my former bosses. Nice to see him again and things there look like they are really rocking and rolling.

Yesterday morning started out with meeting former Microsoft exec, Brad Chase (he played key roles in the formation of MSN as well as Internet Explorer) so it was a real honor to meet him, and he gave me a great demo of Vizrea, a new content sharing system for cell phone owners.

Today I’m gonna hang out with friends and family, hope you’re doing the same.

  1. No worries, I got to see Maryam, and my buddy & former colleague Steve Wilhelm, for a few minutes that made the trip worth it.
    But yeah, next time I tell you “2pm OK tomorrow?” twice the previous evening, check your calendar before saying yes :-).
