A funny anecdote from this week. I attended a tech review meeting with maybe ten other guys from various nearby companies. A few minutes into the presentation, one of the guys asks the presenter, “where’d you go to school?” A quick back and forth, and they realize they were roomates in graduate school, I’m guessing at least ten years ago. Heh. Then, after the meeting, I’m yakking with another attendee and it turns out he and I had a brief correspondence a few years ago. I check my cell phone and bang, his number is still there. That’s the valley for you.
