Center of Tech World?

I spent all of last week in the Bay Area. I took the CalTrain to work on one of the days. After getting off in Mountain View, I saw a long list of bus shuttles to take passengers from the station to various companies. Google, Yahoo, Apple, and Microsoft all had a shuttle bus. Wow, now that feels like the center of the world!

I also spent a couple of nights at Hotel Avante. What I really like about this place is that they leave a puzzle on your bed as part of the nightly turn-down service. However, this time I noticed that the puzzle was very similar to something that I ask interview candidates! I guess it's time to expire that question.

Finally, Sacca summarizes what I hate about voice mail: Voicemail is so broken. Until someone can really make it easy for me to extract a number from a voicemail, file the message away for later, label it, quickly find it again, search over it, forward it, reply at my convenience, etc etc, I am going to stick to email. It takes some time to get used to the blinking red light on my phone. But anything is better than going through those painful menus.
