A little bit of random acts of crazy
I'm back from meeting up with the www.smbmvptour.com folks and the Gnome. Last week was a study in transportation. Started out taking a train to Bakersfield, then a bus to Palm Springs for the HTCIA conference. After the conference was over, took a plane to San Francisco and then caught a connecting flight to Phoenix. Ken Shafer and his team from the Technology Wizards group were not only wonderful hosts but it was a wonderful event.
Then we loaded up two van loads of folks to drive from approximately the airport area to the downtown train station.
The young man in the front is Michael Johnson who just happened to be wearing a geek shirt and we befriended him long enough for the group photo. If you look around the tech industry we're all getting too old. We need more youngsters.
We went via train from Portland to Seattle. During the trip Jeff Middleton had made arrangements for sandwiches and food to be on board. Needless to say we had lots to eat and had leftover food that we didn't want to go to waste. A few of the more adventurous souls took the excess sandwiches, salads and cookies and handed them out to train travelers on a Friday night.
In a pretty fuzzy video hopefully you get the feel for a spontaneous random act of crazy that made more than a few people's evening.
Then on to Seattle where we finished up the Portland/Seattle venues and all went our separate ways for a bit.
As we head back to work tomorrow (or today for those of you downunder), just a reminder that random act of crazy is sometimes a very fun, memorable thing to do.
