What Is The World Coming To?

[NOTE: Oops! Forgot to publish this a few weeks ago!]

On the plane trip down I saw three laptops open (including my own), and all three were Macs. Times: are they a-changin’?

I spent the weekend in beautiful Palo Alto, California attending Startup School hosted by Y-Combinator and Stanford BASES. It was great! We (all 600+ of us) filled up Stanford’s Kresge Auditorium and listened to a day full of speakers talking about tech startups from a variety of perspectives.

Meeting up with the other attendees outside of the conference was the best part of the trip. I talked with a bunch of people from all over the country (and even from up in Canada), and came away feeling energized to work on my own projects again.

There was a neat hacker party on Saturday night called Super Happy Dev House. I had never been to something like that before, and had a good time alternating between meeting more tech people and working my projects. A++ NERD PARTY. WOULD ATTEND AGAIN.

I didn’t get to sleep before 2:30 though, and had to get up at 7:30 this morning. Woe is me! I’m getting so old.

    I have been keeping track of laptops in cafes, libraries, bars, etc. I go to – in Pullman and outside.

    Macs are generally 40 – 70%, depending on the culture of the place.

    Invest! ;-)
