TED Last week. What Happened Yesterday. Today's Agenda.

The rollercoaster of my "high Beta" life continues its relentless pace.

Last week: TED was a phenomenal experience, and I am grateful for the connections that got me a chance to mingle with some of the brightest minds in the world, including a 5-minute conversation with Al Gore (!!!). Got a chance to meet a BMW executive who took me behind the wheel of a hydrogen-powered BMW 750 to showcase its seamless switching between H2 and conventional gasoline modes.

BIL was a huge hit, and while I felt unprepared for my speech/presentation, it seems the audience received it enthusiastically and I had strangers mob me after the talk to continue the conversation. More on that later.

Yesterday: Car accident. No bodily injury as far as I can tell, but car is gone. If you're a RL friend, can fill you in on details of that by voice or email.

Today: As VP Membership of Adobe Toastmasters, I am hosting my good friend, Bruno Bowden (lead engineer at Google Earth), to speak at Adobe's San Jose HQ office at 4pm and share secrets/hidden parts of Google Earth to an audience of Adobe folks. Non-Adobe employees are welcome to come by if you are in San Jose - just email me your particulars and I can pass your name to Security for a guest pass.

Chocolates will be served by Cacao Anasa.

From time to time, I want to curl up in a ball and sleep for a week straight.

This is one of those weeks.

But no rest for the wicked, as the saying goes.

Only two bags of this design in the world ... Only two bags of this design in the world ...

Last year @ TED, Jawbone showcased their wares, but teased everyone by saying they are not for sale. Now, they are free in every bag.
