While I didn't capture any good pictures like Josh Simon, I also attended Greg Papadopoulos' Technology@Sun meeting in Santa Cruz this week. Unlike many technology conferences which are dominated by people talking at you for several hours at a time, the meeting was quite interactive with several opportunities to network with peers, most of whom I have never met in person. In fact, I actually got to meet not one but two of the Sun's most elusive species, Technology Directors. This was doubly exciting as I am also a Technology Director. Even better, we actually had a guest speaker I wanted to hear: Juan Enriquez. I had high hopes after reading both his books and wasn't disappointed. Can't wait until next year.
