I’m in Silicon Valley this weekend for a conference being held at Stanford University. Haven’t seen much so far, but have to admit it’s not quite how I expected. Palo Alto is actually very pretty and incredibly green and lush rather than solely being made up of anonymous sheds. My perceptions are probably being helped along by the weather being stunning at the moment — 30 degrees C and clear blue skies. My most Bay Area experience so far has been seeing my first Segway in action. Strange.
