Oogling Google

I spent the last couple of days at SciFoo - a weekend long conference party for very geeky people. Not the least of the attractions was the location - Google's headquarters, the famed GooglePlex. I have met a papal astronomer (his office is above the pope's bedroom in Castle Gandolfo), the designer of a car that flies (actually, a road worthy airplane) and eaten lots of the famed Google food.

I am now the proud owner of an official "Blogger" sweatshirt and a nifty little device that stores solar power and can recharge almost any small electronic gadget. I'm sitting by the hotel pool, exchanging photons for electrons in the California sun.

After almost a month on the road, what do I want most? To go home!


  1. you missed a strange weather day here in SE PA... thunder rumbled from 11am till around 8pm... some times loud, sometime in the distance.

    Sounds like a fun trip...what is the famed Google food, BTW? Most of the computer geeks I know live on candy and caffeine.
