Amidst what otherwise is a San Francisco week for me, I spent yesterday down in the Valley.
Without really trying to, it worked out that I ended up hitting all the power schmooze spots around Palo Alto: coffee at Coupa Cafe, breakfast at Buck’s, lunch at Il Fornaio, coffee at University Cafe, yada yada yada…
The highlight, though, was when I — literally — bumped into my former boss, Justice Kennedy (I was a law clerk to Justice Kennedy back in 1994). I ended up spending about an hour having a glass of wine and catching up with the Justice, and his wife. Pretty random, but it was alot of fun to catch up with my old boss, who in addition to being a relatively important guy is also very nice and fun to talk with.
