And that’s about it. I interviewed Adam in Union Square on Monday morning before they all left for the airport. Waiting for the taxi in the hotel lobby, we started dissecting what lessons from the US event could transfer to the UK one. This included Aq doing some “blue sky thinking” in the hotel lobby on Monday morning which was cool but potentially landed me with a shed load more work. Nothing unusual there!
The rest of the holiday was not really LUG Radio related, apart from shooting some video of the sights and sounds of San Francisco (cable cars, Golden Gate bridge etc. etc.) I also edited the live show recording whilst in Pacific Grove. It’s not brilliant but not bad for being edited on a laptop’s sound card on the road. I think this is the first LUG Radio episode not mixed for release by Jono. 🙂
It was a pleasure to travel with the gents and to hang out for a few days. Usually we meet up and LRL and chat online but the former is frantic and the latter isn’t a fantastic communication medium. Having a couple of days of chatting, coming up with stupid ideas (some of which might even come to fruition) and getting to know everyone a bit better on a personal level was cool, especially Adam and Chris who I got to spend more time with than the others.
I was invited to visit the Google campus (aka the Googleplex) by Kynan so dropped in on the Wednesday. It was great to wander round the various buildings, conference areas and see the fantastic range of facilities, especially the food. With the vibrating chairs, sleep pods, swimming pools, a gym and more besides it seemed like a pretty cool place to work. 🙂Pin It
