Lunch at Logitech

Today I went and visited Engelbart for lunch at Logitech in order to talk about what we are going to do for this month and next month for the Hyperscope project. You know, it's funny, even after working with the project for about 8 months now I still get a little nervous when I go and see Doug. I have to admit, I'm still a little bit of an awe struck kid. It's still a little intimidating for me to really connect with Douglas. Sometimes it's like, who am I to tell Douglas Engelbart that some feature can't be done or there might be some way that we can do a certain feature in a way that will be more effective using current browser technology. It's always a bit of a trip.


But it's such a wonderful feeling, isn't it? Like a former co-worker of mine at Roxen Internet Software so aptly phrased it: "Actually, it's great to be working at a place where you are the worst of the programmers -- because then the minds of your co-workers are really sharp, guaranteed!"

It's kind of exhilarating, the great things you can pull off together in environments like that.

Johan, thats a great point. It's true; I'd much rather be continiously around people that are better than me. Thats easy here in the Bay Area :) There are so many amazingly smart people here, who have talents in many directions, not just coding. It's both very inspiring and humbling at the same time.
