Spent most of this week in transit. Today I'm exhausted and a tiny bit jet lagged. I went to Palo Alto's California Avenue area and interviewed with a small startup in that area. I learned much from the trip, but unfortunately I did not learn some of the things that I had been hoping to learn coming into this week.
I wish I had had the money to have invested in making the trip seem ultimately more worthwhile with respect to my considerable "geographical disadvantage". (I've decided to refrain from ranting, at the time being, about my hatred of the airlines and the absurdity of their hub layouts and pricing schemes.) Certainly, I particularly wish I had had the chance to spend more time going "door to door" with some of the other companies in the Bay Area, particularly the San Rafael area, in one longer trip.
